The Charles Viancin lily pad lid is a beautiful and practical alternative to plastic wrap. Unlike plastic wrap this silicone lid can be reused over and over. The lid seals tight on all smooth rims, meaning any bowl can be used for food storage. The lily pad lid creates an airtight, watertight seal for reheating and storing. It can also be used while serving food, to keep your dishes hot or cold for longer. Each lid is oven, microwave, dishwasher, and heat safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. 4 piece set includes: 11", 9" lids and two 4" drink covers.
Top Customer Reviews
There is another size, approximately 5" in diameter, that is smaller than the medium size in this set and much larger than the extra small lids that came with this set. I was amazed at how small the two small lids are, approximately 2.5" to 3" in diameter, but after seeing them in the package and seeing the photo on Amazon, you can tell the size is extremely small if you have a frame of reference for the size of the largest lid and the medium size lid.
I'm not sure if there is really a savings for getting 4 in this set or purchasing them separately, replacing the extra small lids with the next sized up small lids. As it turns out, I really do like the two extra small lids as they fit the tops of beverage glasses and some very small dip/melted butter/cocktail sauce bowls I have.
I cannot begin to tell you the multiple uses for these lids. I was tired of heating soup in the microwave and having it splatter over everthing because the plastic wrap blew up or the paper towel slipped off. These definately do the trick to keep liquids from splattering in your microwave.
I was also amazed to find out that you can eliminate the need for foil or plastic wrap when storing left-overs in the freezer or refrigerator, and unlike plastic wrap, you can take your left-overs, whether stored in the pot/pan you cooked them in or stored in the bowl you served them in, directly from the refrigerator to the microwave, stove-top, or oven. The lids are practically flat and don't stick out around the top of most containers. So, they really don't take up more space in the refrigerator than using foil or plastic wrap, and they definately take up less space than a metal pot/pan lid.
There is suction when you put the lid on top of a plastic, glass, metal bowl or cooking vessel. It is much better than foil for sealing and so far, as good as plastic wrap. It's easier to use than either, looks better in your refrigerator, and doesn't have to be removed to re-heat on the stovetop or microwave. I haven't tried it in the oven yet, but the package says it is good up to 480 degrees.
I'm hoping the manufacturer will come out with rectangular sizes to fit most casserole dishes. The round lids are almost universal, in that the largest size will work with any smaller pot/pan or bowl too.
Really love this product!
In my original review for the Orka lids, I noted that if the bowls fit exactly in the grooves, the suction is even better. While this still holds true, I imagine that most bowls do not fit perfectly. For most bowls, I found the grooves to be less practical...if the lip of the bowl touches the groove, then the vacuum is broken and suction is no longer created. So while it is still a nice feature for my Corelle medium bowls where the grooves align with the bowl (Corelle Livingware Soup/Cereal Bowl, Winter Frost White, 18-Ounce), you may want to consider a lid with no grooves for most bowls (Rachel Ray, Charles Viancin, SiliconeZone, as well as many other brands that make silicone lids now).
I've now owned and used 4 different brands of silicone suction lids. My conclusion is that they all function the same with few minor differences. After all, it's pretty much just a circular piece of silicone, nothing too fancy about that.
My conclusion is that in the future, I will buy silicone lids based on size rather than other features. However, there are some minor differences in features, so the few differences may be a factor for your purchasing decision. I own silicone suction lids by...
1. Orka (Orka A94402 Silicone Lids, Set of 3, Translucent)
2. Charles Viancin (Charles VIANCIN The Lilypad Lid Medium-Small, Medium & Large Silicone Suction Lid & Food Cover (Set of 3))
3. Rachel Ray "Top This" (Rachael Ray Tools and Gadgets Small Top-This Suction Lid, 7-1/2-Inch, Purple)
4. SiliconeZone (Siliconezone SZ05KA-10095AA Easy Cookware Lid, Large, White)
...in varying sizes. I use them for covering bowls of food on the table, in the fridge, as a lid for a skillet when cooking, and occasionally as a trivet. As a cover, all are excellent and I have no complaints. But only Orka and SiliconeZone can be used as a trivet...Charles Viancin and Rachel Ray covers both have knobs that stick out, so they cannot be used as trivets.
The Rachel Ray lid is heat resistant to 450 F. In comparison, Charles Viancin is good up to 480 F, Orka up to 570 F, and SiliconeZone up to 675 F. All are freezer, microwave, and top rack dishwasher safe.
So far, I don't really have a favorite...I reach for whatever is the best size for the bowl I'm trying to cover. My preference in future silicone lid purchases will center mostly around lid size and color rather than on brand.
ORIGINAL REVIEW BELOW (10/26/12)
I found these pretty Charles Viancin Lily Pad silicone covers at a novelty store about 2 months ago and have been using them daily. Recently, I ordered silicone covers by Orka (Orka A94408 Silicone Lids, Set of 3, Green) from Mastrad's web site (Orka's parent company). Here's a comparison between the two brands.
So far I love both brands - these lids have nearly replaced my disposable plastic cling wraps. Here are a few notes on both.
THE LILY PAD:
1. Is beautifully designed in translucent green with pink knob grips.
2. The smallest (4"") are a perfect fit for mugs. Great for keeping a mug of coffee hot a little longer. Also great for covering up an unfinished glass of orange juice to stick in the fridge for later. Orka's smallest size is 6"", which is a little too big for mugs/glasses...although do-able, the 6"" is a bit unwieldy for mugs.
3. Is heat resistant to 480 F.
1. Holds suction slightly better than The Lily Pad in my experience.
2. Has concentric circle ""grooves"". If your bowl fits exactly in these grooves, the suction is even better. (The suction is good even if the bowl doesn't fit in the groove).
3. Is heat resistant to 570 F.
The silicone on both brands are about the same thickness/quality as far as my eyes/hands can discern. The Orka can be used as a trivet for larger bowls - The Lily Pad cannot because of the knob that sticks out in the middle. Both brands can be used to cover bowls as well as pots and pans while cooking on stove top. Watch out for flames...if you get them too close to the flame, they will burn and melt!
Both brands store easily in a drawer; and they are both dishwasher and microwave safe (there are no vents...if there were, they would lose suction!)
Both were very good purchases, among my favorite items in the kitchen. Highly recommended!
