reCAP Mason Jar Lid Giveaway

Last fall, when I was in Austin, TX waiting for my sister to go into labor, someone sent me the link to a Kickstarter project that they thought I might be interested in. A woman named Karen Rzepecki had designed a mason jar lid with a spout so that she could easily pour things from canning jars without removing the lid.

I thought this was a brilliant idea and immediately signed up to help fund this idea into reality. I posted a link to the project on my Facebook page to help spread the word and soon enough, it was funded.


After months of waiting, my very own reCAP lids arrived last week. They are just as promised – a mason jar cap with a flip-top pour spout. They are leak proof, easy to pour from and made out of BPA-free plastic.

Because I donated $40 to the campaign, I received 10 reCAPs. Though I’m a huge fan of these lids, that’s more than I need to have kicking around my apartment and so I’m sharing. I’m giving away five of these reCAPs to five lucky folks.


And if you don’t want to take your chances on a giveaway, the reCAPs are now available for sale. They cost $6.99 a piece and shipping is free if you buy three or more. They’re currently only available in the regular mouth size, but I hear that they’re working on a wide mouth version, as well as lids with other utilities. I’ll let you all know if I hear anything more!

  1. To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post and share how you’d use a reCAP.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Friday, April 27, 2012. Winner will be chosen at random (using and will be posted to the blog on Saturday, April 28, 2012.
  3. Giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian readers.
  4. One entry/comment per person, please.
Disclosure: This is not a sponsored giveaway. I paid for my reCAPs and just want to share.

    I would use it to store my vanilla, maple syrup, etc. I love using my jars, and the idea of being able to store pourable items like this is exciting!

    I’d use it for drinking water. I love drinking from glass and drinking from a mason jar is even better!

    Um, I’d use this for everything! Cornmeal for pizzas, nuts and snacks, maybe even as a drink lid… Super cool!

    Samantha says:

    I’d use it for soup! And probably also for beverages. Finding ways to transport lunches without leakage is always a challenge, and mason jars make it so much easier.

    Meg says:

    Those are so cool! I think they would be great for fruit syrups.

    Cindi H. says:

    What a great idea! I think I would first use it to make salad dressing. Pour the ingredients in a jar & shake…then pour!

    Mara D says:

    Honey or syrup, but I can think of lots of other uses

    Oh my, oh my, these would be handy! Just started using mason jars for freezing lunches, and I can see this being fabulous for adding juices/drinks to my frozen choices.

    Devon H says:

    Ohhh I must have these!!! I would use this for a jar water bottle, small batches of iced tea or coffee, and when I make salad dressings!! Love this.

    Jeanie says:

    It’s a tossup between an everyday drinking cup and/or homemade salad dressing dispenser. (Maybe not if I pour the water on my salad…)

    Betz says:

    What a great idea! I keep spices that I buy in bulk in mason jars, and these caps are perfect! Please send me one so I can purchase about 20 more after checking it out! I love new innovations in home preservation!

    Christine says:

    I would use one for a top for my kombucha!

    Thanks so much for the chance to win! I’d use mine for the maple syrup we get from our trees and use daily in coffee.

    Amy Draper says:

    What a great idea! I drink water out of my handled mason jar and we have to keep it covered. Sheesh, flipping a spout would be a heckuva lot easier than my screwy screwtop! Bam!

    Valerie says:

    I’d use it for the whey I’m storing in a lidded mason jar to use in lieu of buttermilk for baking! And homemade salad dressing. And million other things! Such a cool idea!

    Becky says:

    I think a reCAP would be perfect for pouring salad dressing out of a mason jar! I always make salad dressing in jars because it’s so easy to shake up, but then the dressing is hard to pour out of the round mouth of the jar. The reCAP would totally solve that problem!

    Amy F says:

    I could not believe this landed in my inbox. Because of family allergies I am an avid canner. I now need to start making salad dressing and was looking for a container to store it in. This would be the perfect reusable solution!

    Laura says:

    Very cool idea. I think they’d be especially great for salad dressings, homemade syrups, etc.

    Elysse says:

    This would be great for drinks, especially since I just knit myself some jar cozies.

    Hello salad dressing! This little topper would be perfect for all the vinegrettes that seem to gather in my fridge.

    I would use it with homemade sauces I canned last year 🙂

    Lindsey says:

    I would use the reCAP in so many ways. I’m always making things, like syrups and drink mixes and such that I like to store in jars, but I can never pour them out without spilling. This would be amazing! Also, how could would I look using a jar as a water bottle?

    Amanda says:

    Wow, I can think of so many uses for these! My water cup (always a mason jar), honey, our homemade dressings and syrups, coulis, hot sauce, and dry goods (we store them in mason jars and they never want to shake out into measuring cups without spilling)! Thanks for the giveaway!

    Oooooh I remember when you first posted about this. Id LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a few. My hubby takes his coffee in a jar to work daily and this would make it much easier to drink from, so that would be the main use for it. But i mix my salad dressing and marinades in them also so I could use aout 5! lol 🙂 thanks for the giveaway, hope to win one.

    Lara Barnett says:

    I would use them for my kids. They think it’s neat to drink out of different glasses. I will definately use them to make dressing and dispense sauces. Yah!

    It would be great for salad dressings shaken together in a jar.

    I store my homemade coconut/almond milk and chocolate/almond milk in quart mason jars, and this would be a much easier way of serving it.

    Those look awesome! We make smoothies in regular-mouth jars by screwing them right to the blender blade, so these caps would be perfect!

    Lynn Brokaw says:

    Oh, I love this! Id use it for convenient pouring, as I store cornmeal, rice, spices and more in mason jars. Easy pouring for salad dressings, oh gosh, the ideas are endless. I would be so thrilled to have these!!

    o my goodness, this is such a good idea. I would use it for salad dressings and everything else in my fridge as I’m trying to use more glass and less plastic.

    Susanjam Anderson says:

    Since I store things in mason jars all the time, this would be an excellent addition to my stash of lids. Let’s see–rice, other grains (quinoa, millet), oat bran, chia seeds, flax seeds–the list goes on. Cheers!

    Soups and drinking. They’d be nice.

    Beth says:

    What an awesome idea. I pick and juice tons of lemons and freeze the juice in jars. Then I just take them out when we need a refreshing drink here in the desert or use it for parties and gifts by adding the recipe. It would be great to use these lids on those jars so I don’t keep making a mess when I pour.
