At the end of the 18th century in Paris, French inventor Nicolas Appert merged comestibles and chemistry to create a method of preserving fresh food. He discovered that, far better than salting, smoking, sugar preservation, alcohol marination or vinegar pickling, heating food in a hermetically sealed glass container preserved fruits and vegetables longer and more efficiently. In honor of himself and his discovery, Appert named the process appertization. To this day, this is widely recognized as the best manner of preserving food.
Saving the fruits of your labor is simple with Le Parfait Jars. The metal twist cap creates an airtight seal to prevent unwanted air and moisture from penetrating and keep items such as soups, fruits in syrup, pickles or vegetables as fresh as when they were pulled from the soil or stove.
Beyond preserving, the roomy jars are also perfect for storing your pantry goods, such as pasta, cereal, coffee or any other dry goods you want to keep fresh.
Le Parfait Jars were created for pickling and preserving food, but they can also be used to store dry food such as lentils, rice or other grains. Alternatively, use them to store leftovers or as a to-go container for your next potluck or picnic.
Le Parfait glass jars are intended for both water bath canning and pressure cooking, and will withstand the high temperatures required to create proper vacuum seal, sterilization and elimination of food pathogens.
Glass is durable but requires proper handling and care to maintain its beauty and functionality. Clean the jars and lids with hot water and soap. Avoid using metal or abrasive sponges. After cleaning, rinse the jars thoroughly with hot water and let air dry. To ensure the airtight seal, replace the metal twist cap before each preserving event.
Founded in Reims in the early 1930s, Le Parfait has been the symbol of taste and freshness for nearly a century. Made from durable glass, Le Parfait Jars preserve your provisions in the safest and freshest way possible. Unlike plastic or other materials, glass will never leach into your food.
Natural, fully recyclable, resistant, waterproof, and flavor-tight, glass is the safest and most versatile of containers.
