As I see it, the locking pressure cooking lid works well if your cooking experience is limited or if you're in a hurry, you hit a button, close the lid and assume it's doing the right thing. When you want to cook more conventionally though, as if you were cooking on a stovetop but with very precise and consistent heat control- sauteing and browning ingredients or sweating vegetables prior to adding liquids or meat and proceeding with the pressure cooking part of a recipe, or if you want to slow cook something without the intense heat and pressure blast of the pressure cooking functionality, this lid opens up a lot of that functionality. I use this to make marinara and bolognese among a lot of other things. To be able to very consistently keep the sauces at a barely perceptible simmer all day long as needed, allows the tomatoes and/ or meat to slowly break down to develop a good consistency but keeps the tomatoes from getting bitter, as happens if you cook too quickly or on too high a heat, and you can remove the lid to stir and check consistency and flavor easily, something you can't do with a pressure cooker. The stainless liner in the Instant Pot is a big part of that as well. I've spent my life cooking on gas as a professional Chef, I really appreciate the consistent heat that I can get using this device when I cook at home and again, this lid opens up a whole new world of functionality beyond merely cooking under pressure. The "simmer" and "saute" buttons, with the 3 intensity levels for each are very, very usable controls. Simmer on the lowest setting will bubble a sauce or "bone broth" almost imperceptibly with the lid on, and saute on the highest setting will rapidly and vigorously boil a sauce (or wine, etc) to quickly reduce, and you have 4 levels between those two to use as well. Lid on, lid off, lid ajar adds even more flexibility. You can do all of that with a conventional pot on a stove, but not with this kind of predictability and temperature control.
SLOW COOKING (NO): My IP doesn't slow cook well at all. Actually, the slow cooking is so slow that it probably takes about half again as much time as when I had a slow cooker (which I got rid of because of the IP). But this is not a problem because I no longer slow cook. I've done it twice since I bought the IP, which was nine months ago, because slow cooking is for people to thaw things out and plan ahead. Not this gal.
COVERING IP WHILE WAITING (NO): I use the regular pressure lid for this because it keeps the heat in excellently. If you want to keep your food hot while waiting, use the regular lid. It is more insulated and sealed and therefore better for keeping the heat in your food. I never use the tempered glass lid to cover the food while waiting to eat.
COVERING LINER FOR SERVING (YES): I can see this for use if you are taking out your liner and you are serving out of the liner or just setting it aside and want to cover it. But I've never used it this way.
COVERING WHILE SAUTEEING (YES): I can see this for use if you need to sautee in your IP for a while or keeping something covered while keeping the heat on in the Instant Pot (I ALMOST used it this way, I turned the sautee back on, after I had thawed the spaghetti sauce I premade, and thought of covering it as I cooked off some of the water, but this was a bad use because I didn't want the water to go back into the pot, I wanted it to cook off).
Thankfully noone was in the kitchen. I was in the living room when I heard a glass breaking sound in the kitchen. I went to see and it was this lid that just exploded throwing really small pieces of glass everywhere.
Nothing fell on it. There was nothing over it. It was at room temperature. The explosion was out of nowhere.
The issue now is that the entire kitchen is full of pieces of glass.
I have had this lid for over a year now and have been using it to cook on my Instant pot.
VERY well made!
As others have said, it also allows you to use the inner pot to store the food in the refrigerator once it's cooked, because, again, this clear lid fits on the inner pot. While you can't use the lid while pressure cooking, you can use it to cover and store the inner pot with the food you've pressure-cooked once finished.
I agree that it would be awesome if it were included with the Instant Pot, but it is a well-worth-it add-on! If I were going to give the Instant Pot as a gift (and I suspect that some of my family members may have Instant Pots in their future ;~) ) I would absolutely include this lid with the gift.

I think it's well made, and looks really smart too. It washes well too, I don't have a dishwasher so it gets plonked in the bowl with the rest of the washing up. I don't get those horrid left over drips you often get with a wire rimmed lid. Sometimes I rinse with cold water if not drying up immediately.
So there we go, it functions well and looks good. What's not to like?
This fits really nicely as expected and looks good. It's nice to be able to keep an eye on slow cooked or non-pressure steaming foods through the glass lid, while they cook.
I gave away my old slow cooker after buying the instantpot, but regretted that until I got this lid - now happy again.
