Attention meal-prep fans: If you’re making due without a smart set of silicone lids, you’re working harder than you have to. We know that cooking ahead means plenty of microwave activity later — and with that comes some degree of microwave mess. Unless, of course, you have the right microwave-safe covers. If don’t have ’em, no worries — we do.

The Elegant Live heat-resistant covers, which come in a set of five, have gobs fans on Amazon. Each size is a different color, so it’s easy to grab the one you need at any given time. And they’re inexpensive, too — just $15 for the set ($3 apiece). Of course, Amazon Prime members get free shipping. If you haven’t enrolled yet, you can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

The set includes five different BPA-free silicone lids: 4-inch, 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch, so you’re covered (literally!) for any bowl, plate, pan or pot.

These durable dishwasher-safe lids can also easily handle extreme cold (up to -40), so use them in the freezer or fridge, and save on foil or plastic wrap. Each lid sits well on a variety of containers, eliminating the stress of searching for matched tops and bottoms of Tupperware. You can even use them in the regular oven — they’re safe in temps up to 500 degrees.

With more than 3,400 five-star reviews, these lids have plenty of enthusiasm behind them.

“I love these covers!” one happy customer writes. “I can cover all my glass/ceramic containers, pop them in the micro or oven, with no messy plastic or foil to remove. They go in the dishwasher, and come out clean, without any residue or smells.”

“Thank goodness for these lids!” shared another shopper. “They fit over all of my old Tupperware and keep my food fresh in the fridge. Round, square, rectangle, as long as the lid fits over the entire Tupperware, it seals it perfectly. I even use these lids to cover my regular bowls and seal them when I want to save food for the next day, instead of transferring it to Tupperware. Saves me time, money, and extra dishes to wash.”

Another adds: “I love these lids! They do the job with little or no fuss. After use, I pop them in the dishwasher, and they come out just fine, even with heated drying. Making oatmeal, reheating my cup of tea, Soups, leftovers, frozen dishes. I use the two smallest ones the most. These lids work on everything. Even when they don’t suction down, they prevent splatters and my microwave stays clean! I particularly like the little tab for releasing steam. No more steam burns!”
