Not sure why it took us so long to just buy a pack of mason jars for storing our food. They work a lot better than a bunch of random plastic bags strewn all over the cabinet. At a $1 each these jars are hard to beat. I noticed there were two types of 1 quart mason jars at our grocery store. KERR and BALL. The BALL brand were a little cheaper and had measurements imprinted on the side of the glass (1 cup / 2 cup / etc.). The KERR jars were a little more expensive and three sides of which had no imprint. The remaining side had a logo. I think I prefer the BALL jars with the measurements. I think it says on the BALL box that these jars were designed by the same people who made the KERR jars. What is going on in the mason jar world?
