Tattler Reusable Canning Lids Review and Giveaway!

Tattler Reusable Canning Lids

Canning is one of the easiest ways to preserve food. You put it in jars, boil it and voila! Your food is good for years! Ok, so maybe not quite that easy, but it is a great way to preserve your food reliably for long periods of time. One thing every canner knows is that the inner lid is only good for one use. You can not reuse it like you can with the outer ring. Over time the expense of replacing these inner lids really adds up. Not to mention the waste of throwing them out! Tattler is an awesome company that decided to make reusable canning lids to reduce waste, save money and  make life a little easier for canners like myself.

Rather than the single use metal lids, these reusable canning lids are made with BPA free plastic and come in 2 pieces. The plastic lid and rubber ring. You only have to replace the rubber seals when they become damaged over time. Not after each use! Much cheaper and must more cost effective! I thought maybe it would create extra work for me but it was very easy to just slip on the rubber ring and put the lid on as normal. Barely an extra step in the normal process! Another concern that I had was whether or not the plastic would hold up to the hot temperatures of the boiling water. The lid seemed to hold up just fine and wasn't any worse for wear.

I will slowly be adding to my collection of reusable lids. I appreciate that once I have them I no longer need to continue purchasing any at the store. These will easily pay for themselves after just one or two canning years, depending on how much you can year round. As with anything that you can use over and over, there is a small investment. However, after the initial cost it is all savings. My husband and I like to say that once something pays for itself, its free! This is such a great way to be a little more green, for earth and for your wallet!

BUY IT -  You can purchase your own reusable canning lids from Tattler, click here. Or visit one of their retailers, here. If you aren't sure you will like them you can try a sample pack or you can purchase in bulk to maximize savings!

I learned they are dishwasher safe! I have a few already and have always washed them by hand, but now I will start putting them in the dishwasher!

I learned that you use them a bit differently from traditional lids so that the seal is tight. The instructions seem really easy to follow, and I like how they point out the most important steps.

I found it interesting that you don't have to use the metal ring when storing the jars after they have been processed.

I learned that, after they've been properly sealed, they can be stored without the metal rings.

These sound wonderful....I love canning, and these would make that easier. Thanks for the opportunity to win! :)

I learned how to tell whether the lids have sealed correctly.

Lyn Mack said...

I learned that there is a different way to tell if they sealed or not. Also, the tighten only finger-tip tight is interesting. I never thought that I might screw lids on too tight. Didn't cross my mind. Luckily, I haven't really tightened many lids in my day (this was my first year canning anything).
