Submitted by Huvs  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:  

You are correct that this is a potentially problematic arrangement. However, there are two possible solutions. First, the prohibition of Hatmana I sonly relevant when the entire pot is covered, if you could only place the towel over most of the lid leaving a portion of it exposed, it would be permitted. Alternatively, Hatmana is only an issue when the insulation is in direct contact with the pot. If you could use something to prop up the towel so it is not laying flat on the lid and there is a gap of air between them, this too would be acceptable.
