GIR Square and Rectangular Lids

You might be familiar with GIR (Get it Right) because of their spatulas. But they also make silicone lids. I wrote about their round lids (in a pretty large variety of sizes) before, but now they've created rectangular and square lids to cover the rest of your pans and casseroles.

The lids are sold individually in 9x6 and 9x13 rectangular sizes and a 9x9 square. You can also buy a set with the 9x6 and 9x9 lids.

These are a similar weight as the larger round lids. While they don't stick to or stretch around pans, they're heavy enough to stay in place if you set them on top of your pan. And if the pan's surface is smooth and you press down a bit, you create suction that keeps the lid attached to the pan.

Needless to say, if you've got rising bread dough in a pan, you won't get that suction. What you get is a lid that allows the extra gas to escape but it's still heavy enough to seal again, unlike plastic wrap that just flaps in the breeze if it comes loose.

I use the round lids all the time - to cover pots on the stove, to weigh down food that wants to float in water or a sauce and to cover bowls. The rectangular and square will be just as useful for square and rectangular things - and you could use them to cover round things that you want to vent - like when you're microwaving something and don't need it fully covered. Nice, eh?

They're dishwasher safe, so they're easy to clean, and GIR makes their products in a pretty wide range of colors, so you can match your kitchen, choose your favorite color, or just go random.

What would you do with these?

Who's it for: People who need lids for things that don't have their own lids.

Pros: Dishwasher safe. Heat resistant.

Cons: Now that they've added the rectangular sizes, I'm a happy camper.

Wishes: None, really. I think they chose useful sizes.
