Giveaway: Tulid Reusable Leak-Proof Lids

Tulid stacked from above

Traditional two piece canning jar lids are designed to seal easily and safely. That is what they’re best at and they do it well. However, those of us who use our mason jars for dry goods, leftovers, liquids, and other acts of storage and toting know that two piece lids often leave something to be desired.

Ball does make some plastic one piece lids, but they are neither air or liquid tight, so their utility is limited. Happily, the folks at Simpler Products have stepped into the void with a product called the Tulid. It’s a one piece lid that is reusable, totally leak-proof, and has a removable gasket that makes it dead easy to clean.

Tulid gaskets

I first discovered Tulid last fall when they were running their Kickstarter campaign. I backed the effort and got a package containing lids for both regular and wide mouth jars in early February. I’ve been using these lids very happily on a daily basis since then and am contemplating ordering more (they sell for $25 for three lids).

Tulid gaskets removed

The Tulid lids are great because they give you a very secure seal. I know that when I put them on a jar holding teriyaki sauce or maple syrup (two things I find myself storing on a regular basis), if the jar tips over in the fridge, it is not going to leak.

I also appreciate how easy they are to clean. The silicone gaskets pop out so that you can clean them completely and then slip right back into the lid when they are dry. The tops of the lid also work with wet erase markers, which means that you can clearly mark what’s in the jars (so that no one confuses the teriyaki sauce with the maple syrup).

Tulid in action

Obviously, these lids are not designed for canning. They are for storage and transportation and do a fabulous job of it. And thanks to the nice folks at Tulid, I have five sets of these lids to give away to Food in Jars readers. Here’s how to enter.

  1. Leave a comment on this post and share how you’d use these jars.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm on Saturday, March 8, 2014. Winners will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, March 9, 2014.
  3. Giveaway open to US.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left via the comment form on the blog at the bottom of this post.

Disclosure: Tulid has generously offered to provide the lids for this giveaway. No money has changed hands, I bought my own lids, and my opinions are, as always, my own.

    These would be great for making homemade salad dressings and soup for work.

    I make breadcrumb/spice mix for use on chicken and pork. These would make it easier to open up – shake some on, pop in oven.

    I think they’d get used most on homemade syrup and homemade juice in the fridge. Nice to know that they wouldn’t leak if the jar gets tipped.

    Deairdre Miller says:

    Very nice! I would use them on all the jars of leftovers that I take to work in my lunch.

    Kathy says:

    These look very promising. I’d use them for caps on jam and other preserves stored in the fridge, for leftovers housed in mason jars, or to cap some of the dry goods I keep in jars. Thanks for the review!

    Deanne says:

    I would use them for salad dressing, maple syrup (i buy it in gallon jugs), or homemade simple syrup.

    Stephen Bedford says:

    These look great. I use the ball plastic lids mentioned for my jams once they’re opened, but these look like they’d work better, more airtight. Also look like they’d be ideal for my jars of homemade Kimchee.

    I bring hot tea, yogurt and soups to work in mason jars. I’m always searching through the kids for good one-piece options.

    Andrea says:

    I like making simple syrups to store in the fridge, and these lids would be ideal. Also, transporting samples of homebrew beer (rather smaller samples than growler-sized, that is), such a secure seal would be fantastic.

    Sarah says:

    What wouldn’t I use them for! I use the Ball lids like crazy, but I have a few things, liked dried orange peel, that it would be nice to have a better seal for.

    I think these would be great for storing nuts in jars

    We do a lot of juicing and store the leftovers in the fridge- these would be perfect for that!

    Allison says:

    I got a couple of the wide-mouth lids and use them to bring breakfast (granola + milk) to work. I rest so much easier knowing that the seal is secure with these lids! Would love to win a couple more to for storing liquids in the fridge.

    I would use these to transport breastmilk – from the office to home, as well as for my husband to take with him when he’s out and about with the baby

    I just started making my own boba tea at home, I think these would be great for storing the boba balls, either dry or boiled. Great idea though, hopefully they have other color choices?

    I’d use them for shaking and then storing my homemade salad dressings, the mustard jars I use always leak!

    Would love to use for homemade almond milk, chia seeds, nuts… Heck my whole fridge is in mason jars!

