Ball’s canning products have been in steady demand for our customers over the years, so we carry one of the largest online selections of their products. Ball® has stopped selling to preservers directly, but Fillmore Container will continue to carry one of the largest varieties of Ball and Kerr jars, at the best prices.

If you’re new to canning, a simple pH chart will give you guidance on pH and which preserving method will be needed. Making jelly without pectin? You can use a sheet test to determine if you’ve reached the gelling point. Don’t forget to sift through their recipes too. Or maybe you’ll want to add the latest Ball Blue Book to your cart? Whether you are preserving to strengthen your food security & independence or canning with gifting in mind, we’ve got the proper jars and lids to suit your needs. You can find compatible lids and fitments to each jar under its “Accessories” tab.
We are often asked which Ball products we carry, so we’ve put a list together for you.
The Smooth-Sided Jar Collection from Ball offers a smooth face on three sides of the jars, with a minimized Ball logo on one side. These jars accommodate a wide variety of labeling for preserves and increase decorating options for crafting, decor, gifting and sharing. They are available in 16 oz. regular mouth, 32 oz. regular mouth, and 32 oz. wide mouth. Read more about these jars here.
All of Ball’s jars come packaged with bands and lids, but if you need fresh dome lids they are sold 12 to a pack, or you can purchase a combo ring and dome set sold in packs of 12. If you do a lot of canning, consider purchasing our bulk flats, available in both regular and wide mouth. They are manufactured by Ball, but are unmarked. Ball’s plastic storage lids are also a nice one-piece option when storing open jars in the fridge available in both regular and wide mouth. They are packaged 8 to a pack.
Be sure you are using jars that are freezer safe. Check out the chart below to identify which jars are best for freezing. Learn more about how to freeze in jars safely here https://www.fillmorecontainer.com/blog/2017/01/16/new-smooth-sided-jars-from-ball/st.
