Description

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.

Features Hide

  • Dual-function valve can be opened to release steam automatically or closed to seal in moisture
  • Stepped silicone gasket forms a tight seal on pans from 9" to slightly over 11" in diameter
  • Flower-shaped knob provides a secure, slip-free grip when placing or removing the lid
  • Tempered-glass center allows cooks to monitor foods as they cook

Specifications Show

  • Manufacturer: Kuhn Rikon
  • Material: Tempered glass, silicone, plastic
  • Care: Dishwasher safe
  • Important Safety Notice: When cooking on a gas stove do not allow the flame to extend beyond the base of the pan. Take special care when the lip of the Smart Lid projects beyond smaller-diameter pan edges. Never leave a pot sealed with a Smart Lid unattended while cooking on a gas stove
  • Dimensions: 12¼" diameter
  • Made in China

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 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.

Ooops!
I bought this lid because of its features, not reading the reviews that point out that it is not recommended for gas cooktops. Well, I have one, and have used it without difficulty. The thing you have to be careful of is the width of the flame--make sure the flame is totally under the skillet, and does not lap over the sides. If you do this, there is no problem. I only gave it 4 stars because the picture shows the lid being used over a gas burner, so I didn't even think there was a problem. But, I will continue to use it, CAREFULLY!

Not very good as I imagined
It's hard to fit my pots and pans because of the place of their handles. Easy to clean but hard to wipe it off because of the silicon materials (not very slippery for dish clothes).
Glass lid is good to look through the inside without open it.

I haven't used the lid often enough to give it 5 stars but it works as I had hoped.
I have a stainless steel cooktop & cleaning it becomes tedious. This lid will help keep splatters in the pan rather than on the surface of the cooktop.

WHY would the universal lid NOT be recommended for gas stovetops?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2014
Best Answer: It might be related to the size of the pan related to the size of the burner. The outer edge of the lid is silicone, and most silicone is only heat resistant to 450-500 degrees F. The flame of an open gas burner can hit 3000 degrees F. If your flame comes up the side of the pan at all, the silicone won't stand a chance

How ""heat-resistant"" is this product

Can this product go from stovetop straight into the oven without damage?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2014
Best Answer: This lid is not suggested for oven use. The instructions say it's recommended for electric and induction stoves only.

TO do the buy one get one free...do you order one or 2?
Melinda C on Dec 20, 2014
Best Answer: Order only one (1), and they will send you two. A sales rep told me to notify them, after receiving the shipment, if you receive only one. I had no problems, at all.

We have used this lid a couple of times, since it arrived this month, and it works great!

Is this lid slightly dome-shaped, or is it more flat?
Susan B on Oct 19, 2015
Best Answer: It has a very slight dome. Mostly flat. But note: if the handle of your pans come up at an angle so they are above the plane of the top of the pan, this lid will not work well. The lid winds up resting on the handle of anything less than a 12" pan, obviating its multi-purpose feature. On our cast iron pans it is fine because the handles are even with the upper surface.

how can i use the "special offer" deal?
elizabeth on Dec 9, 2014
Best Answer: This is a great lid to use with a variety of pan/pot sizes. In addition, there is a valve to allow steam to escape if you like. The only drawback is that it is better to use the lid on electric surfaces as opposed to gas. If the rim overlaps too much, the gas flames could be an issue.

Doh! I took apart the "smart" handle (one bolt holds all the parts together) to clean the inside of the valve - and now can't remember how to put it back together! Anyone have a graphic/schematic that shows how the pieces are re-assembled? Thanks! Kid-Who-Took-Apart-The-Engine-And-Now-Has-Too-Many-Pieces-Left-Over
