- Just place the lid of pan with a diameter of 4" to 8" flower facing up
- Heat resistant to 400°F
- Made in China
- Prevents pasta, rice, quinoa, oatmeal, rice-a-roni, and more from boiling over, even if cooked at a roiling boil. Invaluable for those of us with short attention spans cooking anything that boils or boils then simmers.
- Can cook in a smaller pot with less water, which isn't as heavy to carry
- skims scum off your stock (truly!)
- use a small one in a large pot to submerge corn and artichokes, or any other floating thing you try to boil, with or without the petals in place
- put on the pan of ""leftovers"" while you're eating, it will keep the food warm but let some steam escape so the food isn't soggy when you go for seconds or need to box it up.
- works as a steamer lid
- works a a generic lid that can be lifted with bare hands (use both hands to tilt up away from face to avoid steaming either hands or face)
- my mom claims it's also good in the microwave but so far I've just used it stovetop.
- The flower petals make it easy to get a quick peek at how food is progressing without dripping condensed water all over the stove or letting out all the heat. You can also pop in some seasoning if you kinda forgot to earlier, like you would never, ever do...
- With precautions to not steam yourself or heat the spoon unduly, it can be used as a spoon rest after stirring the food partway through cooking.
The spill stopper is so wonderful it probably also cures cancer. I've had mine over a year and use it all the time. It's my favorite kitchen invention by far and worth every penny
I use a gas stove, and turn it on high, and forget it for items like pasta. I love it.
It's become a favorite gift
