Kuhn Rikon Smart Lid with Auto-Release Valve
Enjoy perfect pan-frying, steaming, braising, simmering and sautéing with this innovative universal lid. A favorite in our kitchens, the Smart Lid features a silicone gasket that seals onto almost any pan and a groundbreaking dual-setting valve that can be set to trap steam in the pan or release it automatically.
When set to automatic, steam builds up under the lid until it pushes the valve open, releasing excess moisture and ensuring crispy-skinned, yet moist fried chicken, mouth-watering pork chops and more. With the valve locked closed, the Smart Lid seals in moisture—great for rice dishes, perfectly poached salmon, stewed and braised meats, or steamed veggies.
Thanks to the unique stepped silicone gasket, the Smart Lid forms a tight seal on almost any pot, making it an excellent alternative to a drawer full of bulky and hard-to-store lids. The clear glass center makes it simple to keep an eye on cooking foods, and the Smart Lid is dishwasher safe for hassle-free cleanup.
