Anyone have a source for name brand canning lids? Man, their hard to find. If you do find them, they want a fortune for them.

Thanks. Has any of you tried the Tattler reusable ones? They say they work ok, just not sure about them though.

My family has canned thousands of quarts and pints over the years. Grandmothers, my mother, and Mrs Brownie. All would frown on reusing lids, or using a reusable lid. Ball ,Kerr, and Mason are the only ones I would use. Some sellers on EBay and Amazon are advertising that they have Ball and Kerr lids, but they are cheap knockoffs from China. Look at the reviews before you order.

There is a shortage of cannung supplies because many folks got into canning (and making bread) due to te Covid lockdowns..

Do not use re-usable lids... like BigBrownie - stay with brands Ball,Mason,Kerr

Thanks , I forgot about last year! Have to get on top of that. My brother likes the Tattler lids and he cans a bunch. I’m a little skeptical.
