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'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.
