Here at 17 Bright Ideas, we are all about finding great things and letting you know about them.
This week’s Road Test is the Charles Viancin Lid
What is it?
The Charles Viancin Lid forms an air tight seal on any flat surface. It is made of high quality silicone and is perfect for summer entertaining. It can be transferred from oven to table to fridge and dishwasher.
The lids are available in a range of different sizes to fit most bowls, pans and pots. The sizes range in diameter from 15 cm to 33 cm. Drink cover lids are also available to fit glasses or cups. They are ideal for hosting as they keep drinks free from insects and can also be used to cover tins and cans of food.
Charles Viancin also has a range of drink products that are perfect for entertaining. Silicone drink markers are available in floral, grape or daisy designs. They form a suction grip to glasses and make it easier for guests to remember which glass is theirs, as well as being decorative.
Now lets move onto the Road Test! We also know that you are pretty busy so here is what Sue loved in 17 Bright Ideas style:
They are so bright and colourful – The lids look amazing on the table. The stylish floral design (I had hibiscus) but there are plenty of different styles and colours to choose from. They are a real talking point when they are on the table and I had a few friends eyeing mine off! OK the second photo I took should have been on a round bowl and the fist one should have been on a bigger glass but the lid worked just as well and I was too busy enjoying the party!! Just shows how versatile they really are.
They are really practical – This year has been crazy for flies near our place. Everytime we have a bbq or eat outside the flies come to visit. The lids stop the flies getting on the food, but also allow really easy access to the food. The silicone lid is easy to remove, or partly remove. They are perfect for keeping bugs away from food and drink.
Eco-friendly – These are such an eco friendly alternative to cling wrap. All that wastage is using cling wrap is saved as these lids can be transferred from fridge to table, reused and washed in the dishwasher.
They are really easy to clean and are very durable – They literally go from fridge to oven to table to dishwasher or a quick hand wash and they look as good as new. They are built to last ( yes the kids were playing with them too).
Has it been a Bright Idea?
Yes – we loved the lids and would definitely recommend them. We have got a lot of use out of them, especially being summer entertaining season.
Who are they a Bright Idea for?
These would be a bright idea for anyone who loves to entertain outdoors. They would also make a lovely gift for someone!
