Giveaway: Pint & Half Jars from Fillmore Container

Of all the Ball jars out there, the Pint & Half has always been my favorite. It holds 24 ounces, has straight sides, and always feels like just the right amount. I reach for one whenever I’m putting away leftovers, pouring a smoothie, stashing pantry staples, and making extra-long pickles.

When I first started canning, the Pint & Half was not currently in production and so I haunted thrift stores, antique shops, and eBay in order to amass a small collection. Then, in early 2012 Jarden Home Brands announced that they were bringing the Pint & Half back. I cheered! I wrote blog posts! I bought several boxes.

Today, I come bearing sad news. I’ve learned that the Pint & Half is going to become a collector’s item once more. Ball Canning has discontinued this useful vessel (cue the weeping). I am heartbroken that my favorite jar is soon going to become scarce.

I’ve teamed up with my friends at Fillmore Container to send this noble jar out with a bang. They still have a goodly supply in stock, but it won’t last forever. So this week, they’re sponsoring a celebratory giveaway featuring the Pint & Half.

One lucky winner will get $100 credit* at Fillmore Container, one case of the Pint & Half jars, and
two wide mouth iLids for easy access to your smoothies, quick pickles, and dry good (winner will choose lid color). What’s more, Fillmore Container is also giving away two more cases of the Pint & Half jars over on their blog. You have so many chances to win!

Please use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter! And when you’re done with that, head over to Fillmore Container’s blog to enter their giveaway!

*Store credit can be used for product or shipping, but once the $100 is used the winner is responsible for anything more than $100 including shipping.

    Laura K says:

    I have to admit I did not know there was a 1.5 size pint! I think they would be great for pickles, or salsa, or maybe even jelly (we eat a lot of jelly!)!

    I’ve never really used this size. ;-( I have used pasta sauce jars which I think may be 24 ozs. I do use the 12 oz for salsa and dilly beans. It sorta the same idea (1/2 way between regular sizes).

    I love the taller, 1 1/2 pint jars, and will be sad to see them go. This size is perfect for pickles and asparagus, and great for smoothies on-the-go. Hope they bring it back in the near future.

  21. 471

    Hope they come out with a replacement for the 1 1/2 pint jar ?

    Melissa Storms says:

    I have never actually used this size before but they would be perfect for longer pickle spears. The bigger jars are just too big for us.

    Great for smoothies, milkshakes, cold drinks. Fits ice cubes nicely. Useful for canning long veggies or fruit.

    Jeanny Smith says:

    These are great paired with a pour lid for sugar and powdered creamer. Or paired with a shaker lid when I have an overabundance of dried dill weed and basil.

  35. 485

    Bummer. These are my go-to for to-go iced tea. And coffee.

    Charlie Mc says:

    Oh, I love this size. It’s great for when you aren’t canning for a large group, makes portioning so much easier. Also, I use the few I have to make larger jars of our favorite jams.

  37. 487
    Brenda W. says:

    I bought 2 cases when they first became available, and have since broken or given away a few too many. I’ll have to stock up again! Thanks for the heads up.
