Established by John Kilner in 1842, England, the Kilner® business initially focused on producing glass bottles and jars. However, it wasn't until the late 19th century that the iconic Kilner® Jar was invented. Today, this original jar, with its distinctive pressure seal and timeless design, maintains the same popularity it had 175 years ago. Trusted by households worldwide, it continues to excel in preserving and pickling fruits and vegetables. In the 1900s, Kilner® proudly declared itself as 'the original and the best, all other brands are substitutes,' a claim that stands strong today, underscoring its remarkable heritage.
