You do not need to put a lid on your pot to cook with Joule. In fact, for regular cooking, we recommend you leave the lid off. However, if you are doing a long cook, water will evaporate over time, so for best results, we do advise covering the pot around Joule with foil or plastic wrap. Do not fully cover Joule during cooking. Doing so will cause Joule to overheat, and your cook will stop. You will also lose your Bluetooth or WiFi connection if you cover Joule completely with a metal lid.
