I was wondering if anyone had strong opinions about the usefulness of lids for skillets or frying pans. I'm finding myself wishing I could cook some covered things in my nicer fry pans, but I'm hesitant to dish out 50 bucks for a lid especially considering how shallow my fry pans are.
Would it just be better to save that money and put it towards a deeper saute pan (where pieces tend to come with their lids included)?
Alternatively, have people had positive experiences using third party lids? Or is it hard to get the right "fit".
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts,
