Reusable Canning Jar Lids - Update

 Gearing up for canning season, I came across this link promoting BPA free reusable canning lids.  This product has been around for quite a long time ... just wondering if you have heard about said lids?  Here's a link to the Tattler Reusable Canning Lids ... and the Homestead Revival blog that has a drawing to give some away.  I entered the drawing ... and am seriously thinking about making a purchase.  If you have experience with Tattler lids, leave a comment.  Thanks

Update:  Maria asked a good question about whether or not the rubber seals are reusable .. here's what the Tattler Faq/Testimonial part of their website says

Q:  Are the rubber gaskets reusable, and how long will they last?
A:  Yes, the rubber gaskets are reusable and will seal numerous times when used as directed.  When cared for properly, many years of use may be expected.  Testimonials from our satisfied customers report use of rubber rings for more than 20 years!

I was intrigued by this, and looked over the website, but another site says only the lids themselves are reusable, you need a new rubber seal each time, right? Not sure what a great savings that would be.

Maria ... I'm curious about the other website you found regarding reusing the seals .. haven't decided if these are worth the cost.
The site I found out about the reusable lids was interested in the them because they are BPA free ... something regular canning lids contain .. as well as most canned goods at the market.

Well, I can't find that site now, which is kind of silly. :) I did order some to try out.
