Subject: Canning Jars

I am going to bake cakes in canning jars. I am trying to find the quilted crystal 12-oz canning jar (#14400-81400) and I can't find these in any of the local stores I've been to in the Beavercreek, Ohio area.

Can you please advise where I might be able to find them or can I order these jars directly from your company. Also, why don't you have your products listed on your web site along with an order form???? This would make it so much easier to order stuff I need without having to shop around multiple stores trying to find an item! Thank you.

The web site you found is our corporate web site, which give you general information about all of our companies. The web site for Alltrista Consumer Products Co., the Ball brand and Kerr brand canning supply people, is under development. We will have it up in a few weeks. The online shopping should be available sometime next year. In the meantime, you can order direct from us by calling 1-800-392-2575 between 8:30 and 4:30 EDT M-F. One of our associates will be happy to help you. We must also caution you that we do not recommend baking cakes, brownies or breads in our glass jars. We have not tested them for safe shelf-life, and there is a chance of breakage caused by thermal shock."

I am putting this here and linking it to each "JAR" page. If I am going to have these recipes I think it is my responsiblity to post this warning with them!!

Thank you
Vanilla Mae :)
