Cheap compared to Italian
I'm very disappointed that they replaced the decent Italian Jars with these cheap Chinese ones. Very poor quailty, please get Kilner or Fido Italian Jars back in stock.
These are, as others have said, storage jars rathe
These are, as others have said, storage jars rather than preserving jars. I hadn't realised this, made some strawberry jam last summer, stored it in a cool cupboard and within a week or so it had developed mould. At the very least, the product description should state that this is NOT suitable for preserving.
Not fit for purpose
I too bought these to make preserves in, and the seal is not airtight, so no use
Good quality, good price.
I think these jars are excellent quality for the price. The (not very efficient) lid seals can be simply replaced with Kilner Standard replacement seals to make them airtight/leakproof. This size holds 500ml.
Not air/liquid tight
Bought these to make preserved lemons in. The jars have to be turned everyday. First turn upside down and they both leak. So not a water/air tight seal and therefore no use to me. Cheap, but a waste of money as not fit for purpose.
