Pizza Tray Works As All-Clad Lid

Thought I’d pass along a money-saving tip. A couple of months ago I scored an All-Clad MC 2 6-Qt. sauté pan at T.J. Maxx for $70. It retails pretty much everywhere for $265. Score! It has since become my go-to pan. Unfortunately, it came without a lid and most web sites want around $50 for a lid to fit the pan’s 13.5” opening. Not in the budget. So I recently took the pan to a restaurant supply store to hunt for alternatives and found the pizza trays. A 14” model, for a whopping $7, fit perfectly. You have to use a pot holder or tongs to remove it when hot, but that’s a small price to pay. Heck, maybe if I get to feeling crafty I’ll see if I can drill a hole in it and screw on a handle. I imagine the tray might fit other All-Clad pans with the same size opening.
