Great for first time jamming
I just started making jam. Doesn't want to invest in a lot of equipments. These smaller size jar fits perfectly in my current stock pot. Especially after the sealing process, the jars are super hot, because of the size, it is not heavy for regular tone I have and just the right size to pickup. Best part of all, it has straight opening, my kid does not have problem to get the jam out. Love to use these jars to make jam.
a verry atractive and very usefull object
We are a very local producer of ice cream and sorbet, made with natural ingredients. we have produced a limited amount 8 oz masonjars with special blend and flavour. It is a succesfull item for us and we want to know when this item will be availabel. we cannot find 1 jar in the market.
These jars are fantastic!! My granddaughter want her outdoor wedding reception to be whimsical and fun!!! We will be serving fresh ice cold lemonade in them!! After doing some research, Walmart offered the best price!! You can't go wrong with these jars no matter how you use them! They are perfect!
Lids look used they are so tight on the jars
The jars are well made and strong, the band's don't rust right away. However, the lids are so attached to the jars that I almost couldn't get them off with my fingers. They look used and 5 out of the dozen didn't seal. I called KERR about this because they're KERR JARS. Not Wal-Mart's fault at all!! Im waiting to hear what they will do. They are a very fair company and in my experience will buy me new lids for all four cases I bought. MY ISSUE is that this even happens. If the lids were put on upside down under the band this wouldn't happen.
I purchased 4 cases of these jars. Have used 3 cases so far and out of the 3 I've had 5 unacceptable lids. The lids are bent along the edge of the rim. They are bent enough that they don't seal and ruin the contents of the jars because of water seeping in! I have pics of 3 of them, the other 2 I threw out already. One of them is really bad, as if someone tried prying the lid off of something before it was packaged up. I have never had this problem with other jars. I believe these are defective ones and that's why the price is lower. I am very disappointed in this purchase and think they should make this right!
