Just another fellow canner


(Utah)

No failures to seal yet in 2 years of using them.

No staining, either. Not even concord grape juice seems to leave anything that won't wash off with warm soapy water. One hundred percent satisfied so far.

Tattler Canning Lids

by Kelly Morgan
(Blanco, tX)


I ordered one box of tattler canning lids to check them out and really like them.

To test the lid I only processed one..I wanted to check it out. It sealed perfectly. I want to order more but have to wait until September as I don't get a paycheck in the summer.

I despise throwing away the metal lids and they are not cheap. Thank you for making this product.

I look forward to sharing Tattler lids to my friends who can.



Sharon's note- I love tattlers but just to be clear..... I don't produce them. (boy how I wish I had thought of it first!)

Tightening of the Bands

by anonymous

I have bought these and like the idea of reusing the lids . . .but the first time I tried 4 they sealed no problem . . the next time I tried them 3 lids did not seal . . .then I tried them again . . I used 6 lids and 3 didn't seal every time I tried them.

I pressure canned them . . I am thinking I am not tightening the bands right . .

I tried on the second time to back it off a 1/4 inch as they said . . and that's when I had failure and then 3rd time I left them as I originally had hand tightened them and still failure so I think its me . . once I get this right I am planning to buy more.

How to tighten the bands for optimal results
by: Tattler

There are two key things to remember when using Tattler Canning Lids. The metal screw band must not be too tight prior to processing, and you must always tighten it after processing, while the jars are hot. We recently (August, 2011) altered our instructions, recommending you only tighten the screw band "finger tip tight" prior to processing. The jar must be allowed to vent properly while in the water bath or pressure canner. A domed up lid, after removing from canner, is evidence of the band being too tight.

After removal from canner, you must tighten the screw band completely. A gorilla grip is not required.

Following these two steps should provide excellent results.

oops, me bad

No you are right it is 1/4 inch not 1/4 turn, I just rechecked it. You can always email tattler and they will respond and give you some suggestions to try. The owner (or CEO forget what he is called) follows some of the blogs of people who he knows uses Tattler lids so he is able to answer questions quickly when they are posted.

inch or turn?
by: Anonymous

Doesn't it say to back them off 1/4 turn, not inch? I seem to remember a friend who did 1/4 inch and it had said turn. That may be the problem.
