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).

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 perfect to put on jars of home made spice mixes, and freshly opened jars of home made pickles!
    (for some reason they always get sloshed around in our fridge and end up rusting the rings)

    These lids would come in very handled for packing my lunch. I just started packing m y lunch using various mason jars and lids. Leak proof lids would save me from putting the jars in plastic bags so they don’t leak in my work tote.

    Cool product! I would use them for homemade salad dressing – I usually use reclaimed jars and screw-top lids but when you shake it up they tend to leak.

    Kelly says:

    I would use these for open jams. I have to clean the “jam” shelf in our fridge just about every week when my father-in-law tips over an open jar. Perhaps this can save us some trouble.

    Lunchbox items! My bento box has “open” inserts. I would love to carry pickles without the brine getting everywhere. The small four ounce canning jars with these lids would be perfect for the job.

    Rachele M says:

    I’d use these lids to transport my homemade apple butter to the wineries with me this spring. It’s so good with crackers & sausage, but it never fails that leaks happen during the trip.

    I would use these lids to cover my overnight oats (oatmeal, yogurt and milk) that I make for my son and I’s breakfast each morning. Right now I wash the two part lids and jars every night and rust is starting to build up on the bands. This product would make my morning and evening prep/clean up a breeze.

    Joy says:

    These are brilliant! I love mason jars for homemade salad dressing but they make a mess if your over enthusiastic six year old helps shake them. These would be the perfect solution.

    Alana Jackson says:

    These lids are gorgeous…
    I love the bright colors, just beautiful.
    I would definitely have to use these lids on my homemade medicines…
    I make tinctures, and most of them I keep in Mason jars in the fridge, and I would use these lids for those jars, because every once in awhile a jar will get bumped and fall over, at least with these lids I won’t have anymore messes to clean up.
    And my fridge will look bright and cheery from now on!

    This is the greatest, I store lots of dry goods in my caning jars, I am sure these lids would be terrific.
    Writing on the lid a date is the best. I love the colors.

    Devon H says:

    I need these in my life! I’m always knocking over open jars if things in the fridge in my attempt to shove things inside and then…I notice spills everywhere much later. Sigh. These would be so helpful to keep open jars of leftover pasta sauce or stored extras from ginormous cans of tomato purée from Costco, open jars of my salsa, chicken broth, leftover cold coffee, etc….did I say I needed these in my life? 😉

    I was *just* talking to a friend about this problem! Every day I bring my morning coffee and my salad for lunch in jars and would love to not have to deal with the two-piece lids!

    These would make great travel containers for road snacks. The bright lids make snacks easier to identify quickly without distracting you from the task of driving.

    Oh, how I could use these in my pantry because I use Mason Jars for storage of everything from chocolate chips to pasta! They are quite fun looking, too!

    Great idea – would be wonderful for storing extras of the large jars of pickles, salsas, etc that I seem to accumulate in the refrigerator.

    In my refrigerator right now I have hummingbird nectar and coconut milk that could use a spill proof lid!

    Zubayda M says:

    I often carry salad for lunch. I would use the jars for salad dressing as I don’t like to carry the whole bottle to work. I would also use them for small servings of milk or juice.

  44. 394
    Alison says:

    I’d use the lids for my iced coffee and for making salad dressing. And maybe making whipped cream, too. I like to shake it in a jar so I can make just a little, plus it burns off some calories.

    Pat Sparks says:

    These lids would be great for all the stuff that I put in the fridge that has already been opened (pickles, jams, jellies, soups, etc.).

    Jenny K. says:

    I’d use them for my lunch! Everything is in either mason jars or pyrex & I’m constantly juggling ring pieces at work.

    Oh gosh, I would use these for EVERYTHING. I store small amounts of baking supplies in Mason jars, and would love an alternative to the two-piece business.

    I would definitely use these for leftover soup. And I would be able to bring them to work without destroying the interior of my bag!
