Using lids that come with new jars.

I was just wondering if those who can use the lids that come with the new jars they buy?

Maybe I don't understand. But why wouldn't you use the lid that comes with a jar you have bought? What kind of jars are you talking about? Why buy something you aren't going to use?

I have bought boxes of jars befor that have had some lids sealed on to the jar. From either being stored in a how wearhouse or in the sun. I never use those. So was just wondering if there was a reason not to use them.

Ok what kind of jars are you talking about? New, unused Mason canning jars? Or with food in them like jelly?

I use the lids that come with the jars, and when I am done with whatever I canned, I buy new lids and use the old jars.

I have had some new jars, that when I opened the box and unscrewed the bands, the flats were 'sealed' to the jars. I think that is what MN Taxi is talking about.

I use them, and have never had a problem.
