One lid to top them all

YouTube description: 

A smart alternative to food plastic wrap, these flexible and reusable 100% silicone lids can be used to store food airtight in the fridge with no leakage of smells, keeping food fresher for longer.

They're the perfect alternative to cling film, aluminum foil, and single-use plastics.

The lids can be stretched to fit containers with different diameters.

From Core77:

Cling film, a/k/a plastic wrap, is essentially non-recyclable.

But it's super useful stuff, and I've been seeking an alternative.

These odd-looking reusable silicone lids by Spanish kitchenware manufacturer Lékué may fit the bill.

They're shaped like flexible yo-yos and come in different diameters.

The lid size doesn't need to correspond precisely to the diameter of the vessel or fruit or vegetable to be covered: it just needs to be close.

You stretch the bottom half of the yo-yo over the top of the vessel, then stretch the top half over the bottom half.

This adds enough compression, the manufacturer says, to get an airtight seal.

Set of 3 includes:

• 1 lid ø 11 cm — for diameters from ø 11 cm up to ø 14 cm

• 1 lid ø 15 cm — for diameters from ø 15 cm up to ø 18 cm

• 1 lid ø 20 cm — for diameters from ø 20 cm up to ø 24 cm

€25.90.

I literally just bought a 12 piece set of stretchable silicone covers last night at a HomeGoods store: https://www.evriholder.com/product-page/silicone-stretch-food-covers

It was $7.99 for 12, much cheaper. We'll see how well they work
