If I didn't get a lid with my frying pan, but want one, any recommended brands?

+1 as I've never had to buy a lid separate and have no idea where to even begin (other than something that is the same size as the frying pan)

I would go for a tefal one. I got one recently and I am very happy with it.

What's your use case for the lid? I've been happy with some of the silicone sealable ones from Le Creuset. Pretty good when you just need a seal for simmering, it's not see through but having one lid for multiple pans is a nice bonus.

Decide what kind of lid you want first. Tempered glass is great since you can see what's going on. If you want to be able to throw it in the oven then you're probably looking for a metal handle, as nylon will top out at 400F/200C. There's also the question if you want a vent hole in it. I just put the lid on crooked if I want to vent because sometimes I want it fully enclosed as a mini-oven. As for brands, I'd try to match the brand of your pan if possible, as they will generally mate and make a better seal. I like Cuisinart and Calphalon since they have metal handles, and make a nice seal at the rim with all my pans (of varying manufacturer).
