What is the Difference Between Flat and Domed Lids?

EnviroTakeout’s selection of dome and flat lids are ideal for use with PLA compostable cups and are made from CPLA (modified corn-based plastic). They are designed for use with cold beverages and are BPI certified compostable.




Dome lids have a dome or conical shape and are ideal for serving up a variety of beverages such as milkshakes, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and more. The shape of the lid gives staff more space to add extra toppings so customers receive a delicious treat. These lids also allow beverages to have more air and movement to prevent unfortunate leaks or spills. Enjoy beverages topped with whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles, chocolate sauces, granola, and more with these convenient lids.

Flat lids are designed to fit on the rim of the cup and have a completely flat design. Cups with flat lids are also stackable, making drinks easier to transport. Because there is no extra room for whipped cream, these lids are better suited for serving cold beverages like smoothies, iced coffee, soda or juice.

Both dome and flat style lids have straw holes so customers can sip beverages with ease.

EnviroTakeout’s selection of PLA clear cups and lids are the eco-friendly way to serve up refreshing drinks.
