Giveaway: Blossom uCap from Spice Ratchet

blossom ucaps

For the last few years, my favorite canning rack has been a flexible silicone trivet made by a company called Spice Ratchet. It has always been something of an off-label use though, as I’m fairly certain that they weren’t thinking canning when they made that trivet.

However, the nice folks at Spice Ratchet have recently released a line of silicone lids that are designed specifically for mason jars. These lids come in three different styles, are sold in packs of four, and have a number of applications.

cap n sip

The first style is a sipping cap. The lid snaps snugly onto the top of the jar and allows you to slip a straw into whatever liquid the jar holds. The lid isn’t entirely water tight (because it does have a hole in the top), but would definitely slow the flow if you were to knock it over.

Having spent the weekend with my spill prone nephew, I can see this one coming in very handy for households with kids. This style comes in both regular and wide mouth.

Next is the storage lid. Like the sipping cap, this style snaps tightly onto the top of a mason jar without needing to be screwed down or tightened.

It is leakproof and airtight, which means it is a great solution for both liquids and dry goods, because it will prevent spills and keep moisture out. This one also comes in both regular and wide mouth.

cap n fun

The final style is the flower frog. This jar topper has holes in the lid so you can use it for flower arrangements, clusters of party flags, or even as a cup holder. This lid only comes in a wide mouth version.

    I’d be using storage lids too. I make various oatmeal + dairy + spices and/or fruit breakfasts and these would be great. I think I’d get a couple sets to color code mixes for hurried or tired mornings.

    Sandy Hines says:

    I never throw a jar away and I’m always scrounging around for a good lid. These would be perfect.
    The sippy lid is such a good idea as is the frog top. I always have flowers on my table whenever I
    can get them, both of them are really good ideas.

    A great travel mug. Good for leftovers. Flower arranging. My friend needs these when she feeds a sick friend to avoid spillage and choking.

    Teaching Pre K, these lids would allow me to showcase all the beautiful flowers the children pick for me!

    Cecile says:

    I am always using my jars as glasses, so the sippy seals would be great. These lids will be great addition to my kitchen

    Always in search of rust proof lids for my mason jars. These would be perfect!

    You can never go wrong using a mason jar and these lids would be a great help. I think I’d probably use the sipping cap first. Great way to enjoy a drink outside at night without worrying about bugs getting into your drink.

    Bonnie DeMoss says:

    I would use the sipping cap and storage lids daily. I do a lot of work on the road. I can put the storage cap on my mason jar drink (probably iced green tea) while I’m driving, and then use the sipping cap when I’m ready to drink my tea.

    Amy S. says:

    I take drinks to work often, so I’m sure they could be used for my morning caffinated beverages. And the flower frog is a great idea!

    I am remodeling my kitchen and using lots of canning jars for accent pieces. These caps would add so much to my display. What great ideas and solutions to everyday problems.

    These are do cool! I like the storage and sippy lids.

    Gwen says:

    I love the flower lid. How pretty with the vintage jars full of flowers. Super excited to have some.

    Carrie says:

    My daughter would confiscate the sip lid, I would use the other lids for scented flowers and covering partially used canned items.

    Michelle says:

    I’m the tip prone person in my house, so the sipping cap would come in very handy.

    I would love to win these silicone lids, although it is now all the rage to drink from mason jars I have had a set for the past 30 years and I love to use them. When I unpacked them after I got married my husband scoffed at them and told me they were antiquated and no one would want to drink from those. Well now not only are my “antiquated glasses” the biggest hit but I think they would be spectacular with these lovely lids. Gilding the Lily to me.

    Also have your new book and I love it and have already made several recipes. Just waiting for my spice order to make the tomato jam with smoked Paprika in it.

    The straw ones would be great for my kids! They are always tipping something over!

    Andrea says:

    With all my jars with two piece lids in the fridge, I’d love the storage lid to reduce fumbling around.

    Roberta Morgan-Larson says:

    What clever ideas! I use canning jars or just about everything. The drinking lids will make it so much easier to take along the kid’s favorite drinks when we travel,or just out on the porch. No more rewashing cups because we don’t know which belongs to who!

  19. 369
    Michelle says:

    What wouldn’t I use them for? I am always in search if kids for the fridge and other storage needs. And the straw top ones would be great for drinks on the go. 🙂

    Christine says:

    I have used glass jars for years to store pantry and fridge items. The 2-piece lids are not practical when storing opened jars of yummy homemade jams and jellies, not to mention mustards. I’ve always used the white plastic screw-on lids, but these are so much prettier.

    Lids for my first ever peach jam while in the Fridg!!!

    Duddie says:

    I like the idea of a straw in the lid but mostly I like the idea of not having to use two piece lids for storage!

    Carol says:

    I love the frogs! I use wide mouth canning jars for vases all the time, this is a great idea.

    Susan Webb says:

    I am a bit of a skeptic. Don’t know about my spelling either! I just can’t imagine putting one of these items on a canning jar as an easy thing to do. I live in rural America so probably wont see anything like it around here. Thanks for a new idea as I love Ball canning jars.

    Regina Harris says:

    I would love to use these for flower arrangements as it is so hard to keep the blossoms where you want without something. I currently use floral tape. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Jeff says:

    I know it’s too late for the drawing, but I was struck at how perfect these lids would be for fermenting! The sour-dill pickles, sauerkraut, and kimchee that I make in small batches have healed my digestion, and mostly fixed my multiple chemical sensitivity.

    These sound so neat! I have a bunch of little kids; anything that reduces spills is a winner here.

    Catherine says:

    I have a friend who uses Mason jars instead of glasses. I see one on her desk at work each day and wonder if today will be the day her keyboard bites the dust when the jar goes over. These would be the perfect gift for her!

    Carol Brady says:

    Maybe I missed it, but can the storage lids be used for actual canning? Or just for closing already canned – in use or dry goods in jars?

    Nicoe says:

    Oh goodness! 383 entries in! Whew. I’m really pushing the laws of probability here…BUT, I love the lids. I have 1000 ideas for the storage lid. We purchase most of our dry goods in bulk and store them in glass. These widemouth lids would be very, very handy!

    Nancy S. says:

    We have some handled drinking mason jars, so the straw lids would be great. I like the idea of the snap-on silicone lid for refrigerator storage, too.

  32. 382
    Lisa says:

    I store EVERYTHING in jars and these lids look like a perfect (and colorful) option to use instead of old canning lids.

  33. 383
    Sheri says:

    I love the idea of using a top with an opening for a straw on a mason jar. They would be handy for my older kid and fun for adults too.

  34. 384

    I can always use more lids for after I often a jar of preserves, especially leak-proof ones!

    Robin S says:

    I love giving jars full of flowers as gifts! The frog would make it so easy <3

    Such a cool product!

    Love these! Sippers, lids when I pop open jars in the fridge, pretty blooms on my countertop – ai’m so excited!

  37. 387
    Colleen says:

    I would love these for my iced coffee! I would use be solid lids for canning jars to be refrigerated and I could use the frog to top my room freshner jars (baking soda and essential oils) !!

    Jess Lamson says:

    My kids would love these! I’m sure we’d have fewer spills!
