Commercial Straight-Sided Jars
These little jars are straightforward and practical, attractive and simple enough to dress up for use to hold gifts. Contents are easily visible. Great sizes and inexpensive!

Seal is not as described
I sought out these jars (8 oz size) specifically because of the "Plastisol" seal in the lid as described on the website. I bought them at the store without checking the lids. It wasn't until I brought them home that I noticed the seal is just the paper/cardboard type. Definitely not what I wanted or expected.
When I returned the jars to the store, I was told that the seals had in fact changed and that the Plastisol type would no longer be available. (The store still had 16 oz. versions with the good seal but those are larger than what I need.)

Simple and exactly what I needed
I was looking for small glass jars to store dried herbs and everything seemed either really excessive or really expensive. I finally found these and they are honestly just perfect. The size is exactly what I was looking for and so was the price. I really refused to pay $5 for a small glass jar. I have been pleasently surprised and the jars themselves have held up well even after some falls from the cabinet.

Love these jars!
I was looking for these specific jars after I saw them in a Martha Stewart magazine. She had them used as "vacation jars" with a gorgeous piece of coral or shells inside and I am going to use them that way too. They are the perfect size, and I love the nice white metal lid.

Perfect in a pinch
These jars are just perfect for my homemade face and body creams. I also store my empty gel capsules in one by my bed.

I had to buy this cute little jar. It fit perfectly with my St. Patrick's Day decorations, as I loaded it with green candy! These will come invaluable come the holidays when I can fill them up with all sorts of goodies for neighbors and friends! Thank you.

The jars are ok, I've only had them a couple of weeks and the lids are starting to rust.

Perfect cosmetic storage
I purchased these glass jars to house some of my cosmetics (lotions, scrubs, etc) that are my favorites but that, sadly, have ugly labels. They're the perfect way to combine function and aesthetic in bathrooms, on bathtubs, or on a vanity. Love!

Handy item for artist
I purchased these 1oz. glass jars for use as an artist supply. We use these jars to store brush cleaning liquids or medium for use when traveling outside the studio. These jars are of excellent quality and can be used a number of times before disposing. After time these caustic liquids tend to destroy the seals,but for the price that just fine. You will certainly get better use over those plastic jars you can buy at the local craft store. Would highly recommend this product for any number of uses.

I use these jars by the dozen for thank you gifts at work. They are exactly what I need to present a high-quality product in a high-quality presentation.

Perfect for homemade chapsticks and lotions
I bought the small one for homemade chapstick and the larger ones for homemade lotion and body scrubs. They are perfect and I'll probably use them for my homemade products when I give them away as gifts..

Exactly what I needed!
Started making my own peanut butter and the 16 oz jar holds 16 oz of peanut butter perfectly. It's easy to clean in between batches. Very durable.

Great for storing "touch-up" paint
I have used the 8-oz jars for storing small amounts of paint for touch-up purposes. Just place doubled plastic wrap (Glad, Saran, etc.) over the jar opening before screwing on the top. Label, including the date, and you're ready to store away. When you need to touch up those small marks on your walls, all you need to do is vigorously shake the bottle. (I just opened a jar of paint dated 2004 and the paint was in excellent condition.)

Great little jars
I needed small wide-mouth glass jars for my cat food. After much searching I only found places where I had to buy whole cases of jars or an exhorbitant price for a small order. Finally I stumbled onto the Container Store and was able to find exactly what I needed for a very reasonable price. I wish there were a store nearer to me.

Nice storage jars
These little jars are great for storing spices and herbs. They come in different sizes. I bought ones that are a little wider than the usual store spice bottles so that I could store a larger quantity of some dried herbs and spices and the bottle necks are larger for accommodating a larger measuring spoon. The containers have metal tops with fluted edge that are easy to grip to open -- and will not crack/break if they are dropped. The bottles are clear so that you can see the contents.

Commercial Straight-Sided Jars
Since I've discovered natural oils, mixtures and various herbs in my beauty routine. I was looking for glass jars and found these commercial jars. They are made well and surprising cheap in cost. I will be back for the 8 oz sizes.

NIce addition to spice rack
These jars have been useful in storing herbs from our garden that we've grown and dried. There is a variety of sizes making it easy to find one that suits our latest batch. The only downside is that they do not stack well, and fit a bit awkwardly into our spice rack (we use a rolling 4 basket cart for our spices/herbs). They're inexpensive enough to share with friends, too!

Great for Sprinkles, Candy, and Sugars
I use these in my kitchen for colored sugars, sprinkles, and candies I use when decorating cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. They are decorative and functional.

Glass is heavy enough, lid easy on-easy off for arthritic fingers, suitable for food. I use for spices and colored or flavored sugars in baking. Just add a label. One drawback is that most spices come in 1.5 oz. and the jar sizes are only 1 oz before it jumps to 4 oz. One benefit is that the 4-oz jar is wide vs tall so you can use measuring spoons in them. One caveat is that since they are not tall your cinnamon sticks do not fit. Do not put lids in water or the cardboard inserts will deteriorate. Reasonable price.
