Wouldn't "this lid" and "that pot" be more accurate?

I would think so, yes.

안 맞아요 wants a space, doesn't it?

Spacing between 안 and the verb, in the exception of 하다 / 되다, is advisable though not so important.

안 맞다, do not fit = 안맞다, misfit

But

안 하다, don't ≠ 안하다 = 아니하다 = 않다, not.

안 되다, doesn't work ≠ 안되다 = regretful, gaunt, poor
