The original Kilner jar, first invented by John Kilner and Co in the 1840s in England, is as much-loved and successful now as it was 170 years ago. Its long-lasting popularity is owed to its unique pressure seal, iconic design and overall quality. Put simply, households all over the world trust it to successfully preserve and pickle their fruit and vegetables. In the 1900s, Kilner presented its innovation as ‘the original and the best, all other brands are substitutes’, a claim which remains as relevant today and is a testament to its impressive heritage.
