These jars are the best if you care about food preparation. I plan to use them for chutney-gifts-sealing is important so there is no spoilage. They are very attractive jars. I am happy to have quality jars.

These jars are great! Air tight and very trendy sitting on your counter. You can use them for just about anything. I see them all the time on the cooking shows. Must have Bormioli Rocco!

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.

The size, shape, and thickness of the glass are perfect 'fridge' storage jars for the sauerkraut and chutney recipes I am working with. They also make great 'bug-proof' shelf storage containers for your 'overstock' items. Love them!

These are excellent jars--heavy glass with tight fitting tops that are perfect for storing pretty much any kind of dry good. I highly recommend these as a reliable, tasteful storage solution in the pantry or overstuffed kitchen cabinets.

These have been my standard kitchen storage jars for the past 10 years, and with good reason. They're solid, they seal well, and they're easy to maintain. (I should admit that I do a very limited amount of canning, so while I've used them for canning, my review is for the average kitchen cook, not the canning enthusiast!) The jars can be washed in the dishwasher, as long as you remove the wire fasteners. (The wire fasteners aren't dishwasher safe. If you try it, you'll find that they discolor and corrode. However, the glass can stand up to dishwashing as well as canning sterilization processes). The rubber gaskets can be replaced independently, although in my experience the only time you'd need to do so is if you store something particularly strong in color or taste in the jars, like say: coffee beans. Unlike some cheaper gaskets, I've had good luck with my gaskets staying pliable. All in all: I love 'em!

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!

I'm very satisfied with my choice of using Overstock.com to purchase my Bormioli canning jars

They're jars... not much to say there. Packaging was a little fishy (and technically an illegal use of USPS boxes) but no damage resulted.

This jars work very well in keeping whatever it is you want to be kept fresh. I would not have bought them if I could have found a cheaper price but I am still satisfied with the jars. The price is outrages but if you get tired of looking and really need them these are the best.

I loved these jars, they really helped organize my pantry. They seal well and I like that I can see everything now

given as a gift and it was very excitedly opened and now used daily in my daughter-in-laws kitchen.

I love these bottles. I ordered the 1-liter this time. Have received and love my 3/4 liter, 3 liter, 2 liter, and 5 liter jars I store all by shelved foods and refrigerated foods. I love the fact that I can see what I have in them and am sure that everything will be kept fresh. I have not preserved anything yet, but will use these jars when I do.

These jars are wonderful for storing food products, especially in areas that have humidity. We have a home right on the ocean, so I store crackers, cereal, etc. in these jars and they last far longer than they do in their original packaging. I also prefer storing items in glass rather than plastic. These have been perfect - very nice quality, secure lids, and they keep everything so neat looking.

I use them to store pistacios, dog cookies on the counter and lemonade in the fridgie and I love them for that. A bit of an off label use, but it works for me.

Moving close to the ocean after years in the desert presented a new problem: keeping cookies, crackers, etc. fresh. These jars have been the perfect answer. I have them in three different sizes and plan to order more.

I was very pleased with my jars. I was looking for a sugar and cream dish but didn't like any I found anywhere. When I came across these I was real happy and when I received them I was completely satisfied and think I may order more of different sizes for other uses.

Excellent quality glass - the metal tarnished quickly when washed in dishwasher.
