And then when I pick the lid up to put it back on the pot. I have to wipe up the counter. Even if I set it upside down, I end up with drips or condensation.
The Onpot ($9.95) is a one-trick pony, but it's a pretty cool trick. Two suction cups attach to the lid of the pot - it's made from silicone, so the heat won't bother it.
For the suction cups to stick tightly, the lid needs to be smooth, but most lids aren't textured - most of mine are glass or smooth metal. I don't know if I'd trust it with a super-heavy lid, like from a cast iron Dutch oven, but it seems sturdy enough for most lids.
Since it's made from silicone, it's dishwasher safe, but since it rests outside the pot it shouldn't need much scrubbing, in any case.
