    Great cheese cover melt top burgers flat Handle perfect easy

    This works great for steaming food, and melting cheese. Just have to be careful with the handle, they don't hold up the best. The screw comes loose pretty easy.

    Love this just wish it was a bit bigger! This is perfect for quick heating eggs and bacon on a griddle top. Great for quick orders!

    These work pretty good. Over time the know will melt, but that is to be expected. we are using them to steam burgers on the flat top.

    We have a larger size round dome basing cover that we are very satisfied with. It's great on the flat grill however needed something smaller to place in the sauce pans. This does the trick.

    Okay product. The handles tend to fall off and the construction is pretty cheap. It is however a cheap product so I guess you get what you pay for

    This does exactly what it says. It's not quite as heavy as others that we have used in the past but it has served us well. We will buy more when we need more

    Good quality dome, only complaint is that the handle is cheap and broke after the first time i used it. i would buy this product again

    A very economically priced basting cover. Delivered exactly as promised. I paid only a fraction of the price my local food provider would have charged by purchasing on Webstaurant Store!

    A good size cover to melt the cheese of one burger or a salmon fillet. It is light weight and durable with no dents from a clumsy fry cook. The aluminum surface is also easy to clean.

    I use this cover daily for burgers or Phillys to melt cheese or to heat something faster. I am purchasing another in case I have a few things at once.

    from H & L on the Hudson Posted on

    Lid is a great size for burgers and sandwiches. Sturdy but lightweight. Sadly, the screw knob design is lacking. I have two of these and one needs to keep tight almost daily and the other has been stripped out since day one.

    from Celebrations Food & Drink Posted on

    This product is great, it decreases the time required for cheese to melt when making burgers and results in a more evenly cooked and moist piece of meat. I also use this when doing eggs, it's a simple product but definitely works well.

    Bought a couple of these and have been in use daily for close to a year now with no visible signs of wear and tear. Well made product and performs as expected.

    I absolutely love the American Metalcraft BA840A 8" Round Aluminum Dome Basting Cover!!! It speeds up cooking on the grill and its compact size is perfect for small items.

    from Ruffled Feathers Posted on

    Love it. The bastng dome performs like its built to do. This product actually makes our food products shine, taste and finish like their intended.

    from The Dock Posted on

    These work as expected. We have multiple covers and have used them daily for 8 months. Use them a lot on our flat top to quickly heat up proteins.

    This is well made and great for burgers and pork chops on the flat griddle. It is aluminum and easy to clean. Very nice product.

    from Fernando's Posted on

    Perfect for our grill. Helps our burgers cooks faster and melting cheese in no time. Will be ordering more as needed. Cant beat the price.

    from Russ H. Posted on

    This is a light weight basting cover. It great for melting and a perfect fit for a single sandwich. The handle does requires assembly.(screw on)

    from Go cheez Posted on

    Looks great and staff was super excited to receive it for melting cheese on our burger patty. Sadly, within the first week, the plastic knob melted. I wish there was something similar but more long lasting.
