ReCAP lids are versatile, environmentally-friendly and make a multitude of little kitchen jobs easier. Want to try them for yourself? Enter today’s giveaway to win ReCAP jar lids, details below…
When I find a helpful kitchen gadget, I really like to share it with friends (that means you guys)! The folks at ReCAP sent me a couple of their handy jar lids to try at home and I was amazed at how many ways I found to use them. They are spill-proof and perfect for things you need to shake, pour or store.
I happen to have lots of canning jars around since I do some home canning each year, and frankly, having the jars sitting empty for months after we’ve consumed their contents has always seemed kind of waste to me. Why not use the jars in some other way? Besides using an empty canning jar as an informal vase for a casual summer boquet, I’ve used them to store things like:
- water in the fridge
- rice and other grains
- specialty sugars
- non-edible things like miscellaneous screws/washers/nuts & bolts
- craft supplies like beads and buttons
Sometimes the filled jars can even be rather decorative—bonus! When I got my hands on some of these ReCAP lids, it opened up some new uses for empty canning jars because with these lids it’s easier to pour directly from the jars, and the lids can be flipped closed. Plus, using the glass mason jars eliminates needing to store or cover so many things with plastic, so it’s environmentally-friendly as well (always a good thing)!
- Mixing up a protein shake
- Storing left over pancake batter
- Mixing up sauces and dressings
- Storing leftover pasta sauce and soup
- Pouring home-canned foods like salsa right from the jar
Karen Rzepecki, the founder of ReCAP got the idea for the lids when she needed to shake & pour salad dressing from a mason jar. Her idea received a design award from InnovationErie., and that led to the production of ReCAP lids in Erie, PA. The lids are BPA-free and made from recycled plastic, and are also made for wide-mouth jars if that’s what you have on hand. You can buy ReCAPs online either singly or in a three-pack. Or even better, you can win a three-pack for yourself!
