Does anyone know who stocks Weck canning jars in Manhattan? Downtown preferred! Thanks in advance.

    Try giving Broadway Panhandler a call.

      Thanks so much. Sadly neither BP nor Sur la Table carry them.

        Bowery kitchen only has Ball, because I bought some there other day. Maybe JB Prince? Best of luck, Weck has such a great look to them.

      This probably won't help you out much now, but for the record I guess Crate and Barrel now carries Weck jars.

        West Elm carries them. I just ordered 4 of them online and 2 came broken. I bought them to give granola gift to my kid's teachers but I wouldn't buy them for myself. The metal and rubber parts are annoying as heck too.

          Just curious why do you prefer Weck canning jars. I've used Ball jars for years and love them. Is Weck better? or just different shapes?

            Two things

            -They have different shapes, many of them very different than Ball or other jars.

            -The lids are all glass, instead of metal. It's good for when you're canning or storing something that might corrode metal...glass is just generally more food-safe...as long as it's in one piece ;)

              And here's Weck's take on why their jars are different
