BPA-Free Canning Lids

We have some yummy strawberry jam stored in the freezer to be used all winter until next June when we can pick those juicy berries again.  That’s the only canning I do but I know people that do it year round.  Just like any food storage products,  you want to make sure you are using BPA-free canning lids.  Last fall, when we found out that canning lids had BPA in them, we could only find one alternative.  Since then, a few more have popped up.  Here’s those that make the list:

Tattler Reusable Canning Lids – You can use these with any standard mason jar and metal screw band.  They carry both regular and wide mouth.  If they wear out, Tattler will replace them for free.  They are plastic, infinitely reusable and dishwasher safe.  Made in the U.S.A.

Weck – Weck is a German company that makes beautiful all glass canning jars and lids.

Ball Plastic Freezer Jars – These are great for freezer jam or sauces.  They are plastic and come in 8 ounce, 16 ounce and 32 ounces. Top-rack dishwasher safe.

Lehman’s Reusable Canning Jar Lids – These plastic lids can be used with any standard metal band in pressure canners, water bath or vacuum sealers. The company states that these leads “do not contain BPA, lead, mercury or phthalates”.

Have you found any other companies that make BPA-free canning lids?  Let us know in the comments!



  1. Thank you, thank you for the links for the reusable lids. I’ve ordered some and can’t wait to try ’em.

  2. Hi Marcy, let us know if you like them!

  3. HI, I was just looking through Lehman’s – it looks like they sell metal lids in bulk (and I mean BULK) that don’t have that white bpa coating on the underside. I am really curious who makes them as Lehmans says they aren’t from ball? Maybe worth a peek. I am a canning loner here where I live, but if folks have friends or neighbors, they could go in together on the lids.

  4. I used the Tattler res useable lids in both the regular and wide mouth versions this summer. I had NO problem with any of them! I am such a believer in them now!! Happy Canning!

  5. I used some Golden Harvest lids today, for the first time and noticed there in no white lining on them. Could it be, they have no BPA?

  6. Ball, Kerr and Golden Harvest lids are now BPA free, please update your article http://eatdrinkbetter.com/2013/06/12/is-there-bpa-in-your-canning-jar/
