November 4, 2014

This week’s giveaway comes to us from our friends at Cuppow (they’re also regular Food in Jars sponsors). Recently, they’ve been focusing on expanding the mason jar-related products they carry and have picked up a couple really terrific items lately.

The first piece of gear that they recently added to their online shop is the Mason Tap. Designed to fit snugly onto a regular mouth mason, the tap allows you to dispense from a jar easily and without making a mess. I’ve got one on a bottle of salad dressing and my sister hooked one up to her jar of chia seeds.

Another new product that they’re carrying is the CoffeeSock. These reusable coffee filters come in seven different sizes (including ones designed for cold brew, Hario, and Chemex) and are amazing for the amount of trash they can reduce. I realize that they aren’t specifically related to mason jars, but they fit in perfectly with the rest of the Cuppow products in that they’re all designed to help you reuse things and reduce waste.

A couple weeks back, the guys at Cuppow sent me a big box of lids, BNTOs, Mason Taps, and CoffeeSocks. Today, I’m passing some of the mason jar abundance on to you guys. I’ve put together five sets of gear. Each of the five winners will receive a couple Cuppow lids, a BNTO, a Mason Tap, and a CoffeeSock. Colors and styles of CoffeeSocks will vary. Here’s how to enter.

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me how you’d use a Mason Tap. Salad dressing, maple syrup, chia seeds or something else? There is no wrong answer.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm east coast time on Sunday, November 9, 2014. The winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog by Monday, November 10, 2014.
  3. Giveaway is open to all.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left on the blog, I cannot accept submissions via email.

Disclosure: Cuppow is providing all the gear for the giveaway. I am keeping a couple of the Mason Taps because they are awesome. Cuppow is a Food in Jars sponsor, but they did not provide any additional compensation beyond their sponsorship purchase. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely mine.

  • I have recently learned how to make boiled cider and am using it in everything I make with apples. The main problem is that the threads on my Mason jar gets sticky and hard to remove because I’m always pouring from it. The Mason Tap would be perfect for my new cider obsession.

  • I’d go the salad dressing route – I like to use mason jars for mixing up homemade salad dressings and this would make serving it so much easier!

  • Fantastic! Salad dressing does seem like the obvious answer for using a Mason Tap, but I wonder about using it for a dish soap dispenser?

  • Wow – what a cool idea! I’d love to have one with maple syrup! It would also work well for olive oil. Great idea!

  • Probably salad dressing, but I’ve been wanting to try making bitters – to go in our Saturday night manhattans with the homemade maraschino cherries that turned oh so well this year. Bitters from the jar tap would be great.

  • I am making Peppa’ Sauce with the remaining peppers I have. However, I did not know how to serve the sauce from a canning jar. Tada! That is how I would use them.

  • Like most I could totally use it for my oils but I was thinking if the spout was large enough, I keep a jar of popcorn toppings on the counter top (right now nutritious yeast flakes) and this would look good to replace my screw top jar to make it easier to sprinkle the toppings right on the popcorn with out needing to dirty a spoon.

  • Well I thought I would never see the day as a mason tap would have been created I have for years tried to find something like this and woohoo right there it is, being from KY the first thought that went through my head was this would be great for someone who drinks Moonshine so as not to spill it when getting just a tad bit tipsy, but my favorite to put into it would be my Homemade cranberry pancake syrup and not have to worry about my family having it all over the counter tops and such, Thank you so much for the chance at winning such a FANTASTIC gizmo and me finally being able to see it..

  • Liquid soap my container it came in is leaking and I have to find another vessel. Right now its in a bucket but this tap would be perfect cute design and function. I could also use for honey when i refill at the store. Thanks

  • These would be great for pouring a little bit of pancake toppers, whether apple syrup, maple syrup or currant syrup.

  • Wow! Great giveaway! There are so many great ideas already given but I think I would probably use it for my olive oil that I constantly have to refill.

  • I make juices and syrups and am always having to put them in something else to use. This spout is a great idea …. I cant imagine spending $20 for one spout……so I really hope I win 🙂

  • I have been trying to make more of my own salad dressings and I really think these new products are amazing!!! I can’t wait to try one!!!

  • I would use the mason tap for my jar of roasted tomatoes! I keep the oil they’re packed in for cooking and salad dressing but the its kind of a mess to get out of the jar.

