    great cheese cover melt burgers easy Handle top clean light

    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.

    Great product! it is the perfect size for the grill we can get all 4 of them side by side no problem! Well built and would order another set! We use these to steam pot stickers and hold extremely well under the heat we put them in. Overall great product!

    from Chad Thai Posted on

    These are a must have if you are making burgers on a flat top - using these achieves the most perfect cheese melt over a burger! They are durable & easy to clean. With excessive use the black handle does tend to come off. All you have to do Is rescrew it in - quick fix. Highly recommend.

    Have used it a lot for close to a year, and has stood up well. We use it to melt cheese on our burgers, to steam vegetables, omelets, and baste eggs. Great product, very sturdy and durable so far. I can sit on the flat top grill for hours and the handle stays cool.

    from Bent Spoon Bistro Posted on

    These basting covers are a good value. They aren't super heavy duty, but for the price I wouldn't expect them to be. I did have one that the handle broke off after a couple weeks but these things get tossed around the griddle and kitchen a lot. I don't have a problem buying some extras at this price and even a more expensive one may have broken in my situation.


    We use these on a daily basis to quickly bring the temperature up on particular items. Fantastic little tool and cheap as dirt. Definitely recommend.

    We have used this product before. The only issue we have is the knobs seem to fall off. Maybe its the volume we use them for but we continue to use this product.

    from Hope Valley Diner and Catering Posted on

    We use these to melt cheese on foods on the flat top griddle. They get the job done fine and are easy to clean. The screw in the top handle doesn't last all that long. But worth the money.

    from The Weekday Cafe Posted on

    perfect ! Exactly what I was looking for and you cant beat the exceptional value for the price - light weight and very functional !

    from mike rawluk Posted on

    Recieved this item the other day, and finally had a chance to use it. For both melting cheese, and cooking fried eggs covered with a little bit of water. Nice product, this SS cover will last along time.

    from Joe Posted on

    This is a great product to use for heating steaming or melting. It is very durable and the plastic handle has help up really well!

    Posted on

    A wonderful tool for the flat top! Super easy to assemble, just as easy to clean. I know some other places use bowls and such to baste with or melt cheeses. This is certainly the tool to use!

    from Chef's Best Catering Posted on

    GREAT Product! I would recommend this product to anyone that is working on Breakfast! Great for making omelets and steaming Veggies. also Great to Steam Steaks for a quick recook

    from The Wicked Taco, Inc. Posted on

    We use this to melt cheese. They have held up to lots of abuse and many trips through the dishwasher. The plastic knob keeps cool even when in a hot environment.

    from Chanticleer Eatery Posted on

    Great price, easy to grab knob. It does not burn my workers hands like some of these covers. Like how it is a flat top and not rounded as well

    from GTG Posted on

    This is JUST what I was looking for! Needed something to cook our burgers faster, melt cheese onto meats, and keep splatter off the edges of the grill. This resolved all of those issues! I got 2 of them to use on my fire grill and my griddle. The 8 inch size is perfect for about everything.

    from Sunset Grill Posted on

    Love this dome.I use it for basted eggs. tho not classical technique but easier and a bit leaner—is to simply cover them as they cook. The steam that’s produced inside the pan as it’s covered provides the “basting” liquid to help cook the eggs through. You can even add a tablespoon or two of water to the pan before you cover it, as the extra liquid will increase the steaming process.I also use it to melt cheese on a burger,dozens of uses. easy to clean

    from Home use Posted on

    This cover holds in all the food's warmth and keeps it at the perfect temperature. Great size and shape. We are pleased with this purchase.

    from The Waves Restaurant Posted on

    Love this basting cover. It's a great item to have around when you need to apply a little steam -- it's very lightweight and I appreciate the heat-resistant handle. Be careful putting it in the dishwasher though - like any aluminum item, it got a little discolored.

    This is a great way to melt cheese on burgers. I use it all the time. I also use it to cook certain foods evenly, by keeping the heat it. Great product.

    from Havana Nights Café & Bakery Inc. Posted on

    This basting cover works wonders. It is really light weight and great for melting cheese with a quick splash of water. I recently ordered this and couldn't be happier.

    The 8" basting cover is well-made and light weight. It is a good cover for a small pan or griddle when you need to add heat to the top of something while cooking.

    Posted on

    This lid allows for even cooking of food on flattops or grills. It keeps heat on the inside which is how the food in question is heated from all sides. The handle material allows for light touching as heat isn't absorbed by it effectively.

    Good value. We use these as covers to melt cheese on burgers. Easy to clean. Not heavy duty, but works great with our application. We've used them with heavy volume and have not had issues.

    Posted on

    Just what I was looking for--I've needed a lid when making egg sandwiches on my 9" lodge cast iron skillet. Also useful when making griddled burgers and I need to steam-melt cheese! Simple but solid build, very light, great value.

    Posted on

    This product is great if you have a flat top. For burgers its super fast to melt the cheese with this cover. Easy to clean.

    Posted on

    Easy to clean, doesn't get too hot to handle during and after use. I just ordered another one so that I would have a spare.

    Posted on

    This basting cover works great! We use them for anything and everything. Steaming green peppers and onions for a Philly Cheese Steak, flash-melting cheese on burgers, steaming fish, etc.

    from Pizza 'N' Stuff Posted on

    We added a new chicken dish to our menu which has melted cheese on top, ordered 2 of these basting covers to use for this and they worked great

    from Golden Rule BBQ Posted on

    A huge asset to our operation. Light weight. Easy to clean. And the heat resistant handle has made this product a dream to use. We love them.
