Take years of hard use/abuse and keep on going. Purchased multiple times and will continue to purchase again. Good product that it tough to beat for the price.

Jeffrey O. from Governor's Quarters on 05/16/2022

Perfect size for my food truck. It is used often to cover burgers to speed the melting of cheese. Lightweight and compact, it is a necessity in my kitchen.

Lea V. from Eat It & Beet It, LLC on 04/25/2022

This is a really good cover. I use it daily at my shop to help speed up the melting of cheese. One slight issue with this product is that the handle begins to loosen after a bit of use and requires tightening. Be careful not to strip the screw. I've done that to one of these in the past.

Charles J. from Atlantic City Sub Shops on 02/20/2021

Very good product - we use at the cheesesteak shop and it was held up good - I would recommend keeping a screw driver on hand to tighten the knob as it comes loose woth extended use

We use this cover every day in our restaurant kitchen. It is great for covering items on the flat top grill to help cook evenly. Have had continued daily use for months.

Aluminum 10 1/4 in round Batting Covers are used 24/7 st our store. Veggies such as pepperedley and zuchinni and onions are all under that cover before serving.

Christopher M. from GBGC - Hattiesburg on 12/03/2019

I just started using them so far so good. In the past some of them i have gotten separate quickly from the nob and get lost in the dishwasher.

Nick V. from Williams Restaurant on 10/08/2019

Great cover for steaming. Very standard, light, and perfect size for most people. Handle is sturdy as well, does not come lose even under heavy use.

Daniel H. from Egg Wits on 05/01/2019

This american metalcraft 10 1/4" round aluminum basting cover is great! Looks very nice and presents the food nice. Keeps food warm and fits the plate nice.

Dan L. on 04/04/2019

These grill covers work great for a lot of different cooking. We are a quick service taco place. It is very important for us to heat up meat as quick as possible.

Dylan M. from FUEGO WACO - 2 on 02/05/2019

I love this basting cover. It fits at least 2 hamburgers at one time. Its super strong and a great size.The price is great as well.

Shena M. on 01/14/2019

Serves it's purpose, we have expensive lids on the line and we tried these because they are so cheap, they worked great in house and off site for bigger jobs.

Tony D. on 09/20/2018

This aluminum basting cover works perfectly for steaming all sorts of food on our flat top grill, from burgers to chicken to vegetables. It also helps speed up the cooking time so that we can get our orders out quicker.

Danielle M. from The Florida Club on 09/13/2018

This is a really useful tool when cooking on a flattop. Whether its melting cheese or quick cooking an item on the fly, this satisfies the time constraints of a busy kitchen.

Benjamin L. on 08/23/2018

This cover has worked flawlessly for us day in and day out. We use this every single day for covering grill food and they still look as good today as the day we bought them over a year ago. They scrub clean easily of melted stuck-on cheese and look as shiny as new. The handles are high quality and don't loosen up all the time like you find with other similar items. These are a very good value!

Karen K. from Deli Station on 08/01/2018

This cover, though a little expensive, is now a bare necessity in our kitchen; love the handle since it won't get hot while in the griddle. Actually bought three!

Carla T. from AMERMEX FROZEN PRD on 07/09/2018

The product works perfectly as described. It has held up well throughout time and is easy to clean and maintain, would highly recommend it to anyone!

Geoff S. from The Public House Tap & Grill on 06/02/2018

Product works well for our flat top grill surface, we use it to steam cheese on burger patties, as it gets a perfect melt every time.

Christopher B. from Boomers! Fountain Valley on 04/17/2018

Excellent product. I brought a 10" and 8". Craftmanship is good and easy to clean. I use my Basting Cover while cooking on the griddle. It's excellent for melting cheese and trapping the heat to speed up cooking time.
