I received the Stainless Steel Splatter Screen and Lid through a promotion.
- Made from 201 Stainless Steel, fine mesh, and silicone covered handle
- Safe on gas and electric stoves
- Allows you to observe food while cooking
- 5 1/2" long handle
- 6 1/4" mesh area
- Grooves on stainless steel fits on 8", 10", and 12" pots or pans
The stainless steel on the lid and mesh screen is safe to use on gas and electric stoves. The grooves on the 12" surface allows the pan to fit securely on 8", 10", and 12" pots and pans.
The mesh allows you to see how the food is cooking. It allows steam to get through the lid, which allows you to steam or heat up certain foods, like vegetables. The mesh allows air to get through when food is boiling and steam to get out. For example, if boiling water, the mesh screen allows room temperature air in and allows steam to be release. It helps prevent the water from boiling over and making a mess on the stove top or getting into the flames if using a gas stove. The mesh screen can help protect you from food that splatters. If cooking bacon or some meats over the stove, the splatter mesh screen helps keep the grease from getting out and burning the person cooking or making a mess on the stove.
The side of the stainless steel lid is slightly sharper than I'd like it to. It's something to be careful of when washing the lid, although the lid is dishwasher safe.
The silicone covered handle is okay. The silicone cover helps prevent the stainless steel handle from burning the person touching it, which is nice. I still prefer using an oven mitt or pot holder just to be safe. The part that doesn't impress me is how the handle is attached to the stainless steel of the lid. During the first use, I noticed that the handle can bend the stainless steel lid where it's attached. It takes a small amount of effort or force to bend it and makes the product seem less durable.
