Fell in love with these beauties when I saw them online. Was simply head-over-heels after reading all the rave reviews & couldn't wait for their delivery. Had been looking for large glass, air tight jars to store a few staples. These were the answer to my dreams. NOT! First was broken hearted to when one of the jars was broken. Pulled out the remaining two & my heart was completely crushed. The glass is that cheap, heavy & thick glass. The fact that they are sturdy and won't shatter at the first little bump is a definite plus, but the glass itself has bubbles, albeit few, seams are visible, the ribbing is as such where it looks more like lines running through it instead of like ribbing (which I've seen in others & done well) and they are improperly formed. I was okay with the off symmetry of the set, but the glass has waves in it. The waves in the 2 jars I had were random & 1 in an odd place, so as to know it isn't part of the design. There was also a big streak in one of the jars. As mentioned, the lids are air tights, but they are flimsy feeling and one of the lids knobs was improperly molded and was at an angle. The raised decorative ribbing around the lid on tis particular jar was improperly formed as well. The back was raised and slowly decreased to almost flat in the front. Quite frankly it looks sort of cool, the angled knob & the way the ridges were malformed sort of gives it a modern look. However, this set doesn't lend itself to a modern look & it was only one out of 3 lids. No offense to those who loved these, but these are really poor quality or maybe I just got a really bad set? Put it this way, when speaking to the customer service rep said that if UPS doesn't pick them up within the specified time that I can keep them.... I laughed. I wouldn't even keep them for free! Too bad....they would have been perfect.
