"I looked for a Mason jar lid that would let me shake, pour, and store all from the jar. I couldn’t find one, so I thought, ‘I can make that.'"
It all started with salad dressing.
Tired of messes and rusty lids, Karen was looking for a solution to shake, pour, and store homemade dressings directly from a Mason jar. When she couldn’t find one, she invented The Original reCAP. The Original reCAP Pour gave rise to a new company, where Karen and the team live and breathe all things Mason jars.
Our passion for a better world put the “re” in reCAP – Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle.
Inspired by a personal goal of zero-waste, Karen was passionate about bringing reCAP to life—in the hopes the cap would make Mason jars more useful and have a positive environmental impact. The best way to reduce waste is not to create it in the first place.
American-Made & Erie-Strong
Raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, Karen’s vision for reCAP is to keep it local and strengthen her hometown community. Not just Made in the USA, reCAP’s entire supply chain is within a 100-mile radius.

Erie PA USA – Our Mason jar lids are made start to finish from design, manufacture and fulfillment!
The reCAP Mason jar lids are specifically designed to be BPA/BPS-free, freezer-proof and dishwasher safe. Made of FDA-approved BPA/BPS-free number “5” Polypropylene plastic. While it is not the organically-derived (i.e. plant/bio-based) plastic typically used in disposable products, it is recommended as the safest choice for food and beverages.
reCAP® Mason jar lids fit regular mouth Mason Jars (2.5" or 70mm continuous thread) and wide mouth Mason Jars (3" or 86mm continuous thread). Not all jars that have "Mason" embossed on them are the standard size or screw thread. Also be mindful, jar volume does not determine the mouth size of the jar.
The wide-mouth POUR Mason jar lid has a quick release flipper. It is easy to remove and replace.
We believe in giving back and we're passionate to make the world a better place. As part of our company planning process we make yearly commitments to specific organizations. Due to the large number of requests for fundraising donations, we will not be able to support additional inquiries. We applaud your interest in our charitable efforts!
Many of our fans and customers use the FLIP with the ACCESSORIES for sprouting. The smaller screen hole is .125" and the larger screen hole is .300".
Yes, reCAP® Mason jar lids have patent No. US D682,612 S as well as patents pending.

Yes! The Classico red sauce and Riserva are packaged in Mason jars, however you cannot use these jars for canning. Other Classico jars are not Mason jars, even though it is embossed on the jar.
The stopper is made from natural latex rubber. The one-way valve is made from polypropylene. Both are FDA approved and made in the USA
The waterless airlock is a one-way valve. It allows gases or liquids to flow in only one direction. The purpose of the airlock is to allow carbon dioxide gas to flow out of the jar and prevent oxygen (or anything else) from flowing into the jar.
We recommend cleaning the airlock by hand with mild soap. Since it’s a one-way valve, water will only flow in the direction of the arrow on the airlock. Make sure to run water through the airlock to get all the soap out.
Unlike most other fermentation products, reCAP includes a low-profile, waterless airlock. Some of the benefits are:
1. No need to monitor the water level.
2. The 3-piece airlock is made from a brittle plastic that can easily break. The reCAP fermenter is almost indestructible.
3. The reCAP fermenter is much easier to clean.
4. The reCAP fermenter is a much lower profile, therefore it better fits on shelves.
In addition, there are many uses for a waterless airlock! It can be used to store your coffee to keep fresh, brew small batches of beer, and more.
The fermenters come unassembled so that you can easily wash the pieces prior to your first use! When assembling look for the small arrow and have it point up.

First make sure that there is a gasket inside and it is lying flat. Then make sure the lid is threaded straight on the jar (not askew) and tighten. Double check the fit is tight! Some Mason jars may not successfully seal due to severe variations. Older Mason jars especially may have been altered or are non-standard. Since these will not be 100% leak-proof on every jar variation, keep in mind that they are also great for dried goods and pantry items as well!
No, reCAP® Mason jar lids and most plastic are not to be used in canning or microwaving.
Yes. While it is not recommended to heat plastic, reCAP® POUR Mason jar lids can be washed on the top rack dishwashers. Hand-washing with a mild soap is preferred and recommended to extend the lid’s life.
Independent Lab testing show that the lids are stain resistant.
Yes, gaskets are easy to clean by hand or in the top rack of a dishwasher. We also sell replacement gaskets if needed.Purchase Replacement Gaskets
Sometimes lids can be a little stubborn, try using the pour spout as leverage with your thumb and opening the flip lid to reduce potential vacuum pressure. If it's still a little tricky, fill the jar with hot water and let it sit upside down for a minute before trying to remove the lid. New gaskets can also be purchased if the gaskets are worn.
If the flipper lid is difficult to close or open, try adding a drop of cooking oil on your finger-tip and lubricating around the edge/sides of the closure. You should only have to do this one time, and the problem will be resolved, even after washing the cap.
In a lab test it was determined that our caps are dishwasher safe and can withstand effects of extreme temperature change of 0°F and 120°F.
