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.Β

    This is wonderful. I would use mine for my pepper sauce. It is so hard to pour the pepper sauce without losing some of the wonderful juice.

    I use mason jars instead of Tupperware so anything pourable would be perfect….salad dressings, iced coffe/tea, syrup, honey. Love this idea!

    Great Gods yess! I would very much like one! Or two!

    1. Homemade BBQ sauce (sweet and smoky hot)
    2. Honey
    3. Big jars of mead. Really, really large jars of mead.
    4. Home made tinctures of: vanilla, all spice, cinnamon, anise, and ginger
    5. Lemon cello. Really big jars of that, too.

    Love this idea! I would definitely take this to the gym with me as a waterbottle. πŸ™‚

    Cece says:

    Oh, SO many uses for this! Iced coffee for the morning commute springs to mind first, what with the weather warming and all. So glad they got funded!

    EmilyB says:

    I would pack my post-workout shake in a jar with this cool lid and take it to the gym with me.

    Laura Forrester says:

    So many good ideas in the comments! I’d use it for pouring the cream we get in quart jars, salad dressing and water or other beverages…after that, who knows, I’m sure I’d find dozens of uses πŸ™‚

    Brenda says:

    WOULD LOVE THESE LIDS!! So many uses like for my canned tomato juice, homeade syrup, bar bq sauce, dressings, etc.

    Dorothy says:

    I make a lemonade base for the summer, stored in a mason jar and aspired blackberry concentrate that I add to club soda for a grown up winter soft drink. They both would pour great from a ReCap!

    Michelle says:

    Water, smoothies, salad dressings, etc. Great idea…right up there with the Cuppow πŸ™‚

    Hannah M. says:

    It looks like that’d be handy for any number of things-I’d probably use it for a water/iced tea bottle lid, or maybe for storing cornmeal (it’d be nice to have a pour-spout for that, since it always get all over the counter when I pour it from the bag).

    Erin says:

    Just last night I used a mason jar to mix a seafood marinade. I often do the same for dressing. This is perfect!

  13. 113
    Helen says:

    So many possible uses! Salad dressings, DIY liqueurs, syrups, juices, bought in bulk spices/salt/sweeteners–the list goes on and on. I’ll definitely buy a few and use them constantly. Glad to hear that a wide-mouth one will soon be available. Thanks for the great info.

    I would use these everyday for my iced coffee that I make and take to my kindergarten classroom…gotta have that caffeine!!!

    carleed says:

    these might just be my new favorite thing! I’m lucky to be able to shop at a local market that has an amazing offering of bulk goods. they encourage use of reusable packaging, and these would be perfect to top the jars I fill with olive oil, honey, vinegar, and liquid detergent and the like. such a wonderful idea!!

    paula says:

    i will use the reCAP to organize my entire life. imagine vanilla infused sugar in the measuring cup instead of all over the counter, water/tea/kombucha in my mouth rather all over me, boozy infusions the my glass rather than dribbling down the jar…

  17. 117

    Hm, it might not be made for drinking but I would probably just use these for my morning coffee!

    kala says:

    Thanks so much for the chance to win! I’d use this for a jar of water to bring along during a walk.

    Loreena Storer says:

    Wow! What a neat idea! I have visions of using them to shake out seeds, nuts, salad dressing, and homemade mixes. I would use some of them on pint jars too for smaller amounts of goodies.

    ashleyo says:

    OMG! I have been waiting for these since you first posted! I want to use them as water bottles, for sauces, for vegetable stock… rice… everything!!

  21. 121
    Allison says:

    Brilliant. I’d probably use this primarily to carry around my iced coffee/fresh-squeezed juice for the day, but I’d also definitely use it for salad dressings and sauces.

  22. 122
    Deborah & Daryl says:

    Wow, these’d make storing and pouring honey WAY less sticky!

  23. 123
    Samantha Blomer says:

    Oooooh, what a GREAT idea!!! Yay!

  24. 124
    Cat says:

    I would use this for the jar of homemade almond milk I always keep in the fridge. It would be so much easier to pour into measuring cups or on granola!

  25. 125
    Vivian Moran says:

    I would use these for my daycare kiddos! They love to concoct their own drinks out of a variety of juices I have on hand and we mix them in mason jars. With these lids we can mix and go and save some for later!! Amongst a trillion other ideas, I think my kiddos would use them the most often.

