A Drop Lid (Otoshibuta) is a traditional lid designed to rest on top of food being simmered in a pot. This technique holds the ingredients in place so they don’t break apart, circulates the liquid so the ingredients cook evenly, and allows the food to be coated evenly, without the need for stirring. 

When choosing a size, please keep in mind the Drop Lid sits inside the pot, with a gap between the lid and the wall. 

This tool is cherished by chefs and home cooks alike when preparing Nimono (simmered foods).
