    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    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.

    A must have for those operating griddles and even grills! Sandwiches and meats done on the griddle cook more perfectly and evenly and quickly!. This is what we were needing and it turned out to be perfect. Will buy more in the future.

    We use these in our Grilled Cheese shop to cover sandwiches and quicken the melt time while sandwiches are on the flat top. They do the trick, the only complaint I have is that a few have had the handle hole drilled slightly off center, this doesn't affect the usability, just an oversight in quality control.

    Great for steaming meats on the flat top grill. It holds up well and takes a beating. This size is good for individual servings. Replaceable top is convenient as that is the only part that has every failed me on these basting covers.

    Love these steamer lids. They are the perfect size for single sized dishes and tall enough to cover a large burger piled high with goodies. They are light weight and made of quality materials.

    8" Aluminum dome, This product worked great, I liked it better than the 10" because it took up less space on the flat top. As you can see it got a lot of use !!

    I purchased this item about a month ago. The quality and weight are good and the item functions quite well. I will purchase this item again if the need arises.

    i love this cover! it does the job very well and very easy to clean. i love how quickly it melts the cheeses definitely recommend!

    from Morning Glory Restaurant Posted on

    The cooks use these all of the time. They work great to melt the cheese on the burgers or to help to get veggies sautéed fast for our omelette.

    from Red River Posted on

    This cover works great on my hibachi grill!!! Food cooks faster and stays warm longer since I can now cover it up over low heat. Great quality, I've had it for about a year now and it has held up well. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

    Love these Basting Covers, we have several of them in different sizes, they're light weight yet do a great job melting cheese & warming things quickly. However the last one I ordered did not come with a knob, so I guess I'll have to order another one!

    from Jump Start Cafe Posted on

    Great dome lid for all our griddle work. The dome is light but that does not impede its function. Gets the job done and at the price you can't go wrong!

    Handle wobbles and gets a bit warm but does what it is supposed to. Used for burgers and cheese steaks and it certainly assists in melting the cheese.
