Why doesn't Milo have the small nubs on the inside of the lid like some other brands?
We think the nubs are a gimmick and our whole philosophy is streamlining the cooking process with as few distractions as possible. Nubs are useless and expensive and you don't need them (neither do we.)
Other brands sometimes claim their nubs are for basting. With our lid and every other lid without nubs, basting occurs naturally. Steam rises, collects on the interior of the lid, then drops back down into the pot, naturally and evenly. That's basting 101.
