Proper Use & Care

  • There should be no metal utensils, glass straws or other abrasive materials in jars, especially if planning to use jars for canning.
  • Always inspect for nicks or cracks and wash jars prior to use.
  • Do not use jars for canning or food storage after using for alternative use.
  • No hot liquids or foods in jars without heating jars prior.
  • Be mindful of jar temperature when filled with hot liquids or foods. Use a jar lifter to handle the hot jars and do not place the hot jars down on cold, hard surfaces.
  • Make sure to use only freezer-safe jars for freezing. Straight or tapered jars can be used for freezing. Jars with shoulders should not be used for freezing.
  • Jars should not be used in the microwave or oven.

Proper Use & Care

  • Check canning lids and bands for proper functioning.
  • Wash lids and bands with warm, soapy water prior to canning.
  • Handwash bands for future use and dry thoroughly to prevent rusting.
  • When canning, it is crucial to use NEW lids each time because undersides of the lids have a special softened sealing compound that is made to mold and seal to the jar. Once opened, it cannot reliably re-seal safely again onto another jar because it has already been molded to the previous jar.
  • The underside of lids should not have scratches, or uneven or incomplete sealing compound as this may prevent sealing.
  • Bands should fit on all jars for canning.
