If Ball jars are the reliable Fords of the canning world, then Weck jars are the Audis: sleeker, European, and with a hefty following, except for instead of their turbos, people love them for their BPA-free glass lids. Before you're elbows-deep in preserving summer produce this year, consider taking the German classic for a spin. Before you do, though, read up on its history (turns out, the real Mr. Weck didn't even invent the jars) and check out this great tutorial from Food in Jars. We think canning just got classier.
