PROS:
These little canning jars are adorable and display your canned goods to advantage. I used them to can a jelly that includes tiny bits of red and green peppers suspended in a clear, hot-pepper jelly. I planned to give half the resulting jars to friends for gifts, and keep the remainder to serve to company. With their thinner, clearer glass sides and more elegant shape, the little jars were an instant ooh-ahh hit with my friends and fellow canning aficionados. I also think that the higher-quality bottling helped convince the receivers of the gifts that the jelly was tastier and more special.

Each jar holds approximately 3/4" cup of liquid (allowing for a 1/4" gap at the top of the bottle), which is just about the perfect size for gift giving.

CONS:
The jars are made in Italy and use one solid, 56mm-sized cap (not a ring and lid), which aren't generally available for replacement at a reasonable price. The bottles won't accept any standard USA-made bottle caps. After googling, I found two places that sell replacement lids for $2.25 for three lids, which translates to $9.00 + a generous shipping cost of $17 for a set of twelve caps. If you're planning to give all your bottles away, this isn't a show stopper. If, like me, you expect to re-use some or all of the bottles, then you just need to factor the lid-replacement costs and availability into your bottling budget. I decided, instead, to switch to the one-cup Leifheit decorative canning jars and replacement lids (both available on Amazon), which when I factored in the costs of bottles, lids, and shipping turned out to be a few cents less expensive than the Quattro Stagioni. They're also equally attractive for gift giving.

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 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.
