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.
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.
I bought 2 kilner jars online and there is a site that is good for tips on how to use them.http://www.kilnerpreservingjars.co.uk/bottling.asp.
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.
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.
