Kilner jars have been produced for more than 150 years, in the UK. The original design includes a rubber seal to keep the contents fresh, as well as clip top lid that securely fastens and further protects the contents. As well as Kilner clip top jars, you can also buy screw top jars, called preserve jars. Although these jars were traditionally used for storing preserves, jams, chutneys, and other sauces, they have enjoyed a recent resurgence.
Now, as well as jars specifically designed for churning butter, for serving cool drinks, and for storing jams, the company also manufactures drinking glasses and Kilner spice jars. In fact, you can now also buy Kilner bottles and more. The jars are used by hobbyists to store buttons and other art and craft items, while the clear glass jars are also a simple, convenient, and attractive means of storing tea, coffee, flour, and other kitchen products. They are easy to use, reliably preserve their contents, and they look attractive in any kitchen. They can even be used in the shed or garage, craft room, or in the bedroom to create easy storage solutions.

About Kilner Jars
It is impossible to talk about preserve and storage jars without mentioning Kilner. The company was established in 1842 by John Kilner. The company initially produced plain glass jars and bottles, and towards the end of the 19th Century the clip top Kilner jar was invented. It was this patented design that really thrust the name Kilner into the spotlight.
Despite going into bankruptcy in the 20th Century, the company has undergone a revival in recent years. The company opened a new warehouse in the US in 2014 and won the Excellence in Housewares Icon Award in 2015.
Following this renewed success, the company launched the new food on the go range, which includes salad jars and other food jars that make it easy to transport food to work or to any other destination. The continued success of the business means that items like the Spiralizer, Coffee Grinder, and Fermentation Set have also been launched.
Kilner Spice Jars
Spice jars need to be air tight. They tend to reside in the kitchen, which is filled with moisture and condensation. Left in the open, the spices will clog up or lose its flavour and potency. By using an air tight jar, you can retain the flavour and aroma of the spices and herbs.
Kilner spice jars are airtight and convenient. They come in various sizes and styles, they come with screw top or clip top jars, and they are a better-looking alternative to the standard tubs that herbs come in. The great looking jars can also be used to create a focal design in the kitchen. Buy a variety of colours and even sizes, fill them with the herbs that you use regularly, and add them to the shelf in your kitchen.
Small Kilner jars make excellent spice jars because they're convenient, offer airtight storage, and they look great. Get your spice shelf in order today with ECookShop's glass jar stock.
Preserve jars are not only used to store preserves and jams, but they are also used in the process of making them. Kilner jars are ideal for preserves and jams, chillies, and other sauces. The Kilner preserve jars have a screw top, but you can also buy Kilner clip top jars that serve the same purpose. These patented jars have a rubber seal that helps to prevent air from getting in. Preserve jars are also a great way to pickle vegetables or to store fruit.
When buying Kilner jars, you should first decide on whether you want screw top or clip top jars. Then you will be able to choose from a variety of sizes and dimensions, including both square and round jars. You can also choose the colour or colours to create the kitchen design and focal point that you want from your jars.
Kilner preserve jars are often used as giftware. Hobbyists decorate the jar, fill it with a host of different items, and then present it to the recipient as an attractive birthday or other gift. In this case, you should choose the jar that best matches the items you'll place in it.
As well as individual jars, you can also buy dessert jar sets, that include teaspoons, a recipe booklet, dessert tags and ribbon to match, and 2 clip top jars; a great way to start making your own desserts that look and taste great.
Kilner Drinking Jars
Another very popular use for Kilner jars is as drinking jars. This popularity has also spurned a range of Kilner jars for UK buyers that can be used to create drinks like sloe gin, and that can be used for containing the drinks. Water serving bottles, sloe gin sets, and Kilner drinks making sets are some of the options available to you.
The drinks set includes drink top bottles, bottle tags, a recipe booklet, reusable straws, and bottle tags. The set makes a great gift, or you can create your own drinks for parties or any other occasion.
