Excellent for Making Cat Food
I make my own cat food using a raw chicken recipe found on a cat nutrition website. I use these jars to freeze the cat food for long term storage. These jars are freezer safe because they are wide mouth, but make sure not to fill them beyond the fill line at the top of the jar, especially if you are freezing something completely liquid. I recommend getting the plastic storage jar lids, sold separately, for these made by Ball instead of using the tin canning lids because those are not air tight the way the plastic ones are. These jars are of excellent quality. I freeze cat food in them and later on run them through the dishwasher and each time they are like brand new. I've even dropped a full jar with frozen cat food in it twice and they've never broken. I've never had any jars break during the freezing process as well. I think its because I make sure to leave about a half inch of air space before screwing on the plastic lid and putting them in the freezer. These are even wonderful for storing dry goods in as long as you use the plastic lids. I keep one jar in my pantry with popcorn kernels and it looks so pretty. I recommend these highly, and for the amount of years I'm sure these will last me they are well worth the price!
By far my favorite brand of jars!
To be honest I bought these to make for crafts. However last fall I found myself canning for the first time and needed to purchase some jars. I went to my local walmart and purchased both store brand and ball jars. Every one of the ball jars held up! Not one of them broke! The store brand jars would break while I was sterilizing them in boiling water, some even broke while canning. I was very disappointed. When it comes to glass jars you do get what you pay for! I prefer the wide mouth jars as well just because I can put my hand in the jar and reach to the bottom to clean them. I highly recommend Ball jars!
ball pint wide mouth jars
I love, love, love this product in the pint wide mouth size, we canned salsa in them and they worked perfectly for the salsa. we also canned diced tomatoes in the pint wide mouth size and are planning to can carrots, peas, diced potatoes, and corn in the same size. The wide mouth makes them way easier to get your items into and out of and my kids will eat salsa right out of the jar, as they allow room for dipping your chips into. I will be buying several more cases of these in the near future. They arrived today and the only complaint I have is that it was raining and they were left outside on my porch and the box got wet and soggy, but the jars were in perfect shape and no broken jars which concerned me. very satisfied customer, and I will be getting more of these. Oh, it took only 3 days to get them here. Satisfied customer.
Ball Mason Jars another win for Walmart!
I bought these wide mouth pint mason jars to use as part of my daughters wedding centerpieces. I love Ball mason jars, but not the price, Walmart has done it again! Great products at great prices!! I searched everywhere in stores and online to find the cheapest price, and Walmart came out on top again. These jars are the perfect size, and the wide mouth makes them easier to work with. The raised logo on one side shows they are authentic Ball jars, and the pretty raised fruit design on the other side really dresses them up. These jars come with ball lids and rings, they have measurement markings and are safe for freezing. A real bargain as Ball products go. Thanks again Walmart!
ordered on line and picked up at the store. the employee was so helpful to open each box and make sure that the jars were all good
