What is the diameter of OneLid
23 cm diameter. We have chosen this as this covers most of the usual pots families use while cooking.
(upto a 4 L pot) So if you need something bigger and make soup for 20 people sorry we cant help you this time around. If we get the first version funded – we might look into making OneLidXL
What material is OneLid made of?
The lid plate is made of silicone with a nylon core.
That is why the lid is soft and will be quiet during handling.
The handle is made of high grade ABS
(the glass version will have a 3 mm heat resistant glass embedded in silicone)
Can OneLid go into my dish washer machine?
Yes sure. All lids are 100 % dish washer safe
Can OneLid go into the microwave?
No – not recommended
Will the vent function not slow down the boiling process?
No, your boiling will be exactly the same as before. Steam will also come out of a conventional lid. The overpressure created in a normal lid will also find its way – just in a very un controlled manner.
The fact that the lid does not transfer heat as glass and steel will reduce power consumption.
Where are the products made?
The lids are currently made in south China – but managed thru a highly sophisticated Hong Kong production company making products for famous brands like Chef’n, OXO, Starbucks and many many more. All materials are food approved of course.
Can we use the lid on a gas stove?
Not really recommendable.
Flames sometimes run up the side of the pot and might be to much for the silicone.
So use only on normal stove, ceramic and induction.
We will test the issue further later.
Is the lid materials safe?
The answer is a clear YES – 100 %
ABS is considered the best high grade plastics in the markets
Free som PVC, Phalates or BPA
The nylon core will not be exposed and has a distortion point at 160 degrees
(lid will never be above 100 degrees)
Silicone is made from sands/rock and hydrogen and stable upto 250-300 degrees
Used for decades for baking forms, lids, spatulas, and many other kitchen appliances
We will of course ensure we have all testing properly done to comply with all migration levels and guidelines set our by FDA and the European REACH directive
