1 pc plastic lids for everyday jar use not canning
THESE ARE PLASTIC LIDS WITHOUT THE NEED FOR BANDS. THEY ARE NOT FOR CANNING. THEY ARE GREAT!!!!!!! for everyday use. Turn jars into glasses with lids (thats what I'm buying them for) with these easy off & on lids & no 2 piece band lid combo to drop drinking from these jars aint just for red necks no more. They are great to take as travel cups. Drill a hole, add a straw & great sippy cups too. Not to mention leak proof way to take soup etc for lunch. I think plastic lids could be cheaper. But when you combine with inexpensive mason jars you get leakproof glass storage & drinkware that is way cheaper than other junk out there.
GREAT FOR CANNERS TOO!!! You've done your canning & now its time to enjoy the fruits of your labor; grab that jar of homemade canned pickles off the shelf, then add this plastic lid when its time to put them in the fridge to eat them. Easier than band lid combo when you want to get into the jar daily.
THis 8 pack will last canners forever, no matter how much canning they store you only need plastic lids for what you're consuming at the time. When one jar of jam is eaten switch the plastic lid onto the next jar you open. Clean empty jar & get it ready for canning again with metal lid band combo.
My last tip (almost shouldn't give this tip away for free) Anyone out there with one of those Mr. Beer type home brewing system for rootbeer of regular beer, or even a Mr Wine home wine making kit (ok I might be a red neck) jars with plastic lids work great after your prepare & seal beer etc as directed & let process according to directions you can switch them to jars with twist on lids when your invite friends over to enjoy. If you did everything else right they'll last 2-3 days in fridge with just twist on lids. If your making bathtub Gin.... just kidding I'm sure these would be helpful to you too, but I have no experience with it. Any how great BUY!REDNECKONIZE
Many of the Bad Reviews Here Are Erroneous.
I can't but wonder what is wrong with the individuals who have given this product a bad review, because they believe "plastic" lids are shown. Ball doesn't even make plastic lids with bands.
Their plastic lids are all one piece. The package pictured above clearly shows banded lids, and it says on the package, "Bands with Lids".
Also the word "silver" appears several times on this page. There is only one error on this page regarding the lid material, and that is in the description where it incorrectly states the Material to be "plastic". Fuming with righteous indignation is hardly appropriate when you bear some of the responsibility for a mistaken order. In addition, to say in your review that the plastic lids are what is shown is false at best, and a lie at worst. Take some responsibility for what you commit write in posts like these.
(If by chance, the photographs on this page were once of the the plastic lids, and have since been replaced/corrected, then my comments should be completely disregarded, and commend Walmart for being vigilant.)patrickcelam
