reCAP Mason Jar Lid Giveaway

April 24, 2012(updated on October 3, 2018)

Last fall, when I was in Austin, TX waiting for my sister to go into labor, someone sent me the link to a Kickstarter project that they thought I might be interested in. A woman named Karen Rzepecki had designed a mason jar lid with a spout so that she could easily pour things from canning jars without removing the lid.

I thought this was a brilliant idea and immediately signed up to help fund this idea into reality. I posted a link to the project on my Facebook page to help spread the word and soon enough, it was funded.

recap

After months of waiting, my very own reCAP lids arrived last week. They are just as promised – a mason jar cap with a flip-top pour spout. They are leak proof, easy to pour from and made out of BPA-free plastic.

Because I donated $40 to the campaign, I received 10 reCAPs. Though I’m a huge fan of these lids, that’s more than I need to have kicking around my apartment and so I’m sharing. I’m giving away five of these reCAPs to five lucky folks.

recap

And if you don’t want to take your chances on a giveaway, the reCAPs are now available for sale. They cost $6.99 a piece and shipping is free if you buy three or more. They’re currently only available in the regular mouth size, but I hear that they’re working on a wide mouth version, as well as lids with other utilities. I’ll let you all know if I hear anything more!

  3. Giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian readers.

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored giveaway. I paid for my reCAPs and just want to share.

  1. I would love one! I store most of my chopped nuts for baking in mason jars and this pour spout would be great!!!!!!

  2. I would use this for drinking out of my mason jar. It’s a great way to keep it from spilling and I could fit a straw through the hole if I wish, as well!

  3. Wow! These are so COOL!!!! I would use it for a water bottle, to keep smaller amounts of cereal and grains fresh in the pantry and easy to pour for my daughter to use too!!

  4. I am about to make some cooked tomato-vegetable juice and will freeze most of it. If I have a cap with a spout I could pour out the juice easily.

  5. I would definitely try it as a water bottle, provided it is leak proof. I would also use one for salad dressing, I always shake up my vinegrettes in 1/2 pint or pint jars.

  6. those look great! i’d use the lids for water, tea, salad dressings, soup… ANYTHING. what a great idea.

  7. I’d use it for homemade kombucha, salad dressing, and medicinal strength tea brewed by the quart. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. OMgosh! I would use it for my water, salad dressing, and my yogart smoothies for lunch. I love this idea.

  9. Very cool! I would use it with a jar of sesame seeds, ground flax seed, and oatmeal, which I love for breakfast.

  10. I would use a reCAP for salad dressing (I currently use a glass bottle, but a mason jar would be much easier to clean) or in place of a regular storage lid for elderflower syrup once it’s opened & in the fridge.

  11. Since I just learned that you can actually put the smaller-mouth canning jars on an Oster blender, I’d use this for my blended smoothies on-the-go. I’m so excited to find this product. I also discovered that parmesan cheese can lids fit the canning jars, but it’s not a water-tight fit. Perhaps the people who want the lids for nuts and dry goods might be able to use that tip, though.

  12. I think these would be great for moms who have to tote baby cereal or formula. I would like a couple for dressing and for my morning iced latte!

  13. I would love this!!!! I would use it for my fresh homemade iced tea! Make a pot of blueberry green tea while it’s hot add 2 squeezes of honey and let cool! Once cooled refrigerate. Serve over loads of ice!

  14. What a wonderful idea! I can think of so many things that this would be handy for. Please sign me up for the giveaway. Thank you!

  15. I have been looking for something like this for ages. I’d use it for maple syrup and honey and salad dressing.

  16. This lid is genius!! I’m picturing it used when serving coffee to guests. Use it to pour milk or half & half. Use it for pancake syrup…just about anything. The possibilities are endless! I think I need to dig my jars out of storage from my basement!

  17. So many uses, it’s hard to choose. I could really use it to store rice and make it easy to pour into the rice cup.

  18. I would be able to pour strawberry syrup out of the jar it was canned in, instead of transferring it to a squeeze bottle.

  19. Marisa – I use Mason Jars all the time. I think these lids would be great for salad dressing. Take care – Susan

  20. I’d use it for a water bottle as I hate drinking out of plastic anything.
    But I’m also sure I could find a 100 other things to use it for.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  21. Hmm…the better question might be how will I *not* use the reCap? For starters, I could use it as a water bottle and also as easy-pour fridge storage for all kinds of salad dressings and infused oils. It could also be used to hold homemade cleaning supplies or extra bath toiletries, not to mention it would be *great* for carrying limited amounts of liquid laundry detergent to and from apartment-building laundry rooms and laundromats. Since I use mason jars not only as glasses, but also as dry food storage and fridge food storage, there would literally be 50 uses and counting for this lid.

  22. I would use these caps for the pint jars I keep various spices in. I also would use one for the tea or juice that I take to work every day. What a great product!

  23. This would be ideal for making homemade salad dressings. Mix, shake, pour, and store. Great invention.

  24. I supported the project and I use mine for our 1/2 and 1/2, salad dressing (2), popcorn and cereal. LOVE them..can’t wait for the wide mouth version!

  25. I would use mine for all those times your jam/jelly “accidentally” becomes delicious syrup. This little guy would certainly making pouring the “syrup” onto my pancakes and waffles much easier!

  26. I would love to have these to help with my sourdough starters! These would be perfect to make it easy to stir up and pour/measure my starters!

  27. This is a great idea, it is surprising that it hasn’t been done before. It would great to use one of these to pour off the syrup from canned fruit when using the fruit for baking…my husband loves to drink the syrup or I use it as the liquid when making home made granola.

  28. What a great idea! I store most of my grains and cereals in mason jars-these lids would make life a bit easier 🙂

  29. I just inherited 22 boxes of mason jars from my DH’s grandmother, and this would come in really handy.

  30. I use white vinegar in the laundry and buy the super large bottles from costco. Transferring smaller amounts to mason jars and pouring using the recap would be a lot easier than struggling with the large bottle.
