Airtight seal or as good as, too wide for standard spice racks
on 24 August 2011
A. Opening/closing seems fiddly but it reassures me the jar is airtight or as good as; have had several for over a year and no damp's got in yet.
B. The jar has an attractive shape.
C. It takes a reasonable quantity, and obviously things other than spices too.
D. As it's clear you can easily see how much is left.
E. Easy to attach a sticky label to. I de-label using a fingernail under the label edge plus dilute white spirit.
F. Handwash, though I once washed a jar OK in the dishwasher top basket but hand-dried it as soon as it was washed, and I needed to replace my label.
G. You can build up a set of jars that's your own and not that showing the name of one or more herb/spice supplier.
H. You can buy matching jars in at least one larger size.
Recommended but please be aware:
(1) The Amazon page I'm submitting this review to sells only one jar not three as pictured.
(2) Jar's width doesn't fit standard spice racks. This means having to think about storage or adjusting/replacing an existing spice rack.
