All American Canning Jars

Let’s Talk About Lids

The key to the massive widespread use and popularity of Ball’s canning mason jars is the fact that the lid sizes are standardized, and can be interchanged between jars of any different manufacturer.

With two universal canning lid sizes (wide mouth & regular mouth), mason jars are unbelievably practical in that you can fit ANY ball wide mouth lid on ANY wide mouth canning jar, and ANY regular mouth lid on ANY regular mouth jar... well you get the idea.

Canning jar lids play a vital role in home canning. In addition to ensuring that the preserved food stays in the jar, they also keep that food sterile after the jar has been processed by keeping nasties from re-entering the jar. That’s just one of the reasons why we give them so much attention and we ensure a regular supply for them in our store

Ball canning lids are designed for one-time use. Using them more than once may result in your jars not sealing properly. ... So, if your mason jars fail to seal properly the first time, you have to put fresh lids on your jars before you reprocess them.

This doesn’t mean though that you cannot repurpose some of your older jar lids. We may even write a full blog post with just those uses, so stay close if you would like to learn more.

For many, ball canning jars are the ultimate eco-choice for food and beverage storage. By switching up the jar lids, you can enhance these useful solutions to make them even more convenient.
