Are copper lids really useful with those copper pots?
I am getting ready to buy a copper saute pan from either Mauviel/Falk/Bourgeat -- and since lids can cost quite a bit, am seriously wondering if it is all that important to buy a copper lid for a copper pot for any other reason than looks or completing the set!
I would be perfectly ok using one of my SS lids on my cookware. In fact, I do that all the time, because SS lids can be tossed into the dishwasher saving me some washing effort. I love this idea; however just curious if there are any situations where it would be helpful to use a copper lid (any special recipe or use of the pot for specific purpose).
Thanks in advance!
