Weck Jars April 07 2016

When at-home canning was a normal household occurrence (as opposed to a foodie weekend project), can providers popped up in all the industrialized countries — Ball in the US, Parfait in France, and Weck in Germany. Like all canning jars, Wecks are extremely resistant to heat and cold, and come in every size imaginable, but they’re different than other brands because of their rubber-seal tops, which create an air-tight seal but are much easier to open than their French and American siblings. Specially designed clamps keep everything in place, so they can be thrown haphazardly in a lunchbox without fear of spilling. Ours come with organic-looking acacia wood lids.
