The original Kilner® Jar, first invented by John Kilner and Co. in 1842, is as much loved and successful now as it was over 178 years ago. Its long-lasting popularity is owed to its unique pressure seal, iconic design and overall high quality. In the 1900's, Kilner® presented its innovation as 'the original and the best, all other brands are substitutes', a claim which remains relevant today, and is a testament to its impressive heritage.
A surge in popularity for preserving home-grown fruit and vegetables, and storing food in glass rather than plastic for its health and environmental benefits, has catapulted the Kilner® brand into the limelight amongst consumers in recent times. Not only is Kilner® now an essential for the kitchen, but it has also become a style statement around the home and beyond.
