FIDO means "loyal and trustworthy" in Italian, and the FIDO canning and storage jars are just that. Surprisingly low prices on these top of the line - ULTRA HIGH STRENGTH FIDO jars. The HercuGlass process produces glassware that survives abuse that shatters ordinary glass. You can spend this much for the unstrengthened versions.
This is the classic rubber ring seal. These jars are made in Italy and used extensively in Europe for canning. Designed for Water Bath or Pressure Canning.

Who should buy the HercuGlass Treated Jars?
- If you are giving gifts of your fruits, jams, veggies, or other canned goods, using the ultra-high strength HercuGlass is a great way to say that you think the recipients are extra special. We provide a card detailing the HercuGlass treatment - something that is sure to impress your friends.
- If you have ever broken a canning jar.
- If you plan on using these jars multiple times. Most glass gets weaker over time. The extra high strength of our HercuGlass treated material makes them less prone to scratching and weakening.
- If you are, like me, a little klutzy.
You can also buy the jars in the "un-strengthened" state. They are still reliable and less expensive, but of course more prone to breakage. Either way, you will love these jars.
PLEASE NOTE: The strengthening process takes time and if we do not have inventory we will ship within 7 to 10 business days after receiving payment.
The capacities shown are given to us by the manufacturer. They are in US ounces, are approximate and are figured to overflow +- 5%.
