Wide mouth mason jar lids.
Mason jars are one of those simple items that are wonderful to have, but easy to take for granted. Named after American inventor John Landis Mason, Mason jars feature tight screw-on lids (usually with a two-piece design), glass construction, and an old-fashioned American aesthetic that hasn’t changed much since they were first patented in the 19th century.
I used to think mason jars were only for old people to hide tomatoes in. But now there are so many cool new accessories and lids for mason jars.
The iconic mason jar — better known as the Mason or Ball Jar – is the only cheap standardized storage solution I know of. There are, of course, fancier, more expensive cans, but buying enough of them to be truly useful is exorbitantly expensive, and with new designs, you run the risk that the company will stop making them after you’ve invested heavily. Weck, Fido, and Bernoulli jars, while classic and useful for specific purposes, are not completely standardized: you take the lid apart for cleaning and then wonder which jar the lid belongs to.
Accessories and special lids really bring new life and meaning to mason jars. Today I’m going to tell you about three such lids:
- Burp Lids Curing Kit. No more frustrating time-consuming unscrewing and tearing off the lids. Use an oxygen extraction pump to burp the can. Just place, pump, press, done!
- Mason Jar Lids Wide Mouth Plastic. Great for drinking cold or hot drinks on the go, as well as for secure storage of dry or wet foods with a special airtight seal.
- My Mason Makes Wide Mouth Lids. This kit includes almost everything you need to maximize your mason jars. Even our vacuum sealing system for the perfect jar preservative.
There are many other innovative accessories, including Cuppow (previously reviewed on Cool Tools), Kraut Kaps, ReCAP and Tattler lids. So far, none of them have proven indispensable, but they are all proof that the great mason jar continues to inspire.
What can mason jars be used for?
Usually, around $1 a piece (or 25 to 50 cents at thrift stores), tins are cheap enough to put together a collection. I have at least a dozen of each size in regular rotation in my kitchen, pantry and refrigerator, and I use them many times a day:
- I pull out a few 4 oz. jars in the morning and distribute my vitamins for the day.
- I pack lunch foods, including soup, tea, pudding, and nuts or seeds, in half-pint and half-pint jars, which are then shipped in an insulated lunch bag (available at your local thrift store).
- We use pint-size as drinking glasses, of course. At our wedding, we had an assortment of cans and colored felt-tip pens for guests to label. (Cool, I know.)
- My immersion blender fits snugly into a wide-mouth jar to make smoothies, mayonnaise, or whipped cream. Leftovers can be easily corked and stored.
- When I make sauerkraut or other anaerobic starters, I use a 4 oz. canning jar as a weight inside a wide-mouth or lidded jar to keep the vegetables under the brine.
Presumably, since the patent has long expired, the canner is fair game for all kinds of innovative accessories. I’ve already told you about my favorites above, but now it’s time to talk about them in more detail.

Get rid of frustrating, time-consuming, unwinding, and tearing eyelid burps. Use an oxygen extraction pump to burp the jar. Just place, pump, and press, and you’re done. These plastic wide mouth mason jar lids use waterless airlock valve technology. The airlock valve technology functions as a sealing vapor lock for the container. This allows carbon dioxide to escape without letting oxygen in. You don’t even need to remember when the batch started since each lid has date sensors built into it. The burp lids also minimize the chance of bud rot, since contaminants are difficult to grow in a vacuum.

This brand is for people who want to improve their brewing game and enjoy brewing, and have genuine pleasure in an honest and realistic approach to quality. While the standard mason jar lids have worked well for generations past, these versatile lids give the classic glass jar a new purpose
I use my wide Mason jar for cocktails, iced coffee, and food storage, but I was tired of the metal lids that I had to remove to drink and they rusted and corroded after extended use. These lids are completely airtight, and I like that the drinking spout lid screws on and off, so I don’t have to worry about it opening unexpectedly. They are very easy to clean with a dishwashing rag or brush, and they withstand heavy use.

Different lids for different purposes.
First of all, make sure that you are buying a lid for the right jar. Mason jars only have two types of neck diameters: the regular neck (70 mm) and the wide neck (82 mm). Note that the shape of the classic jar (with a regular neck) is square. Of course, with rounded corners. This makes it easier to transport and store the jars, and there is less chance that they will break during transport. In addition, the shape gives the Stonemason an elusive charm, in general, it is difficult to describe it in words – just hold such a jar, and you will understand everything yourself.
Secondly, the choice of lid depends on what you will be using the jar for. If you want to take more with you, like a beverage, then the Mason Jar Lids Wide Mouth Plastics is your choice. And if you often use the jar for canning, the Burp Lids Curing Kit will suit you much better.
Nowadays, they have started using the jar as smoothie glasses and other drinks. As mentioned above, there are special wide mouth mason jar lids with a hole for a straw (the holes are shaped like a daisy). I.e. breakfast, a light snack during the day, and even dinner, you can always take with you and comfortably located both in the office and on a bench in the park to have a snack.
