    I love the variety of jars you have! I’d use the 8oz. jars:

    http://www.fillmorecontainer.com/8-oz-Economy-Jars-58-Lug-P3C7.aspx

    And I’d fill them with some fruit chutney that I’ve been dying to make since last year. Or maybe some vanilla bean pear-sauce.

    And I really like the black lids!

    I would love some of the widemouth 64 ounce jars. I would use them to store dry goods in. We have recently moved to SE Texas, and it is very humid here. These jars would help protect our food from the humidity.

    I love the idea of making jams and jellies like my grandmother used to. Unfortunately all her caning accessories were thrown away after she passed away. These little 4 oz tapered jars are so cute and perfect for making various treats for myself and for gifts. Pairing a cute top like the antique gold daisy lid keeps it cute and simple. Whether I win or not, I will be needing these items for my pantry!

    Those 8 oz square mason jars are classic awesomeness. I love jam. Plum jam, cherry jam, apricot jam and so many more. That is what most of my jars get used for because there cannot be too much of it.

    I would so like to win the 8 oz square mason jars from your site! I love all of the sizes of this jar but I can’t find anything like the 8 oz one that I like in the stores. I can see it filling gift baskets this holiday season. Thanks for a great site, I’ll be back!

    I’d love the 8-oz sauce bottles, with black plastic lids because I reached a personal best and canned about 20 gallons of tomato sauce, about half flavored and half plain. It left me with a couple gallons of super-concentrated tomato juice that is currently in the freezer because I’ve run out of jars! Shortly, I’ll be roasting and smoking chiles and garlic and hope to turn all of it into a signature BBQ sauce to name after my son, Fierce Henry’s Hot Hottiness, or something similar. I own a baking company called Sweet Henry’s and now that he’s eight, he’s been lobbying hard for something to mitigate the reputation the “Sweet” gives him. He could give bottles to all his friends and hold his head high again as the sweetest AND fiercest young man in the ‘hood!

    I love the 4oz. tapered jars. They are just the correct size for making small batches of jelly or jam. I also like them for putting spices and herbs in; they would look so neat and organized on my Lazy Susan.
    For those with babies, this would be a good size for homemade baby food or leftovers for baby. Hoping so someday have a grandchild so that I can use them for that purpose.

    I’d love to get my hands on some of the little 4 oz jars. They’re perfect for small batches or small gifts. At this time of year, I’m starting to plan Christmas presents. So, if I win, a whole bunch of people are getting homemade presents this year (probably apple butter).

    I like the 8 oz Elite Ball Wide Mouth jars. I think the jam I make would look beautiful in those jars. The wide mouth encourages you to sample the jam by the spoonful in addition to putting it on toast.

    For the first time ever, I have enough rose hips to try out several recipes. I would love the 16 oz. straight sided jars to put up Rose hip applesauce and then make some rose hip jelly using the 4 oz straight sided jars. The color would show off beautifully & may even be good enough for Christmas gifts for all my foodie friends!

    I’d love to have 12 oz jars. I am still not sure about the differences in economy jars, vs. CT vs Lug. I would love to have them to preserve food, jams, fruits. I usually do half pints, and sometimes pints. This size intrigues me!

      Georgann,

      Thanks for your question about economy, Lug and CT. Hopefully the following will clarify the difference for you.

      Economy is used by several glass container manufacturers to designate the most cost-effective jar in a particular size. Generally it is the jar mould that runs more often and thereby more efficiently than other moulds. They are usually the simplest of design and shape to allow for the most versatile applications.

      For information about the difference between a Lug and CT, checkout our FAQ page here.

    12 oz Vinaigrette Bottles with Gold Metal Plastisol. I was so excited to learn and make some really amazing purple Basil vinegar this year and a peachy, pink oregano vinegar as well. But alas they are sitting in large mason jars and don’t look as pretty as they would in a real vinaigrette bottle.

    The jars: 8 oz Tapered Jars 70G CT
    The lids: G70 CT Gold Button Plastisol
    I’d use them for jam. I grow a lot of fruits and always need more jars. This year there was a lot of strawberries. Next year I’m hoping for enough blueberries and raspberries to make jam.

    We have a small household, and I use a lot of pint jars, both for our own use, and for gifts. I love the look of your square mason jars – they have a vintage aura but a modern and simple shape. I think they would look spectacular with the silver two-piece lids. I like jars that have mouths as wide as the sides – that shape makes it easier to access the contents and to clean the jars. My Meyer Lemon tree is getting close to being ready for harvest, so I will probably use a few for Meyer Lemon Curd and Meyer Lemon Marmalade. These are also the perfect size for fig preserves.

  45. Posted October 1, 2012 at 1:49 pm | Permalink

    I love the four-ounce hexagon jars!!! I like giving away small amounts of many different flavors of jam as a gift (housewarming, hostess, whatever) and this size of jar is prohibitively expensive in stores where I live. I’ll definitely be ordering some soon!

