Mar 10, 2018 Wonderful Weck: Awesome Glass Storage Jars Photo by Sarah Phillips, www.UglyProduceIsBeautiful.com Replace plastic storage containers and lids with petrochemical-free, airtight, stackable, Weck jars. Microwave, freeze, refrigerate and can -- all in one container. Glassery loves these German-made jars so much that we think everyone should have them regardless of shelf space -- so we sell single jars as well as cases. We sell the ½-liter and 1-liter Tulip Jars we just added Cylinder Jars in 1-liter and 1 ½-liter sizes. Glassery loves the new wooden lids, and we're making them available for all the sizes we carry. Weck jars are essentials in my kitchen. I use them for storing everything from stews and sauces to spices and dried beans. I run out of jars long before I run out of uses. I love being able to pour hot broth and soup into them for storing in the freezer. I also love running the lids and rubber seals through the dishwasher without having to worry about dangerous chemicals leaching out. I heard about Weck from a home canner who told me that the coating on Mason and Ball jar lids contains BPA. Yikes. Care tip: Defrost by running hot water from the faucet on the center of the lid. Don't put frozen jars in hot water; they may crack. It helps to keep a little container in your drawer for the metal clips -- but if you lose one, don't worry. We have plenty of extras and will ship them to our customers free of charge.
