As many of you have noticed, we have been using a new brand of glass jars for our different recipes over this last year. From Fermented Honey Garlic to Homemade vegetable stock, Pearl Jars have been our go-to option whenever we need to preserve or store food.
Known for their high quality and versatility, Pearl Jars are perfect for preserving homemade jams and jellies, storing pantry staples, and more.
In this review, we'll take a closer look at these jars and tell you why these have been our only choice since the first day we tried them.
One of the first things that caught our attention in the Pearl Jars is the different lids this brand offers. At first, this might not sound like something different from other brands, but after a closer inspection, we realize that the system used in the Pear Jars is a game-changer.
The lids on these jars are like an ecosystem. Explaining this simply, you can use any lid you want in the different jars available. For us, this is one of the significant advantages of Pearl Jars. In contrast with other brands, where you have different jars for different uses, here you have a set of different closure systems that suit multiple purposes.
For anyone used to making compotes, pickles, and kimchi at home, you know how frustrating it is to buy a new set of jars just because you need a different lead. With the Pear Jars, the days of purchasing jars for your various projects are over. Do you want to preserve your freshly made strawberry compote? Just use the Original Luna Preserving lead. Or maybe you just want to start growing your nutritious sprouts? Swap the Original Luna Preserving lead for the Original Luna Mesh, and you are good to go!
This brand offers six different and innovative closure systems that fit into different categories. Some closures are specifically for canning, while others are for food storage or fermenting. To know more about these closure systems, read our interview with Lukas Boettger - Co-founder of Pear Jars.
Before diving into the different jars and lids we have been using, we first want to discuss something common to the Pearl Jars ecosystem. The build quality of the various products is something worth mentioning. We have been using them in multiple projects, and everything is just like new. We are very impressed by the quality of the stainless steel and rubber gaskets.
Now, let's talk about the Pearl Jars's products. Starting with the jars, this brand offers two main canning jars, the Mariposa and Luna Preserving.
The Mariposa features a swing top endowed with a convenient opening mechanism. A notable benefit is the secure attachment of the ceiling gasket to the glass cap, preventing detachment and thereby promoting a more hygienic canning environment.
The Luna Preserving showcases a traditional screw cap, a two-part closure, and a detachable (not glued) ceiling gasket that remains secure. Both closures ensure food safety, constructed from high-quality stainless steel and without other additives. Additionally, the Luna Preserving incorporates a designated slot to facilitate effortless vacuum release. With this slot, the days of struggling to open jars or damaging lids when opening the jars are over.
As mentioned, using the Luna Mesh Lid can quickly transform the Luna Preserving Jar into a classic sprouting jar. This means you can easily make your sprouts at home. This lid has a ceiling gasket that holds the closure and mesh together, allowing for hygienic water drainage.
The last closure we have been using is the Sunny Cap. This closure presents a timeless screw cap container featuring a stainless steel ring and glass cup that offers visibility into the jar, making it suitable for storage and fermentation purposes.
Pearl Jars offers a collection of glass jars and leads that seamlessly blend elegance with functionality, making them the perfect storage solution for preserving and displaying various items.
