3.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great, April 30, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
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.

Did you try putting the "disc" lid on and then the plastic cap?
Sort of defeats the purpose I guess.. any reason not to use them as they were intended.. with the disc and lid.. I do all the time.. mostly to store protein shakes in them and be able to shake them up before drinking..

I didn't have extra discs to try that, and ended up just using them to store dry stuff. Good idea, though - should give it a try

yeah I have to agree. I bought these also, and they do leak with any kind of liquids. Dy stuff they are fine.

Good idea about the lids, but it does kinds defeat the purpose lol.

I will have to try the lid idea since I have a ton of them.

I have had the exact same experience with the plastic lids. I had a considerable amount of a protein shake all over the inside of my work bag. I did not see any description of whether or not these lids are leak-proof on the box for them, and it seems this would be important information to provide. Why don't they provide a leak-proof gasket of some sort?

I tried a metal insert yesterday, and it worked. I am glad I found this post to see that other people have tried them and had the same success with them. However, I truly hate those rusty inserts, so I am still not overly happy that I still have to use them with the plastic lid just to avoid making a mess.

Agree with you on the metal inserts, they rust and turn nasty, but they are a better option than ruining a handbag with protein shake! ;-)

thanks for the feedback!

The metal inserts contain BPA. If you use them, you may as well just use a plastic container.

I wonder if the rubber canning gaskets would work with this? It would be worth a try. I think I'll look for some...

That might be a good idea!

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 1, 2012 6:32:38 AM PST
Rubber canning gaskets are designed to hang over the edge of the jar, so they would not fit without modification. You could try trimming them up, I guess. If you are going to do that, though, you might as well find a sheet of any material you feel comfortable with, and cut out circles to fit inside lids.

Before going through all that, though, I recommend http://www.recapmasonjars.com.

The secret to storing liquids with these lids, is to heat the plastic of the lid. It will change shape, and allow you to get it tighter than you normally would be able to when it cools, it will shrink and tighten.
