    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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.
    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.
    Strong material. Used it a few times and it still looks new. Works as it should and the quality is great.
    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.
    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!
    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.
    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
    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.
    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!
    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.
    These work great for the price. We use them on burgers to help them cook faster on the grill. Lightweight and handy i would reorder!
    Amazing, fits perfectly in my 10 in pan. I love it and will order more for family as gifts and just because I love them!
    Works as it should. Sits flat on griddle and allows for awesome sunny side eggs. Durable aluminum. Cleaned easily. Knob screws together nice and snug. Need to buy multiple ones now.
    well worth the money i have had ours for over 6 months and still is together the screw hasnt come loose at all i recommend
    Have used this on our grill for melting cheese for the past few years. Knob is still attached, no rust. Overall it does the job and hasn’t fallen apart.
