Quattro Stagioni Canning Jars
Great Jars for Smoothies!
I purchased these for the large capacity, wide opening (easy to clean) and because they seemed sturdy (they are). Wasn't sure how I'd feel about the solid lid, but I love it -- we've had several for more than a year and with daily use, no leaks yet. The 34 oz jar is great for drinking large smoothies with a straw. I also store carob powder and shredded coconut in a few of these and keep them in the fridge. They look beautiful.

Used the container for a valentine's day present! It was perfect for what I needed.

I love these jars. Nice and heavy. Food tastes so much better stored in glass. Because of the raised embossed design on the outside, they are easy to hold, even when wet.

Beautiful and Functional Jars
I love these jars. I have every size. I use them mainly for storage: Flour, Rice, Spices, Nuts, Pasta, etc - basically anything I want to keep as fresh as possible for as long as possible. Love the beautiful designs on the jars and lids are very well made. Looks beautiful in my pantry. Love that they are made in Italy.

Love the one piece lids
Most canning jars come with a 2 part lid, so that part of it can be reused the next time. For the most part that is fine, but when giving a gift I especially like to use a lid that is only one piece and these fit the bill! The Quattro Stagioni jars are also beautiful and come in a variety of metric based sizes.

RECENT ORDER AS GOOD AS ORIGINAL
Ordered Quattro jars for storage of bulk baking ingredients - chips, nuts etc - and pasta. Had purchased some of the Quattro bottles several years ago [for juices]. Unlike so many products these days , the quality of this recent purchase is EVERY BIT AS GOOD as my original Quattro buy. Sturdy jars and lids that will serve my purpose perfectly.
SOAPBOX ALERT: My dad always said "Only rich people can afford to buy junk..." Never a truer word spoken. When will merchants and manufacturers realize that most people WANT QUALITY and are generally willing to pay a REASONABLE price in order to ensure that they won't have to buy the same item again in a month or a year? I hope Container Store will continue to deal with manufacturers like Quattro who maintain a high level of quality in their products from year to year.

I LOVE these jars. They keep everything fresh so that I'm not wasting my money on food.

Bought this because it is similar to a Mason jar that my Husband wanted. Tried it out and it serves the same purpose as a mason jar, except that the top does not have a hole to insert a straw. Would've purchase more, but need them for entertaining purposes.

Classy Cheese Shakers and More!
I discovered that a well-known brand of shredded/grated cheese has lids that will fit the smallest size jar! Looks much nicer and cheese stays colder/fresher. You can use these for fresh-grated, store-bought, or anything else you'd like to shake on food.
I use all other sizes (including the Spice Jar, #10014857) for storing dry goods in my vintage glass canisters. I can still use my old canisters for display (which have NO seals and are not air-tight), by keeping contents safely inside these glass jars.
No more worries about breaking my vintage canisters while washing since using these jars.
I keep spares of each size to handle any overflow storage for pasta, rice, etc. Great for just about anything, and pretty with the design on front.
I like how there are 2 lid sizes (and replaceable!) that will fit the 4 sizes of these jars. Some food items can retain smells, so it's a plus that new lids can be purchased for the same jar.
I use CS's Erasable Food Storage Labels (#454090) for expiration dates on the lids or on the back. Easy to see and remind you of freshness.
The possibilities are endless with the jars!

practical and adorable
perfect for countertop containers. the large i use for granola. the one that is similar to old milk bottles i use for nondairy creamer and sugar, and they sit next to our coffee maker. the smaller i use for bee pollen, also next to our coffee maker. friends rave that it not only is cute but also different. i love that it's affordable and not made in china!

Purchased the largest jars for my dry goods (beans, rice, popcorn, etc). Look great on the counter and keeps items fresh.

Pretty for homemade food gifts
I purchased these at Christmas to hold spiced pecans that I made for friends and neighbors. The jars were pretty and came in different sizes. I tied a festive ribbon around the neck and attached a gift tag to the ribbon. Voila! An instant holiday gift!

