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 are fantastic! I used canning jars for everything, but most especially to store and transport our goat milk. I use the one-piece plastic caps right now, but would love to try these gasketted caps. Thanks for letting us know about them.

    My family uses canning jars all the time for lunch box items. These would finally solve the problem of leaking lids that can really wreck your lunch!

    I would use them in the fridge and in the pantry. They would be especially handy to keep me from yelling at my husband who seems to keep forgetting that you can’t shake the white storage lids because it makes a mess. I need these!

    Kristin Fish says:

    For lunches, leftovers, and beverages that can/need to be refrigerated. I really like the look of these gaskets. I’ve been cursing the ring style ones that I use on some plastic bottles–you have to pry them out with something small otherwise nasty things grow in there.

    I would use these for transporting my breakfast and lunches to work everyday. I love not using plastic and using reusables

    Storing opened jars of pickles!!! People keep knocking them over and getting pickle juice all over the fridge.

    Penny says:

    I keep my goat milk in mason jars, would be nice knowing it’s not going to leak if tipped over, not that it would ever get knocked around in a fridge with 4 boys!

    These would be SWEET! I have some of the plastic ones too and have to use a flat with it which is sometimes hard to get out. I carry a pint of iced tea with me in my purse. This would be perfect!

    Val Russell says:

    Would love these…I could see using for making homemade dressings, shake and serve. Also for making quick pudding…shake and serve too!

    I use the Ball storage lids for hauling various things around, but as you mentioned they’re not quite leak proof, so I’d get a lot of mileage out of these!

  21. 321
    Carol Lindsay says:

    Oh – what a pleasure they must be to use! No leaks, pretty colors, unbreakable, both regular and wide mouth sizes. This would solve many, if not all of my storage problems both on the cupboard shelves and in the frig.

    Rosemary Whitton says:

    Love my mason jars! I would use to take left overs for lunch at work. It’s great to take soup in!

    Lindsay says:

    I brew herbal tea in mason jars everyday and the regular plastic lids always leak. These would be the perfect!

    Mia says:

    I would use them for shaking up margaritas!

    I would use it for my home made yogurt and vanlla extract!!

    K in Philly says:

    I did the kickstarter for these as well – and love them! I have homemade hot fudge in jars right now, with “hot fudge 2/28” written on the top in a dry erase marker. Great for leftover soup in quart jars as well. I’d love to have more.

    Jo'Ann Godshall says:

    I would use them for my opened jars in the fridge. Also for “brewing” my flavored water

    Misha says:

    Oh, these look awesome! They’d be perfect to use with BNTO from Cuppow without having to worry about any leaks. And of course for leftovers in the fridge, and all the pantry items I keep in jars.

    TC says:

    I’d use them for bringing soup to work. I’m always afraid of spillage because I commute by bus!

    Michelle says:

    I would use them for lunches – a mason jar has been the best soup transport vehicle I’ve found (if you have a bowl handy at work for heating and serving) but you still have to be careful to keep it upright. And iced coffee!

    Bettina Athey says:

    I make my own yogurt in canning jars. I think these lids would be perfect.

  34. 334
    Becky says:

    I’d use them for everything! All of my dried storage and things in the refrigerator like broth. These look great!

  35. 335
    Eileen Reeder says:

    I’d use these lids for storing things in Mason jars. And for taking things for lunch in jars. No more leaks. I have to get some of these!

  36. 336
    Angela says:

    I think these lids would be great for fridge pickles. I find the metal lids always rust and these would provide a good seal to prevent leaks.

    Brenda Haramis says:

    Oh, boy, these look great. I store my sourdough starter in a 2 quart canning jar. Wouldn’t it be great to be using an air tight/ leak proof lid. Of course, canning jars are my “go-to” storage containers for left overs, dried fruit, raisins, yeast, and other baking ingredients. In a humid summer climate, keeping some ingredients absolutely dry is essential. Alternately, there are ingredients that need to be kept moist such as rains and dried fruit. These lids are a wonderful idea for our canning jars.

    I’ve started using large mason jars to store the smaller amounts of specialty grains I’ve been buying. I’d love to have lids that are more certain to keep these fresh!

    To take food to work with me like yogurt parfaits!

    Susan says:

    These look great. I would use them for transporting my mason jar lunches and for salad dressings. Thanks!

    Sue Ann says:

    I will use these for lunches and ‘road trip’ snacks. Mason jars fit so nicely in the cup holders.

  42. 342
    Kate says:

    Yay! Finally a way to bring soup and salad dressing to work that won’t leak!

  43. 343
    Virginia Utigard says:

    I would use a lot for opened jars in fridge

  44. 344
    Jennifer says:

    I would use these immediately for yogurt which I make in bulk every couple of weeks and for my water kefir which seems to escape and seep out of the ball lids. Can’t wait to try them!

  45. 345
    ct says:

    To seal jars that contain bulk ingredients for making granola.

    Karen Hanna says:

    Great idea! Didn’t know about them – love that they are ‘no leak’. 🙂

    I would use these lids for mason jar salads and for storing fermented pickles.

    Keri says:

    Pickled beets! I am moving into my first home with a shiny new refrigerator and would rather not stain it immediately.

    I use my jars more and more for everyday food storage, especially baking goods like nuts and all sorts of chocolate chips.

    I’d love to use these for different types of vinegars!
