Welcome to the home canning system. Home canning has become a very popular and healthy way to preserve foods, especially when produce is home-grown, given to you, or available at a farm market in your area. Here is an economical as well as rewarding experience. Some of the features of this jars as: Wide easy to fill jars, glass lids that will not rust, seals that are easy to check at a glance, easy open jars (no can opener needed), easy stack jars for convenient - space saving storage, wide openings making for easy cleanup, glass is microwave safe and attractive, fun, decorative shapes nice enough for table use. Solidly made canning jars with glass lids! No more rusty, plastic lined lids. Home canning is a satisfying and economical way to preserve food for long term use, so if you love to make dill pickles, blueberry jam, mango chutney, or any other homemade harvest delight, these plastic-free jars are for you. German-made Weck jars are formed from thick, hardy glass and made to withstand boiling, sterilizing and indefinite repeated use. The glass lids fit snugly on the jar with a natural rubber ring creating a hermetic seal. The lid is held in place with two stainless steel spring clamps, adjusted for permanent spring action even with continual use. The system design is ingenious. When the seal on the jar is intact and airtight, the tab on the rubber ring will face downwards. The clamps can then be removed and reused. The jars are stackable for easy storage. And to release the vacuum created by the seal, simply pull on the rubber seal tab until you hear a whizzing or hissing sound of air moving quickly. The lid can then be easily removed. Each jar comes with a glass jar and glass lid, a 100% natural rubber seal, and two stainless steel spring clamps. The jars all have wide openings for clean, easy filling and serving. They are microwave safe (without the clamps and seals!). BPA-free, phthalate free, PVC-free, lead-free. Recyclable. Note: If you are concerned about the possibility of lead in Weck glass products please note that we have conducted leach testing with a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Information Act-accredited laboratory and no lead was detected.
