Lesson 1: Lids are important so make sure they are the right size for your pan. I couldn’t find a large enough lid and thought two small lids would do the trick. My veg got a nice soak from the condensation forming under the lids and were drowning in a watery grav(y). And because there was so much heat escaping from the gaping holes, the veg had to be cooked much longer — almost 25 min!

Lesson 2: Check carefully in the next shelf for missing lids. It’s probably there, like I later discovered.
