I purchased these for dry goods storage and appreciate the tight seal, uniform look of buying multiples and super function. Around a pound of almond flour, for example, fits in this size. I also purchased the .50 L 6-pack and together they have such a stunning look, especially when filled with nuts, almond flour, seeds, etc that I may leave them counter top despite limited counter space. I have them stacked, only two high, but three would be sturdy as well. Glass is thick, seal is tight and rubber ring is quality. Nothing cheap about these...and hey, they are Italian-made ( a perk in my book). They match exactly with the same brand .50 L jars, though the online photo here looks different - no tint at all to the glass. Also, they come well packed, no breakage...they are so sturdy, I dropped one on the linoleum floor and it did not break! GET 'EM!

Unfortunately customs in the U.K.held the delivery of package up. When it did arrive two of the jars were damaged, but we managed to swap lids thus resulting in only one useless jar. I informed the company of this by email and my complaint was dealt with very quickly and satisfactorily. Thank you for a great service.

These jars are classic and look great storing items on my countertop. I use them for lentils, rice, flour, brown sugar, etc. They are perfect. Fast shipping, packed really well. No damage. I will probably be ordering more jars in the future, just taller sizes next time. Overall, exactly what I wanted.
Package arrived very well padded. Item dimension as indicated in text (not image). Good quality STORAGE jars, not for canning use. For comparison shoppers: fido designs are not stackable, unlike le parfait. The fido mechanism holds the lid a bit closer to the jar than le parfait, such that fido closes tighter but needs the gasket in place or else the glass lid will bite into the jar rim, whereas le parfait closes neatly without gasket, which is useful for storage without the need for a tight seal.
