Has anyone got any experience with using the new type of Kilner jar that Rayware are now manufacturing you can get them from Lakeland I bought 24 recently there was one broken in the box on arrival.  The was a sticky lable on all of them saying "Handwash only".

By the look and feel of them they don't seem to be as robust as other jars.  I planned to use them for recipes that need pressure cooking but I am not experienced so I sent an email to Rayware to ask them this is more than a week ago no and I have not received any response.

I bought 12 of the jars from Lakeland. I haven't used them for pressure canning but used them in the oven and they worked well. If you look at this page (scroll down to the reviews) on the Lakeland site, someone has used them for canning.

Not about the Kilner jars, but le Parfait–have you seen or used the silicon rings that can be resterilised? I have used them on jars for fruit gins, but not yet for bottling.

Thanks for the link Tania, I'm sure a lot of us will be reading that site.

I'll try that again!

In hardware stores in the US there are Mason jars, and spare lids (=UK Kilner jars), and huge pans to boil and seal them in. And in grocery stores/supermarkets, too. Not hidden away, or just a few, but huge displays of them.

Sigh.

They don't do me any good being there and too big to bring home... but I can't do any preserving at the moment anyway because the kitchen walls need to dry out slowly so I can't add steam or even output from the dehydrator till next week at the earliest.
