Materials

Covers and lids fall into two broad categories: glass and metal. There are certain advantages and disadvantages to each material. Some covers even combine metal, glass and plastic. There are also many different types and kinds of knobs and handles used on covers as well: wood, thermoplastics (high temperature resistant plastics), metal, and even siliconeimpregnated metals. Glass covers have the advantage of enabling the user to see the food's cooking process without having to lift the cover from the pan, but are often heavier than an equivalent metal cover. Metal covers are unlikely to break, but they require the user to remove them to check foods progress. Metal covers can be made of aluminum, stainless steel, copper, carbon steel or cast iron-all of the materials that cookware is made from.
