With the rings off, it's easier to tell when the seal on a lid fails and you can dispose of the contents asap.Jams, jellies and sauces mostly.
Thanks, good advice. I don't understand why you store without rings though, isn't it better puece of mind with it on? A little pressure to open doesn't seem like a good approach.
some people love the tattler re-useable lids and rings, some people don't. It takes a little practice to get them to seal, tightening, JUST enough, finger tight and backing off 1/4 inch. I get 90% to seal, sometimes 100%.The lids are really expensive around here compared to the jars and the rings. It runs about 50 cents or more per lid. While six bucks per dozen won't break me, I do wish there was a reusable method even though I can very little by comparison of others.
It's a deal! I hope you like them. I will remind you, to can things YOU use and use the tattlers. To can things for OTHERS, use metal. It keeps me from worrying if they'll return my lids!Awesome! I just bounced over to the website for Tattler and they are having a 15% off sale with free shipping. I bought 3 dozen to try. I like to reuse things....and am my frugal mother's child. Less than a dollar a lid!
