Most recipes call for the pot or pan the food is being prepared in to be covered at some point. While some pans on our site are sold with lids, no all of them do and you need to purchase the appropriate lid for the pot. Use the “Essential Extras” section of the product details to determine which lid is right for your pot and you can purchase them together on the spot. Perhaps you are on look out for a cover to replace a lid that has become too damaged to function any longer. There are two ways you can look for the correct lid on our site. You can try match the diameter to the diameter of your pot, but be careful, sometimes the diameter is that of the entire lid and not the diameter that will fit the pot. Make sure that the lid description includes what quart capacity of pot it will fit. The other way to look for a corresponding lid is to find a pot that matches the capacity of your pot and then click on the matching lid in the “Essential Extras.” This should take you right to the lids you need.
