Saucepan lids I can hang
A long (long!) time ago I purchased Estia cookware and have a nice S-hook system to hang the pots and lids together. Now it's time to replace some of the pots, but I can't seem to find any with lids that fit inside the pot, with a rim that can stay on a hook. I had dreams for All-Clad, but this is a deal-breaker for me. Any ideas on a good quality brand that fits my storage system?
Yes a photo might help in answering your question.
Many old pan lids have "ear" type handles that make hanging them easy and efficient. Most modern lines have "loop" handles that can be a pain to hang.
One workaround for loop handles is to thread the *pan's* handle through the lid's loop before hanging the two together. Depending on the angle of the pan handle, this can be efficient and attactive--or not. Obviously, this won't work if your lids have knob-type "handles".
Thanks for the replies! The cookware I currently own have knobs on the lids, and I hang them from the rim of the cover, which nests inside the pot when in use, rather that resting on top. I will try the loop through the handle idea next time I'm shopping. Sorry, I can't do photos at this point.
