A Review of New Anchor Hocking Jars on Food in Jars + Giveaway


This week, we are sponsoring a giveaway with Food in Jars. We sent her a couple of cases of our recently added line of Anchor Hocking jars.


These new regular mouth jars are available in Half Pints – 8oz, Pints – 16oz., and Quarts – 32oz. We love these new jars because they are smooth on all sides, sport a softened square shape and shoulders and are perfect for labeling. Find out what Marisa McClellan loves about them in her review of the Anchor Hocking jars.

It’s important to note that these jars do not come with lids, which offers a lot of flexibility on selecting your own closures. If you intend to use them for traditional two-piece canning, the jars work perfectly with Ball’s two-piece lids.

We loved watching Marisa McClellan test these jars out in her recent Facebook Live Jamming Demo below.


In the demo, and recent blog post, Marisa filled the new Anchor Hocking Half Pints – 8oz with this Strawberry Meyer Lemon Jam.  Now, I know we are partial, but we think these new jars display preserves just beautifully. Perfect for your pantry, or gifting to friends. The smooth sides make labeling a snap.



Don’t forget to enter to win a case of the Anchor Hocking jars (jar size is winner’s choice), a dozen lids and rings, and a $25 gift card, good on our website (perhaps you’ll want to use it to get a copy of Marisa’s Naturally Sweet Food in Jars!).  Go here to ENTER. This giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents.

    Any chance Anchor Hocking will be making these in wide mouth? I find I use wide mouth more often than regular. But I love the shape.

      We agree…it sure would be nice option! If we get any confirmation on that possibility, we’ll be sure to share!

    I love using Fillmore jars for storing my dehydrated fruits. Vacuum sealing the lids for extra protection. These new jars will be so pretty on my pantry shelf!

    Can they be used for water bath canning?
