Tattler Lids

Postby Shadowgirlau » Mon Feb 27, 2012 10:16 am

Hi Friends,
Was just wondering if anyone over here has actually used the Taller reusable Ball Mason Lids? Not sure how many of you use the Mason Jars ? but thought I would ask.

The Tattler lids are a similar principle to the FV jars in that they use a rubber ring. I have read a lot about them including a good review from a person who uses them but would like to know about their use from someone over here in Australia where our conditions are different (sounds trite but is non the less a fact).

Thanks
Kathleen

Hi Kathleen,

I'm in the Darling Downs, Queensland.

I've been using the tattler lids (both regular and wide mouth sizes) for about 4 months. Once I figured out to not tighten the band down overly tightly before processing, I've had no problems with them. I tighten them regularly, then loosen about 1/4 turn, which has greatly decreased my non-sealing failures. I"ve used them in both water-bath and pressure canning.

They wash and re-use beautifully, and best of all! they're BPA free!

Hope that helps! :)

Thank you Clodia,
Yes that does help. I have read much the same with comments from people on another group I belong to who have been changing over to them in the past couple of years. Sounds like getting acquainted with how much to tighten is a biggie.
I have ordered a box of them and hopefully will receive them this week although I have to say I have not heard from Ian since I confirmed payment. I hope he is not anywhere near this flooding.

Thanks again
Kathleen
