It’s not a true Kiwi-Kitchen without Agee
For decades, kitchen pantries across New Zealand have been stocked with Agee jars filled with tasty preserves. Even if you don’t preserve food yourself, there is still a good chance you have at least one of our jars stored away somewhere.
Now Agee offers more than just the humble glass jar. We have an exciting range of new serving and preserving accessories that will look great in any kiwi kitchen. They are available from popular homeware stores.
Preserving is a great way to store seasonal fruit to be enjoyed all year round – without all the preservatives and additives you find in store-bought tinned products.
More than just the jar you remember
Some of the most popular everyday kitchen tools are now on offer from Agee. In our new retro products, you’ll find a complete range of silicon utensils for non-stick surfaces, plus measuring cups and spoons. We also offer new storage and drinkware products as well as oven mitts and trivets.
Our vintage Agee brand has even been modernised and creatively applied to beautiful linen aprons and tea towels. You can expect to see more products added to the range over time.
The new Agee products will look great in your home or make perfect gifts for friends and family.
For food and everything else
Agee jars have been used for so many different purposes it’s almost wrong to call them “preserving” jars. For years they have been dressed-up as decorative candle holders and other craft projects, like wedding favours, terrariums and more.
Jars are secretly whisked off to the garden shed to hold screws and paintbrushes, usually without permission. Why? Because everyone knows how useful glass jars are!
This popular purloining of the preserving jar is one of the reasons Agee is branching out into speciality products. Although I don’t think we have plans for a paintbrush jar!
You already know the name…
The AGEE brand, so well-known in New Zealand and Australia originated in the 1930’s. So it’s no wonder that the Agee preserving jar is such an iconic fixture in so many Kiwi and Aussie kitchens.
With nearly 100 years of being the go-to solution for long-term food storage in so many households, the Agee brand is quite literally “preserving history”.
Agee storage today
As the modern kitchen has evolved far beyond what it was in the 1930s, so has the Agee brand.
In addition to our traditional preserving jars, Agee now provides a broader range of attractive everyday glass storage solutions. These include newly designed sealed jars, heat and eat bowls, a cool new drinkware range and more.
Get the kids involved. Preserving food is a great way to teach kids about healthy food options, nutrition and seasonal foods. It’s fun and educational!
