About a month and 1/2 ago, I purchased the reusable Tattler Lids. Tonight was the first night that I was able to use them. To be quite honest, I was a little hesitant to use them as they are a little different than what I have used and trusted. They are thicker so the rim doesn't twist down as much. I also found that I spent a lot of time making sure that the rings for the lids sat evenly on the rim of the jar. I was so nervous that I would have them slightly off and the jar wouldn't seal correctly.
Then I discovered that 1. once the lid was on the ring sat correctly and 2. on the wide mouth jars, if I put the ring on the lid then placed it on the jar, the process was much easier. My soup is currently in the pressure canner so I do not have an update on how they sealed but I promise to give an update tomorrow.
Some positives are that the process to can and prepare the lids is the same as the metal lids. Minimal learning curve. The Tattle lids are thick and sturdy, I can see how they will last. I am really looking forward to getting over my hesitation and having the trust in my standard metal lids to transition over to my new prized Tattlers.
