CANNING LIDS - March, 2021 UPDATE
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS THERE STILL A CANNING LID SHORTAGE?
In most places, yes.
Covid-19 has created havoc everywhere and the canning community is no different. Even now the supply chain hasn't been able to catch up to demand.
WHY SO EXPENSIVE?
We're doing our best to keep our costs as low as possible.
We have been working very hard to find more lids for you, as we find more we may have to pay more, and that will lead to price increases.
We are buying what we can when we can find it. Prices and level of difficulty to acquire supplies varies, and so our prices will reflect that. We will keep our prices as fair as we can.
WHO IS BERNARDIN?
Bernardin is essentially Ball's Canadian cousin.
Ball, Bernardin and Kerr are all owned by Jarden Home Brands and are all manufactured in the USA. Bernardin are comparable to Ball lids in every way except for the design and that they are normally only sold in Canada. All regular mouth lids of any brand will fit regular mouth jars, and wide mouth lids will fit wide mouth jars. Do not buy Gem lids unless you know you have Gem jars. Find out more about lid sizes here. They are all really made in the USA, and are still BPA free.
DO YOU ACTUALLY HAVE THESE IN STOCK?
If you can add them to your cart and check out, we have them.
If we are already out of stock, the system will NOT let you add the lids to your cart.
It is possible that someone has the lids in their cart and will checkout before you. If this is the case, you won't be allowed to check out until you correct or remove the items that are no longer in stock.
As of right now, we do have all sizes in stock.
