I just bought a pressure canner. I'm seeking BPA free jars/lids. I'm looking at the Weck jars. Has anyone pressure canned with them?

 

I'm also looking, as a second option, at the 4ever or the tattler lids. Anyone use either of those?

 

Are there any other options I've missed for BPA free canning?

 

Thanks.

I had some emails with Weck and they said they haven't been tested for pressure canning in the United States. I guess Europe doesn't use pressure canners, just water baths. 

 

I did find a Canadian websites that tells how to use the Weck jars in pressure canning. I'm thinking the difference is liability law. http://www.weckcanada.ca/?page=shop/disp&pid=faq
