Universal lid

My lids seem to be disappearing at an alarming rate.

Ming Wo no longer has loose lids.

I want a lid that will fit a 7 to 12 inch pan. Any ideas where?

  1. For pots and pans ? T&T has 'em in assorted sizes sometimes. But your best bet is the Chinese kitchen/appliance shops. I've seen glass (not sure about metal) lids of different diameters at these stores. One is called Forum Home Appliances, it's a local chain:

    I know there are others like them, but they are the only one I know the English name to.

    1. Restaurant supply places will carry individual lids - eg. Dunlevy on 7th and Manitoba. Dunlevy's lids are pretty basic aluminum (oven safe), very reasonably priced.

          Also check out old-school hardware stores (eg Magnet Hardware/Home Hardware on Commercial Dr)

            And the Home Hardware on Fraser btwn 45 and 46 Ave has lots of kitchen accessories.

      1. Also, London Drugs may stock a universal lid.
