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.

So...to first qualify myself. I've been canning for over 30 years - since I was able to walk & pick fruit/veggies from a garden. Historically, I've used ball jars with the 2-pc lids. So, that is my "expertise". I have never had experience canning with the single pc lid like these pretty jars had but I'm well versed with the english language & can read instructions pretty well. Anywho....over 50% of the lids didn't seal properly. The ones that did, only stayed sealed for a few days, and then popped. Too dang bad...these jars are meant to "sit there & look pretty", but don't expect much functional use from them. Will not buy again. They get 2 stars for looks & a big fat ZERO for functionality. Sorry~~

I have used these jars when canning jams and find them to be superior in looks to most other jars I have seen and used. They make an elegant presentation all by themselves. That said, they are expensive. When canning one must feel sure that what we make and give to others is properly sealed and safe from harmful bacteria that can result from improper technique and sealing. And the USDA recommends jars that have a lid AND a ring, and these Bormioli (from Italy) jars do not use a ring. "Ball" jars which are American, use the lid and ring so I also use Ball jars. But these are just more elegant looking and have worked well overall. I will continue to use them. So far, 1 of of 8 jars that I've used has failed to seal but it doesn't mean the jar is defective, possibly I did not pack that particular one properly so I did not take away a star from my rating. It just happens sometimes no matter what kind of jar you use. There is a little slightly noticeable dot/indentation in the middle of this jar that you can press your finger to, to see if it is sealed. If you can push it down and it comes back up it is not sealed. If it cannot be pressed in and is slightly indented, it likely has the proper seal. My only other problem was one jar lid was so tight after sealing that I had to hit it multiple times with the end of a butter knife, against the counter, and finally put it upside down in a hot water bath to be able to unscrew it. I am pretty strong and rarely have issues getting jars open so that was exceptionally tough. I may have tightened it a little too much before I processed it but I don't really know for sure, so again, I couldn't take one star away.Read more ›
