Introduction: Nice and Cheap Cooking Bell Lid or Melting Dome for the Plancha and the BBQ
A cooking bell lid is a nice add-on to your plancha or BBQ. It can be used as a melting dome for a nice cheese burger but is also very convenient to increase heat and keep moist around the food you are cooking.
This instructable shows how to make one from a stainless steel bowl and a piece for wood for the handle.
What you need:
- a stainless steel bowl (Ikea is a good source with various sizes. I took an 11")
- a stainless steel screw
- a piece of wood for the handle
- saw and sanding paper
- optional: a lathe
Step 1: Shape the Piece of Wood...
Based on your design, your tools set and skills...
My first handle was shaped with a saw from a piece of beech, I now have a lathe and like turning so I turned this last one from a block a olive wood.
Pre drill the handle will a smaller diameter than your screw.
Step 2: Drill the Bowl in the Center
Screw the bowl and the handle together
Et voila! Take your kitchen skills to the next level and enjoy new recipes on your plancha.
- marinate a pork filet mignon (in one piece) or chicken legs with olive oil ginger garlic curry and curcuma powder. Meduim to slow cook on the plancha under the dome.
- duck breast : cook 8 minutes with skin on the plancha with high heat, then 4 minutes under the dome at low heat.
