1. For canning or pickling fresh fruits and veggies: they're the perfect size for home use or for gifting. The lid has plenty of room to write the date and product (in case I don't have labels handy). The glass (as opposed to plastic) is also needed for the boiling process of canning goods. (If you like to keep your preserves in smaller quantities, I'd suggest an 8 ounce or 12 ounce jar, as opposed to these 16 ounce jars.)
2. For making salads-on-the-go, dough in a jar, or storing leftover veggies in the fridge (I'm one of those people who suffers from the affliction where all of her tupperware lids mysteriously go missing, and I hate to use saran wrap for covering food, Plus, I try to avoid using plastic whenever possible).
3. For crafting: I cut a slit in the top and use washi tape or paint to decorate the jars, to make cute piggy banks. I also store my perler beads in these jars to separate them by color and be able to easily identify the colors through the clear glass. They're also a good fit for making hanging votives holders. Plus, a lot more craft projects!
I'm super clumsy, but these jars have a sturdy grip and I've never broken one of them. *Fingers crossed*
The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the pricing: it might be my Amazon Prime account that raises the price a bit. But I can generally find these in 12-packs at the grocery store or on crafting websites for a little bit less. But I'm willing to pay a little extra so I can use my Prime shipping to get them quickly and avoid grocery stores.
All in all, these are my favorite mason jars.
Many people don't like using plastic to store food,so these work well as replacements for plastic containers. To use for packing lunches, make sure and find some type of packing to put around them to protect them from breakage. (One idea: cut a solid piece of Styrofoam the size of the bottom of your lunch container and then cut out holes the size of the bottom of the jar into the styrofoam at least an inch apart. Then the jars should fit inside without moving around)
They keep the spices fresh. They work well for what I use them for.
My mother and her friends all used Kerr and Ball growing up, I believe from their experiences there was not really a difference between the two. If there is, I don't know what that difference is. I don't use them for canning, though do plan to do some canning in the near future. When I do, I'll probably use Ball because these are only available online (where I live and I refuse to shop at Walmart) and Ball is less expensive. For basically being the same thing, I really don't know why I'd choose one brand over the other unless there's a specific reason (like labeling).
I do use the Ball (tall) mason jars for the other things (flour, dried fruit, sugar) and it looks really awesome with the labels and there is enough space at the bottom of the Ball to fit the labels I'm using flush to the surface. (I got lucky on that)
If you'd like to see a picture of how I use my jars for organizing my spices, check out my website with this review and how I used the jars at my business (nutritional therapy/lifecoach) at website www.bestfood4life.com and at the top click the product reviews section or you can click directly here:

FYI, there are some nice plastic lids that go with these jars if you wanted to check them out. I found that if you get the lids wet (metal) as they are, they do have a tendency to rust. However, that was by accident as I don't really get them wet, but that might be something to consider if you were canning homemade jelly and were planning on opening and closing the lid a bunch. Just a side thought.
Hope this review was helpful to you! :)
I'm planning to can a lot of green beans this year and realized that I might not have enough jars to handle it.
I've used both Kerr and Ball jars in the past and both perform well.
The wide mouth jars are easier to clean and fill, so even though I have quite a few regular mouth jars in both pint and quart sizes, I wanted to get wide mouth jars when purchasing more.
I vacuum seal dry goods in canning jars, but usually use quart or half gallon jars for dry goods like dry beans and rice, but I usually use pint jars for cowpeas and lentils.
