Giveaway: Stainless Steel Storage + Sprouting Lids from Mason Jar Lifestyle

March 27, 2017

I’ve been a regular mason jar user for nearly two decades now. In addition to canning and fermenting food in them, I fill them with dry goods. I use them to pack lunches. I macerate fruit for jam in the big ones. They are filled with dinner leftovers, sourdough starters, smoothies, brewing kombucha, and more. Somewhere in our apartment, there’s a even a jar filled to the brim with LEGO minifigures.

Though there has been a steady increase in jar accessories and adapters over the last four or five years, to my mind there has always been a void in the marketplace. A one-piece storage lid that didn’t rust, was easy to clean, didn’t leak, and wasn’t prohibitively expensive.

Happily, the folks at Mason Jar Lifestyle have arrived to fill that void. They recently started selling one-piece stainless steel lids that are fitted with silicone seals that are easily removable for cleaning. They are leakproof, non-reactive, dishwasher safe, and so much more affordable than anything else I’ve seen.

They are ideal for salad dressings and vinaigrettes because the lids don’t leak when you give them a good shake. I don’t mind using them on my jars of dry goods because they’re affordable enough that I don’t feel like I need to save them for special things. And they’re easy to put on and off the jars.

The storage lids come in both regular and wide mouth, and are sold in packs of five. And if that’s not enough to meet your needs, Ryan and Maggie at Mason Jar Lifestyle offer discounts on higher volume purchases (buy 100 or more and you’ll get 40% off your order!).

You can also use the code “fij10” now through March 31 to get 10% off any order at Mason Jar Lifestyle. Right now, my favorite thing they sell is the silicone sleeve designed to fit the 24 ounce Pint & Half jars. Paired with a drink lid and a stainless steel straw and I am ready for iced coffee season!

For our giveaway this week, two lucky readers will each receive a five pack of the regular mouth stainless steel storage lids with silicone seals, a five pack of the wide mouth stainless steel storage lids with silicone seals, and one stainless steel sprouting lid and band like you see pictured above (because sprouting is fun! Look for a blog post on the topic in the near future).

  • Wow!!! I would love those for things like dressings. I would also like them to travel to work with my Iced coffee. I can store it in the firdge and drink as wanted.

  • These lids would be a great addition to any household. Good for work lunches, and anything that has to go in the fridge. Not bad for various crafting supplies too!

  • I had no idea sprouting lids were a thing! I’ve always used a bit of nylon from a pair of pantyhose. This is definitely a more elegant solution 😉

  • I would try to sprout buckwheat or lentils. I keep seeing recipes that sound interesting, and they all require sprouted things!

  • Nicer sprouting lid than netting! I used to use in the “hippie” days. Would use the stainless steel lids with half pint jars for making yogurt.

  • Love the new stainless steel lids! I have a hoard of old tomato sauce and jelly lids that fit mason jars that I use for things like vinaigrette, but they’re getting a little “iffy” looking. Would love to replace all of them.

  • Living on a boat, I do not always have access to fresh greens. Using a quart mason jar and screening on the lid, I have fresh greens for my husband and me. It is so easy and they are yummy on a sandwich or as an addition to a salad!

  • I would use these lids all the time! I keep everything in Mason Jars – pantry staples, leftovers in the fridge – everything!

  • The sprouting lids are an interesting idea. I might like to try them out for the chickens.

  • I am always looking for the perfect lid for salad dressing and the yoghurt my partner takes does his lunch! These look great. Sprouting would be fun to try too!

  • I used to sprout all the time. I still have seeds. Not sure if they are still viable but if I win, I will give them a dry.

  • My family lives on a boat. Everything in our world is touched by salt water. The bands develop rust so quickly! At the moment, my home canned goodies are tucked away in a deep, hard to reach storage locker, to try and protect them as well as I can. We only pull them out for rapid consumption with company before sending them off boat. Being able to continue canning while living aboard would be fantastic.

  • Definitely for sauces or dressings. I always have a leaky har if salad dressing making a mess in my fridge.

  • That little video on how to make a mold of a Ball jar and then make a candle was really interesting, only I had to turn the sound off it was just too annoying. But the visual was great. I’m thinking of all of the wonderful sizes and shapes of Ball jars there are now that would make great candles.

    The sprouting lids look interesting but I’m thinking of other purposes. The screen is quite fine so I’m thinking they might work for a seed shaker when dealing with really small, fine seeds that are even too small to adequately sow with a spice jar.

  • I store foods & supplies in my canning jars as well as use them for serving utensils. The ways to use these lids are endless.

  • I would definitely use these for salad dressings! And, while I have a sprouting lid already, it wouldn’t hurt to have another one. That way, I could have a few jars going at once and I could stagger the growth so I’d have a continuous supply (I love sprouts…).

  • This just may be one of the best giveaways you have done! Love these. reuse time after time on dry goods, salad dressing, taking a drink/lunch.

