Default Basting Bullets

Friends,

What is the purpose of "basting bullets"?

Thanks!

Jack

You'll need to explain further what you mean. That's not a common CI cooking term.

I may have sorted it out; they're found on some self basting lids; when steam condenses, they help focus the water to form and drip in in focused patterns rather than trust radom chance - or something like that.

Basting elements, drippers, basting rings are more common terms. BSR used dimples for the same purpose, touting them as more sanitary. Wagner patented zig-zag concentric rings; Vollrath used its name embossed on the underside of the lid. But yes, all to the same end: condensation on the lid dripping more evenly over the cooking food and not all running to the sides or seeping out the lid joint.

I'm assuming that's an old lodge DO lid (high dome)... I'd kind of like to see the top side of that one... is it marked 'lodge' and have a raised size on top?

With apologies, I don't know - I found these pics online when I googled "basting bullets", and there were no photographs of the top of the lids.
