Update International stainless steel cookware lids are designed to fit cookware by the same brand. This ensures that the lip of the cover fits perfectly inside the pot, offering just enough looseness to allow steam to escape. This limits condensation that returns moisture to the dish so that sauces and one-pot meals can thicken naturally. Flat designs are ideal for stewing, frying and boiling, where there is no need for self-basting. Update International stainless steel cookware lids have riveted strap type metal handles so that pots can be transferred into the oven. Rivets are one of the most durable methods of attachment, making such designs long lasting. Update International specializes in professional grade cookware for the food service industry and is one of the most reputable manufacturers on the market. Their experience in dealing with food distributors has given the brand the experience and knowledge required to provide for the unique needs of professional kitchens. Boiler and generic covers are available in a variety of sizes. When matching the brand's lids with cookware from an alternative manufacturer, the cover measurements should be chosen to suit the lip of the pot.
