Replacement gaskets for canisters/jars?

Barbara76137 Jan 30, 2012 07:14 PM

I store all my rice, grains, pasta, nuts, even some spices in glass canisters and jars. The rubber gaskets have gotten old and dried out, so does anyone know of a source for replacement ones?

    What brand do you have?

    Overstock.com has both the French and Italian:

      Have you looked at your local hardware store?

        I've bought them at a hardware store. You probably need to ask, but they should have them tucked away somewhere.

        I know that I've picked up replacement gaskets for bail-closure glass jars at the Container Store. We're lucky to have a retail store not that far away.
