SILICONE LIDS LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE
An eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap and foil, these lids are made from heavy-duty silicone that can be used in the freezer, fridge, oven, and microwave (and of course, they're dishwasher safe). Their patent pending design is one part rocket scientist, two parts supermodel.

Each of these lids can fit on bowls of any size (smaller than its own diameter, of course).

12.5” (318mm) - Built for larger bowls and pots, as of launch this will be the largest-available circular silicone lid on the market. It's large and in charge, and looks gorgeous on the tabletop.

10” (254mm) - Great for covering food at outdoor picnics and barbecues, preventing stovetop splatters, or taking your Thanksgiving casserole from oven to buffet.

8” (203mm) - Sized for the most frequently used serving dishes and storage containers, the 203mm lid is the go-to size for everyday serving, picnics, and storage.

6” (152mm) - The cereal bowl size. Our favorite for microwave reheating, simmering saucepans, and storing single-portion leftovers.

4” (102mm) - Keep the steam in your mug and the bugs out of your wine glass. We also love these for keeping mise en place fresh while we prep our ingredients, and we think you will too.

We’ve spent a lot of time working with silicone. Some of our products are groundbreaking… the Ultimate Spatula that helped us launch our brand was the first unibody silicone spatula of its kind, combining a fiberglass matrix core with a heat resistant silicone body that made it nearly indestructible. Some are long overdue… like Scraper 001, a bench and bowl scraper all in one. And some - ahem, the GIR Lids - are just plain GORGEOUS.

We absolutely love silicone lids. They’re eco-friendly, and useful in more ways than we can count (though we give it a shot below). But none of them looked beautiful enough that we wanted to show them off in our kitchens. We took that as a little challenge, and this summer got to work on the following question: how do we hot-rod a lid? We’re pretty proud of the results.

These silicone lids rest on any flat bowl rim, forming a partial vacuum that “seals” the lid to the bowl when you tug on its handle. Thanks to atmospheric pressure, this seal is quite strong - so strong, in fact, that you can often get the whole combo to lift right off the countertop!

Each GIR lid will create a moisture proof, airtight seal on almost any container. And a moisture proof, airtight seal is just the thing for food storage, whether on the countertop or in the fridge. These lids will last a lifetime in your kitchen; they’re an economical and eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap, foil, paper towels, and the like. Our pharmaceutical grade, FDA approved silicone is free of PVC, BPA, and other plasticizers that are commonly used to give plastic wraps their “stickiness” - when you use a GIR lid, you get strong surface adherence without any of the bad actors.

The wonderful thing about using silicone is that you can take the lids from an application like countertop/fridge storage or picnic protection, and go straight to something a little more active… like reheating leftovers or steaming fresh veggies in the microwave, or baking a casserole in the oven. They’re also safe on the stovetop, so you can use them as multi-pot steamer lids or splatter guards while you’re sautéing over a hot flame.

Risks and challenges

With a great lineup of silicone products already in production, we're happy to say that we have awesome relationships with our manufacturing team to help bring these lids to life.

This is our first production run for each size lid, so we're up to the usual challenges of meeting order minimums, rapidly adjusting molds if changes are needed to our pre-production samples, and coordinating packaging and packing logistics... and we're more ready than ever to take it on.

We've also got a warehouse team ready to get each and every package out by the holidays, whether it's being shipped from New York to Brooklyn or Singapore. They are Kickstarter shipping superstars, having worked with us to fulfill our Mini, Skinny, and Pro spatulas as well as the Flips, Spoons, and Scrapers that were additionally-funded products from that campaign.
