J GLASS LID - 12"
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 But like cast iron, this technology has been replaced by cheaper and inferior products.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: 3.70 lbs
The unlacquered solid brass knob, made for us here in the US, is our own high-lift design and has the "archer" logo.

IN STOCK" items generally ship within seven days of your order. A "PRE-ORDER" puts you in a first-order-in/first-order-out queue. Generally, pre-orders ship within six weeks, but depending on the number of orders ahead of yours, and current scrap rates, this cannot be guaranteed.
If you need your cast iron quickly we might not be the best fit. 41 people perform sixty or more operations over 21 days to produce a pan; slow and necessary steps for our uniquely smooth finish. In today's retail environment where an online order can show up at your doorstep in 24 hours, we understand we are out of step, but we also make something that will last several generations. We hope you agree it is worth waiting for.
Your credit card will be charged at the time of your order.

Bubble Irregularities on the glass lid
I didn't feel like taking the time to take pictures and contact Butter Pat for an exchange but I was disappointed to see a few bubbles in different areas of the glass lid. I was under the impression that there was a high amount of quality control. But the functionality of the lid is still there.
Butter Pat Industries
Hi Frieda, Our lids are pressed by hand and bubbles are common. They aren't a defect. Each lid, after pressing, is tempered at extremely high temperatures, much higher than your oven. We like to think that the bubbles and bumps and folds let you know that humans made these things, not machines. Thanks for your note!
12” Restaurant Grade Glass Lid
I bought the restaurant grade 12” glass lid and I love it! It has a thick, durable feel and fits the Joan very well. It’s also a very classic looking piece, which is a plus for me. Being restaurant grade, it does have some small imperfection. These imperfection DO NOT affect the function and hardly affects the aesthetic. In addition the brass handle is just the cherry on top, adding to that classic, durable feel of this lid. It’s all very reminiscent of classic like griswold.
The best lid in my kitchen.
I have had this lid for awhile now and I love it!!! The weight of the lid is a plus. I use this lid on other cast Iron pans that I have. It does not fit the other pans perfectly, but does the job. I highly recommend this lid.
love the lid
Love the lid, everything I have ordered from butter pat is the highest quality. I will try to get everything they come out with
Fantastic Lid for a Stellar Skillet!!!
Butter Pat never ceases to amaze me with their quality! Joan was the very first skillet I purchased from Butter Pat and is one of my most frequently used pans of the line up. The “J” lid fits beautifully onto the Joan skillet and is masterfully crafted into a true work of art! Is it thicker and weightier than competitor lids? Yes, but that’s by design. It was designed with durability in mind capable of withstanding temperatures up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit! Try that with a competitors product and you better have a drip pan underneath! There are far too many lines of cookware that have too low of a temperature tolerance but the Butter Pat lids and skillets can handle the heat! Thank you Dennis for another great product!
