Kilner has been making glass jars and bottles since the 1840s and is a well known brand in the British traditional kitchen.
The Kilner range at Wares of Knutsford
Like the little black dress, the Kilner jar never goes out of style. As useful in a modern environment as in the traditional kitchen, over time customers simply find more and more interesting uses for their jars. Wares of Knusford stocks a variety of Kilner products, including basic screw top preserving jars. These heavy duty glass jars come in 250ml, 500ml and 1000ml sizes with a heat sealable, gold coloured metal disc and band screw top. We also stock modern versions of traditional items, such as clip top jars in 500ml and 1000ml sizes in pink, blue or green glass. There are five clear glass knobstopper style storage jars in 650ml, 1000ml, 1500ml, 2000m and 2350ml sizes, available individually or as a set, and swing top bottles in 250ml and 1000ml sizes, in green, blue or pink glass. Handled drinking jars in clear and coloured glass look great at summer events such as BBQs and picnics, while Kilner products are the mainstay of our hoe brewing department.
Home brewing is made easy with Kilner’s complete sets, containing all the equipment and ingredients you need to make your own, high quality lager, cider, bitter and red or white wine. There’s also a comprehensive range of accessories, including beer bottles, and a starter kit containing all the equipment you need.
Last but not least, take a look at the Kilner Maslin pan, pan rack and fruit press, for professional results from home preserving.
Kilner jars in the modern kitchen
Here at Wares of Knutsford we are constantly amused, impressed and entertained at the creative uses to which our customers have put their Kilner jars. Apart from preserving and storage, they have almost endless uses.
Recently one clever customer used the pretty, pastel coloured clip top jars to make a particularly girly gift for her teenage daughter and friends, in the form of a sleepover pamper kit. The jars each contained a sachet of face mask, a hairband, miniature bottles of hand and foot lotion, a nail file, a sachet of hot chocolate powder, a scented tea light and a little bottle of nail polish, each in different colours. Each jar was decorated with with a ribbon and a home made, personalised tag. Can you beat that?
