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.

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.
Debbie L. from Hope Valley Diner and Catering Posted on 12/16/2014
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.

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

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.

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!
William P. Posted on 11/18/2014
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!
Brandon M. from Chef's Best Catering Posted on 11/17/2014
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

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.
Lysandro W. from Chanticleer Eatery Posted on 09/06/2014
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
Eric H. from GTG Posted on 08/18/2014
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.
Joni T. from Sunset Grill Posted on 08/10/2014
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

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.
Chris F. from The Waves Restaurant Posted on 07/13/2014
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.
Peter H. Posted on 04/07/2014
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.
Jacqueline A. from Havana Nights Café & Bakery Inc. Posted on 03/22/2014
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.
Sanif M. Posted on 02/02/2014
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.
Rodger T. Posted on 01/20/2014
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.
Jacob M. Posted on 10/08/2013
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.
Brian C. Posted on 09/01/2013
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.
Tim T. Posted on 05/24/2013
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.
Aaron H. Posted on 12/15/2012
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.
Debra B. Posted on 08/18/2011
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.
Dennis S. from Pizza 'N' Stuff Posted on 05/27/2011
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
Mike M. from Golden Rule BBQ Posted on 02/24/2011
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.
