REUSABLE CANNING JAR LIDS DESCRIPTION
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.

Limitations:
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 had initially given this product a poor rating, because I'm dumb. I've been canning for years using conventional disposable lids, with a 100% success rate. I saw the ads for these reusable lids, read the instructions, watched the videos. I THOUGHT I had done everything as precisely identical to the instructions as I could. Long story short; I got a 50% rate of failure to seal. But I'm an idiot and didn't read the bold caps on the box that say you should tighten the rings firmly as soon as the jars come out of the canner. After PROPERLY following the simple instructions I'm getting 100% success! I will be ordering more. Thanks for a great product, and sorry for being a dolt."

"I've used these lids two years now, mostly on pickles. Great lids! You do have to back off the ring before processing as one commenter noted, but just as important, you need to tighten the ring when they come out of the water bath in order for them to seal properly. As for the plastic, it should not be heated above 460° per Tattler's website, far above home canning temperatures. Otherwise the plastic appears to be food safe. The rings are latex-free too. It's good to at least have an alternative to the BPA lids."

"I love these lids. We have used them to water bath, pressure can and for grape juice. They have worked great for us. I love what a great money saver they are. I was always running to the store for more canning lids, I stocked up on these and don't ever have to run to the store in the middle of a project (well at least for the lids)!"

"This lids are great. First year using them and love them. It is absolutely essential though that you do back off the ring on the pre-process seal. If too tight, the jars do not vent properly. I learned that on the very first batch and lost only one jar seal. Since then, clear sailing. Will definitely buy more."

"I absolutely LOVE these! They're a little more difficult to use than regular lids but they're much healthier so it's totally worth it. I've been canning with them for three seasons now and I have yet to have any problems. I always make sure to get the jar rim clean and ensure that when you're screwing the ring one, the lid and rubber don't slip. The biggest problem I have with these is that sometimes people just throw them away or keep them for themselves!"

"I canned tomatoes last weekend and used the reusable lids and I absolutely love them. I had read many positive reviews and decided I needed to try them.....I will use nothing else!! Thank you providing such great customer service, I told my family members about you and I will definitely order from you again!!! Also it is almost impossible to find bands for canning jars and was so glad I could order them from you...thanks again!"

"I bought these last summer because I'd been having problems with lost seals on my tomato juice for the past couple of years. (I suspect the metal lid makers stopped using BPH to protect lids from acids.) Anyway, these have worked great! I didn't have a single lost seal. I am now on the website to buy some more for this year."
