LIDS FOR CORNING VISIONS COOKWARE

Stacks Image 956
Given that VISIONS has been manufactured approximately four decades, a rather expansive set of covers has been produced for the various pieces and model lines over time. To make matters even more confusing, the same model numbers were often used across different lids of the same size but with some variations being subtle yet important. For example, "V-2.5-C" will appear on at least 6 distinctly different glass lids yet some will only fit specific cooking vessels. When searching the list below, do not rely on model numbers alone, take note of distinctive features mentioned or displayed in the pictures. If it doesn't seem to fit, check the other Series of covers to see if the model number was re-used.

In the USA, most VISIONS cookware has been sold with covers made of PYREX glass, tinted Fireside (brown) or Cranberry. Glass covers made in Europe will be brown or clear and only marked with a size in centimeters (18cm, 20cm, etc…). "Cooking Lids" manufactured in France are flat and made of transparent, amber Pyroceram.

LE CLAIR PYROCERAM & GLASS COVERS

VO-Series Pyroceram covers

VISION brand transparent Pyroceram covers tinted amber, made in France. These were known as "Cooking Lids" in the USA and could be flipped over for use as a skillet, baking pan, or serving tray. While these lids were more common in European regions, they were only available in the United States 1981-1982. Some lids may be marked "VISION" while others will merely be marked "FRANCE" with no branding whatsoever.

These amber lids were modified yet again in 1999 to include fluted decoration around the knob, as seen on Oven/Microwave and Cranberry Visions lids.
