Product Description

These sturdy, well-made jars are suited to a wide range of canning tasks, and many people think that they look rather nice as well, making them very popular among cooks all over the world. Good Le Parfait jars can get costly, but some people feel that it is worth the expense, as these jars are known for being extremely reliable and very easy to use. Le Parfait jars really are perfect for a lot of things, thanks to their design. A classic Le Parfait jar has a lid mounted on a wire hinge, with a locking lever to fasten the lid to the top of the jar. A rubber o-ring is inserted into the lid as a gasket, creating an airtight seal inside the jar which will hold until the lever is lifted, breaking the seal. It is also possible to find Le Parfait jars with screw-on caps. For canning, these jars are extremely useful. and because they are clear, it is easy to see the contents of the jar. They can also be used for more general kitchen storage; until cooks are ready to use the contents of the jar, and they can be easily re-sealed. You can also use Le Parfait jars for freezing, although you should be careful to leave a gap at the top of the jar to allow the contents to expand. If the jar lacks sufficient expansion room, it will explode when the contents freeze all the way, since the seal is too strong to allow the jar to simply pop open. Some people also use Le Parfait jars with special gaskets to make fermented foods; in this case, the gasket allows gas to escape from the jar, but not to enter it. The basic design of Le Parfait jars may not be terribly innovative or remarkable, but it has become associated with quality, both because the jars are often of very good quality and because they have become popular with gourmets around the world. Many kitchen supply stores sell Le Parfait jars, and you can also order them from companies which specialize in imported French kitchen supplies.

I agree with Mr Lowell, great product. But he should have given 5 stars since the product and the seller are not the same. I would have given the seller 3 stars, but this canning jar deserves 5 stars. Unlike many similar items, this is actually airtight, and to me, that makes it worth every penny. Also, it's not made in china and is made of glass, which not only resists chemical reactions but also allows the contents to be easily viewed.

Good jar for keeping dry goods in like spices and loose leaf teas. I like the design and the gasket to keep the jar tight. The pricing on Amazon though is quite high. I found this product at a local kitchen store for half of the price listed on here.

I am preserving lemons. The jar when turned upside down leaks. I tried replacing the seal. Same result. I can't imagine canning with these. I guess i will use them for dry products.

I use one of these to store brown sugar. The jar provides a simple yet completely effective air/water tight seal.

This would have been a 5-star review.

The rubber washer creates a nice tight seal around the lip of the jar. The jar glass itself is of sturdy construction, I've dropped it from waist height onto my wood floor a few times, no problem.

The only gripe I have is that the metal tightening ring on the bottom pushes and rests directly against the glass. Somehow when I was closing the jar the glass chipped off the lower rim, right where the front latch sticks up.

There should be an additional rubber washer isolating the metal latch components and ring from the glass itself, then this would be a 5/5 design.
