I have seen "white rubber" like that before. Never used any. But all the jams and jellies in the grocery store have white "sealing gaskets" under those lids....

Did you try TATTLER for the reusable? They do still have stock available. I like them.
Also, a decent company is "FILLMORE" that sells bulk lids.... but they are out. Lehman's of course....

NOTHING coming from china that is going to be in contact with food..... remember melamine plastic ?????

No, I have not tried tattler I guess because it is not something I have not tried in past and not sure of my canning skills to try.

Now might be a good time to try them... given that a dozen tattler lids cost about the same as a dozen Ball lids... if you could even find the latter. I have a dozen tattlers to try,

yes, but it may not be the same material. :(
True! Just saying, only place I've seen white. LOL


ETA: I washed & sanitized about 30 jars yesterday and when handling them realized the Atlas, Kerr & Longlife Mason were not names I'm seeing of late. Looked on line and now I'm looking real close at them. These are old jars, excellent condition and I may be canning in $5-25 jars! :lol: I know these were from an oldsters shed, cleaned by heirs. At any rate, I think I gave them $10 bucks for the box. :idunno Not into collecting but, if any are worth the price of the entire box...a real plus! A couple may be. Who knew. The Atlas are now full of tomatoes and that would be a value to any eater!!! 😁 Normally I buy Ball, some are Golden Harvest.

What's your opinion on Gold Harvest? I'll not buy WM jars, cause I've had some break. But, I am just fine using WM lids multiple times.

I have had no problems with Gold Harvest but I am a beginner with canning meats, stews...
