Mauviel 2.5 Lids are Thin

mobiledynamics | Jun 27, 201902:00 PM     1

Riddle me this. The 250C lids on the Mauviel I've observed seems really cheap and thin. The same 2.5mm thick 14L hammered stock pot that is tin lined, the lid on it is nice and heavy. What am I missing.

Is the bi-metal considered ~cheaper~ than the tin lined ? I'm not a walking caliper, but I feel like it was about 3X thicker ! I did not even bother looking at the side profile. One can *bend* the lid with your hands, the latter not so much. When I picked up the lid, I immediately noticed the heft that I was expecting vs. the paper plate lid on the 250C lineup. The 2.5 stocker was not listed as a 250C unit but a 1830 model lineage.
