Never-Burn Lid
Never-Burn Lid

While cooking with a pot, it’s inevitable to repeatedly lift the lid to check whether the food is done. This repetitive lifting and placing the lid bottom up often result in one’s wrist coming in contact with lid’s hot edges, which may cause serious burns.
The “Never-Burn Lid” is designed to prevent such mishaps. With a built-in hinge at a quarter length of the lid, users can intuitively fold the lid, placing it at a 65 degree angle to the surface of the table, to reduce the risks of burning oneself when keep an eye on that delicious pot of food.
