Weck canning jars are made of thick glass to withstand boiling and sterilization. Glass lids are immune to rusting and can be used to process again and again. Since the lids are made of glass (as opposed to aluminum) there is no BPA coating that is found on metal canning jar lids. The replaceable natural rubber rings, when facing downward indicate clearly that the seal on the jars are intact. Each jar contains 1 glass lid, 1 natural rubber ring and 2 stainless steel clamps.

This canning jar is especially good for asparagus, pickling cucumbers, or peppers. This glass is also tall enough to double as a vase.

Just purchased the 1 liter and 1/2 liter jars from Mighty Nest. First of all, Mighty Nest has been great, will definitely be back for more jars and other items in the future.
The Weck name has definitely lived up to the hype. The jars are beautiful and function just as well if not better than the typical American canning jars with the BPA problems. For the first use of these jars I pressure canned some red kidney beans. The jars hold up 100%. No cracking, chipping, etc. The seals held 100% on all jars and the canning procedure was perfect. I highly recommend these quality jars to anyone considering canning. If you are using these jars for pressure canning, I recommend using three metal clips on each jar rather than the two that are provided.

I've never heard of Weck before and I have to say there jars are beautiful. MightyNest customer service is awesome too!! I had an indentation on the jar that I received and customer service sent me another one immediately. The only complaint I have is the clips that comes with the jars. The 2 clips(clamps) are not attached to the lid and could easily get misplaced (which is my only issue) otherwise the jars are beautiful.

I love using this jar and lid to make herbal infusions! It has a beautiful simple shape that makes it easy to remove the wet herbs in the mornings.

Absolutely love these, great for storing leftovers. I also take these to restaurants when I get soup, food etc. to go, so I don't have it touching plastic and styrofoam.

These jars and rings are great. I have some other Weck jars of different shapes and I really like the style.
