Yes, I have used tattler canning lids.

I requested and received a few samples and as soon as I used them up I ordered a bunch and then my Mom ordered more for me! I am now "set for life"! Will never need to buy lids again!

I wish I could send photos as I have been canning all summer! I am so tickled I found Tattlers re-useable lids.

Thank you, thank you, for adding the photos! A picture is worth a thousand words they say.

Tattler Canning Jar Lids

by Liz

I've been using these for three years for all my canning. Have had absolutely no problems and definitely recommend them.

Wish they weren't plastic but that's still better than throwing the other lids away (they can be re-used for dry storage, of course).

I would never use these lids.

They are made with many other dangerous chemicals. Formaldehyde being one of them!

BPA is not the only reason to avoid plastic.

Sharon's Note:

I'll quote from Tattlers Website for a good explanation.

What about Formaldehyde?

Many questions have been asked about the existence of formaldehyde in Acetal Copolymer. While it is true formaldehyde is present in trace amounts, research proves it is only released at very high temperatures, well above any temperatures found in home food canning. Here are the facts.

Heating our brand of acetal copolymer above 460 degrees F (238 C) should be avoided. At these temperatures, formaldehyde, a colorless and irritating gas that can be harmful in high concentrations, is generated.

When home canning, even in a pressure canner you will NOT reach 460 degrees.

Why not glass?
by: Anonymous

I just can not understand why they can't come up with a glass lid set. I know they want a universal fit so people do noy have to buy all new but maybe the people that care about these issues don't mind buying all new.

I already am buying new from europe so it would have to be cheaper from the U.S. anyway. Even the old metal lids without the lining was better. Since the recommendations for shelf life are only a year anyway why does it matter if they start to rust after years?

Sharon's ideas......

As far as why no one here in the US makes glass lids, I don't know. I think it is a great idea.

I can answer the question about rust on old metal lids however. The problem with the metal lids is not that they rust. It is that they can only be used once. I'm sure they do rust but if you are only using them once.... rust is not the issue.

Re-usability is the problem. They produce lots of waste in our landfills. Plus we as consumers have to keep buying them. Sometimes stores don't have them in stock and then what do you do?

The benefit with the tattler lids is they are re-useable over and over again. The gaskets only need to be replaced after approximately 10 uses. Less purchasing for us, less waste for the land fill.... seems like a winning situation to me.

Not an issue in a pressure canner, either.
by: MrEMeat

While water bath canning takes food contents to 212°F, a pressure canner increases the heat level but to only 240°F;

This is far from the 460°F temperature required to cause formaldehyde to be released from the copolymer in the Tattler lids.

Tattler canning lids
by: Anonymous

I would like to know if any one has pressure canned with these lids at the highest canning temp.and sent the product to a lab to see if Formaldehyde had been released in to the product.

I would love to buy a bunch of these lids but Formaldehyde is worse than bpa.

Great canning lids! :)

by Mrs. J

I bought a stockpile of Tattler canning lids last fall, and have used some of them over and over already, simply because I'm always canning surplus, etc.

They are terrific lids. If you call, they will send you a sample to try, too!

I had probably a 80-90% seal rate until recently. When they say 1/4", they mean 1/4th and not 1/2". LOL I think I'm golden now, after my last batch of sixteen jars and a seal rate of 100%!

The rubbers ARE thin. But some of them are barely dented at all after repeated use - instructions are to flip them and it's hard to know which way to turn a "like new" ring, you know? The plastic lid itself appears to be one tough, heavy-duty piece of plastic.

I like them! I've canned maybe 20-30 jars since I bought them (that's outside of canning season for me, LOL) and not a single seal has popped in storage yet.

Tattler Canning Lids
by: Sassy

Good to know. I bought those when they first came out and have been using the other lids I stocked up on. I have a ways to go before I start using my Tattler Lids.

Thank You
