Finally getting around to using my tattler lids for the first time. I'll report on how they turn out. Would love to hear any experiences with someone who uses them...

Really stressing out. I have to wait till the pressure is off, then i'm suppose to take the jars out(and they are hot) and tighten the lids.. I have a UGG glove, but those jars are going to be hot and hard to handle...

Was a success and wasn't that difficult. Every jar sealed. Pretty excited about this. You have tattler lids and jars you'll never starve.

I've looked at those but I haven't been willing to take the chance

Dang it Craig, I was really curious as to how much longer she'd go on talking to herself.

I had one that didn't seal. It was my mistake because I got the rim on crooked. I got mine off amazon. They were very simple and having one not seal is not a disaster because I didn't ruin a lid like the metal ones. I get to reuse it...

Reusable canning lids. You can look them up on Amazon. The reviews are about half and half good and bad.

I watched some youtubes before i invested and they didn't look to difficult. And trust me, they weren't hard at all. I've talked with a lot of canners who use them in some FB canning groups too. I hated buying those one use lids. And if you are canning for survival, you need the reusable ones. I can up hundreds of jars of ready to eat meals for 'just in case'... We eat them over the course of a year, but I keep it stocked for 'just in case'. I had a hard time justifying that I was truly a prepper using the one time use metal ones.
I may buy more, 'just in case'.....lol
The lids do suck in so you can tell if they are sealed. THe one that didn't, the lid just lifted off. So there is no question whether its sealed or not. They seem expensive, but once you reuse it a couple times its paid for itself...Then, your canned good are then a cheap way to eat, well other than all the work...

Never seen those till you posted this. They do look expensive. I use re-use the one time lids fairly often if they aren't messed up and they seem to work fine on the second go round. I doubt they will last as long as these though.

I guess I'm not sure I see the point in having more than a couple dozen on hand. The lids cost about a buck a piece and you still have to buy new gaskets.

I have heard of people reusing those. Do you do anything to get the seal part back to useable or just warm them up and use them like new ones? How many have you reused?
