great for grill or pan use and easy works well with flat top bbq. I bought this size but perhaps the next large size with more depth is more useful.

Big fan of this basting cover for cooking on our flat-top grill, speeds up cooking times and is easy to clean. Held up for the last couple years of use.

Sonya D. from Kiko on 01/26/2021

Hi quality. Works well on our grill for cooking burgers and other items where we need to speed up cooking or help melt cheese. Good.

Matthew S. from The Village Butcher on 11/07/2020

I really love these covers they are perfect for keeping things warm and also for cooking hamburgers and hot dogs on grill much faster !!

Catherine N. from Swallow Falls Country Store on 10/27/2020

This lid is the perfect size for melting cheese on hamburgers omelets or almost anything. The handle does not get hot to the touch and the height is perfect for sandwiches to fit under.

Amy M. from Hillsboro Hustle Saloon on 09/03/2020

How about a less than 3 minute over easy egg that you don't have to flip? That's what I can do with this cover. After the egg begins to firm up, just pour a tiny bit of water under the edge of the cover and the steam will finish cooking the egg. I've never made a better looking egg than what I can do with a lid. It's also great for melting some cheese on a burger. I freeze burgers from bulk hamburger meat. Covered, they cook much faster. The handle on this cover has never burned me. I'm totally pleased with this cover and what it can do for me in the kitchen.

Yi L. from Izumi on 07/05/2020

It's as good as you can expect for being aluminum, which is why I knocked off a star. The size is big, so make sure you have a need for this size. Steel is a bit easier to clean and heavier. If price is a concern, this aluminum one is not a bad deal.

These snap frames are literally the best thing. No need for taco boards that only get cluttered and unorganized. I use these to display weekly staff schedules.

Craig B. from KCC on 04/02/2020

Great product for using on our flat top grill to help evenly cook burgers and then melt cheese. The covers are sturdy and wash well in the dishwasher. May need extra scrubbing due to grease.

Jamie P. on 03/30/2020

Works great for melting cheeses. Also great for basting eggs or puffing omelet yes on the grills. Works fast and efficiently . Very durable as well

Kara P. from Marlboro Diner on 01/09/2020

These work perfect for melting cheese on a burger. Top it and squirt some water for steam and boom. Perfect burger. We use at all locations.

Perry F. from Charleston Sports Pub on 01/04/2020

This basting cover is awesome. I purchased this because I seen one similar at a restaurant. I saw how easy the chef made cooking hamburgers and melting cheese on the burgers where. Fast and still juicy burgers.

Arthur S. from My Madea's Cookin on 12/03/2019

Strong material. Used it a few times and it still looks new. Works as it should and the quality is great.

Sherry S. from Silapheth LLC // DBA: Asian Street Cravings on 11/28/2019

8 3/4 in round aluminum batting covers are always in use on one of our grills. Great items we could not live without on a daily basis.

Christopher M. from GBGC - Hattiesburg on 11/27/2019

This American Metalcraft aluminum basting cover makes it easy to melt cheeses on hamburgers. It is very well constructed and has been an essential item in my kitchen. Love this cover!

Andrew Z. on 11/04/2019

Works great for melting cheese. We make our grilled cheese on a flipped over hamburger bun and this cover is the perfect size to cover both buns on the griddle. I don’t think it would be quite big enough for two pieces of bread however.

Matt T. on 11/03/2019

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

This is a very very good product. We use it on our griddle to melt cheese, steam burgers, or even to heat up a product if needed.

Josh N. from Beast And Bottle on 09/01/2019

I originally ordered just the 10 1/4" basting cover. The employees loved that one so much they wanted me to purchase another one, but smaller to use with our kids meals to melt cheese with. Absolutely love this!

Sheila V. from Sheila's Bar & Grill on 09/01/2019

We use these to melt the cheese on sandwiches while on the grill. You squirt a little water around sandwich then cover with this and it works great.
