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.
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.
Both still function correctly, both have identical seals where they meat the rim of the jar and are both water tight on my Wide-mouth Ball jars, unless filled with hot liquids which do break the seal, so I'll be keeping them. The question of durability remains to be seen. But more importantly the quality, there's no reason to make them cheaper, weaker, thinner, other than cutting the tiniest of costs, and that is reason enough to be concerning.
