Rated 5 out of 5 by psioux A must-have accessory.
Both the small and large-mouth are must-haves. Some jars and sealers and you havewhole different machine. Great for storing salad ingredients, fruits, sauces. Terrific for small leftovers that one might use a couple of times. Easier to handle than bags. Certainly not cost effective for things that need to be stored for any length of time over a couple of weeks. I love it.

Was having trouble with the regular jar sealer until I came to the reviews.....I could not get the jars to seal (read...not sealing at all) until I read the tip about using the 2 lids...Works like a charm!!! The second lid comes off and the 1st remains sealed! I guess that it's a thickness thing...... Thanks to all! I am now in love with the jar sealers!

Just recd. 2 weeks ago. Have stored, Ritz crackers, Salteen crackers, Pretzels, Cheez-crackers . Also stored several types of dehydrated veggies. Works great first time, every time. Going to try some dry cereal next. No more half empty boxes with clothes pins left in cupboard. If we don't eat it all, it just takes 2 minutes to seal it back again.

You use the flat metal piece...it has the rubber seal on the underside...DO NOT use the metal ring until you have completed the sealing process..then you can replace the ring or leave off..your choice...I prefer to replace the metal ring..just in case the seal is displaced (kids or animals messing around in hiding places-like closets or under the bed)..so I make sure the ring is placed back on when the jar has a final seal.

yes, metal top, with small rubber sealing ring attached, that goes onto the jar itself
Yes you do use the "metal top" or lid. Put the lid on, then the jar sealer over it onto the jar. Attached with the vac. tube to the vac. (I use the "canister" setting on my FoodSaver machine.) When the machine goes off. Remove the Jar Sealer from the jar. The remaining "lid" is sealed. The ring can go on afterward but do not cinch it tightly. Just "finger tight" will do.
