Things may come to that, but "made in china" is something that I will try to avoid for preserving my food. Kind of like the hellmart brand jars. They work for freezer jam, but I try not to use them otherwise.
I feel that what I have paid for the Tattler lids is reasonable, but if there is another product that works, I am all for it. My personal way of doing it is to pay more for made in the USA, and support a mom and pop business. In the end, I just want a quality product at a fair price, that will do its job.
