Garden Trading Square Glass Storage Jars
OK for anything that doesnt need airtight storage
These containers are definitely not airtight so if you plan to store anything like sugar, do not bother! My sugar has hardened within a week to a solid lump which I won't be able to get out of the container without pouring water in! I'd guess these containers would be Ok for something that doesn't need to be stored airtight such as dried pasta.

very bad quality!
I wondered when I bought one of these why it was so inexpensive and have just discovered the reason, the glass is extremely thin and the bottom has just crumbled as I placed it on the kitchen surface. not very good seal either!

Bad quality they do rust straight away
The metal round the rim does rust after they are washed for the very first time; I opened them yesterday, rinsed with warm soaping water and stood them to dry and today they are all rusty. Given that they are not airtight either, going from other reviews on here, they seem like a really shoddy product to have on here. very surprised by this.

Pretty jars - but not airtight!
I bought quite a lot of these pretty jars to use in our holiday home for storing brekafast cereal, pasta, tea, coffee, sugar, etc. Although they look very attractive I'm afraid that they will need to be replaced because the rubber seal doesn't do it's job properly.
We now have damp cereal and clumpy sugar which defeats the object entirely.

These jars come in many useful sizes and are easy to open and close.
They look good, however, the metal around the rim does rust after washing.

Look lovely but having followed instructions that arrived with jars to wash first all the metal has gone rusty! Will be returning them which is a shame.

practical and attractive jars.
I really love these jars. They not only look great as the colour of the lids is so good for matching up with greens etc they are just the right sizes and they look even better when they are full of pasta, rice pulses etc.. I could not believe that they are so well priced either. Jars of this quality are usually much more expensive. I have had mine for quite a while now and I have not had a problem with the seals at all.
