Preserve the flavors of summer in distinctive Kilner canning jars. The striking shape and embossed surface of these jars bring an extra dash of style to homemade jams, jellies, salsas and chutneys. They also make decorative countertop storage for herbs, spices and other dry goods. These top-quality glass jars have traditional two-piece lids — a vacuum seal disc and metal screw band — making them ideal for canning. These 8-1/2 oz. jars are slightly larger than half-pint jars.
Established in England in 1842, Kilner is renowned for their distinctive, high-quality glass bottles and jars. For over 150 years, households in Europe and throughout the world have chosen Kilner products for their homemade and home-canned foods. Filled with your own homemade jams, jellies, pickles, oils, vinegars and spirits, iconic Kilner bottles and jars make delightful and much-appreciated gifts.
Screw bands can be reused up to 10 times; use a fresh vacuum seal each time you use the jar for canning. Replacement screw bands and seals sold separately.

High Quality, Beautiful Product
from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
I purchased three dozen of these jars to give honey as gifts. Upon inspection after arrival, several of the jars had shattered in transit. Within days of calling Gardner's to advise of the need for better packing prep, they sent replacements making me whole. I could not be happier with this transaction or the product.
Good quality canning jars.

These look great and will be ideal for my home-canned jams and jellies that I give as gifts.

These are very pretty. They do NOT however work with USA ball, kerr etc. lids and bands. They are off by just a fraction, enough to not seal. The USA bands are too big for the jars. If you want to reuse, you'll have to find Kilner bands and lids.

Lovely vintage canning jars
These are lovely but quite expensive for regular canning.
Love these jars!
By Paula in Colorado
from Denver, CO
As another reviewer mentioned, it's true that the lids are not interchangeable with other brands. That is not an issue for me as I don't intend to preserve anything in these jars. Instead, I'm using them to serve condiments and other items. The design is unique and very pretty. I love them.
