Square Hermetic Glass Bottles
new use for kitchen bottles
I wanted something other than the ugly mouthwash bottle on my bathroom vanity, so I knew the Container Store would inspire me. I decided to purchase the Square Hermetic bottle. I also came across the tiny 6oz Cruet with stopper, and thought, that stopper would be great for the mouthwash bottle, so I also purchased it as well. After removing the wire and stopper from the Hermetic bottle, I replaced it with the Cruet stopper to make a stylish mouthwash bottle for my bathroom

I bought these bottles to use for homemade vanilla extract, but before I get to the bottles, I have to comment on the WONDERFUL packing done to get these bottles to me safely. If the box had been picked up by a tornado, I don't think a bottle would have had so much as a nick--bubble wrap was used generously. I will definitely be a repeat buyer. They also arrived very quickly.
Back to the bottles...they are the perfect size for my project vanilla extract project--vanilla beans fit perfectly (I sliced them lengthwise to expose the seeds). The bottles hold a little over a cup (perhaps a cup and a half) with a little comfort margin at the top to prevent spills. The lid closures appear to be tight and secure.
I would recommend these bottles for projects such as artisanal vinegars, pepper sauces, spice extracts, oils, etc. The bottle mouth is wide enough to accommodate jalapeno-diameter peppers and is still in proportion to the overall bottle size.

Perfect Gift Bottle!
I two of these bottles to use for homemade hostess gifts during the holidays. The recipient was blown away by the beautiful gift. This bottle serves as the perfect container for an infused beverage or oil to show off the flavorful and decorative contents within. It is very large and I love the geometric detail of the squared edges - this little extra detail differentiates it from a typical bottle. The stopper is extremely tight-fitting and will not leak or spill when shaken or tilted. This bottle also beats others of the same size in price by about three dollars as well, and those other bottles do not have the square edge detail either! I went back to purchase more to give as gifts and they were all sold out! Next year I'll be sure to scoop them up quickly before the holiday craze begins.

I bought several of these to make kefir soda, and they look and work beautifully! Could not be more satisfied.:)
