They are which is great for labels but if you are canning with them put up with the raised logo for a jar that isn't so likely to fail. These are great for dried things like Cookie mix and spices though.

Can we purchase one piece lids for this product if we do not want to use the two piece ones? I just prefer the one piece lids but these jars are nice and smooth,

Walmart sells a mainstays plastic one piece lid separately that fits on these jars. I have also used a 16 oz peanut butter jar lid, parmesan cheese lid, or Mrs' Richardson caramel/chocolate ice cream topping lids.

The white plastic lids are not for preserving, they are for the refrigerator or for dry goods like rice in the pantry (BTW, I find the Ball ones worth the extra money as the Mainstays version is not airtight). You can't get the one piece canning lids at Walmart but there are many sources online. Fillmore Container and Kitchen Krafts are two I know off the top of my head, but Google "one piece lids for mason jars" for more sources. They average about 35 cents each and are NOT reusable. Make sure to get the kind designed for high heat, not the ones marked as for "hot fill" or brief hot-water-bath canning since they do not seal as well. (Doesn't matter what Granny did, hot fill is no longer considered a safe canning method - we know a lot more about food safety now than we did 50-75 years ago.)

Walmart carries Mainstay plastic lids for the small mouth and large mouth canning jars. They appear to be the same as the Ball plastic lids, but half the price.

answer 1
No, they are not for use in the oven. Oven canning is no longer considered a safe canning method anyway, and this style jar isn't good for stuff like "cake in a jar", you really need a straight sided jar like a wide mouth pint. You can use the oven to keep heated jars warm while you're filling them - use the " warm" setting - but try to work as quickly as possible as the dry heat can crack empty jars.

The box does not say so I doubt it. I find the Mainstays lids very unreliable anyway, a lot of seal failures, so I just pitch the lids straight into the recycling bin and use Ball or Kerr lids, which are BPA free now.
