lid (liftable lid)

Items with this type of feature are usually described as having a "liftable lid".
More context or even an image would be very helpful

Another term that is also quite common is "Attached Lid", a google image search for this term returns many more results. but I think either term describes what you are looking for.

drop down door/swing door

This seems to be the kind of door you would find on an oven too, ie that opens by pulling out and down.

Not completely sure if you were after pta campana or capilla since you mention both...
