These mason jars have an embossed decorative band around the jars with flat oval areas for labels. The traditional, rounded square shape provides efficient shelf storage, the wide mouth facilitates packing fruits and pickles, and shoulders at the top of the jar help hold pieces beneath the liquid.
Screw bands can be reused, but SNAP lids are designed for one-time use only.

For best results, fill hot jar with prepared recipes, leaving recommended headspace. Wipe jar rim and threads with a clean, damp cloth removing any stickiness. Center hot SNAP lid on jar. Apply screw band just until fingertip tight; do not overtighten. After processing, remove jars from canner and set upright on a towel in a draft-free place. Do not retighten screw bands or check for seal while jars are hot. Cool processed jars upright, undisturbed for 24 hours. After 24 hours, check seals. Sealed lids curve downward and do not move when pressed. (Any unsealed jars should be reprocessed or refrigerated.) For all sealed jars, remove screw bands; wipe and dry bands and jars. Store screw bands separately or replace loosely on jars, as desired.
NOTE: Due to the presence of a "shoulder" on these jars, they are not recommended for freezing; lid colour and style not as shown in photo
