Cooking can quickly become stressful, especially when you’re short on space. However, there is a relatively simple trick to quickly put the lid on the pan and save space. To do this, simply remove the pan lid and clamp it between the pan handle and the upper outer edge of the pan so that the pan lid now floats.
However, it is important that you try out how well this trick works with your pan lid before you start cooking. Also, it is advisable to only use this trick if the outer edge of the cover is not glass, as the glass edge could possibly suffer damage from the generated voltage.
