Put a (universal) lid on it

The universal silicone lid can cut down on your aluminum foil use and clear kitchen clutter.

Keep your food under wraps. Or lids. Home Marketplace

I have a lovely set of glass bowls that hold leftovers in my fridge. My daughters cover them with aluminum foil--a lot of aluminum foil.

I have many different sizes of pots and pans. Most have lids, but every so often, I manage to drop one at just the right angle on the ceramic floor, and it shatters.

Home Marketplace's universal silicone lid could solve both problems for me. The lid fits pans or bowls up to 12 inches in diameter. The stainless steel inset ensures the lid retains its shape.

The lid is heat resistant to 600 degrees, and it has a stay-cool handle and a self-ventilating rim. It's also dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. At $30, it's a little too pricey for my taste, but there may be similar, less expensive options.
