Jars are nice, and good quality. However, if like me, you wanted to use these to store dry goods, such as flours, you should note that the "oz" measurement DOES NOT equate with dry measure ounces. So my 48 oz of buckwheat flour did not fit in this "50 oz" jar. It would be better if these jars were labelled on Amazon the way they are on the bottom of the jars - in liters. These jars are 1.5 L, which equates to roughly 6.3 cups. I blame the US for not using the metric system, but I'm also annoyed at Amazon for not labeling these better. I also blame myself. Anyhow, these are lovely, they just won't do for my needs. You can see in the attached picture - this 50 oz jar is full, and there is still about 1/3 bag of flour left. :( Hope this review helps someone from making the same mistake I made!
Nuts taken out of the shell should be stored in glass in the freezer until use. These jars serve that purpose in my kitchen. As mentioned in other reviews of Bormioli Rocco Fido glass jars, you can probably pick these up at some chain stores for a lower monetary sum, but I suspect such a course of action to be penny wise and pound foolish, in many cases. Driving to Crate & Barrel entails wear and tear on car parts (future expense) plus nominal gasoline fees; however, more important than a couple of bucks is the time spent undertaking the task.
Love these jars. Have 4 of them now. Two have the blue lids. (kinda like that look) They only hold about 2.5-3 lbs of flour. I need to order some larger sizes to accommodate the 5lbs of dry ingredients. I was able to remove the clasps easily to wash and replace too. This size fits fine in my cupboard. I do like the square shape as well over the round for what I wanted to do. The larger size in square seem to be hard to locate. But, I will find them! :-)
