Once you discover these indefinitely reusable regular-sized plastic canning lids, you may never go back to the old single-use metal lids. BPA and lead-free. (We like them so much we sell them in packs of 24, unlike the teeny 12-packs sold elsewhere.)
  • Value pack of 24 lids
  • Indefinitely reusable
  • Use with pressure canners, water bath or vacuum sealers
  • Use with standard metal bands
  • Made of FDA and USDA approved materials
  • Dishwasher safe and BPA free (see below for more info)
  • USA made
These reusable lids are manufactured using a plastic which falls into recycling category #7. While some #7 plastics contain BPA and/or lead, we have reviewed several official documents from the manufacturer which strongly assure us that the plastic used in these lids DOES NOT contain BPA, lead or mercury or phthalates. Please read on for more information.

From the manufacturer:Lids are made of FDA and USDA approved, food grade product known as Polyoxymethylene Copolymer (POM) or Acetal Copolymer. They DO NOT contain any Bisphenol A (BPA).

This product is formulated using polyacetal base resin that is compliant for use in food contact applications according to (CFR), Title 21, 177.2470. Any additives that may be present comply with appropriate, specific FDA Regulations.

Types of food: All types of food except foods containing 15% or more alcohol.

Conditions of Use: Use temperature not to exceed 250 deg F per 177.2470.

Additionally, this plastic is approved by the USDA for direct contact use with meat and poultry products, as well as meeting the Sanitary Standards 3A Compliance for the Dairy and Food Industries Supply Association (DFISA).

Helpful Hints:

* Jars with nicks or chips in tops will not seal properly.

* Approx. 1 inch of headspace should be allowed for sufficient vacuum.

* Using a towel or something similar while tightening metal band, after processing, will help prevent accidental contact with hot contents.

* Leave metal band on processed goods until contents cool completely.

* Allow processed goods to cool at room temperature for 12-24 hours.

* If you leave metal bands on during storage, store in dry area to prevent rust.

* The rubber rings can be reused if no damage is visible. We suggest they be turned over each use. Previous placement will be evident by seal ring grooves left by lid.

"I wanted these lids to be wonderful. I really did! I pressure canned over 300 quarts of food with these, trying to get a success rate equal to traditional metal caps, to no avail. The directions that came with the product were different from those I got when I finally called the company. I tried hard to like them, but what's to like about jars not sealing, as well as jars on the shelf not being sealed weeks down the road?? I also was leary of the plastic... I do not recommend these lids to anyone!"

"Wow, why are these lids still allowed to be used near food? Look at what they're made of. Copolymer plastic which is loaded with formaldehyde. The manufacturer of the plastic has warnings about not using them with heat, not using them with salt, not using them with acids. County extension agents have been warning people about the plastic in this lid for a couple decades. People need to research!"
