Case of 4 x 1 litre (exact capacity = 1062ml) Weck Preserving Deco Jar.
Cases come complete with glass lid, natural rubber seal and 2 stainless steel clips. (Note that jars may be supplied with Rex lids rather than Weck branded ones. Rex brand is made in the Weck factory but does not have the strawberry logo on it)
Weck reusable glass jars are of the highest quality and contain NO BPA! (Bisphenol A). These jars are suitable for water bath only, the deco jars are not recommended for pressure canning or freezing.
The most versatile and beautiful preserving jar available today, with the added bonus of being oven compatible (Baking in the jar is not possible with Ball Mason or Fowlers Vacola)
Weck canning jars are made with thick glass to withstand boiling, sterilizing and processing over and over again. Glass lids preclude issues with rusting, and the tab on the replaceable rubber ring, when facing downwards, indicates clearly that the seal on the jar is intact.
The point of canning is to hermetically seal the outside world from the sterilized interior of the jar, preventing the food inside from spoiling. These jars are designed to make it easy to tell whether or not this all-important seal has been made.
Boiling the filled jars (also referred to as ‘processing’) and the cooling period directly afterward, creates a vacuum seal tight enough to keep invisible microbes from entering the jar. The strength of this seal alone is also what keeps the glass lids in place. After the jars have fully cooled, the stainless steel clamps are removed and you can check if the jars have sealed by lifting the lid. If it doesn’t come off, you know for sure the jar is sealed. If the jar didn’t seal properly, you can either re-process it, or refrigerate the jar and eat the contents within a couple of days.
All jars have wide openings for tidy, easy filling.
Weck jars come in round jars, tulip jars, deco jars, cylinder jars and juice jars.
Replacement rings, lids and clamps are also available.
