I like the convenience of those plastic bowl covers but it seems they are always packaged with assorted sizes - while I can occassionally use the small ones I use the large ones the most.

Heres my solution~~~I buy the shower/conditioning caps at the dollar store or stores like Dollar General for about 1.25 per box or bag. You usually get 10 for that price and they will stretch over a 13x9 pan without a problem and will often time fit over a platter of meats or veges for your next party. Whenever I find them I buy several packages at a time. Its an inexpensive way to have coverage and I find they actually work better than the name brand ones.

If you want to be real frugal they can be washed and reused-I dont do this very often-it seems I am always covering something like a platter of BBQ that will always find its way to the elastic part of cover :lol:

Give it a try and let me know what you think!!

Thanks for the tip. I'll have to get some, I'm always taking a dish for a funeral dinner, women's gathering or something!
