These sound good, actually. I will have to save up some money each month and get some by Spring. emoticon

never heard of them. i have used some plastic reusable freezer containers made by BALL. they are cheap and it is helpful when you have a little left over that won't fill up a glass jar.

Don't forget to be awesome.

I sure will. I think it is more a matter of adjusting to a new method.

They sound tricky Glenna and let us know if you get the hang of them and the trick to using them.

I have never heard of them so I checked out their web site you listed, I also checked out their facebook page. It appears they are complicated, tighten then loosen, and several people mentioned liquid leaking out during processing. I'm sure I would be concerned about that even though they said it was safe. To ya'll who are trying them keep us posted. (~.~)

I took the plunge and bought some this spring. They do really well. but, you have to follow the directions exactly!!! You have to center the flat with the red gasket on it. And you have to turn the ring back 1/4 inch after tightening, but before processing. I only had 3 not seal. The one I am not sure why. The other two was error on my part. I was in a hurry and didn't take the time to center the lid. I just placed it and screwed the band down like for regular lids. but I haven't used them over or given them the test of time yet. But so far, so good. I had them around for a good while before I braved up enough to try them. I think it was more that I am just set in my ways!! lol

I just checked Ebay and the prices are crazy bad on there. Much cheaper to buy from the Mfgr's website.

I haven't heard of them either, but also would be interested to see if anyone has tried them and how they feel about the way they work.

Hi I have never heard of them and they have been around since 1976???
Sounds promising and the prices aren't bad either if they will truly last a lifetime (as stated on their website)

TATTLER Reusable Canning Lids, Regular Mouth: $20.95 - 3 dozen

TATTLER Reusable Canning Lids, Wide Mouth: $23.95 - 3 dozen

Gosh, I hope someone replies that has used them. I'd really like to know how well and if they work....

Hello Everyone!

I'm newish to canning food at home and wanted to know if anyone here has used or heard of Tattlers re-usable lids and if so, what they thought of them? I'm putting the link on here http://www.reusablecanninglids.com/ not as an advertisement but to ask whether or not you think they are worth buying and using. Please let me know either way.

The path to a new beginning starts with the courage to take the first step. Wear good sturdy shoes, and don't forget the water.
