    These jars are just what I needed. I use them to send pies in a jar to my son who is deployed overseas. I prepare the jars for canning as usual then prepare and bake the pie in the jar. I seal them right out of the oven, pack them up and mail them. They have arrived safe and fresh every time. My son loves them and always asks for more, yum.

      I used these jars to can homemade applesauce for my work lunches. I like these jars because they are easier to fill being wide mouth & when you put them in the water bath they don't tip over like the jelly jars. I plan on purchasing more next year. I only bought 1 set since I had jars from last year but I like these better. Pick up in store was easy & convenient.

            I love these. I use them for my oatmeal in the mornings - I make five servings on Sunday night and I divvy it up between five jars and the oatmeal stays fresh until Friday. They are easy to clean with the wide mouths.

                      The jars are great. I mean, they're standard canning jars. Just be careful about having them shipped to a store for in-store pick-up. It took about 30 minutes for them to locate my order, after being directed to a couple of different locations in the store. To their defense, it was a new store. Still, not a great experience.

                        Great quality jars. I use these for cellaring pipe tobacco, as the wide mouth makes it easy to load/unload the jars. I wish Ball had a wide-mouth 8oz that wasn't their funky "Elite" series. The Elite series don't stack well due to their squashed shape. These are just the right shape/size. I use these for most blends and use regular mouth 8oz Ball jars for flake tobacco. My only complaint that is only a minor inconvenience is that they are not kept in stock at my local Ace and have to be ordered online.

                          Ordered 2 cases of these online via in-store local pick-up. Hassle free, however, you don't receive an e-mail until the item is actually at the store for pick-up. Out of the 2 cases of 24 jars total, 1 had a crack in the glass at the bottom area but it hasn't affected it's use so far.

                                  I have begun making my own yogurt, and 1/2 gallon of milk fills all 12 of these cups, leaving a little extra room to add your own fruit on top. I incubate the yogurt right in the jars. I just ordered a second set, along with the plastic lids, which I think will work better for my purposes.

                                        I used these jars to make individual apple pies for Christmas. They have the classic "Kerr" across the side and other than that design, the glass is smooth. The wide mouth makes it easy to bake in, and easy to clean. These jars are great for a number of uses.

                                              I got these to hold home made body scrub for gifts. They are perfect with the wide mouth and 8oz capacity.

                                                    I have been a home canner for many decades, and these make the perfect presentation of my goods for holiday gifting. Whether I fill them with carrot cake jam, baked apple butter or homegrown salsa, they are great for dipping thick foods out of, and the clear jar shows off the filling nicely.

                                                    It IS slightly more difficult to obtain a true vaccuum seal with the wide-mouth lid over such a small quantity, but so long as I use them for jams and relish, they only require a water bath and seal nicely.

                                                    So glad to find these still in stock - they are not available in the Ball jar line, and the Kerr product is becoming ever harder to find in my market. Thanks!

                                                        I bought these jars in my first attempt to candle making. They are the perfect size and having a wide mouth, throws a good scent. I liked not having to pay freight as they were delivered to the store for pick up.

                                                        What can you say about mason jars except that they are JARS? My comment is about the "buy online, pick up at store." No one at the store seemed to know what to do when I picked up my order. I had to wait around while someone was found who knew how to handle the transaction. If you are going to offer this service, you should take measures to ensure that your employees know how to provide it.

                                                          These are much less likely to tip over during water bath canning. The wide mouth makes it easy to remove all contents.

                                                            I bought these jars for storing my collection of pipe tobacco blends. The jars work great, seal nice and airtight, stack neatly and securely, and provide a nice easy view of the contents. They are also a great value for the price.

                                                                  I measured 5 oz. The lids start to degrade after a couple of uses. The plastic replacement lids are crazy expensive.
