    Yes, the squareness is a bit of an annoyance isn't it? Probably not so much
    in a BWB but in a pressure canner where they're close together, I could see
    maybe having a problem. Of course, the squareness is an asset when storing
    them on the shelf because there's less wasted space.

    I researched them and they appear save to use for pc canning I never use my expensive mason jars for bwc when otc jars work fine little hint otc jars with nub lids and button tops are reuseable they are easier to use and fail alot less often the other day I made kiwi strawberry jam all my reused 2 piece
    lids failed luckily I had enough of the ten oz jars and nub lids on hand to correct this

    Default Question about those "Atlas" jars

    I just checked the Claasico website. The jars are NOT recommended for canning. I actually prefer using the 12 oz size as drinking glasses.
