Hello Brenda,

If the plastic is heat-resistant, IOW won’t melt, it’ll be fine. Any
pickle pot lid must be metal-free because some pickles can be
contaminated by condensate from the lid.

If your plastic lid does melt or sag, I’ll bet you can find a plate
to place on top of the pot.

What ever covers and works. The plastic may degrade with time, but
when that happens just go to Goodwill and buy another crock pot for 5
bucks. I mock folks who pay real money for “real” pickle pots.

Have fun and make lots of jewelry.

plastic is fine- glass better, if you happen to get/have a glass lid
with a metal rim, just cut the rim off as solution from the pot will

  • invariably- drip down into the ‘clean’ pickle and contaminate the
    batch.

You may find a heavy glass lid from a slow cooker or to fit what you
have at a thrift store for next to nothing. rer

The lid is just to keep the water from evaporating away. Plastic is
fine.

Plastic lid works fine; will get brittle after a few years.

Get a replacement pot and lid at thrift store when needed.

I use one for years with a plastic lid, never seen that as a
problem, why you want a glass lid? it breeks easily!

5 bucks for a lid? Ha! If my plastic cover degrades, I will cut a
new onefrom an agate slab that is too plain for my jewelry.
Remember, no matter how frugal you may be, there is somebody behind
you wagging their finger atyour frivolous spending.
