At Ozfarmer Australia we find the wide mouth quart jars to be a very handy size and after regular mouth pints, we consider it to be the "must have" jar for preserving. They are perfect for summer stone fruit; halves or whole straight into the jar, as well as for pears and apples, preserved lemons, and much more. We prefer wide mouth quarts for our chunky soups and casseroles when we pressure can because not only is it easier to get the food into the jar, the clean up for messy foods is much easier if you can get your hand right into the jar. They are also an ideal size to make homemade yoghurt: incubate it in the jar and then pop a plastic storage lid on top to store in the fridge.
Ball bottles can be used wherever you might otherwise have used Fowlers Vacola bottles: they fit inside Fowlers Vacola stove top and electric units, as well as in the new Kensington Food Preserver. They can also be used in pressure canners, with the advantage that you can double stack them on top of each other as the lid is flat (you need to put in a rack or something flat if you are trying to stack Fowlers Vacola bottles due to the clips on top).
Aside from being a lot easier to use: all you have to do when preserving is make sure the top rim of the jar is clean and clear of food debris, place the flat lid on top of the jar and then screw on the band finger tight. The bottle is then ready for processing. After the food has cooled, you can check for a seal and you can store without the screw band which can then be reused for processing other jars. Some people prefer to leave the band on for aesthetic reasons. If you do this, it is advisable to remove the band, thoroughly clean around the bottle and then replace the band to reduce the chance of corrosion.
Replacement lids with the inbuilt seal cost about the same as a replacement packet of Fowlers Vacola seals so in the long run, these are very cost effective and so easy to use.
