My parents bought me for my birthday and CI skillet. It's a 12" very heavy nice one. I have a lg egg and I think it might be too big. When I set it on and try to close the lid the handle hits. Should I get a smaller one or keep that one? Didn't know if you closed the lid when using a skillet or not. Never used one yet.

    I believe I would trim the handle so it will fit in the egg. Sometimes you need to close the dome. :unsure:

    Sometimes that nice big skillet is very useful in the egg, blackening fish, pinapple upsidedown cake, lots of stuff. I would just trim the handle enough to make it fit. Easy Peasy with a sawsall and a metal cutting blade B)

    I have not found the need to close the lid on my ci skillet...these are typically very hot cooks that require eyes.
