The Twist Seal Jar was invented towards the end of the 19th century by John Kilner in Yorkshire, England. It became a much loved, iconic design and is still used today. These jars have seen a huge revival in recent years, especially in the home baking, cooking, arts and crafts markets.

Our innovative ‘Twist Seal’ lock jars deliver that iconic English look without the sometimes cumbersome and easy to break latch mechanism which is also prone to leakage and staleness. Our lids twist and lock in to place keeping the contents air-tight and preserved. This innovation has a modern twist on the all-time classic glass alternative.

Our new ‘Twist Seal’ jars build upon the design but make it even better by retaining the quality, classic look and feel of the original Twist Seal jar, but with improved function and stability.
