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.

Very Innovative
After shopping for replacement lids for my really old stainless cookware whose steam-release valves had all broken, I found this wonderful product! I only needed to buy one to fit my different-sized pots/pans. I LOVE it! Just yesterday, I was making mashed potatoes.....they always seem to boil over and make a mess regardless of my attention....however, this time, I brought them to a boil then completely turned off the heat and left this lid on, which seals itself. The potatoes finished cooking with no mess or spillage! I have not yet washed in the dishwasher, only by hand

Great Lid
I have the Norpro Smart Universal version of this lid. Except for the shape of the knob on the top they are identical. My lid cost be $29.95 on Amazon. The lid is so great that I am going to buy the Kuhn Rikon two-for-one for my adult children, both of whom a very good cooks.

The silicone has held up very well so far on my Norpro Smart Universal Lid, so I expect the Kuhn Rikon to do the same.

Great idea that really works!
I was interested in this Kuhn Rikon Smart Lid for myself. When I saw that Sur La Table was offering a two-for-one deal, I ordered right away. (Ordered a quantity of 1, and they ship 2)

Have had the lid for less than a month and have already used it several times on several different pans. Worked like a charm each time.

So glad that Kuhn Rikon can up with such a handy item, and and very happy with the 2-for-1 offer from Sur La Table! Fast shipping, too.
