I was looking for something exactly like this just a few weeks ago and couldn't find anything like it! The only design I found printed the lid and band as one piece (making the print take very long and wasting filament) along with printing the screen super thick.

Only found out about this one through that Best of the Week (BOTW) list. I think you should put jar and Mason in either the title or tags so people looking for designs can find it easier (when I was looking, this wasn't uploaded at the time, so I don't know if your tags contain those or not).

Thanks for the advice, that's much appreciated. I've added 'Mason' and 'Jar' in the title and tags.

And in the UK we call them "Kilner" jars. Exactly what I'm looking for, thank you

What kind of filament would be food safe? Thank you.

PETG is food safe, plus it is a wonderful filament to print with. Very strong, low odor, and no warping.

I think you'll struggle to find food safe filament. And, if you did you'd probably make it non-food safe by putting through a 3d printer.

I use this strainer, made with standard PLA, but please don't take this as an indication that it's safe. I can't advise you whether or not it's going to create a problem with food safety.
