Glass jars are an incredibly versatile and useful item to have in your kitchen. Whether you’re a professional chef, a home cook, or someone who loves to bake, glass jars can make all kinds of tasks easier. 

From storing ingredients to keeping baked goods fresh, the possibilities of what you can do with them are endless. 

Here are 9 of the best uses for glass jars in the kitchen—for bakeries, home cooks, restaurants, boutique chefs, commercial kitchens, and home kitchens alike!

1. Storing Baked Goods 

Keeping your freshly-baked goods away from air and moisture is essential in order to keep them tasting as delicious as possible. Glass jars, especially our 1 Gallon Jar,  provide an easy way to store your baked goods without having to worry about them drying out or going stale.

2. Refrigerator Storage 

Storing food items in glass jars is a great way to save space in your refrigerator and keep everything organised - check out our 380ml Jam Jar. They’re also much more durable than plastic containers, so you don’t have to worry about cracks or other damage over time.

3. Freezing Ingredients

When it comes time to freeze ingredients like herbs or nuts for future use, glass jars are ideal because they won’t leach any unwanted flavours into the food while it’s freezing.

 4. Prepping Ingredients 

When you need to prepare ingredients ahead of time for a meal or recipe later on in the day, glass jars make great vessels for prepping them ahead of time without taking up too much counter space. We think these glass jars are perfect for just this purpose!

You can fill them with dried beans or rice for an eye-catching display that adds colour and texture at the same time.

 6. Infusing Liquids

Want to take your cocktails or mocktails up a notch? Try infusing vodka with fruits and vegetables in a large glass jar and let it sit overnight! The result will be a unique flavour that packs a punch - make sure to take a look at the 1ltr Mason Cocktail Shaker here.

Small glass jars make great presents when filled with homemade jams or jellies that you can give as gifts during holidays or special occasions! Plus they look pretty sitting on any shelf when not in use!   

8. Making Sauces and Dressings 

Making sauces and dressings just got easier thanks to glass jars! Simply measure out all your ingredients directly into the jar then shake until everything is fully combined – no blender required!
