Rusted canning jar rings are a common problem, but now you can replace your old rusted bands with these higher quality stainless steel bands.
No more rust on your jars, on your drinking lids, or on your hands!
Stainless steel is not rust proof, but it is very rust resistant. These bands will not rust with normal use.
They are made of .4mm thick 18/8 304 grade stainless steel. They are almost identical in thickness and size to the standard bands that jars come with.
They look so similar to standard tinplate canning bands that it can be hard to tell them apart. One way to test is that 304 stainless steel is nonmagnetic but steel is magnetic. Another way is to wash them in the dishwasher a few times and see which bands get rusty.
