Size Name: preserving jars
These are very attractive jars, they have a pretty shape and design. I used them to can some apple butter I made and the results I had were mixed. Other reviewers have noted lots of sealing failures when using these for canning and I personally had a 50% success rate on my first batch (which is pretty low). After the first batch, I figured out the problem. Unlike the more common canning jars, this jar uses a one-piece lid. If you don't have the lid screwed on just right, it can be too loose to form the vacuum. AND the lids tended to loosen during processing. After reprocessing my jars, I checked the lids and they had definitely loosened during the processing step (and I was super careful tightening them before I put them in). I retightened all of them and they all sealed perfectly.
While the design is pretty, they are definitely a bit on the tempermental side. Unless looks are important, I would suggest a different set of canning jars.
Edited 8/18/2012 Thanks to a comment I received on this review, I tried using these cans with the regular Ball two piece lids and the Ball lids worked very well with these jars.

The jars come with their own one-piece lids, but the regular-mouth lids fit on these and seal well. They are expensive, but the half-pint jars are pretty with the relief script of Quattro Stagioni on one side of the jar while the other sports a relief with fruit, a beehive, a butterfly, and some bees which I wasn't able to discern in the picture.

I've been using these jars for several years to can gifts for friends and family. The jars are gorgeous in their own right, but a cloth topper and/or a bow make them a real standout gift. I consider these jars a specialty item and not something I'd use for everyday canning - for that I would use regular Ball jars/lids/rings. But I'm okay with paying a little more for these high-quality adorable jars for gift giving, and consider the jar itself as much a part of the gift as its contents. I also use them to hold gifts of candied nuts, homemade granola and other things that do not get sealed in a water bath.

SEALING - I've never had a problem with the jars not sealing. The single-most important step in getting the jars to seal is to not over-tighten the lids! The air in the jar expands when heated and escapes through microscopic pores in the mastic, creating a vacuum. The lid needs to be tight enough to keep water from getting into the jar during the water bath, but not so tight that these pores are flattened and the air can't escape.

FINGERTIP TIGHT - To get the lid tightened correctly, the trick is to use ONLY your fingertips to screw the lid on. With just the strength of your thumb and four fingers, screw the lid on firmly. Don't curl your fingers and cup your hand around the rim using the strength of your wrist and arm. Only the tips of your fingers should touch the rim of the lid, and only your fingers should move to firmly tighten the lid.

WATERBATH - The lidded jars with their hot contents need to be completely covered in water no hotter than what comes out of your tap. Once the water comes to a boil on the stove, the 5-oz jars need to remain in the boiling water for 20 minutes, and the 8-1/2-oz jars for 25 minutes.

These are beautiful and useful canning jars but you cannot use them following the same methods used for Ball jars. The company website gives instructions that must be followed to have success.

The main differences are:
You cannot fill these jars past the base of the neck of the jar. So if a recipe calls for 1/4 inch head space you will have to ignore that. Since I live at a high altitude and you have to add more head space at higher altitudes anyways, it really isn't an issue for me.

You are to screw on the lids tightly, but not too tightly, which is basically the same as with Ball jar lids. These lids are BPA free however which gives them a big advantage. Plus, it's just easier to manage a one piece lid.

After you have process these jars for the time called for in your recipe, you are to move the water bath canner off the heat and allow the jars to cool under the water in the canner until cool enough that you can remove them by hand. You are to handle them by the jar only and not by the lids. This is important because the sealing compound on these jars is still pliable until they have been completely cool for a bit. So, if you are processing multiple batches you shouldn't use these since you have to let them cool for awhile on the canner before removing. I typically do small batches so this isn't an issue for me.

Once they have been filled and processed you cannot stack these jars for storage. Also, the manufacture adds that these are not meant for pressure canning.

So there are definitely some big differences when using these jars, but for me the differences don't really change much about how I do things that matter to me. I prefer a one piece lid and I love that they are BPA free. That being said, these jars that take the 70mm lids can be used with the regular mouth 2 piece lids from other companies.

I purchased these jars because I decided to make my own baby food and wanted to store the food in glass rather than plastic Tupperware. These are wonderful. I love the one piece lids as well! Everyone always comments on how beautiful the jars are when they see me feeding my son with them.