Can't beat these for your home pantry!
Everyone wants to save money these days. Buying in bulk and then storing in Quattro Stagioni Jars the way to go! I have them in all different sizes for beans, popcorn, pasta, grains, etc. They are beautiful and ecomonical. A must for the modern pantry!

Serve their purpose
These jars fit their need for me which is to use for homemade pesto sauce. I don't use them for traditional canning. I have attempted to seal with them for the sauce but a bit of the sauce leaked out when heating, perhaps because of the nearness of the sauce to the top. This also allowed some water into that jar. Since I don't do canning this was probably my fault and I'm not sure Pesto Sauce is a good item to try and seal like this.
Regardless, the jars are a nice way to package the sauce as gifts to others.

Great assortment of jars
I love how this brand/collection has almost every size you could need. I also like the lids don't get rusty in the fridge, and they are made in Italy, so they are high quality. Super affordable!

These are solid, air tight jars with a nice curved shape and well sealing lids. They are worth the price for something that is high quality and can come in so many sizes. If you get the labels, they stick well but can be moved if needed.

Great little storage jar for my open pantry. I need something that looks neat and clean and these jars do the trick!

Rusts After A Few Uses
Love the container store. But these jars are only good for DRY FOODS. With all wet and liquid foods, the lid rusts after a few uses and is useless. I dont want to put food in a rusty jar. I will try the hermetic jars next. I received these as a gift.

Great XMas Gifts
Every year I give away jars of my homemade granola. Friends and family love the Quattro jars (and my granola) that I use. They tell me that they have a collection of beautiful jars which they continue to use for other things. (I have yet to get one back filled with tasty treats.)

Great Vanilla Sugar Canister
I made some Vanilla Sugar for my Creme Brulee - this container was perfect for it!
I am definitely a huge fan of the container store now!
April 27, 2012
I bought about 15 of these jars to keep all my nuts organized on the kitchen counter. I eat a lot of different kinds of nuts! These jars seal tight and look great.

Glass keeps nuts fresh
Bought these for storing nuts that I buy in bulk. Keeps them fresh plus it"s easy to see what's in these clear glass jars. They come in several sizes so you can use the right size for whatever quantity you have. They fit in a deep drawer we use for snack items. A much neater and safer solution than plastic bags. I like these much better than the jars with rubber rings. They are easier to open and there are no rings to deterioate.

Versatile & Pretty Storage
I want sturdy glass containers instead of plastic to avoid toxins and petroleum products in my kitchen and home. I love these jars and have come back for more twice already! I also like that the lids fit standard canning jars with rings and bands. I don't need the two-part lids and find them cumbersome to use, wash and store, so I'll be buying extra lids for my other jars. I use all sizes of these jars in my freezer, refrigerator and pantry to hold all kinds of things. I find I eat less because I'm not trying to "finish up" the bits left in a packageâ¿¿they'll stay fresh and easy to find in the jars. The containers are pretty, too!

Good looking jars
I have purchased this to contain some items for my house. They are great - and it comes in different sizes so you can coordinate your kitchen with it.
July 17, 2011
I haven't used these for canning but I use them to store all kinds of food items. They are attractive and close tightly. The wide range of sizes is perfect. I have gotten rid of all the plastic in my kitchen and now use these and other glass canisters for everything. Highly recommend these!!

Classic, useful and inexpensive!
These jars are classically designed, very useful and inexpensive. I purchased them originally to use as gifts of dry bean soup mix, and would buy them again to store beans and other dry foods. They are practical for food storage and beautiful to display. Definitely worth the investment!

great for small-batch canning
I used the littlest size for my jars of apple butter this year, and they seal beautifully and look great! Just tie the top with a ribbon and you have instant gifts.

Who knew it would be so hard to find a Mason jar! After searching a couple stores and the net, I found these glass jars on Container Store's website. I ordered them (along with some other items) and chose the in store pick-up option which was a breeze. It works well for what I needed it for.

The Best Food Storage Jars
These quart-size Quattro jars (and the smaller 17 oz.) are the perfect size for storing soups, granola, nuts, etc. I keep buying more as I find new uses for them. They feel good in your hands and look beautiful in your fridge!
