They sell plastic lids next to the jars, right. are these safe for a pressure cooker? has anyone used them to make bwf cakes?

one piece and no rust.

i've been using plastic lids for at least 2 1/2 years and have never had a problem.

the only way they will melt is if the lids are up against the side walls of the cooker. i had a large load to pc one day and the last jar wouldn't stand up straight, so i leaned it over and the lid was up against the side of the pc. it melted a good bit. that was probably two years ago and i still use that lid.

tremor - right. the rust doesnt hurt anything, but it is a little messy at times and if you happen to slice your finger or hand on the side of a plastic lid, you won't need a tetanus shot.

The plastic lids work fine in a pressure cooker.  Most plastics won't melt at those low temps.  [Email]1h30m@20psi[/Email] doesn't harm them at all. They say "not for processing" because they don't provide the air-lock seal that the metal ones do. Metal sucks, get plastic :smile:
