 Hello folks

Where does one go when you have a question about Kilner Jars?

Where else but here of course. wave

A friend of mine just gave me an 8 litre Kilner Jar with a tap on the bottom. Now according to Google it is ideal for serving drinks such as punch at parties. medicine

However, being a Kilner it has the typical airtight lid, same as the preserving jars, and this is causing problems. Because it's airtight the liquid will not flow out of the tap when the lid is closed only when it's open. This kind of defeats the issue somewhat as far as I can see. Or am I missing something here? doh

Does anyone have one of these or know if there is some secret trick to getting them to flow with the lid shut? what_the_heck

All help will be very gratefully received. 

Thanks

Sounds ok to me, that 's what it is supposed to do, unless it gives you any problems, just break the seal, use and re-seal. You would need to fashion a tap To go through the lid such that when you open it, it breaks the vacuum, no easy task!!!!

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

8 litres didn't know they existed. Probably designed to stop you getting drunk...unless you unseal it!

Certainly WON'T be drilling through the lid to install a tap. big_laugh

I was more concerned with what would happen to what was inside once the seal was broken and the air got to it although I suppose that it'd be no different to opening a bottle and putting the cap back on afterwards.

Thanks for your reply. wink

Neither did I until he told me he had one and had no use for it. It's a fair size I can tell you. If I could work out how to upload a photo I'd post one of it. Have a look on Google and you'll see them there. ok
