    If not, can they be sanitized with K-meta?

    Yes it is needed to prevent mold spores form spoiling your jam. Use a boiling water bath for 5 minutes.

    Hand wash them and then run thru the dishwasher.

    I would just do the jars...no dirty dishes just in case the eggs over easy somehow travel and get stuck inside one.

    Don't forget the hot dry setting.
