This review is from: Ball® Plastic 16-Ounce Freezer Jar, Set of 4 (by Jarden Home Brands) (Kitchen)
I originally ordered one set of these jars for Strawberry Freezer Jam. They worked great. I then purchased 7 more sets of jars. Four sets I used exclusively for freezer canning and the remaining four sets I use for storing food in the refrigerator. After less than a year, all except 2 lids have developed cracks. The crack starts at the tiny divot in the center of the lid then expands outward. I have contacted the manufacturer without result. I prefer these type of jars for freezer canning but because of poor quality will return to using glass jars.

I had the same problem with the lids that jinglish had. The crack extends about 2 inches across the lid after a few months of use. I suppose stacking another jar inside the lid would seal the bottom jar a little, but the top jar would have to have a lid that was not cracked. Good luck on that solution.

My lids also have the cracks.

I can't believe you're complaining about spending 14.00 a year on reusable plastic cracking. And mine aren't cracked. But they do sell extra lids, too. Same as you'd have to do with metal ones anyway. You cannot reuse metal ones FOREVER.
