Are you looking at an attractive price for an outstanding freezer container? If so, let’s pick up those plastic Ball Jar freezer jars. This collection includes two 16-ounce jars, and the price is very reasonable.
The lids are lightweight and leak-free, thanks to EverSeal Technology. The soft-touch rubber makes opening and closing the lid convenient for you. The leak-proof lid has a translucent core that helps you to quickly see what’s inside.
You can extract the frozen food from the jar effortlessly with adjustable sides. This substance is safe to use in the dishwasher, but for the microwave, it is not safe. I’m mildly surprised by this poor spot.

Microwave Protected Ball Freezer Jars?
For defrosting or heating food, plastic ball freezer jars should not be put in a microwave oven. The package mentions that the freezer is secure, but that the microwave is not safe, so I can not use it in the microwave.
Likewise, would you place ball jars in your freezer? Yes, in mason jars, you will freeze. First of all the breaks appear to be safe and preserved unchanged by the frozen liquid whenever the barrels try to have an earth shatteringly good time in the fridge.
You remember, can you place a ball jar in your microwave, too?
A: Yep, as long as you remove the lid and screw cap, Mason jars are very safe for microwave use. All glass jars make canning a breeze as simple as a few seconds in a microwave to please your family.
Yeah, it’s easy to freeze glass!
For the fridge, glass is a perfect option, but you need to continue with caution:
Pick containers and jars for meal prep that are branded ‘freezer safe’
Do not reuse old jars of food to freeze.
Ensure the food is thoroughly cooled prior to freezing
Leave space for expansion (no more than 3/4 complete is a safe guideline to fill)
Leave lids from jars ajar or temporarily off before food is fully frozen
Do not throw glass into the oven or microwave straight from the fridge.
Glass Quick Freezing Tips
- Cool the Broth of Your
Before ladling into the pots, a perfect way to start is to cool the broth, then absolutely cool the jars of broth in the fridge before freezing.
There are two things this does:
When you line them with broth, it won’t shock the jars (that means making them such an immense change of temperature that the glass shatters), and
By ladling the boiling broth into jars and pouring it on yourself, you won’t burn yourself. Not that in my kitchen such a thing will ever happen.
- Less broth that you think is packed with
This is a very basic mistake to make, and in the past, it was my worst mistake.
When loading them up with broth, I used to leave 1-2 inches of headspace in the cans, assuming there was plenty of room for it to spread before freezing. Although it will also smash and crack most of them. I felt stumped.
It points out that when filling the pots, it is not the top of the jar that you need to be careful of. They’re the shoulders.
You have to make sure that the broth remains below the shoulders as it freezes and spreads if you ice in a glass container that has shoulders. Which means that before you stick it in the fridge, the broth should be 2-3 inches below the shoulders.
When freezing in glass, stop these typical errors and never again see another container shatter!
- Using Mason Jars from the Big Mouth
You should use big mouth mason jars, instead of using normal jars and thinking about the shoulders.
Bonus tip: many organic or natural peanut butter products are sold in wide-mouth glass pots, ideal for freezing smaller quantities of broth! With this quick 2-ingredient cleaning paste, you can also get the labels and glue off the jars while repurposing them.
The best for freezing broth really are these big mouth jars. Because they lack the shoulders that other jars have as the broth freezes and spreads, the container is not placed under pressure. I don’t have much of these, so when I go to freeze the soup, I look for them first.
Someone also told me that, right in the fridge, they stick warm broth in large mouth jars with nary a glass casualty.
- Loosely Cap
They tend to crack most often when jars are closely capped prior to freezing. The jars hold up well if you just loosely put the lids on before the broth is fully frozen. (When storing food in barrels, these lids are extremely handy.)
You should tighten the lids until the broth is frozen, if you recall. If you forget, it’s not a big deal, though. I never believe I’ll do it!
- Leave Room in the Freezer For Jars
Jars that touch when put in the freezer tend to crack more quickly, too for whatever reason. There’s another simple solution to this problem: just leave a little space between the jars when you place them in the freezer.
