Cooking science/techniques - pot lids (REPOST as per Chowhound Team)

learner | Dec 29, 2004 11:08 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?

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