After several months of saving up, I did something last week I've wanted to do for a long time: I ordered my reusable canning lids.
Ever since trying Tattler reusable cannings lids last July and putting them through their paces, I knew this was a product worth buying. They're sturdy, have a lifetime guarantee, and the rubber rings can be used about twenty times before needing replacement. (The lids are also BPA-free, for those who consider that an important criterion.) According to their website, I could order bulk lids for a price break. So that's what I did: I ordered 500 each of wide-mouth and regular-mouth lids (which come with rings). A thousand lids in all. I also ordered ten boxes each of replacement rubber rings, which are cheap ($2.50/box of 10).
I doubt I will ever have to buy another box of canning lids at the grocery store, ever again. Whoo-hoo!
The box of lids weighed almost forty pounds. On top is a smaller box containing bags of rubber rings.
Here's the bag of 500 regular-sized lids. (The bag of wide-mouthed lids is underneath.)
Here's the "loot." I'm so tickled to have these! Better than Christmas!
