I don’t want to come off as cynical all the time. Sometimes I don’t mind taking something at face value and giving it a shot. Today that thing is the UniLid.
It’s a silicone based lid that can supposedly fit many different sizes of containers. Instead of having to find that exact lid to go with that plastic bowl that you know was thrown away 6 months ago, you could just reach for a lid that stretches slightly to fit the bowl. It even has a built in day-of-the-week marker to remind you how old that Christmas lasagna is.
Now, I remain a bit skeptical only because they didn’t show much universality of the lid. I like my universal fit products to be shown fitting on several different sizes of things. It also looks like there’s multiple sizes of the UniLid, so each one probably has a small range of stretchability.
Anyway, the successful Kickstarter plans to ship in May and you can get your set for $15. I thought it was cool.
