Cobb: Cover for steaks or no??

Howdy! My new Cobb was delivered to me today and I'm trying it out as I type. I have watched several videos on cooking and the dome lid was always used. My Cobb did not come with a recipe book at all sadly (I thought it would have a basic one at least ) but it did have some getting started tips and one of them was not to cook with the dome on for steaks. So all you Cobbers out there what say you??

Thanks!

Leave the lid on. If you don't have it order the Cobb Griddle for steaks, burgers, chops. The griddle cooks much better than what comes with it plus you can sear with it and clean up is easier. Enjoy!

The lid is part of the cooking system, makes the meat juicy.

Yes they were amazing! I just hate how grungy my nice new shiny grill got on the inside, lol. I like things to look new at least a little while, lol. Thinking of lining it with foil next time for easier (prettier, lol) cleanup.

Spray the inside of the dome with cooking spray.. Also both sides of the tray even though it's already nonstick

What about where the grease drips down the sides (inside) and into the moat? Wondered if I should put some liquid in for steaks to faciliate easier clean up.

I was going to suggest using the mythical leftover wine but we know that doesn't exist!
Tip number 2- after you are done cooking most things there should be enough heat left to bake a small dessert. Bread can be baked as well but usually just itself and nothing else.
