These aren't really designed to be opened and closed a lot, as they're for preserving and storing food for longer periods of time.

They have a two part lid; a thin metal disc with a rubber bit that actually seals long term, and a metal screw band that holds the lid in place temporarily. You fill the jars up with your food and put the two part lid on, then after you've processed them (hot water bath for acidic foods and jams, pressure canned for other foods) you can remove the metal band and the thin disc part is held on by the vacuum created during the processing.

These lids are good for the long term storage of food because if any food spoils then gas is released which weakens the vacuum and the lid eventually comes lose. If the lid is still sealed when you come to eat it then it's all ok. I've got 6 litres of soup in some at home that I made ~18 months ago, and the lids are solid.

Also it's only the screw bands that are technically reusable, not the actual disc parts of the lid. But if you don't need a perfect long term air tight seal then they'll be fine to be reused for storage. Although, 500ml is smaller than you think!



Here's a photo showinng the two part lids (not my photo, just one that I found from Google)

Wouldn't it just be cheaper to buy actual jars of jam for near the same price, use the jam then use the empty jars?

Not that you can actually buy and pasta or rice anywhere at the moment lol
Good deal if found, (none in my 12 nearest stores, 28 mile radius!!)
These are great. My friend is buying a house and a big fan of pretty jars. Great moving in present
Nice find
1 set in High Wycombe, though in reality that may be 0 sets.

People used to do exactly that years ago, in fact Kilner used to sell lids for jam jars in case the original ones weren't suitable for re-use.

Can't preserve things you never had.
I have been toying with the idea of pressure Canning for years but the equipment is very expensive and hard to get in the UK if the jars were this price and available I think I'd invest in a pressure canner and fill my cupboards.

Correct. Not for storing rice and pasta. No way.

I got a Presto 23 quart canner from Target in the US, as the few places I could find them in the UK were a rip off. I think I paid about £100 all in, and buying from Target was great as they added taxes etc on when I bought it, so I just paid the one price and it arrived at my house.

Unfortunately pressure canning just isn't popular here, so it's more expensive and there's less info on UK websites.

£100 is an absolute bargain. The one I was looking at would have cost me around £250. I'm kinda obsessed with the idea of pressure canning meat. I never have enough space and I love slow cooked cuts of meat. I wouldn't ever consider myself a prepper, some of those chaps scare me but I do kind of lust after their well organised pantries.

@Shubzu these are for home preserving or 'canning' as the lid seals tight and holds goods for years. Not for general storage, you'd be better with the clip top ones with the orange rubber gaskets like these

I have 2 of These

And bought these 12 mason jars from wilko (when they were £2) and bought the two part “Ball” lids separately. I have about 200 mason jars and have been canning for about 4 years now. Never poisoned myself I have canned food jars 3+ years old I could open and eat cold with no worries of poisoning. I can soup, stews, curries, bolognaise, baked beans, etc. When I go camping I take a selection of my home cooking and reheat, it’s very convenient.

I have done a load of shopping today and will be canning about 30 kilos of soup/stew over the next few days.

keep a look out on warehouse deals for the Kuhn rikon hotel series pressure cookers (the widest ones) because they work for canning. I got one of mine for about £60. They are one of my best bits of kit in the kitchen. You need to pressure seal on the second red band (15 psi) on the valve pin for 60 mins, that ensures the botulism spores are dead.

Check home bargains they sometimes have 500ml mason jars with the 2 piece lids for 59p. They have 1 litre ones too.
By the way, I reuse the lids until they stop working. If the lid hasn’t done it’s job the vacuum will fail. To test if the food is safe you should be able to lift the jar by the disc lid.

`I thought I’d share some photos of what I’m doing tonight. I’m doing a vegan chilli for my wife and have made about 11kg so it will fill about 22 mason jars. She’s a nurse fir the NHS and she will take a jar to work and zap it in the microwave for a healthy meal on her dinner break.
