Despite being invented in Yorkshire over 170 years ago, the infamous Kilner Jar remains a popular household name across Britain. The airtight storage containers aren’t just for Grandmother’s making homemade jams, they’re an essential in everyone’s kitchen and their uses extend across the home.

The History of Kilner Jars

Invented in 1842 by glass bottle makers, John Kilner & Co, the Kilner Jar continued to be made in Yorkshire until 1937 when the business declared bankruptcy and its patent rights were bought by the United Glass Bottle Company. The rights were then sold on to The Rayware Group in 2000, who continue to develop new styles of the original Kilner Jar to keep up with modern trends and consumer demands.

Kilner Jars are a great Storage Solution

The tightly sealed jars provide an effective storage solution for all foods, including pasta, flour, sugar, rice, cereals, tea bags, coffee, jam and much more. From the beginning of the Kilner Jar in the 1800’s through to the present day, the importance of preserving foods in a safe way is still supported by the wide range of Kilner Jars for sale. The traditional round clip top jars, with the orange rubber seal, remain a Kitchen staple for storing dry ingredients, while the vintage hexagonal jars, with cute gingham lids, continue to be the perfect way to preserve homemade jams.
