Recycle your supermarket-bought bottles and jars!

These fit a range of commonly available bottle sizes.

Ordinary jars that you buy at the supermarket for products as diverse as olives to sauces to pickles, from brands such as IXL, HomeBrand and Raguletto can be recycled for preserving use..

Safe preserving requires new lids for a more reliable seal, and for a vacuum to be achieved when processing and you will often read that normal jars are not suitable for the purpose. This is because the seal on the bottom of the lid can deteriorate through acids in the food or just due to being stored for a period of time.

 

This problem is overcome by using new lids

NOTE: whilst new lids assist in giving a better seal, note that the jars are still not heavy duty preserving bottles made of tempered glass.  Therefore, we only recommend using twist top lids for jams, sauces, pickles and chutneys that only requiring processing times of 10 -15 minutes.  Longer processing times and more exposure to heat risk bottle breakages.

Many well-known products are sold in industry ‘standard’ size twist top jars.  These sizes typically are:

  • 38 mm lids to suit 32 mm openings

  • 48 mm lids to suit 40 mm openings

  • 53 mm lids to suit 46 mm openings

  • 58 mm lids to suit 50 mm openings

  • 63 mm lids to suit 57 mm openings

  • 70 mm lids to suit 64 mm openings
    or

  • 83 mm lids to suit 76 mm openings.

These new lids fit twist top jars from a range of food manufacturers


The best way to measure what size lid you will need is to measure your old lids. Turn the lid over, and measure from the inside edge across the widest point of the lid to the inside edge on the other side.

Please note that colour of the lids may not match the stock on hand. It's a good idea to check how many we have on hand if you require a certain colour.  Most lids are black or gold.

Lids are not stainless steel. Hand wash only. Do not put in dishwasher. Dry thoroughly immediately after use to avoid corrosion.
