Most Lids are available in Standard and Stainless Steel.
Standard lids are tin-plated with a lacquer coating, double-coated on the inside to food grade and single-coated elsewhere. Stainless Steel lids provide a ‘longer life’ alternative and should be used for all high acid preserves, including pineapple and pickles.
When preserving, lids are placed on the bottle on top of the preserving ring and secured with a clip. When first put on the bottle, the lid appears convex, which will change to concave after processing, indicating the vacuum seal has formed.

The Preserving Clip is an integral part of the preserving process, as it holds the lid in place during the process, whilst allowing air to be expelled from the bottle, creating a vacuum seal. Clips are only removed 12-18 hours following completion of preserving process, once vacuum seal is secured. Preserving Clips are made in Australia from electro-plated spring steel.

The Preserving Ring is the key to the sealing process and thus preserving success.
The ring provides an even, airtight seal enabling a vacuum, so that your preserves, may last for years. We strongly advise that the rings be used only once and should be disposed of after opening processed bottles. Re-use of rubber rings will hinder or prevent the sealing process, with potential loss of contents as a result.
Fowlers Preserving Rings are made from natural rubber and are packed in Australia.

Fowlers Preserving Wax is the perfect airtight sealing agent for jams, pickles, chutneys and relishes.
The airtight seal it creates ensures freshness and longevity, especially favoured for those preserves with a high vinegar content, such as pickles and chutneys.
When a longer storage time is envisaged for jam, preserving wax assists in eliminating crystallisation and discolouration due to oxidisation.
