Wares of Knutsford’s core business always has been and remains jars and bottles. We are a preserving emporium. Over the years we have expanded our range to include a wide variety of other kitchen goods but remain the first and last stop for customers looking to buy jars and bottles online.
Different shaped jam jars with lids
The main concerns when choosing your jars are the shape and size, and the method of closure. The Wares of Knutsford range starts with basic glass jam jars with lids but encompasses a huge number of fancier options. Whether you are doing some home preserving for yourself or to give as gifts or are buying wholesale for commercial endeavours, give some thought to how you want to present your product. For a traditional or rustic look, plain glass jars or bottles can be the most appropriate, and can be dressed up if required with pretty labels, ribbons and tags. However there are also different shapes of jars – globes, squares, embossed, faceted or even tilted, sweet shop style jars that may be more appropriate for your needs.
Sizes range from miniatures up to large, litre size Kilner, Mason and Leifheit jars for more serious storage.
It’s not all about the cooking either, with a variety of cosmetic and aromatherapy jars in clear of coloured glass.
Sealing options for jam jars with lids
Closures can be functional or decorative. Most of our jars and bottles are supplied with lids but we also have a separate section of the website just for buying extra lids. Each individual product page gives details of the size of lid you need, which you can take to the easy lid selector page to help you choose. We offer a range of different colours. If you have any questions about buying lids, do not hesitate to contact us as we will be happy to talk through your requirements.
However do spend some time investigating the different jar and bottle options first, as there is a huge range of sealing options depending on which jar you choose – apart from basic screw tops, our bottles and jars can be bought with clip tops, glass stoppers, knobstoppers, sprays, corks, press caps, pouring spouts, swing tops and even dropper tops.
Having selected the size, shape and closure method for your jars and bottles, pay a visit to our label shop for gift tags and self adhesive, decorative labels in plain, traditional or modern styles.