    I’ve been looking on the web for some time now trying to find the prefect container. I’m starting my own business of a line of natural sugar scrubs. While looking on your site I found the 12oz straight sided with the black 82lug plastisol lid which are perfect for what I need. I fell in love with the hex jars but needed a bigger size and your company sells black lids for the size container I’m looking for. I’ve never started my own business and I’m looking for quality goods. I love the glass over plastic jars, I feel it presents its self better. My sugar scrubs would look adorable in these jars especially after they’ve been dolled up a bit. My sugar scrubs will use all natural ingredients for healthy skin and those with sensitive. A variety of face, body, lip, and feet. This would mean a great start for my business but regardless I know I’ll be getting my jars from here.

    I’d love the 4-ounce smooth-sided jars, to fill with brown sugar cardamom pear butter! They are the perfect size for gifting jams, as I do every Christmas. It’s fun to be able to give people a variety pack of small jars in different flavors. Making homemade gifts will be extra important for me this year, since I’m being laid off on November 30…sigh.

    It’s so tough choosing just one! I’ve been eying the 12 ounce quilted jam jars and the Ball 24 ounce wide mouth jars for freezing things like soup or lasagna (8 ounces isn’t quite enough, 16 ounces is too much, and 24 ounce jars would be great for freezing two servings).

    But I think I would be most excited to win a set of 32 ounce regular mouth Ball jars (http://www.fillmorecontainer.com/Ball-Regular-Mouth-32-oz-P182.aspx).

    I do a lot of baking (some of which must be gluten free), so I have at least 12 different kinds of flours in my pantry, not counting all the other grains, beans, pasta, etc., that end up in various bags, always at risk of spilling or cross-contaminating each other. It’s impossible to get a quick inventory of what/how much I have. I recently transferred some of the flours that I use most frequently from whatever bag they came in to 32-ounce regular mouth Mason jars. Switching to jars has made things so much easier! They stay upright, clean, and organized in the cupboard, and it’s really easy to see what’s in each one. The volume markings on the side are really handy for helping me figure out when to go buy more flour. I label each jar with the tare weight and PLU (for buying in bulk) so when I run out, I just toss the empty jar in my grocery bags to take with me on my next shopping trip. So anyway, with a new set of 32 ounce jars, I’d finish organizing all the rest of my baking supplies and grains into jars.

    As for lids: What size jars do these pour/sift lids fit? (http://www.fillmorecontainer.com/48-CT-Plastic-Black-PourSift-Cap-P230.aspx) I know the Ball jars come with lids and bands, but if these are the right size, they would be so useful for measuring out flour or rice.

      The current pour/sift lids fit this jar – primarily used for spices, confectioners sprinkles, and crafters like them for glitter. We’re sourcing larger dispensing lids that would fit regular-mouth jars.

    If I were the winner, I’d want the 4oz smooth side jars. This summer a co-worker brought in a box of mixed fruit that was more than we could eat during the day. I got permission to take it home and made jam. I brought back 20 4oz jars of Plum-Pluot jam and was instantly popular. Next I’d like to bring in apple jelly (with apples from my trees). I might hold back 1-2 jars to make pickled ginger for my daughter who is away at college…

    http://www.fillmorecontainer.com/775-oz-Straight-Sided-Jars-70-Lug-P102C20.aspx

    Seems like a very attractive vessel for some jalapeno jelly that I love making and giving as gifts (heck, I’ll even mail YOU one)!

    Either way, I’m super thrilled to have found your site and will spread the word!

    Cheers!

    I love the look of the 9 oz. Hexagon jars! They would be unique for personal gift-giving since they are a more contemporary look than the “standard” canning jar. Your product line is so extensive and wonderful it was hard to choose only one favorite for this contest. :-)

    I really like the 8 oz. Square Mason jars! With the Rustic Bronze Daisy Pulp/Poly lids they would be ideal for bright winter jam like Pomegranate jelly or Meyer Lemon marmalade!

    I love all the jars, but I really like the look of the 8 oz square mason jars (item B08-03). I have a good amount of fall fruit to can, and these are a great size for fruit. Fig chutney is at the top of my list!

    OMG! How can a person choose? i like the 8oz. square jars, since i don’t have any of those and have never seen them before. but being practical and a heavy homemade gift giver, i need to stick to the 4 oz in any shape for my jams, mustards, mixes etc.

    What a great selection of containers! While I love the large jars for dry goods I LOVE the 12 oz. sauce bottles! We are attempting to eat unprocessed foods for the month of October and I went to grab hot sauce last night and was shocked at the ingredients! I am on the hunt to make a great homemade hot sauce and what a great container to put it in for myself and as holiday gifts! Thank you!

    The hexagonal jars are so cool! But do they work with standard lids/rings?

