Ball Wide Mouth jars are available in 4 styles: Half Gallons, Quarts, Pints and a Half and Pints.
Kerr brand wide mouth jars are available exclusively in the Half Pint version only.
The Elite jars in a separate category also take wide mouth lids.
The wide mouth nomenclature denotes the size of the mouth opening: the lid is a 86mm continuous thread size. These jars are compatible with our single one piece high heat gold lids and all other accessories designed for wide mouth jars.
The wide mouth jar is a popular choice for preserving, with the larger mouth allowing room to position fruit for optimal presentation in the jar and for ease of filling and cleaning. The pint and a half jars are also popular for drinking and smoothies.
Wide mouth jars of pint and a half size and smaller have straight sides and so are suitable for freezing.
All wide mouth jars have embossing on all parts of the jar and there is no room on the side of the jar for a label. They are also embossed with Wide Mouth to distinguish them from their regular mouth counterparts.
