I have one 12" lid and three 12" pans (all different brands), and the same lid fits all three. Seems like you should be able to find something unless that 10.25" is non-standard.

If you want this for frying have you considered a splatter screen?

I've never covered fried food with a lid. The steam would soften the crispy crust and ruin it. I just use a spatter screen.

Take the exact measurement of the pot and then go hunt the thrift stores. Take a measuring tape with you or some other method of measuring. You'll find one some day.

This sounds right to me.

If the temperature is just right with the lid off, then you don't have to adjust the heat. If you put a lid, it will slowly get hotter (less heat escaping) and you will have to fiddle with the heat setting and take the lid off to check the temp. I hope that made some kind of sense.

I have a splatter screen. Also I'm not worried about a glass lid keeping in moisture because my CI pan has those two pour spouts which don't get covered with the lid. That glass lid in my link posted earlier sure is neat tho, with it's own little adjustable steam vent built right into the glass lid!
