Cooking Technique/Science question(?) about pot lids

learner | Dec 29, 2004 10:03 AM

I am learning to cook and this may be trivial...but...

1)What is the purpose of using a pot lid or not during cooking? Please give an example of things you would cook with the pot lid-less and lid-ded? W

2)Also, what is the purpose of the steam venting hole in the pot lid. Does it relate to your answer to (1) above?
