Kerr is a range of mason jars for home canning. They can also be used for freezing, dry storage, and decorative functions. Kerr is primarily marketed in the western United States, where it has historically had a loyal customer base. Many people like Kerr jars because of the clean sides on the main, everyday jars in the Kerr product line. The clean sides, some people feel, allow labels affixed onto the jars to hold better. (Note: Not all Kerr jars are smooth-sided. The jelly jars have quilted-texture sides.) Regular mouth Kerr jars are available in 4 oz (125 ml), 1/2 US pint ( 250 ml), 3/4 pint (375 ml), 1 US pint ( 500 ml), and 1 US quart (1 litre). Wide mouth Kerr jars are available in 1/2 US pint ( 250 ml), 1 US pint ( 500 ml), and 1 US quart (1 litre). The jars themselves are dishwasher safe. They take standard size mason jar lids and ring bands. Note that, as for all mason jars, if you want freezer-safe ones you need to look for straight-sided jars. The Kerr name for home canning supplies is owned by the Jarden company, which also owns the Ball and Bernardin preserving supplies companies (info current as of 2016.) Ball is primarily marketed in the eastern United States, while Jarden tries to preserve Canadian sales territory for Bernardin.
