The Lily Pad Silicone Lid

My husband and I take a trip to Ashland, Oregon every year for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. I think this is our 21st year. We usually go into Jacksonville for an afternoon to walk around in the cute little shops and go to dinner at Gogi’s, which used to have the most amazing grilled romaine salad (and we squeezed the recipe out of them this year), but still has the most amazing and beautifully presented food. In fact, check out my flaming grand mariner creme brulee dessert. I ate everything on this plate, including the candied orange garnish.

There’s a great cooking store in Jacksonville called The Pot Rack where I always find something new and interesting. This year it was The Lily Pad Silicone Lid. This truly is an amazing product. I always end up with left-over containers that have no lids. This takes care of that problem. You simply place the lid over the bowl and it perfectly seals. If you pick it up by the handle, the entire bowl will lift into the air. Yet, you can just remove it. It’s like magic!

It seals tight on all smooth rims — stainless steel, glass, plastic and melamine. What a great way to have a more sustainable kitchen, no need for foil and plastic wrap or ziploc bags. I found a combo pack online for $45, but you can purchase them individually in a variety of sizes to just try one out.

Have you discovered a cool new kitchen gadget? Let me know and I’ll check it out and share.
