While some prefer steel covers, the tempered glass lids add an extra touch of elegance. They fit perfectly and seal in heat and moisture. You will find that even when leaving your lid ajar, your pots and pans still maintain a stable heat.
It’s clear that this is a set designed to last, with even the handles being triple welded for enhanced durability.
