Kerr canning jars

I have used this product many times and am always happy with it. The shipment was fast and packaging was perfect. Will buy this product from Walmart.com again.

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.

Will be buying more.

Use for canning. Did not have to worry about damage as you packed the jars extremely well.

I will purchase again!

We use these to make Jam & Jelly for our Girl Scout Troop. Price and quality cant be beat!

very good

I ordered the jars and they came early, wich was very nice

Hard to find

Canning jars hard to find - just what we needed.

Great for preserves

This size is perfect for make jams and jelly without having to make larger size jars. Seal great and easy to sterilize. Only thing I noticed was an odd smell before I washed them but it went away with soap and water. Definitely will buy again.

Great Value

Bought these jars for ice cream sundaes for a graduation party. They are the perfect size, arrived as scheduled. No complaints I would purchase again.
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!

4. Yes, there is a lot of room for labeling. The raised logo says "Kerr" with "Self-Sealing" under that. Then "Mason" at the bottom. This takes up about 2 1/2". Leaving you with about 5 1/2" for labeling. They also make: a) quilted design (Ball or Kerr) and b) harvest logo with measurements (Ball).
