no shit. and i've been using them myself. i had 3 jars of beans not seal on the batch before last. now i'm wondering if it was the fucking lids. now i'm getting really pissed. i hadn't even connected my own dots. i'm a nit.

so, can we take them back? do we start a viral campaign against ball lids? i'm email and call them at the very least. and i'll be checking every damned one of them from now on.rant

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?

THANK YOU, TinyGreen, for this WONDERFUL thread. bump bump , 5 stars, "Suggest Pin" and a GREENIE for you!!

PS, your jars of preserved food look WONDERFUL!!!!

The gold ball lids are still great. It is the silver ones that have given me hell. I just threw out another jar of pickles. You can test your seals, but I have noticed that even after I test them, I have to go back about a week later and make sure that they didn't pop.
