Rated 1 out of 5 by lovetobake from Quality went down! Shame I have the same issue as described here by a number of people. During canning process several lids warped. I had to re-pasteurize all my preserves again. I've been canning for over 30 years and this is the first time I ran into such issue. I sent an email to customer service and got no response.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bye Brook from Lousy Lids I too have had an issue with the lids buckling...on closer inspection they seem to be a lot lesser quality than those of old. I have been canning and preserving for 30 years and have not had many issues but this lid buckling thing is a first! I will be looking for different lids in the future and I would like to know what is being done to correct the problem and if anyone has heard back from Ball.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Debstershopper from Not happy I believe the quality of the ball lids has gone down hill. I have canned for over 40 years, using both Kerr and Ball brand lids. This year when I made pickles, more than half of the Ball lids used buckled. The Kerr lids did not. I was worried that the buckled lids would not seal, but thankfully they did. I'm not confident that the seal is totally secure. Waiting to see in a few weeks what they look like.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 3boymom from New Lids I came on to check out the site to see if anyone else had any problems with the new lids. I was very surprised to see all the complaints. I thought I did something wrong, I have been canning for over 40 years and did a batch of pickles only 28 quarts, but 5 lids buckled. I have never had this happen before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarky 51 from Okay so far After canning about 100 quarts of fruits and vegetables I only had 2 lids fail. They sealed with a huge buckle. Even though they were sealed I don't trust them to stay that way, so I used those jars right away. I think the new lids feel cheaply made. The jury is still out on if the jars stay sealed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nightsmusic from Sure Tite Lids are Horrible! I just finished canning 12 quarts of sauerkraut using a new box of Ball Wide Mouth Quart jars. Out of the dozen I did, four did NOT seal thanks to the new lids. This is the first time I have ever had a problem with lids not sealing and I've been canning more years than I can count. The water bath was full of juice from the sauerkraut! I am beyond disappointed with these lids and will look for something else in the future.While the jars are still great, I can't afford to put all of that work, time, and expense into canning my own food if I have to throw half of it away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXCanningGal from New Ball Lids I have heard a lot of complaints on here as well as a canning page I belong to on Facebook so I was concerned about trying to can with any of the new Ball lids. I found a good sale on some cases of jars with the new lids and decided to give them a shot. So far, 4 cases of new lids and all have sealed. I don't see how the new lids could possibly be at fault for lids blowing off the top of jars, broken jars or buckled lids unless someone is putting them on too tight or too loose. Anyway, I've been happy so far with these new lids and will be getting more soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SeasideJess from defective I just got a box of wide-mouth lids and only 2 of the lids in the box were good. On the other 10 lids the button just stays down when you test it, instead of popping back up. I guess they are still usable so long as they pass the fingertip test (they don't easily lift off the jar) but what is the point of a 'safety button' if it doesn't actually tell you if the jar is sealed?
