Giveaway: Strainer Lids for Mason Jars

July 21, 2015

four strainer lids

Sometimes, someone will email me to tell me about a new mason jar product that they’ve designed and I’ll think, “Yes! I’ve always wanted that!” Such is the case with these stainless steel wire mesh lids. So often, I’ve wished for an easy way to strain from a jar, or a quick way to turn a small mason jar into a parmesan cheese shaker for parties, and now, here it is!

Other ideas for these lids include using them to sprout beans and seeds, or any time you want an easy way to soak and then strain things (prepping small amounts of beans for adding to soup springs immediately to mind). I’m really curious though, how could you see something like this being useful in your life?

  • I would use them for easy rinsing and draining of lentil sprouts. Also, they would be great for doing the powdered sugar roll test for mites on my honeybees. I’m not kidding! 😀

  • My first thought was to use this for sprouting seeds. But I also like the idea of turning a jar into a sifter for flour or sugar.

  • I keep my different rubs for meats and chicken in 1/2 pint jars. This would be great for sprinkling the rub on to the meat/chicken before rubbing it in.

  • I would use it for sprouts, but reading all these comments is giving me all kinds of ideas. I might need to just buy some myself!

  • This is a super “attachment”. I can see using it to sprinkle powdered sugar on baked desserts or same but with floor when I make homemade ravioli & I need a dusting of floor on mold before I lay dough down.

  • I’d use them for flour and sugar. When you coat things, you always a end up throwing out a lot of flour or sugar because you can’t reuse it. This would solve that problem. I also like thee idea of sprouting beans

  • I’d probably use it for powdered sugar dusting, oooor for straining syrups when I make them with left over fruit bits from canning in order to use the syrup in mixed drinks!

  • Perfect for soaking sticky rice, and maybe I can even set the drained jar (sans lid) into simmering water to steam the rice right in it.

  • One of the many things I would use these for is storing saved beans and peas at the end of the season when I think they are dry enough to store but am a little reluctant to commit to sealing air tight in case of moisture. Shaking dried herbs into recipes without getting twigs along for the ride would be great, too!

  • I’d keep a pint of flour nearby and use it for dusting countertops or adding just a little more flour to dough. Cute idea!

  • When I get toward the bottom of my pickled beets, I would use this lid to strain the “stuff” out. Mary in Cincinnati

  • I’d love a lid like this (was just googling for it actually) because I’d like to start sprouting.

  • Flour duster! I use an old tea ball to dust my counters with flour but it only holds a spoonful and needs to be refilled in the middle of a project half the time. This lid would be much better.

  • The first thing I thought of was a flour sifter – and so did many others too. Then I thought maybe for storing chicken broth in the fridge to solidify the fat before making gravy.
