I am in CA. I found a restaurant supply when I was driving down the freeway today...decided to stop.
You're right. While boiling, lids should not be used. When you are trying to get it to boil, and immediately after you end your boil...lids are fine. After the boil is a must. You don't want anything getting in there at this point.
