Le Parfait French Hermetic Glass Terrines
My husband purchased this product to store our Keurig K-cups in.
It definitely keeps our coffee fresh and the kitchen coffee-smell free.

Just what I was looking for!
Love these jars! I decided to recycle all my plastic and switch to glass. After hours of internet searching The Container Store won the bid. I bought 4 different sizes, 25oz, 12oz, 7oz and 4.4oz and found that the 12oz is, by far, the most useful and will definitely be purchasing more! The first thing I did when I got them, was drop one right into my stainless steel sink, and not a chip or crack! The seal is tight as well. No more having to go through each container in my fridge to see what's in there or worrying about BPA's leaching into my food! And I've cleared out a whole cabinet of plastic! The Container Store shipped in a timely manner and they were carefully packaged. Their customer service is prompt and professional. I've found a new place to play!

Perfect for Homemade Gifts
This weekend I had a pancake party, and as parting gifts I gave away homemade pancake mix and used these containers. They have great latches and I'm confident they will keep the mix fresh until my guests decide to use it. My guests were thankful for the mix, but more excited to be able to reuse the canister. I'm thinking of buying a couple extras for myself! The glass is thick and sturdy, they don't feel fragile at all. I wouldn't try it, but I think if you accidentally dropped this from a short distance, they wouldn't break. Great product! The only thing I didn't like is that since they are straight-sided (not completely round), the latches are not always centered on the same side. Not a huge deal, but I'm a little picky when it comes to presentation.

These Terrines are amazing
They are pricey, but they should last for many years, and probably decades. We store about 20+ different products in them - coffee beans, ground coffee, wheat bran, wheat germ, malted milk powder, cheese powder, baking powder, baking soda, and more.
I love the wide top for measuring and the air-tight seal.
The advantage of these over the other hermetic jars at the Container Store is that these are stackable and have the wide top. The stackability makes them so much better. We still use the other large ones for rice and pasta, but the French Terrines for everything else.
