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.

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 are sturdy (long-lasting) and water-tight lids that fit on Ball wide mouth canning jars. They are perfect to use once a canned jar has been opened and will be stored in the refrigerator for a few days or weeks. Also, they make the Ball canning jars more useful as short-term storage containers for soups, etc. because they are so much easier to use than the canning lids and rings. These are a must-have if you use Ball wide mouth canning jars in your kitchen.

These are easy to clean. I prefer them to the metallic lids that rust SO easily. You cannot use plastic lids to store canned food (they cannot create the proper air seal), but they work well if you want to store food in glass jars in the fridge or on shelves with dry goods. I prefer storing food in glass over plastic tupperware. In glass, food stores longer, tastes fresher, and is better for you (especially if your tupperware is not BPA free). Plastics have chemicals than can leak into your foods, particularly when food is microwaved in plastic containers. I'm not sure if these lids are BPA free, but I'm not too concerned as I never fill the jars high enough that the lid is touching any food.

I ordered this same item from Amazon.com both March 2015 and September 2010 and there is a noticeable decrease in quality in the newer version. The plastic is thinner. The number inside the older version is "10" while the number inside the newer version is "2". Of course they are very similar but the newer one is thinner all over. The threads inside the lid appear thinner. And you can feel the newer version give more while bending each diametrically. My postal scale shows a consistent reading of 14-16 grams over three of the older model lids and 10-12 over all eight of the newer.

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.

Excellent! It is SO nice not to have to fool with the metal two-piece lids and these will not rust. They do need to be tightened well though as they will leak VERY slightly if stored on the side. Maybe just use your brain and keep them upright in the fridge?
