Most of us buy our cookware, use the lids that come with it, and don’t think twice about it. But a few genius people on Amazon realized that there’s probably a better way to cook, reheat, and serve our food, not by swapping out the pot itself, but the lid. Could Guanci Set of Eight Reusable Silicone Pot Lids, a reusable solution made of food-grade silicone, be the best kitchen hack ever? Plenty of reviewers agree that they’ll never go back to the old heavy lids again, and here’s why.

Each set of eight comes with a variety of lid sizes, including 12-, 11-, 9-, and 8-inch sizes, as well as two 6-inch and two 4.3-inch sizes, too. With so many options, these silicone covers are extremely versatile, and shoppers report grabbing them for all kinds of uses—not just for a simmering pot on the stove. The heavy-duty grip makes for powerful suction that doesn’t dull over time.

Each lid is also safe to use in the oven, microwave, refrigerator, and on the stove, which only adds to their functionality. One five-star reviewer that called them, “the most versatile lid” they own, also wrote that “they fit on so many of my bowls and dishes” and use them for everything from microwaving to everyday storage. “I use these so much, I think I’m going to have to get another set,” they added.

Another five-star reviewer, who called the silicone lids “the best invention,” wrote that they use them “in the microwave to protect from splatters,” and “even on my coffee cup to keep the coffee warm in the mornings.” They even added, “I don’t even use the pot lids that came with my cookware set anymore.” They also love that they’re easy to clean and take up less space in their fridge.

Did we mention they’re also dishwasher safe? In a world where many metal or glass lids still require hand-washing, the fact that these can withstand temperatures from -40 degrees Fahrenheit to 446 degrees Fahrenheit while in the dishwasher (and beyond), makes for convenient cleaning without the threat of ruin. Just give it a quick wipe-down, then run the dishwasher.

With all these positives, it’s no wonder more than 1,000 shoppers have bought a pack in the last month. Another shopper said, “I didn’t know I needed them until I had them,” and called the lids “a huge money and time saver.” They continued its praise by saying it’s “super simple to use” and “keeps food fresh.”

“Never will I ever use a heavy lid again,” said one happy customer who also appreciates how lightweight these are. “As I age, I am finding the lighter the better when it comes to lifting anything,” they wrote. After a few uses, they found the lids to have “great suction, which makes them better lids than the originals.” They also love that “they take up less room” in their cabinet, and that “they are super easy to clean.” They added, “I donated every lid I own, and have replaced them with these.”

Now, we’re not saying you should donate every saucepan or stock pot lid that you own, but we are saying that if you did, the Guanci Set of Eight Reusable Silicone Pot Lids would be a clever swap. Each lid is made of food-grade silicone, and is oven-, microwave-, fridge-, stove-, and dishwasher-safe. Your purchase comes with a variety of pot cover sizes, and right now, you can grab the eight-pack at Amazon for just $20. Shop more food containers and covers for under $20.
