I absolutely adore these canning jars! I have a large garden and can quite a bit so I buy these by the case every year. I have never, ever had a single Kerr jar break on me. I've never had a seal fail. These are the best jars I have ever used and I would never consider changing to an alternative brand. These are wonderfully heavy glass and feel sturdy in your hand. The lids and rings are sturdy as well and fit perfectly the first time and every time. The sixteen ounce size is perfect for so many things and is my go-to size for applesauce since one jar is the perfect portion for two people. I use these for so many things beyond canning as well. I use them to make salad dressing in, to store small amounts of juice, and to hold small bits of nuts and other food items to keep the humidity out during the summer. I really cannot imagine life without these wonderful and extremely versatile jars. I cannot recommend them highly enough, especially if you are a canner. Kerr will always be my first choice for canning jars.
