A Review of New Anchor Hocking Jars on Food in Jars + Giveaway

Review of New Anchor Hocking Jars

This week, we are sponsoring a giveaway with Food in Jars. We sent her a couple of cases of our recently added line of Anchor Hocking jars.

These new regular mouth jars are available in Half Pints – 8oz, Pints – 16oz., and Quarts – 32oz. We love these new jars because they are smooth on all sides, sport a softened square shape and shoulders and are perfect for labeling. Find out what Marisa McClellan loves about them in her review of the Anchor Hocking jars.

It’s important to note that these jars do not come with lids, which offers a lot of flexibility in selecting your own closures. If you intend to use them for traditional two-piece canning, the jars work perfectly with Ball’s two-piece lids.

In the demo, and recent blog post, Marisa filled the new Anchor Hocking Half Pints – 8oz with this Strawberry Meyer Lemon Jam.  Now, I know we are partial, but we think these new jars display preserves just beautifully. Perfect for your pantry, or gifting to friends. The smooth sides make labeling a snap.

Don’t forget to enter to win a case of the Anchor Hocking jars (jar size is winner’s choice), a dozen lids and rings, and a $25 gift card, good on our website (perhaps you’ll want to use it to get a copy of Marisa’s Naturally Sweet Food in Jars!).  Go here to ENTER. This giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents.

    Any chance Anchor Hocking will be making these in wide mouth? I find I use wide mouth more often than regular. But I love the shape.

      We agree…it sure would be nice option! If we get any confirmation on that possibility, we’ll be sure to share!

    I love using Fillmore jars for storing my dehydrated fruits. Vacuum sealing the lids for extra protection. These new jars will be so pretty on my pantry shelf!

    Can they be used for water bath canning?

      Yes, they can! 🙂

    I want to know how they do for pressure canning?

      Hi Jani,
      There isn’t currently any official data available to us that allows us to recommend these jars for pressure canning. We’ve been requesting that it be done for years – it must be done by an independent third party. When we get that data, we’ll be sure to include it in our descriptions.

    I wonder if there are fake/reproduction of Anchor Hocking canning jars. I bought 6pcs 1L jars from a retailer shop and all have hairlines.

      Hi Maureen, It’s quite possible. We’ve seen many versions of canning jars out in retail spaces that are clearly not food-grade, and are only for decorative use.
