    Default Are lids for cooking pots being sold by retailers?

    I've been looking for a lid for I believe an 8' pan and a 10' pan I
    bought a long time ago. The pans are in good shape for my use, but
    I've gone to my local grocery store, a Williams-sonoma (sp?) store and
    Wal-Mart trying to find a lid to buy for each. No luck. Are lids
    available for purchase independently of the pan these days?

    Thanks,

    John

    Find a restaurant supply store and buy the flat aluminum lids that cover
    several different sized pots.

    Who made them? Some pans were made to be sold without lids. I bought
    some pan lids for Farberware from the Farberware outlet store, which
    I'm not sure still exists.

    If you can't find lids, you might consider buying the very cheapest pan (or
    even pan set) *with* lids. Discard the pans and keep the lids. This isn't
    ideal, but it's better than having a pan without a lid.

    Find a restaurant supply store. The lids won't be pretty, but they'll
    get the job done.

    I know what you're talking about, but if he brings measurements he'll
    be able to find something that fits the pan.

    Tops Fitz-All is a line of hard-to-find replacement parts; I usually find
    them at Ace Hardware or online at Ace Hardware Outlet. Here's the list of
    Fitz-All parts available at the outlet today, among them is a 10" pan lid.
    http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/Sea...ufacturer=TOPS

    In addition to the Tops lid, you'll find two other brands, RSVP and Nordic
    Ware on Amazon; RSVP claims to fit 7-12" pans, while Nordic Ware claims 12".

    I have used several of the Fitz-All products, though not the pan lid, and
    found them to be of good quality. A set of handles saved my small crock
    pot when the originals disintegrated; the Fitz-All handles have outlasted
    the originals by a wide margin.

    A couple Asian food stores near me have glass lids
    in a range of sizes in their housewares sections.
    If there is an Asian food store near you, I'd suggest
    looking there.

    A few years ago I was given a universal pan lid as a gift. Strange gift
    since I had mentioned to the giver of the gift that when I replaced my pans
    I kept the lids. I rarely use the lids and the old lids were in good shape,
    but the pans were not. I have Revereware. They changed the shape of the
    pans but all of the lids would still fit something.

    Anyway... I just did a search for universal lids and they are still being
    sold.

    Check out thrift stores. There are bunches of pots and pans, often junk, but
    with serviceable lids. Sometimes you might even score something good. And
    you might ask for lids since sometimes they seem to get separated from their
    pots and pans. I envision a big pile of homeless pot lids in the back room
    of every thrift store.

    Thrift stores are a great idea. My husband went to our local Goodwill
    store looking for Halloween costume accessories, and came home with a
    Le Creuset tea kettle for 1.40! It's missing the stopper thingy on the
    spout, but works fine for our purpose on the wood stove.

    Try using a pie pan. Inverted works too.

    Not the best solution, but it'll work until you find something else.

    If you've got a friend with a band saw you can make a perfectly
    serviceable lid from a piece of aluminum and a cabinet knob from Home
    Depot. Just saw it the right size.

    LOL. No, I don't, but I do remember that my mother had had a skillet
    pan made for her. This would have been about 50+ years ago. That
    thing could take a beating, keep on ticking and also make a handy tool
    if you had really wanted to hit someone over the head with it :-)
    Don't remember whatever became of it.

    Thanks for everyone's responses. I don't buy cookware very often and
    wasn't aware of alternative places (to department stores or grocery
    stores) where one could buy cookware items. Also, I wan't aware of the
    term "universal lid".

    I think I'll probably try the suggestion of Ace ??? store because they
    have at least one location here in town; hopefully they don't require a
    membership, but if they do I might be able to work around that.

    Ace Hardware does not require a membership; it is a plain, old-fashioned
    hardware store. To compete with the big-box Depots and such, they carry a
    few things out of ordinary; but, every store doesn't carry every item. If
    the store doesn't have what you want, order online and select the free
    delivery to local store.

    I have a universal lid which fits over all my skillets. I have never
    lost a lid which came with any saucepans.
