Fits my Lodge 12 inch Skillet perfectly. Detailed review.
Reviewed in the United States on February 4, 2017
Well I had owned my Lodge Cast Iron Skillet for about 1.5 years now. It needed a lid for the 12 inch so I was delighted to discover this one on Amazon.
These are the reasons that I love my Lodge Cast Iron 12 inch Lid:
1 When I cover my 12 inch skillet, I cwn place my pan with cover into my oven...even at say 450 or higher degrees. I usually bake at 350 degrees using my cast iron in the oven, however.
2 Self Basting Lid...this lid has spikes inside it. The spikes and the lid itself baste the food on top of the stove or in the oven, this creates a tender and juicy meat every time!
3 The Lid has a tight fit and keeps the heat in the pan. When I sear meat, I place this lid on top of pan and it helps to tenderize the meat and makes the meat juicer, even more flavorful.
4 Biggest reason that I love this lid is that it does a better job with my food than my 12 inch vented Tempured Glass lid. The food tastes better, juicer and more tender than a glass lid in my opinion.
*** I prefer to use this lid over my glass lid because I can safely bake in the oven with it even at high temps.***
5 The lid is a bit heavy but I like this. Even when it is on my 12 inch skillet and I remove from the oven, I just hold the skillet front handle and other top handle.
Highly recommend this lid for the 12 inch skillet.
