This is EXTREMELY interesting! I pretty much stopped using "KERR" lids (and jars, most of which have come from friends with stuff in them, so one would naturally wash them and plan to re-use them) because I always seemed to have about 1/3 to 1/2 of whatever I canned to not seal. But I ALWAYS depended on BALL jars and lids.

So, what are we to do with the lids which don't "pop"? Can we take them back to the store? I doubt if they would take them back, and even if they did, the replacement box might be just as crappy! Lids are EXPENSIVE, and can't/shouldn't be used twice anyway (so one would consider them as a necessary cost of canning), but those lids in the video are BRAND NEW! What happened? Did they "outsource" their lid-making to CHINA for Pete's sake?
