    There are some available.

    The description in their Fall 09 catalog also says that they work well
    for waterbath canning.

    Fortunately the two-piece lids are cheaper if you already have the
    rings. I suspect most of us still have a lot of rings.

    Stopped by the local thrift store today and bought two dozen pint jars
    for a dime apiece, and two boxes of unopened lids for a quarter apiece.
    Just as I walked in they were putting them on display so I snapped them
    all up. Lid boxes look like the latest Ball lids so I'm hoping they're
    still good.

    I'll bet there's not many takers at $4.95 a dozen + shipping.
    We'll stick to snap lids and rings.
    $4.95 US dollars will buy me 5 dozen snap lids with enough left over
    for a chocolate bar ;-).

    I agree. And since I paid less than a dollar a dozen for the lids I'm
    currently using and I have so many rings like George says, there's no way
    I'm buying those. Also, can someone point me to where it says they're
    suitable for water-bath canning? The description I see says they're good
    for FREEZING jam or craft products. Says they're used by commercial
    canners, but that's not us.

    Barb, which email addy did you use? Hopefully not the one in the header
    'cause that's absolutely bogus and doesn't exist.

    Use my yahoo one, which is inkstndpsyche <invalid>@yahoo<invalid>.com.

    Just remove the invalids and it will work.

    As I said in my original post, the information about waterbath canning
    is in their Fall 2009 catalog. I am on their mailing list.

    I've used the white ones, they work. I used a gift certificate to buy
    them. Although, I will admit that when I did use them I was a little
    skeptical that I would know for sure that they sealed properly. I've
    also used the gold ones with the little boy fishing (???) on them.
    Can't remember the name. They worked as well with the same above
    apprehension. I kind of prefer the lid/ring combination as I know if
    it sealed in the end or not right away.

    I have also used the Italian jars with the one piece lids. (Bormioli
    Rocco Quattro Stagioni) Got 'em off Amazon--again, using a gift
    certificate. (Purchased a book too so I got free shipping for $25+
    order.) They were the little 5 ounce ones with the odd-sized lid.
    The price was very low, $3.15 for a set of 4 with the lids--bought 6
    sets as that was all they had in stock. Right after my order arrived,
    I noticed the price went up--drastically. Now they are $9.50/set so,
    I guess it was either a pricing error or they were trying to blow-out
    old stock??? They worked just fine, all of the ones I've used sealed
    up great. I have purchased replacement lids at the container store
    ($1.29 for 3) so, when I run out, (or happen to be in Houston and can
    buy more) I will use them for herbs/spices.