  • I would definitely use it for salad dressing! canning jars are my go-to for shaking up a fresh batch of vinaigrette for my family.

  • Hard to pick just one. I guess maple syrup would be first, followed by olive oil, salad dressing, cider molasses, homemade hot sauce….I need lots of them!

  • Mason Tap? Genius. I do think my first try would be a salad dressing, but I bet it is one of those things that becomes indispensable (no pun intended) once you have it.

  • For fig and ginger syrups. Also for mulling spice infused vodka! They are already in jars so this would be a way easier way to drizzle them out.

  • I’d use it for homemade chili oil or homemade vanilla extract (and let the beans infuse in the mason jar)! Thanks!

  • I’d use one for my fruit-infused vinegars — I have black raspberry, sweet cherry pit, and chive blossom on hand for salads and other uses right now.

  • I would use my Mason Tap to hold cooking oil I think: sunflower or organic canola.

    Thanks for the chance.

  • Straining, cocktails. Oh yes. I currently try to do this with just the flat lid and end up making a mess every time.

  • I would put “homemade coffee creamer that is WAY better (and cheaper) than storebought” in a Mason Tap. Grab some cold press ice coffee (made in another Mason jar of course) out of the fridge, zap it in the microwave, pour in some homemade creamer and snuggle up with a book and my afghan, and I can’t think of a better way to spend a chilly fall evening.

  • I would definitely try maple syrup, we use a plastic bottle right now. I think honey would work too, for the jars of honey from my brother’s bees.

  • Those are cool! I would use the tap for homemade dressings, and maybe even dish soap! These are just adorable! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  • What interesting items! Looks like a game of “Do you know what this is?”.
    The tap would be especially useful for many things.

  • I would find a Mason Tap very useful for dispensing oil. Olive oil, for salads, or canola oil, into a sauté pan.

  • I think the classic straight-up olive oil sounds like my speed — but yeah, I do see myself using these. I’ll gave to go shopping!

  • I currently use a plastic sqeeze bottle for my olive oil but I’m not so sure the plastic is ok. I would use a mason tap on a jar for that instead.

  • I always keep a jar of rich simple syrup in my fridge for cocktails, the tap would be perfect for that! Gets a little messy pouring straight from the jar.

  • I already use mason jars for much of my pantry, but the mason tap would be perfect to do this for oils, etc as well. Using one for chia seeds sounds brilliant as well.

  • I use mason jars for lots of things so a tap would be great, and being able to have my own sippy cup from a mason jar would be fun too.

  • Great for making gifts of soap dispensers, oil dispenser and for the great peach syrup I made this year… These will be amazing

  • Homemade vanilla extract! The tap looks like it wouldn’t waste any dribbles down the side of the jar like my bottle does. Definite win.

  • I’ve got a pear simple syrup that I’ve been spooning out of a jar with a regular storage lid – the tap would be perfect for it.

  • Ooh- the mason tap! Very cool. I would probably use it for salad dressing, or for the hot sauce I just made.

  • I love the idea of the Mason Tap – I use lots of mason jars and always have a selection of the reusable (white plastic) lids handy. I think Chia seeds or flax seeds would be ideal for this, but I also make my own salad dressings. I’ll have to see if I can buy these in Canada.

  • I would use it for salad dressings. It would be perfect since I already use a Mason jar to shake up my own concoctions!

  • I would use it for many things – flavored oils, salad dressings, homemade syrups, etc. Looks like a great tool for the kitchen.

  • I would use the Mason Tap not only for salad dressing but also for homemade flavored syrups. Love to use them with plain seltzer as a refreshing soda type of drink.

  • Well, golly. I left a comment yesterday, but suddenly cannot find it. Sorry if this is a duplicate. I love the idea of a tap spout! That is really cool! I think I’d use it for putting my dish soap in, to make it look pretty! Either that, or homemade dressing, syrup, or heavy cream! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win! So excited! Have a happy day!

  • I love this – the BNTO would make it possible to take yogurt and granola for snack or lunch and not have soggy granola or lots of baggies!

  • I would use it for the hot sauce I just made. I seem to make a mess every time I pour it from my mason jar and this would clearly be the perfect solution.
