Buyer Beware - Easily Broken During Shipment
on November 11, 2009
I have been canning for many years and this was my 1st order through Amazon for jars. I normally buy locally. Unfortunately of the two cases I purchases one case had five broken jars and one cracked jar. The 2nd case had one cracked jar only. For some reason whoever did the packaging only placed air packs on one side of the box. For glass jars that touch each other with no cardboard separators and since this was an order of two 12-packs of jars, I would have expected better care. I will be returning my full order for a refund and will continue to shop locally. I went with an Amazon Prime order since it was such a great deal and I have never had a problem in the past with other merchandise. This was shipped very poorly.
PLEASE NOTE - SINCE THE JARS DO NOT HAVE CARDBOARD SEPERATORS BETWEEN THEM, YOU MAY EXPERIENCE SCRATCHING FROM THE JARS RUBBING AGAINST EACH OTHER DURING SHIPPING.
The jars have a raised image for decoration. Almost all of my jars were scratched, but would not affect canning unless it turned into a crack. Each case is shrinked wrapped by the manufacturer. This is a manufacturer issue and of no fault of Amazon.
