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 use my mason jars for salad dressing, and these tops will prevent a lot of kitchen disasters with the dressing!

    We juice a great deal and I see these being a great benefit rather the current open pitchers that are in my frig right now. Also for sauces and marinades we make as we stopped using the majority of processed foods.

    I make my own SOS (soup or sauce mix) and keep it on the stove this negate the need for spoons. 😉

    There are so many options…. grains, nuts, sugars, salad dressings…. might need a case of these !!

    This would be perfect for pouring maple syrup on french toast or chocolate syrup on homemade ice cream!

    Carol says:

    Oh, these are great!
    I’d use mine for drinks, storing and pouring cream, sugar, syrup, all kinds of things. Yea for BPA free!

    I was also in the kick starter and got my caps recently. They are fantastic! They seal water tight, are easy to clean and pour without dribbles.

    I have used them for salad dressing, gravy, and milk. works great for all of it!

    I use Mason jars for tons of things; with these added lids the possibilities are endless. But funny enough what first came to mind was what a perfect container for iced coffee in the car when I leave in the morning!

    April C says:

    I think this would be perfect for those who make their own vanilla. Much better for measuring a teaspoon at a time.

    M.K. says:

    I’d use it for salad dressings and fruit syrups.

    These are great! Salad dressings, sugar, oatmeal, nuts…so many uses! Thanks for sharing!!!

    elisa m says:

    For simple syrups in drinks. Pouring them into glasses from a wide mouth jar can be so messy!

    I’m loving the cuppow that you mentioned, and I’m slowly but surely moving over to canning jars for storage from plastic.

    Reticula says:

    I buy raw milk from a herd share. It comes in half gallon mason jars. I could use the lids to make pouring the milk more manageable. I’m trying to store more foods in glass now in general, so these lids (what a fantastic idea) would make many foods/drinks easier to store and pour.

    Crow mom says:

    I love these!!! I would use it on my salad dressing, vanilla, or milk container.

  24. 924
    Terry Nelson says:

    So many of my dry items will go into canning jars with this lid and pour out easily. Sugars, dehydrated veggies, rices, beans, powdered milk. I don’t think 10 would be enough!

    Jan says:

    I would use the lids for salad dressings.

    Nell says:

    These lids would make turning jars into water/juice/ice tea bottles even easier!

  27. 927
    Lainey says:

    The lid would be great for pouring quinoa, millet, lentils, & all those tiny things that leap away from me & then scatter and hide under the fridge.

  28. 928

    What a nifty little item that lid is! It would be great to use for either as a sugar or creamer dispenser.

  29. 929
    Kathy Jenkins says:

    Wow, what a great idea! I would use the lid mostly for my homemade salad dressings or smoothies. I think it would make a great gift to fill a jar with something yummy and top with this unique lid. 🙂

    Kyle says:

    I use mason jars as glasses. A reCap lid would turn my glass into a water bottle!

    The possibilities are endless if they truly are leak-proof.

    Tina W. says:

    I would use it for my jars of water kefir.

  33. 933
    Maggie says:

    I would use to top a jar of salad dressing.

    Debbie M. says:

    I’d probably alternate it between a jar of homemade salad dressing, and the calcium water solution for Pomona’s Pectin. Both jars currently live in my fridge and these lids will be perfect!

    Kathi says:

    What a fantastically brilliant idea! I’d use them for my favorite BBQ sauce and homemade salad dressings.

    heather says:

    oooh! i make homemade peach black tea – this would be perfect for that! and dressing, too. fun!

  37. 937
    Cristina Eury says:

    I think this would be good of course for salad dressing but also shakes, homemade juice, tea, chai, coffee on the run, leftover soup, & even just plain drinking water from it!

    Aida Nava says:

    I make chocolate milk for my kids in canning jars! this would allow me to pour from the jar now without spilling!

    JanH says:

    I can think of a bunch of uses, but the first thing that came to mind was honey. I buy mine in large containers that are difficult to pour from. So I would pour once, then top the jar with a reCap for pouring. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Great device!

    Amber says:

    The first thing I think of is homemade salad dressing, but I wonder if you could use it as a sort of water bottle too… I guess it depends on how well the lid holds.

  41. 941
    Shawna P says:

    i LOVE mason jars and use them as cups/water bottles…so the reCAP would become my easy open lid for my drinks.

    Stormy says:

    These are so wonderful! I would totally use this as a water bottle (or a leak-proof holder for my margaritas this summer). 🙂

    Kimbrah Gonzalez says:

    I have been wanting to try my hand at lactofermented ketchup. This would be a perfect use for being able to use our awesome probiotic ketchup! 🙂

    Frankie Dunham says:

    I’d use mine to top the jar I keep the kids’ morning milk in. We have our own dairy goats and use raw milk exclusively. Twist off caps are hard for the kids to use and the fully open jar is a little tricky for them to pour from. It’d be nice for them to have that independence that kids of store milk families have due to package convenience.

    Sue says:

    I have been looking for something like this for a long time! I found but something with a lid would be great for my smoothies on the go!

    I have some canned lemon and lime syrups in regular-mouthed jars. That would make for very easy pouring of them!

    I’d use it as a travel mug for my sweet tea!

    Bonnie Prestin says:

    My husband bought a lot of little bottles of honey that are hard to use. I think I’d pour the little bottles into a mason jar (we have a lot since we can our pears and apples) and use this BPA free lid for that!

    I love my cuppow lids for drinking coffee, but i’d love a recap for drinking water from my jars. AND on my jars of maple syrup. Thanks for sharing your motherload.
