RE: [Histonet] cracking jars


I have found that if you use borosilicate glass jars, you get better mileage out of it.  They are the ones with the round seal at the bottom of the jar, and are also green-yellowish in color.

Hi  histonetters!

In answer to Rita's question:  I sure have had problems with cracking coplin jars.  I'm trying to make a switch from microwave to steamer, but am being foiled by shattering jars.  I've been using the same basic approach as Rita.

Would love some imput,
