Does anyone like Tattler canning lids?

Recommended Posts

Guest Sister Jane

I’m considering buying some but since they are expensive I wanted to first check and see if anyone has experience using them, and if so what do you like or not like about them?

I'm not any help, but look forward to hearing responses as I have been considering them also!  Good question Sister Jane!

Yes, I love Tattler's.  However, I have collected a good supply of them to "set back" for life changing events and use the 2-piece systems for regular jarring up.  Went to buy some more pint and half pint jars etc., last week and they are scarce as hens teeth (we buy Mennonite).  All you can find are the Ball etc., at WalMart and other places that carry only the major brands.   But I've used Tattler's on other projects and some are 3 years old and still holding their seals just find.  Just follow the directions to a T and you'll be fine with Tattler's.  AND...if one is spewing...leave it alone!!! It will calm down and seal or not seal, but just let it do it's thing.  Sometimes people don't "back the ring off" enough and there's no expansion room...or they forget to tighten them down when lifted from the canner.

WE2....do Tattler lids "ping"?  They look more solid/less flexible in the pics.

No they do not ping.  After a reasonable amount of time, just lay the blade of a butter knife across the top...it should lay flat...that's my method.
