Quattro Stagioni 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.

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.
