Storage Wars: Glass vs. Plastic

IT’S HERE! The fight night the crowd has been waiting for – Storage Wars: Glass vs. Plastic. 

We’re pitting the 2 giants of food storage & packaging together in a clash of storage titans. Who do you think will win?

Round 1 – Size, Shape

Ding Ding Ding. The fight begins; Plastic is looking much larger and his physique resembles that of a Spartan gladiator. His ability to change shape and move freely gives Plastic the opening session. 9-10.

Round 2 – Safety – (What is BPA?)

WOW! Glass drops Plastic to the floor almost instantly, although the challenger doesn’t shatter – the crowd are impressed by that. But as the round progresses Plastic is cut and bleeds BPA all over the canvas! A definite early victory for Glass. 10-8

Round 3 – Weight

Plastic replies well in the 3rd round – he takes the fight to Glass and dances majestically around, stealing the points with lightweight mobility. 9-10

Round 4 – Recycling

After the beating last round you’d expect Glass is almost out on his feet. But wait! The warrior looks good as new as the bell rings and goes on to dominate the worn Plastic to win the session. 10-9

Round 5 – Porous? 

The corner-men have been hard at work and Glass still looks pristine even after deflecting many blows. Plastic’s eyes are starting to swell and his face is crimson stained and weary. An easy win for the non-permeable Glass pugilist. 10-9

Round 6 – Oxidation

Glass is looking angry this round – he means business! Glass flips its lid and throws an almighty blow to Plastic’s body. HE’S DOWN! 1….2…3…the count begins from the referee.

Plastic is down and breathing heavily. As oxygen pours into Plastic’s lungs the count continues… 7…8…9..he can’t get up! 10!

Glass wins by a glorious knock-out. An accumulation of heavy blows hands the tougher Glass warrior the victory.

Spring Clean with Kilner

Spring Clean with Kilner
If you fancy a spring clean this weekend, here are our top tips to keep your kitchen organised and sparkling clean.

Glass is the best and safest option to store food in your kitchen, as it is BPA free. BPA is a toxic chemical used in the production of plastics.

Glass also enhances food flavours and repels odours and colours making it far easier to clean than plastic.

1. Organise your worktop

Kilner jars make brilliant work top organisers. Not only are they great to store frequently used items, such as rice and pasta but they also make beautiful vases.

2. Organise your store cupboard or pantry and label everything

Over the winter, you must have stocked up on plenty of delicious food to keep you going through the cold dark months. Now the spring has finally arrived it’s time to discover what you’ve got left and organise your kitchen cupboards with cute jars and labels.

Domestic Goddess Tip: Use glass Kilner jars to store food and spices. Glass jars allow you to quickly see what you have in your kitchen cupboards without having to open every single container to check what’s inside.

3.

If you have a busy work and home life, finding delicious recipes to cook on a daily basis can be tricky.

If you keep enough spices and herbs in your pantry, you can easily jazz up simple meals such as spaghetti into something rather delicious.

Kilner Spice jars

If you enjoy adding flavour to your recipes you will love our brand new shaker jar lids, perfect for spice, herbs, parmesan cheese and even sweet cupcake sprinkles.

Store dry food safely and then shake or sprinkle over meals. http://bit.ly/1HCj63M

Refreshingly Pure

There is nothing better than enjoying a cold glass of water after a workout, but are you aware of what might be lurking in your bottle?

Harmful toxins could be present in your drink if you don’t use BPA free containers.

BPA, Bisphenol-A is a chemical which is used in the production of plastics. Products using BPA have been in commercial use since 1957. BPA is also used to make linings of food cans which forms a protective barrier between the metal of a can and the food.

Storing your food in glass is proven to be your safest option, plus it will save you time and money. Here’s why:

Glass is produced from naturally abundant material and will not degrade over time.  Unlike some plastic products, Kilner jars and bottles will give you years of use.

Glass enhances food flavours. The natural glossy surface of glass repels food odours, colours and flavours so you can enjoy your homemade preserves and stored food to their full potential.

Money-saving and greener. Glass jars can be re-used over and over again for many purposes without deteriorating, offering you maximum cost effectiveness.
Glass eliminates food staining.  Do you scrub your plastic containers for hours on end trying to remove stains?  With Kilner glass jars, you will not need to do this, making life simpler.

Try infusing your water with lemon and lime for a citrus twist.