    Rachel says:

    Thanks for sharing & the opportunity to win one of these lids. So many uses for these since I store lots of things in canning jars.

  27. 127

    reCAP would be perfect {PERFECT} for the mason jars containing the maple syrup that we harvested this year. Will they fit the Pint and 1/2 jars?

  28. 128
    Jordan says:

    OOOH!! They’d be perfect for dressings, storing leftover broth, special vinegars, homemade vanilla, etc. So cool!

    Stacy Thomas says:

    What wouldn’t I use it for? Trying to get away from storing food in plastic (lids are fine though), I use canning jars a LOT. You should see my fridge! Some people in my house (we won’t name them here) find the need to pour from all jars – so this totally makes sense and would keep messes down. I’m all for minimizing work!! Who isn’t, really? We have all kinds of sauces, soups, gravies, the last of larger containers of beverages, and much more in jars in the fridge alone – not to mention all the stuff in the cupboards. I’m also thinking bulk spices and teas, and other staples in the pantry! Okay, either way, I MUST get these! Several of them!

    Kassy says:

    Ooh! These would get so much use in my house! My kids love to help me make homemade salad dressings, so they’d definitely be used for that and for my cousin’s homemade maple syrup! Mmm.

    Vicky Bartelt says:

    Salad dressing for my reCAP! Awesome idea, love those fund and idea websites.

  32. 132
    Sarah Pavelko says:

    Salad dressing, applesauce and more!

  33. 133
    Jyotsna Tummalapalli says:

    Awesome idea! We love to drink out of mason jars because they are so plentiful at our house. I rarely take them out of the house however, because their round bottoms tend to turn over. This would be a great on-the-go converter!

  34. 134
    Paula Morhardt says:

    I am learning to eat the Eat Clean way, and this would be perfect for the grains I am now using in my meals. It would enable me to keep the grains free of bugs, yet easy for me to use, which would mean I would use them more often!

    bevy says:

    i make homemade salad dressing in mason jars… the pour spout will make using the dressing so easy and simple!

  36. 136
    Karen Avery says:

    I only drink from a mason jar ! Summer can be a bummer with the bugs, and its a real pain taking off the lid & ring everytime you want a sip so I just mold a piece of aluminum foil over the jar & stick a straw through it…it doesn’t look so good but keeps the bugs out. This is the 1st I’m hearing about these & just gotta have one

  37. 137
    Judith says:

    I would definitely need more than one reCAP – I would use mine for beverages to mixing salad dressings and slurry for gravy…the list goes on and on! What a great invention!

  38. 138
    Amy F says:

    Salad dressing would definitely be nice or dry goods like rice in the cupboard. How fun!

    Brenda says:

    This would be awesome for my sun tea to take on the go! So cool!!

    Sarah says:

    I would love to make SO many yummy organic thugs for my family and I am going to learn how to can this summer. This lid would be so handy as I am a busy Mom of 4 and it would help cut down on mess and save a little bit of time. πŸ™‚ These lids are an amazing idea!

    Kris says:

    What a great idea! I would use this for a water bottle while I am at work.

    Martha says:

    Great idea. I’d use them to store honey. The ones from the store get really messy.

  44. 144
    Colette says:

    I’d probably use it for grain like pinhead oats or malt o meal for breakfast cereal. Easy to pour out to make in the mornings. This is a great idea!

  45. 145
    Patty says:

    I use mason jars all the time. I would love to use a reCAP to drink out of the jars.

    Margie says:

    Wow! These sound great…I was thinking that maybe someday they will do such a cap for paint buckets. However, I have already done something with paint buckets…I throw them out after I pour leftover paint in a canning jar, top with a piece of plastic bag, then the lid and screw lid. Kept upside down the paint lasts forever for touch-ups. These new lids would make it even easier to pour out the paint. And they would be great for food, too. I am a long time canner – started helping my Mother when I was a child – and am still canning stuff at age 78!

  47. 147
    Alexis says:

    Oooo. Vanilla syrup, iced coffee, salad dressing, leftover chicken broth, buttermilk, Vitalyte…I could go on….

  48. 148
    BrendaP says:

    For maple syrup and raspberry syrup. For iced coffee and iced tea. Such a great product!

    Holly says:

    Oh, so cool! Looks handy for a million and one things!

    Awesome full-circle story! I see myself using them primarily for salad dressings and iced coffee at work. Thank you!
