Breast Cancer Survivor Susan Castriota was determined to find a way for frequent microwave users like herself to feel safe about the cooking process. Scientists have linked very low doses of BPA exposure to cancers, early onset of puberty, and many other diseases. Synthetic estrogens may leach from heated plastic into our food. A recent study found that even BPA-free plastics contain synthetic chemicals called EA (estrogen activities) which can migrate into food. In addition, it’s been proven that plastics, even after normal washing, harbor food borne bacteria, whereas glass does not. These findings inspired Susan to create the Cuchina Safe Lid as a safe alternative to plastic lids.

One caveat. The large lid will not fit easily into my kitchen cabinet. I plan to create a space for large cookie sheets, anyway, so my two glass lids can find a home there.
Size of large lid: 11" diameter, plus 1" tabs extending on three sides
Size of small lid: 8" diameter, plus .5" tabs extending on three sides
These are very sturdy and thick glass, and I highly recommend them!
My dissatisfaction with this cover is the size, (it's misleading). There is a rather large inside rim inside the cover which prevents it from sitting correctly on the plate (it does need to sit correctly because the steam escapes from the bottom). The problem is that as soon as the microwave starts to turn, the glass cover slips off and sits on one side - therefore not steaming/warming evenly.
Also, another reason why it must sit ontop the plate is because it's not really tall enough to properly cover food if it were to sit directly on the floor of the microwave.
It's a nice concept to also use it as a baking dish, but unfortunately that is not what I needed. I would much prefer a real "large" glass microwave cover - even if it had only one function.
I do hope the manufacturer reads this and considers redesigning a larger version.
