Here are the top reasons why canning can go wrong:

1. Insufficient processing time for jars: It is crucial to ensure that jars are processed for the appropriate amount of time to guarantee proper preservation.

2. Improper tightening of bands: Over or under tightening the bands can lead to issues. With our lids, it is recommended to tighten more firmly for best results.

3. Incorrect canning methods or recipes: Using improper canning techniques or recipes can compromise the safety and quality of the preserved food.

4. Misalignment of lids on jars: It is important to center the lids properly on the jars to create a secure seal.

5. Jar selection: Be cautious when selecting jars, as some off brands may be slightly smaller. While they may appear to work fine initially, the difference in expansion between glass and metal bands during the canning process can cause the bands to pop off or become loose. To test this, heat bands separately and twist them tightly while hot with a lid in place on all off-brand canning jars. If any issues arise, it is advisable to discard those jars or repurpose them for other uses.
