12" Borosilicate Domed Glass Lid
Pressed, oven-safe, glass lids were once as common as cast iron. Our grandparents all had them. But like cast iron, this technology has been replaced by cheaper and inferior products. Some glass lids currently available will not withstand high oven temperatures. Borosilicate will.
Borosilicate glass is oven glass—thick, durable, and safe for use at baking temperatures, often sold as PYREX in the past.
The 12” Borosilicate Domed Glass Lid fits your 12" Joan Skillet.
Weight: 4.5 lbs

Worth the wait!
Was really looking forward to this lid, but was disappointed by the sheer size and weight of the thing. So impractical — I think it weighs more than the pan itself. Not to mention the gouache branding all over the top of it. Too bad because the pan is my favorite in the kitchen. Quality is good however.
Thanks for the frank comments, Richard. Pressing borosilicate glass allows us to make a lid that is oven safe to well over 700 degrees. It does require a thicker glass than tempered glass that is not safe at these temperatures. Also, the lettering under the lid is there for a purpose; it allows steam condensation to drip back into the pan off the letters, rather than collecting at the edges as happens with cheap flat, thin tempered lids.
My 12" borosilicate domed glass lid just arrived. What a magnificent piece of casting which fits over the Joan cast iron pan perfectly. Kudos to the whole team that made this glass lid possible. It will now greatly expand the versatility of my cast iron pan and become part of a family heirloom to be passed on to future generations.