    Chrissy says:

    Oh, the possibilities! For packing lunch, making yogurt, recovering jelly and/or pickle jars in the fridge…

    Abby says:

    I store so many things in my jars, and having reliably sealing lids would be great, especially when transporting liquids. I would use them to take my afternoon cold brew to the park with the kids.

    PepperReed says:

    Awesome! I store LOADS of stuff in canning jars and often take lunch in one. I’d likely use these for keeping my ginger syrup fresh in the fridge and for when I take soup or something messy for lunch to keep it from spilling. What a cool product and I hope I win!

    I would use this to bring ovaltine or smoothies to the office.

    We, too, store things like maple syrup in jars in the fridge. These lids would be great.

    Nancy A. says:

    I use my jars a lot to store left overs in the fridge and these would be wonderful! I make salad dressings and overnight oats and lots of things. I have seen these and they are amazing! Love them and need them as I was thinking that the 2 piece lids don’t keep your food airtight and fresh!

    Laura says:

    I would use these to take my smoothies to work.

    I use my jars everyday for food storage. These lids would be perfect for storing leftover juice after squeezing for smoothies. Thanks for the opportunity.

    These would be fabulous to take my breakfast and lunch to work, and not worry about a wet lunch bag!

    i think the site has a clear and colourful display, and gives a lot of information.
    These are perfect for my needs as I am older and arthritic. i know I am not eligible for this because I am in Ireland.
    i say this because these look so good I think you should approach senior citizens’ groups and the arthritis organisations. I also recommend them for those with any grip, shaking or knocking over problems through a little clumsiness (like me!).
    i suppose I will have to find these the other way, on the net? it is not just the non spill but the ease of taking apart that is vital. do you know that people have to take these things out with them so they can ask someone to undo things, or put them back together?
    I LOVE THEM and please, let us have some more of these types!

    Leanna R says:

    I make my own barbecue sauce and these would be perfect for the jar in the fridge. Like it that they are spill proof. I store my large batch of dry yeast in the fridge, too. Great concept.

    Would love them for lunch transport.

    We use canning jars for everything! I’d use these for my baby’s lunches at daycare on little four-ounce jars, and for salad dressings and almond syrup for me.

    Would love these for pickles

  37. 37
    Eliza says:

    I use my jars daily – going in and out of the fridge with leftovers, for ingredients during daily cooking, and of course my cold brew coffee! All of these items get opened and reopened constantly. I love the simplicity and cleanliness of this design! I saw these on kickstarter after they were already funded and thought, “I can’t wait to get some of those!”

    Michele says:

    Definitely would use these for packing soup for lunches. Wonderful idea.

    Gayle Erwin says:

    I would use the lids to carry liquid/soupy things back and forth in my lunch pail to work. I dislike when it gets gross from things leaking all over it. These lids would make that much better.

    ColleenB.~Texas says:

    would use them to put on jars of my homemade chocolate and caramel sauce or BBQ sauce, or for any of my homemade sauces. These would be great. Also be great for my pancake/waffle mixtures.
    Thank you for this opportunity

    Lori says:

    I’ve been looking at this product over the past week and contemplating an order. I’d love to try them out first 🙂

    I’ve recently been making overnight refrigerator oatmeal and these would be perfect for me to bring to work in my backpack, providing I have the right lid. As you mention, the standard lids leak if you are transporting liquid.

    Great product it seems… Tulid will go far in this space for sure.

    I use canning jars for flour, grain, and pasta storage. I have some jars but no lids for my dried beans, these lids would be perfect for that and the salads I take to work during the week!

  45. 45

    I would definitely use these to take food to work without worrying about it spilling on the way. I’ve had soup topple over before and this would put a stop to that.

  46. 46
    Mandy says:

    What a great idea! I’d use them for dry goods and bulks. Also transporting salad dressings to dinner parties.

  47. 47

    I’m working toward ridding my pantry/kitchen of all plastic and using only glass. Thus far, I’ve used regular canning lids/rings but these would be great for (like you) maple syrup in the fridge.

    Connie says:

    Wow, these lids are perfect for sending soup with my husband to work. At this time I have to send in a plastic leak proof container and he heats it in a glass bowl. This lid takes the glass bowl out of the occasion. I can think of numerous ways to use these lids for dry storage too.

    I make my own salad dressing and keep taco sauce and other liquids in mason jars. These lids would be perfect.
