Tattler Reusable Canning Lids {Review and Giveaway}

I said I would be back this week with a giveaway. Did you think I had forgotten? I didn't forget we just have been having another of those fun FILLED weeks. We have been in the garden, harvesting honey, putting up food, doing wedding flowers and enjoying company. But I am here to tell you about some pretty neat harvest time helpers just now.

   When we put up food I like to can a lot of it. I freeze some things and dry a few in my dehydrator but my favorite preservation method is canning. I just love to see the rows of beautiful produce in nice pretty canning jars lining my pantry shelves. I like that with my own canning I can reuse jars over and over and over again. But I have wished that I could have lids that were okay to use over and over as well. Well that wish is now granted!

  Tattler Canning Lids can be used over and over(Check out these testimonials). So now I can reuse all the parts of the container that I can food in. I much prefer that to throwing them away. What a luxury to not have to go shopping for canning lids or to run out just when I really need them. At the present I have the 12 regular lids and 12 wide lids that I was given to review but I hope to buy more soon as I would much prefer having all my lids be reusable lids.


I had wondered if these canning lids might be more complicated to use but they were not. I used them in the pressure canner with a couple of batches of green beans, in the water bath canner with dill pickles (my first time making pickles!) and I also used one with my inversion method for canning raspberry jam. They worked fine every time. You use them almost identically to the regular lids so it is not hard at all.

  Another very cool thing about Tattler canning lids is that they are BPA free which normal canning lids are not nor are tin cans from the store.

I am very thankful that Tattler let me try out their lids and am looking forward to buying even more of them. Are you doing canning too? One of you can also try a dozen regular lids and a dozen wide lids. To enter the drawing please leave your name and e-mail address so that I can reach you if you win and tell me how you would like to use these lids.
Please enter before August 26th as the giveaway will end at that time.

Disclaimer: I received lids free from Tattler for purposes of reviewing but all thoughts expressed are my own.

I'd never heard of reusable lids before... wow, that's a great idea. I've got a huge box full of cukes to make into pickles and a garden full of tomatoes almost ready for picking and making into salsa and sauces. I also found this great recipe for Strawberry Kiwi Jam I'd love to try. Reusable lids would really be a help!

Hmmmm...these are intriguing to say the least. I'd love to try them with my summer canning. I usually start out with MANY jars of spaghetti sauce. And then there's the jam and dilly beans and apple pie filling to can too. This would save me tons of money in lids (or flats as they're called here in PA). Thanks for the chance to win!

I had not heard of these but they sound like a great idea. I also do quite a bit of canning- vegetables, various pickles and jam too.
Really enjoy what you share here on your blog! Shauna

I just picked 18lbs. of nectarines and plan to make jam. Would love to try out these lids on a batch of jam.

I'm hoping to can some more peaches and pears this year, so I'd use them for that purpose. I love that these are reusable. It seems like such a waste with the other type of lids!

I forgot my "what I would do with them" : I'd like to can a bunch of salsa and some more jelly as well as applesauce.

Wow I would love to win these lids. We started canning three years ago. This year we put up salsa, jams and some jalapenos. We are due to do more of all three to prepare for winter.
Thanks for the review.

I am new to canning and would really like to try these lids.

question: when you used the lids for jam using the inversion method, did you tighten the lid all the way down? I know when you process them they should be looser and then tightened immediately after, but I'm not sure how to do it when I use the inversion method for my jam. Any help would be appreciated - thanks!

Abbi said...

Shaela,
I did tighten it all the way when doing it for the inversion method. I actually haven't done the inversion method with them lately.
