Viking 7-ply saucepans: Are the lids heavy enough?

kimbers324 | Jan 27, 201502:42 PM     8

I want to replace at least one of my saucepans with a Viking V7 (the discontinued 7-ply) and I'm wondering what the lids are like. (I'd have to order online.) My old All-Clad saucepan is quite solid and weighty but the lid may as well be a piece of aluminum foil - it is so thin and light. I think a heavier lid makes a difference when cooking rice and other stuff .... if anyone here has handled the Viking 7-ply, would be interested in your impression of the quality of the lid...thank you!