      Posted October 3, 2012 at 12:47 am | Permalink

      Hello Jessica,
      These cute hex jars are lug jars, which require lug style lids. You can still can in them, but not with a 2-piece lid. If you click on the jar, the lids that fit it should be displayed along the right-hand side of your screen. Check out the FAQ for more details on the differences–http://www.fillmorecontainer.com/FAQ.aspx
      or feel free to give us a call…1-866-345-5527…if you feel like you need to talk through it.

    I just started canning last fall, but it has officially become an obsession. I am already planning who will be blessed by some of my bounty at Christmastime! I am excited to find the 8 oz tapered jars on WITHOUT EMBOSSING on your site because they will be so much easier to label! You have lots of great supplies here and I’ll be placing an order soon. I’m also curious to try the Plastisol lids :-)

    After making jam for the first time last year, I really got serious this year. Blueberry preserves, spaghetti sauce, seasoned tomatoes, peaches, spiced peaches, peach chutney, hot pepper rings, dill pickles, corn relish, watermelon rind pickles, 3-bean salad, lavender jelly- the list goes on. The orange plum preserves in the Ball canning book are wonderful, and I’d love some 8oz Ball quilted crystal jars to make Christmas gifts of plum jam for my family. I’m off work next week, and am planning to use some of that time to can spiced apples, applesauce, chutney, and pears.

    The 8oz square Mason jar is sooo darling – and the perfect size: just enough for a couple to share, mail to friends & great for a hostess gift. We had a wonderful fruit season over the lest few months and I made Balsamic Bing Cherry Preserves, Rose Cardamom Apricot Preserves, Rosemary Peach Jam… and the tomatoes are coming in late this year so next up – Tomato Plum Preserves (OMG) and Tomato Basil Jam! SO grateful to have found your site – I’ve been piecemeal buying jars at the grocery store but those Mason Jars are exactly what I’ve been seeking! Have never used button lids since I learned to can with my mom as a little kid so I’m an old school lid & band girl :) Many thanks!

    Every Christmas I send out packages of homemade cookies and jam in memory of my sister in law Beth who was electrocuted in 2003. She sent the most amazing assortment of homemade goodies to relatives for years. I am keeping up the tradition and will be publishing a family cookbook in her memory. This year I made over 150 4 and 8 oz jars of jam and am counting. Still pear apple and cranberry to go. And the pomegranites just hit the market. I am hoping to get my master canner certificate next spring. Would like the 70G. Always looking for new items. So glad to find your site. You will be hearing from me!

    http://www.fillmorecontainer.com/8-oz-Square-Mason-Jars-P103C20.aspx
    for putting up jams, jellies and for gift giving! Big enough to get a nice portion but not so big it will go bad before you use it. Plus there are some new things I want to try … pepper jam, chutneys and a whole assortment of pickles … how I miss homemade pickles! And I saw some jars that are just begging for tomato sauce, too!

  200. Posted October 4, 2012 at 1:43 am | Permalink

    We’ve gotten into making fancy liqueurs and mixers. While I will be ordering a couple cases of the woozy bottles soon so we can bottle these as gifts this holiday season, the half-gallon jars would be good for the preparation.

    Normally, over the course of the year, we can do a batch or two and let them steep (they take 4-6 weeks to soak out all the yummy goodness). Now that we’re getting close to the holidays, we’re having to do more batches concurrently. While there aren’t as many jars to a case of these (http://www.fillmorecontainer.com/64-oz-Widemouth-Jars-110-CT-P32C20.aspx) as in a smaller size case, these are the perfect size to steep the herbs, fruit, spices, and nuts with room for shaking and swirling without all the ingredients being smooshed.

    And after the holidays? Well, I make BATCHES of Stollen (german fruit bread) and invariably there’s too much fruit at the end. I like to store the fruit in rum to get it ready for the next baking season.

    I heard about the contest and thought, “pint and a half jars for pickles!” I’m new to canning (just two months in), though, and fascinated with small batches. When I looked through your jars the 8 oz square jars spoke to me – they’d be so beautiful filled with apple butter and the last of the figs made into the preserves that I’ve quickly come to love!

    I would love to win the 1.5 oz. Hexagonal Sample Jars. I am away from home four days a week for work and stay in a hotel with a kitchen. I would use these jars to keep a sampling of my favorite herbs and spices so that I can cook to my heart’s content even when I’m away from my home kitchen. These tiny jars would be perfectly sized and, being glass, would not transfer flavors or odors from one to another. Thank you!

    I’m new to canning. I’ve learned something from my earlier life as a needleworker, quilter, etc.: Don’t give EVERYTHING away — save some at home! I’m going to make my first effort as a canner with 15 pounds of tomatoes, copying a friend’s recipe for spiced tomato preserves. Just one taste took me back to my mom’s kitchen. I’m attracted to the 4 oz. hexagon jars (G04-04W), because I think tomato preserves would look like rubies, but I think I’ll start simpler, with the 4 oz. tapered jars (G04-06C), so I can use the 2-piece lids.