  • Sprouting is fun. This lid would sure come in handy. I always make my ranch dressing in a jar. it just makes it so much easier to shake the ingredients rather than try to mix them. And I have dealt with leaky lids. No fun when shaking.

  • I would love to have these lids, especially the one for sprouting. I want to try that and add them to my salads. Love all the lids, though!

  • So many possibilities for these lids, but definitely salad dressings to take to work and storing things in the pantry!

  • Stainless Steel Lids???!!! YES I’ve been wanting a rust proof lid that doesn’t leak for years!!!! And I’m gonna order some first thing in the morning. Love that little sprouting lid too although I still use my ancient plastic ones & even a nylon ‘footie’ with a ring sometimes. I just love cabbage, radish & onion sprouts!!!!

  • would use for my homemade salad dressing, BBQ sauces, etc.
    Thank U 4 this giveaway opportunity

  • I make my own dressings and sauces and store them in jars. it would be awesome not to have to worry about them flying all over the kitchen when I shake! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  • I really could have used that one piece stainless steel lid last night. I just finished my a grapefruit jalapeño shrub and funneled it neatly into a pint mason jar but could not find a top for my jar. I had to scour my house for a top. I have jars and rings, but no tops. While I did finally find one, these would have been much easier.

  • I recently discovered that my brother likes bean sprouts….so I would sprout some for him. And the lids? I would use on all the jars that I already use for storage and prep work

  • I would definitely be using these lids for all the times that I store dry goods in the larger mason jars. I’ve been using them for many years – and have always thought that the two part lid should/could be one part for that. Salad dressings, particularly those that are refrigerated, would also be easier with one part. LOVE to sprout – usually have two or three different kinds going at once!

  • Oh a mesh sprouting lid! I’ve been using square of cheese cloth and a rubberband. Would love something that I can rinse and re-use!

  • Both types of lids seem very useful. Would love to supplement the between season with sprouted greens. Roots are running out or past their prime after winter storage, and spring produce doesn’t really get going full force until May or June in the Northeast. Also, some Indian sprouted legume dishes are very good and digestible.

  • Although I try to rid my house of visiting critters…
    This would so help to keep my dry goods safe!
    I have many mason jars, and I use canning lids,
    But to have stainless steel lids? That would be supreme!

  • I use my mason jars for transporting liquids to work and always have to put the jar in a plastic bag because the lids leak like crazy and I’ve gotten milk everywhere before! I also want to start sprouting wheat to use for bread dough, my other big adventure these days!

  • Genius! This fitment is exactly what I have been waiting for. Mason jars are the workhorse of the kitchen and this little ring will make jar life so much nicer!

  • I am new to sprouting and have been looking for a mesh screen that isn’t plastic. I dislike plastic which is why I use the jars so much. I just feel that after time the plastic breaks down and leaches into our foods.

  • We just started growing sprouts for sandwiches and salads. Would be fun to have several different varieties going at the same time!

  • I store leftovers in Mason jars all the time, and the stainless lids would be wonderful. They would also be great for taking a salad or soup in a jar. I have not sprouted seeds for, but the lids would inspire me to try it.

  • I’ve tried sprouting mung beans before using cheesecloth, and I’d love to have a reusable mesh screen for that! And I have an army of the plastic storage caps but they don’t seal well, and these look great.

  • Oh, i love the idea of having a non-rusting lid for all of my leftover storage! And I’d love to try the sprouting lid.

  • What a great idea, every kitchen needs some lids with seals. Love the idea of using them for dressings and that the gasket can be removed for washing.

  • Ohh I neeeeeed this, last year my sprouting jar fell to the floor for an untimely demise and I haven’t sprouted since! I miss it so much, my favourite sprouts are lentils!

  • I would love the one piece lids for storing in the refrigerator – too many times, a jar with one of the plastic lids has gotten knocked over and I hate the clean-up.

  • Sprouting and traveling with my morning smoothie will now be safer (when I shake in the hemp seeds).

  • I would use those lids for everything from storing leftovers to sewing notions to snacks and more. The sprouting lid looks like it could even be used as a sifter / duster for powdered sugar and such.

  • I’ve been making fewer salad dressings for precisely that reason (leaky and rusty mason jar lids!), so these lids would be such a boon to promoting lots of spring salad eats at home. What a good investment!S

  • I take dressings and sauces to work regularly and, while I’ve yet to have one leak, some extra assurance would be nice. I haven’t tried sprouting yet. I might at some point though.

  • I love the idea of trying out some sprouting. I would also use the lids just for travel-safe options with my smoothies.

  • Good Morning, Would love to tell you that I appreciate all that you offer as giveaways. I also appreciate all the recipes and posts you make on your page.

  • I like to make sprouts to go on my salads. I have to use a piece of netting on the top of my canning jar to make them. This is such a great idea. I would love a set.
