Each jar has an airtight clip lock lid, held in place with a wire hinge. They also have a silicone ring inside the lid which help maintain the airtight seal. We’ve included 3 red seals, and 3 blue ones with each set so you’ll always have a spare for cleaning, or just to colour code your jars. The silicone seals are BPA free.
If you make your own jam, marmalade, curd or other preserves, these jars are great for storing them. Glass jars are easy to sterilise and the airtight seal is perfect for jam jars.
