Why use Mason Jars?
The Mason Jar Lifestyle is a life simplified. As a new generation discovers the wonder of this versatile glass container, we now see and are reminded that Mason jars can serve as food storage (short term or long term), drinking glasses, travel mugs, cocktail shakers, soap pumps, candle holders, flower vases, piggy banks, fermentation/pickling containers, organizational tools, crafts/home decor, and so much more! With the right Mason jar accessories, they can function in seemingly infinite ways.
Around our home, you’ll always find one Mason jar in our kitchen windowsill holding a bouquet of fresh garden herbs, several Mason jars on various available shelves with fermenting carrots, cucumbers, cabbage, and whatever else sounds good at the moment, and many in the cupboards full of nuts and grains purchased at the local warehouse or health food store in bulk. In too many rooms you will find pint-and-a-half jars for the adults and half pint jars for the kids with various amounts of assorted beverages in them. In the fridge, wide mouth pints hold our homemade mayonnaise and leftover soup, quarts hold various fermented vegetables and shredded cheese, half gallon jars hold our kombucha and iced coffee, and half pints hold sauces, hummus, oatmeal, and more. Mason jars offer an affordable, versatile, environmentally friendly, and stylish solution for countless household needs. Once you have a supply of Mason jars, you’ll wonder what you ever did without them. And once you have a supply of all the right accessories, they become even more useful!
The fact that you only need 2 sizes of lids (regular and wide mouth) for jars ranging from 4oz to 64oz is incredibly convenient! No more searching your kitchen for the right lid!
Canning in Mason jars preserves food for one to five years, and, in some cases, even longer! Go ahead and order the extra large box of farm fresh peaches in the late summer — make fruit preserves with your extra fruit! OK, who are we kidding? No one has trouble eating a box of peaches. But how about all those extra tomatoes and zucchini from your garden? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to pop open a can of home grown veggies in the middle of winter?
With all the concern over chemicals like BPA and pthalates in plastic, it seems like an obvious choice to switch your family’s drinkware and food storage containers to glass. Mason jars are the best option! Once you have a supply, you have interchangeable drinking glasses, food storage containers, vases, measuring cups, pickling/canning jars, and more, and you can rest assured that your family is not being exposed to harmful chemicals. And if you do break one, they are cheap to replace and readily available. We carry a variety of plastic free lids, like our Stainless Steel Storage Lids.
If you are concerned about glass breakage, our Silicone Sleeves protect against drops. If the jar does still break, they will contain the pieces rather than shattering everywhere.
Mason jars are everywhere, and not just because they’re oh-so-functional. People absolutely love the look of them! Do a quick Google search for “weddings” or “home decor”, and you’re bound to see lots and lots of Mason jars. Mason jars are big, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. You’ll find Mason jar drinkware and decor at some of the fanciest restaurants around. You can be confident that if you choose to use Mason jars as a focal point in your home or at your next party, you’ll be right on trend.
Why use disposable storage containers when you can find so many sizes of functional, reusable Mason jars? Keep a stash in your cupboard to use for on-the-go snacking or to pack in your lunch box! Store your food leftovers in Mason jars and, when you’re ready to reheat them, just pop the jar right in the microwave – Mason jars are both microwave and freezer safe!
