Giveaway: Fillmore Container $50 Gift Codes

June 15, 2015(updated on October 3, 2018)

Just some of the fun gear at the @fillmorejars booth at the PA Farm Show!

This week’s giveaway is sponsored by Fillmore Container. They are a jar distributor based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and they sell a whole world of jars, accessories, lids, cookbooks, and other great gear.

straight sided jars

Two lucky winners will each get a $50 gift code with which they can order anything they want from the wide array of gear that Fillmore sells. While the choices are entirely up to the winners, I thought it might be fun to suggest a few of my favorite things from their online store.

First up are the jars. They carry the entire line of Ball/Kerr jars and have often been my source for my beloved wide mouth half pint jars. However, because they also sell to commercial canners, you can also get fun, unbranded, smooth-sided jars. I particularly like the squat regular mouth half pints and the super smooth quarter pint jars you see pictured above. If you want jars that will take a label nicely, these are your best bet.

For even more exotic jar options, there are always the hex jars. These close with lug lids and give your home canning a professional look. For instructions on how to work with these jars, make sure to read this post. Another fun jar in their stock is the French Square Bottle. I love these for stashing batches of homemade iced tea.

jar cherry pitter

If you’re all set on the jar front, there’s still fun stuff to be had at Fillmore. I am a huge fan of this old-style cherry pitter that screws on to a regular mouth mason jar. It makes quick work of pitting cherries and catches all the pits right in the jar. For those of you just starting out with this whole food preservation thing, the six piece canning set should be the first thing in your shopping cart.

If you have a 4th of July party on the calendar next month, think how fun and festive it would be to have a jar of these red and blue paper straws out to go with your drinks. If you’re sipping out of jars, pair them with these one piece lids with drink holes to prevent spills.

4th burner pot

Last, but not certainly least is the 4th burner pot. Fillmore Container just recently added this sturdy little pot to their inventory and I couldn’t be more pleased. I use this pot as a small batch canner, for heating pickling brine, and as a blanching pot for little batches of beans and asparagus. When not canning, it gets pressed into service to heat stock for risotto, to bring water to a boil for iced tea, and to hard boil eggs. It’s one of the hardest working pieces of cookware in my kitchen.

This week, Fillmore is giving away one of these handy pots, so make sure to head over to their blog to enter.

Here’s how to enter the giveaway for one of $50 gift certificates!

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me how you’d spend $50 on the Fillmore Container website.
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Saturday, June 20, 2015. Winners will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, June 21, 2015.

  • Mason jar mugs – lots and lots of them. All kinds of jars. Some of those pour toppers. I could get carried away at the Fillmore Container site, if I won the store credit.

I bought jars that we are putting coffee ( very Seattle) in burlap bags with thank you tags that say “let the love brew with the perfect blend” tags. I haven’t bought the lids yet though. Trying to budget and spread things out :/!

  • We started bee hives this spring, and the $50 would be wonderful towards buying jars for honey! Although that 4th burner pot intrigues me as well. SO much to choose from!

  • Seriously! How would I spend $50 in your store? I have made one purchase of jars for wedding favors for my daughters wedding but I had some time to look around a bit at what you have to offer. I couldn’t say for sure WHAT I would spend it on, but I wouldn’t have ANY trouble spending it! 🙂

  • I’d love to have that 4th burner pot! Plus, I’d use that gift certificate to purchase your book, a spice funnel, and some of the amber bottles. I’ve been wanting to start making my own extracts & cordials, but keep forgetting to get the bottles for it! Okay, so that would be well over the amount of the gift certificate, but those are the items that would be on my Wish List if their website had that option. (I want to keep the ‘favorites’ list for stuff I’ve tried and will use again.)

  • Oh My Gosh, what couldn’t you do with a Fillmore Jar or accessory? I recently became a Beekeeper and found Fillmore, a match made in heaven. The hex jars are perfect for honey presentation! Friends and customers love the look and the customer service from Fillmore is the best! Quick delivery!

  • My niece is getting married and I am helping to decorate on a very, to nothing budget. She wants canning jars with flowers, canning jars with lights, canning jars with candy etc….. I’m asking all my friends to borrow theirs, but what I’d definitely get from Fillmore, would be the pint size jars and smaller. Those are hard for me to find.

  • We are planning our upcoming country themed wedding. We are going to be purchasing the 16oz mason jar mugs from Fillmore Container and the $50 credit would really help in our wedding budget 🙂 We are ordering from NY and the shipping is so expensive, so we have decided to take a family trip (with our 2 & 4 year old) down to view the area since we hear it is absolutely amazing. The credit to the store would be an added bonus!!!!

    labels would look and fit so much better. The cherry pitter seems handy as well.

  • On the one hand, I could finally own that Kuhn Rikon fourth burner pot that’s been on my Amazon wish list forever. On the other, there are so many pretty jars. Oh, who am I kidding? It’s definitely the pot first, then either a couple of jars or the cherry pitter to finish off the order.

  • I’d really love to pick up some of the new purple Ball Heritage Jars, I’ve been eyeing them for months.
