The Joy of the Silicon Pot Lid

We really enjoy having silicon pot lids on board. They take up less space than the traditional pot lid. And, they are so versatile. They can be used as trivets. And, our favorite....

This morning, for our Sunday special, Peggy made blueberry pancakes. Oh so yummy!

But, cooking a batch gives lots of time for them to cool. Enter the silicon pot lid.

Jus put the pancakes on a plate, and cover them with the silicon pot lid. Yes, they stay nice and hot until you are ready for the second helping! What an excellent breakfast! Thanks go out to Peggy and her silicon pot lid.

A Side Note: I ordered the least expensive ones I could find on Amazon. Now that I have tried them, I really want one that you can see through. The most dangerous part of using the lid is lifting it off the pan to see if the water is boiling. The lid more or less seals to the pot. When you lift the lid, the steam comes right at you if you do not plan ahead and open from the point furthest away from you. It will be nice to just be able to glance into the pot.
