If you are going to use your jars to store dry stuff, I highly recommend these lids. However, for liquids, they do leak. I used them to carry some Oriental style dipping sauce to work, and it made a huge mess in my bag. Not a great experience at all.

After reading the reviews, I was hoping that the minority who said that the lid leaks were just those few. As soon as I received the lids, I put them to the test. I filled a 4oz jelly jar (from same manufacturer) with tap water, put the lid on tight and turned the jar sideways. Within seconds, water was dripping out. Some of the reviewers say to use common sense and not put a jar sideways. Well, that's not really the point, is it? A lid is supposed to keep contents in. It is not a matter of common sense, but a matter of not having a mess in your bag if you are like me and prefer to use reusable containers to transport your food/drinks or anything else that may have some liquid. So yes, I deducted one star for the leak factor, but I think I am being generous because, I would have liked the lid to be airtight, and airtight does not mean vacuum sealed as the top reviewer would have you believe. Airtight simply means that air should not come in or out, and your food, though not preserved, would stay fresher longer. Husband says all they had to do was add a little rubber gasket to the lids. How about one piece metal lids with the rubber gasket for even more durability and no leaks? I think all of us would purchase those in a heartbeat!

On the other hand, these lids will serve some purpose. I make my own baby food and these lids are simpler to handle than the 2-part canning lids if you are not canning. And once my baby outgrows baby food, I can use the lids for opened homemade jams that were previously canned in the same jars - they are easy to use and easy to open so even my older toddler can open on his own to spread his own jam (probably the reason they are not airtight). Now I just have to figure out a way to transport to daycare without liquids spilling all over.

If you want to STORE food in ball/mason jars, rather than CANNING food, you NEED these.

Here's why:

The two part metal lids & caps that come with the Ball jars are for *CANNING*. These are NOT DESIGNED to be AIR TIGHT! The act of *canning* (pressure cooker, etc) creates a vacuum which seals the metal lid to the jar - the screw part is optional and is to simply hold the metal lid IN PLACE in case the canning fails. They are designed like that so that if the canning process is somehow faulty, and bacteria forms inside the jar, the lid will let the gases escape without making the jar EXPLODE. If you fill a jar up with WATER and put one of these metal lid/screw combos on it, and put it on its side, in a short time you will see it is NOT air or even water tight without a vacuum.

Now, you DO need the metal lids for canning, of course, and also if you're using one of those vacuum sealers with the jar attachment like the FoodSaver (which I recommend).

BUT YOU ALSO NEED THESE PLASTIC LIDS for storing anything else you want in the very handy classic ball/mason jars. The plastic lids ARE water and air tight - so they're perfect for medium-term storage of cereal, cookies, noodles, rice, etc.

These lids are great and I'm buying more for all my storage needs. I've never had a problem with liquids leaking as reported by some reviewers and I use them for everything.

When I make pesto sauce I like to store the leftovers in 1/2 pint jars so the pesto never smell like plastic. The lids make a great shaker jar top for homemade salad dressings. I like to store leftover marinara/spaghetti sauce in a glass jar so it doesn't stain my plasticware. Using a plastic lid is a better solution than the metal lids because the acid in the tomatoes tends to eat away at the metal if it's not put through the high temperature canning process.

I also use these lids on jars to store nuts and seeds for my bread recipes. I live in a high humidity area and have found these lids on the jumbo 1/2 gallon jars Jarden 68100 6 Count Wide Mouth Canning Jars make them the better storage solution than traditional canisters for sugar, brown sugar, flours, grains, etc.

When you buy these, get both the wide-mouth and regular-mouth sizes. The regular size will fit the mini jars too.

These lids are just wonderful. They turn any mason jar into a perfect food storage container, they're easy to twist on and off, top rack dishwasher safe, and very durable. Unlike the metal lids, they obviously won't rust over time, and they are great for fermenting and storing pickles, as the sour and salty pickle brine tends to rust out metal lids very quickly.

To the reviewers who complained that these lids are not water-tight, yes, that is true, but there's an easy solution. You know how the regular metal mason jar lids are composed of two parts? There's an outer ring plus a flat metal disc with a rubber seal for use in canning applications. Well, the flat disc with the rubber seal fits PERFECTLY inside these plastic lids. If you need to make your jar water-tight, just put the metal disc with the rubber seal on top of your jar, then screw the plastic lid over it, instead of using the metal ring. Voila! Nothing will leak. Although it would be nice to have a single water-tight cap, I find the discs with the plastic caps are still way more convenient than using the rings that are difficult to clean and rust quickly.

I actually like that these plastic lids are not water and air-tight without the metal discs because it makes them more versatile. The fact that the plastic lids breathe works out well for pickling. I can keep the plastic cap on the jar while my pickles are fermenting, and it allows the carbon dioxide to leak out rather than build up and make my jar explode. Then, if I need to travel with the jars, I can just insert the metal disc, and the jars stay perfectly sealed.
