The Care and Keeping of Glass Pot and Pan Lids:What Can I Expect?
I am in the process of acquiring Calphalon Tri Ply cookware, replacing 18 year old Farberware. Glass lids are new to me. I need advice on cleaning, storing, and the general treatment of glass lids both while they are being used and in the cabinet. I have a two year old glass cooktop and an electric oven.
Does the care of these lids vary depending on the temperature of the pot or pan it is covering? And what about dropping these lids? According to Calphalon, they are tempered glass, and I've heard that they are resistant to breakage. Have you ever broken a lid? How did it happen and was the breakage dangerous? Will sudden/extreme temperature shifts crack the lids?
Thanks in advance for your replies!
