Default Where to find lids for 13.2 oz cans?

Normally when I'm storing leftover canned food in the fridge, I use those reusable plastic covers. All the ones I've been able to find seem to be for the 5.5 oz cans, though, or occasionally 3 oz.

I have several 5.5 oz covers, but they don't fit the 13.2 oz EVO cans.

Is there a place to buy lids made for 13.2 oz cans?

I've been covering them with plastic wrap but I'd like to find something more reusable.

Thanks!

HA! That's the problem! I ruined two of my covers trying to force them on the cans! I thought it was just me being too rough! Good question, lets see what other say.

A quick internet search found these. The reviews indicate they work on the 13.2 and the 5.5 but not the 3 oz.

I have these and they worked with bigger cans, as well as with 5.5oz cans

Thanks for the suggestion. The reviews seem so mixed, though, that I'm a bit confused about whether they actually work or not.

They're not that expensive anyway, so it's probably worth a try.

my 13.2 oz EVO cans are supposed to arrive today or tomorrow so I can check if they fit and let you know

for sure they worked with big Wellness cans and I am 99% positive they worked with big EVO cans. (i just dont remeber if I had them when ordered first batch of EVO or not )

Thanks, I'd appreciate if you could give it a try.

The thing I'm wondering about is whether the EVO cans are just a different size than other brands?

Because the reviews that mention 13.2 oz seem to suggest that they're interchangeable with 5.5 oz (but not with 3 oz,) whereas the size of the mouths of my EVO cans are a significantly different size than the mouths of the other cat food cans in my pantry. I don't see how something could fit both unless it was extremely stretchy.

I dont know how to explain it but they are molded in the way that they have two rims, inner and outer. for sure they fit two different sizes, outer rim goes for 5.5oz, and inner rim for bigger cans. I will check when EVO arrives if inner rim fits them. as i said for sure they fit bigger Wellness cans

I don't know if anyone has a Pet Supplies Plus near them, but if they do, they sell plastic lids that work for 13.2 oz-5oz cans. I have one and it works well, plus I work at Pet supplies Plus and everyone has said they work well

I broke the generic food covers trying to force them onto the EVO cans, but a quick check (now that you mention it) of the same sized Wellness cans and the pet food covers that I bought at Petsmart or Petco worked - yes they have a double inner rim. So the trick is to get pet food covers not generic food covers.
