Scroll down this page for canning lids and rings, both
disposable, reusable and rubber rings, along with photos, descriptions,
prices and ordering information. Everything can be shipped by a variety of methods, including
overnight, if you have a canning emergency!
UPDATE for 2021:
Shortages due to the supply chain crisis have made lids hard to find in stores locally this year, and many of them sold online are at
ridiculous extortionist prices. I have found some that I tested and say are BPA-free, at a good price here:

Tattler Reusable Canning Lids
Now there is a
safe, economical reusable, canning lid. BPA-free and reusable.
These are the Tattler brand re-usable canning lids that you may have
already heard about
I have personally tested these myself for the past 6 years. They are
every bit as effective and reliable as the disposable metal lids. And safer
- they cannot corrode and have no lacquers nor BPA.
I have no connection to the company; I'm selling them here because I
believe they are a good, safe, reusable lid!
Cleaning supplies to remove rust from rings and jars
A visitor wrote in to tell how she uses Copper Glo (order at ledt) to
remove rust from rings and jars; see below. There are similar products
like "Barkeepers freind". I haven't tried these yet myself, but
they get thousands of phenomenally positive reviews online.:
Comments from a visitor on September 15, 2010: "You mention not using
jars that have rust on them. One way to remove rust from jars is with Copper
Glo. I get Copper Glo at our local Giant Eagle. I had a jar with rust on it
and was getting ready to pitch it when my mom told me about Copper Glo. I
was afraid to use it at first because I was afraid it would scratch the jar,
but decided it was worth a try. Amazingly, the rust came off and the jar
Rubber seals for the older zinc caps - Know first that
home canning experts do not recommend that you use the rubber ring system.
The modern flat lid and metal ring system (above) is superior in reliability
and safety. If you insist in using the rubber ring system, do not use old
rubber rings: they have aged and will probably not seal effectively,
especially on an older jar. You can get new rubber canning rings quite

left for Kilner jars for those of you in Europe - or brought your Kilner
