Revolutionary for its time, John Kilner’s 2-piece seal system with glass lid and metal screw band, enabled the home preservation of fresh food and supported an explosion in creative cooking – from carrot jam to brandy cherries.
Now the large capacity jar has been re-issued to mark Kilner’s 175 years of British brand heritage. The glass jar allows for easy viewing of contents -- attractive for use on countertops, bookshelves, kitchen, bathroom, garage, and more.
Using glass jars removes the risk of chemical exposure to BPAs as well as other associated health risks, which can occur when storing food in plastic for prolonged periods of time. Glass is scratch resistant and does not retain stains or odours. The beautiful special edition jar also features a unique measuring feature embossed onto the back, enabling you to measure your preserves with ease.
Added to this, Kilner jars are the sustainable storage choice as they are both built to last and are recyclable.
