No more struggling with plastic wrap or foil. This handy lid creates an airtight seal and works with any smooth-rimmed bowl or pot. Heat-resistant, food-safe silicone lid allows for quick cooking, steaming and reheating in either the oven or the microwave and can also be used as a splatter guard. Simply place the lid over a bowl, pot or container to seal. To release the seal, simply slide the lid in any direction. Lids sold individually.
I was given these as a wedding gift a couple months ago and they are hands down one of my favorite gifts. I was skeptical at first because they dont look like they will do what everyone says they will do but after trying them out a couple times, Im impressed.
I use them on top of bowls in the fridge and to cover glass containers that I cant find the lid to anymore. They work out great when transporting a food or beverage item in the car to a friends house with out a spill in the car. Saran will still have its uses in my house but these lids reduce the amount of waste from using too much plastic wrap.
This is a stocking stuffer for everyone in my family this year
I have seen a lot of products that are a replacement to plastic wrap. But this is as simple as putting the flower on top and it actually seals to the bowl. The seal is stronger than you would expect. You can also use it in the microwave or on a skillet as a splatter guard. Great value! Great product!
I don't understand how this works, but boy does it. Place the flower on whatever item you would like to seal, an vuala, sealed. I was skeptical, but to prove a point, my friend then swung it around by the handle. Talk about nerve wreaking! But no spills to report, the lid held its seal until the bowl was safely returned to the table
My favorite use for this is reheating and cooking foods in the microwave because I hate the idea of plastic wrap melting on my food. It works perfectly! These silicone lids are also excellent for covering up bowls in the fridge, or even covering up your salad bowl if you're dining al fresco
I love this design and I like how it seals and covers your food and you can also use it to cover your food in the microwave. I am going to buy the rest of the sizes that they have. I really like the fact that I don't need to use saran wrap anymore and having to continuously buy saran wrap. Since these are silicone, I'm sure they will last longer
This is so much better than plastic wrap when microwaving. With plastic wrap, it's so hard to remove it once you've heated your food whereas you can use a utensil to lift an edge and break the seal and then just remove the lid by the handle -- no worries about the steam hurting you. Great for the oven and refrigerator too.
It seals anything with a smooth edge really well; just press down in the middle lightly. Although you may be able to lift the whole container, you are NOT suppose to use the handle to carry things around.
If you're using it as a splatter guard, you may want to have it off to one side to allow moisture to escape but be careful that your flame isn't so high that it extends beyond the edge of the pot or pan you're using -- this item is not flame-proof.
So convenient and cute and storable. I'm tired of being so wasteful. Our environment doesn't need any more throw aways if we have an alternative and as my lids seem to disappear so frequently well you see where I'm going. thanks
daughter took my medium sized lid. I LOVE these lids- you can leave a pot of tomatoes (or whatever) stewing on the stove overnight and it will loose no liquid. Also good for substitute for seran wrap on cold items- like if you take a salad to a potluck. These lids are the best new invention for the cook in decades.
I have been intrigued by these creative bowl seals for some time and always like ways to avoid trash. The idea that they can be used on a variety of bowl sizes makes it easier than having a specific lid for each bowl. Hope I get some as a gift one day.
Best Answer:I believe so but it haven't used them that way, probably wouldn't because I don't cook in plastic. Check what it says on the site. I bought it for its storage capabilities on serving dishes and becaus they're beautiful (saw them at a friend's house who really liked them).
I have read all these wonderful reports on this product BUT not one of them answered my question. Does this product seal on a bowl or pot of cold food or liquid? Or do the contents have to be hot or warm in order to create a seal?
Best Answer:I love it! I use it for covering a dish to cook in the microwave or to heat things. I also use it instead of plastic wrap to keep things fresh in the fridge. It seals well, but will release steam when it need to.
can this lilypad cover be used on black cast iron skillets when frying chicken?

Best Answer:I have this but never used it that way, and I would not recommend doing that. What you want is a splatter screen, or use a tall sided pot. I can imagine the lid falling in, or oil collecting on it so when you lift it up the oil drips on the stove top.
