    Great cheese cover top burgers flat handle melt dome perfect

    Great dome lids for steaming and melting cheese on a flat top, however, be advised, these domes are NOT meant to stand up to the heat from a char griller!

    from MC Union Restaurants, Inc Stack Southern Bistro Posted on

    This dome is fantastic. It's the perfect size for eggs and sandwiches. Just cover and the cheese melts perfectly and quickly while heating everything evenly!

    Does a good job for the money! Cheap, thin aluminum bends at times so you don't get a tight seal on the grill. Get a few replacement knobs because they melt. Large enough to bang out cheesesteaks, but don't keep it on high heat for too long.

    Great coverage!

    Brushed aluminum cover with a small plastic knob. You assemble it with a few twists of a cross tip screw driver. These are mostly used on a griddle to create a mini cooking environment underneath it. Under it you can increase steam, moisture, and concentrate heat. Thing underneath it cook faster in an almost cloud like environment. Thinner patties cook on both sides, buns come out wetter. They also block splatter from foods that spit on the grill. Wash up easy in the dishwasher. Our hard water leaves a thin whitish film on it due to the textured surface. They're six inches across on the inside and a little over two inches tall inside. The sides inside sort of rise up straight then curve over towards the knob so you have at least two inches of vertical space inside everywhere, higher towards the center.

    Great job of speeding up the cooking process on the flat top. Clean easily by hand or in the dish machine. Never seem to have too many of these!

    We use theses all day every day and they work well for the money. I would suggest removing the knob and placing some super glue in the hole and tightening real quick. The knobs always come loose.

    I was after a simple cooking dome and this product delivers. It has no frills and a no frills price, but the product does the job well. We use it to finish burgers and crab cakes and my guys in the kitchen use it daily with no complaints. The top little plastic handle of sorts is held on with a simple crew, and this did come out at one point, but that may have been user error. I just grabbed a spare crew and drilled it in and we were back in action. The product holds up well to dish cleaning. I would buy again.

    These are a great basting cover. I bought 4 of them and have zero complaints. I would recommend these to anyone who needs a set, great value for the price!

    from Arcane LLC Posted on

    The basting cover arrived as expected. There was minimal assembly, but it was a very simple assembly. I will be purchasing more of them in the future.

    from The Amsterdam Posted on

    We use this in our deli to cover burgers or steak to melt the cheese fast. Nice and light weight to use and easy to clean.

    from The Sandwich Stop LLC Posted on

    This works great for steaming food, and melting cheese. Just have to be careful with the handle, they don't hold up the best. The screw comes loose pretty easy.

    from Watershed Cafe Posted on

    Love this just wish it was a bit bigger! This is perfect for quick heating eggs and bacon on a griddle top. Great for quick orders!

    These work pretty good. Over time the know will melt, but that is to be expected. we are using them to steam burgers on the flat top.

    We have a larger size round dome basing cover that we are very satisfied with. It's great on the flat grill however needed something smaller to place in the sauce pans. This does the trick.

    Okay product. The handles tend to fall off and the construction is pretty cheap. It is however a cheap product so I guess you get what you pay for

    from Cafe Blue Moose Posted on

    This does exactly what it says. It's not quite as heavy as others that we have used in the past but it has served us well. We will buy more when we need more

    from Mikes Cafe Posted on

    Good quality dome, only complaint is that the handle is cheap and broke after the first time i used it. i would buy this product again

    A very economically priced basting cover. Delivered exactly as promised. I paid only a fraction of the price my local food provider would have charged by purchasing on Webstaurant Store!

    from Opa! Restaurant Group Posted on

    A good size cover to melt the cheese of one burger or a salmon fillet. It is light weight and durable with no dents from a clumsy fry cook. The aluminum surface is also easy to clean.

    I use this cover daily for burgers or Phillys to melt cheese or to heat something faster. I am purchasing another in case I have a few things at once.
