Excellent for storing dry/baking ingredients.

Note: The image is NOT of the actual jar that the deal relates to. It's just representative of the type of jar, for those who are not familiar with that type of lid.

They had loads in my local, Hempstead, Gillingham, Kent.

Usually this type of jar, especially pretty ones rather than just plain glass, are much more expensive.

"It's just representative of the type of jar, for those who are not familiar with that type of lid." Which, to be pedantic, isn't actually a Kilner jar type lid :-) You could say it's a " Le parfait type" jar, which may or may not be accurate, but it ain't a Kilner.

That said I think the Kilner brand name, which has been knocking around from one place to another since Kilner went bust in 1937, has in recent years even been used on those wire latch type jars. So finally the jars that people called "Kilner" but weren't, now actually might be.

The latch type is actually far superior to the Kilner screw-top jars, much more practical. I had a stash of genuine '30s screw-top Kilner jars a while back and I couldn't even give them away so they went into the bottle bank.

Well, to be pedantic again, I know they're not 'kilner', but that's how Sainsburys have described them, and what most people visualise when you say Kilner.

Every time I see one of these I cant help think of Jeremy Clarkson now .

Is anybody that bothered, its only a jar..:whistling:


Thanks op
Just so you know, they have bigger ones in Asda for £1 if you wanted a bigger size. (Yes they are Asda's own.. Before the Kilner police knock on my door:roll: )

Original Poster

Yes, I got some of the Asda ones a while back. It's handy to have different sizes though.

Never heard of Kilner jars, though I must have used them at some point...must go research this now....

Thanks for the post Smallfish, and for the info VDisillusioned

By the way - what capacity are the jars - 0.5L, 1L or 1.5L ??

Original Poster

Approx 1.25pt, or 600ml, up to the brim.

kilner never patented any type of jar just the name kilner , kilner made thousnads of types or shapes of bottles and jars , so any type of bottle or jar can be called a kilner if the naming party own the patent to the name . unlike Le parfait who do have patents for thier design but i believe its only for the rubber gasket and not the jar shape or wire fastening .
