Uses for Glass Casserole Lids

April 12, 2017

An old casserole lid covering a plate of leftovers.Over the years, I found I had more casserole lids than I had casserole dishes. I found an excellent use for them besides filling in for the odd pot lid. The smaller lids work great for covering a bowl or a plate of food when microwaving. I especially like it for microwaving my leftover oatmeal. Comes out like it is freshly made, same with rice or potatoes.


The lids are often available at the thrift shops for cheap so it's easy to get the right cereal bowl size. I love mine.

Great idea. I use mine for burner covers. The handles/knobs don't allow me to set a pot or pan on the burner and accidentally turning on the burner. I have ruined three now so my tip would totally work with these.
Also, the glass ones are excellent for making basted eggs as you can see inside!

Awhile back I dropped my one and only glass pot and shattered it. I stuck the lid in a cabinet and forgot all about it. A few weeks ago while doing a little fall cleaning, I came across it again and used it to cover something I was making in the microwave.
