Customer Reviews

It's very sturdy and of nice quality.
Sarah C. Ramos
The jar is very sturdy, with thick glass, the metal rings and clasp are tight, and the gasket is pliable and seals well.
Kathi D
I was dissapointed to find a few of these at much cheaper costs after the purchase though.

I use these jars for storing coffee, beans, cereal, and more. I have approximately 10 of these jars and have had no problems. After about 6 years, I had to replace some of the gaskets, which are available inexpensively. They are airtight, unlike many of the plastic jars. Glass is inert so there is no worry about contamination from plastics, though there is a possibility of breakage (knock on wood, hasn't happened yet.) Highly recommend.

The .5 liter jar is exceedingly cute in a chunky sort of way, very heavy glass, great quality. Under four bucks at our local grocery. I'm not sure if this style is really safe for canning but it's great for kitchen storage.

This jar has a lid/latch system that does not form any type of seal. As of 10/31/14, do not trust any reviews that claim it is "air tight" or can contain strong smells. The appearance of the lid and latch is extremely misleading in that the latch adds NOTHING to the jar... It is no more "sealed" when the latch is locked than when it is just closed on its own.

Not a fan. Will be returning this.

I ordered one of these jars to see how good it was before I place additional order. Works great with airtight seal but could be connected better. What I mean is that the lid is held on by metal wiring and it does come off regularly which is annoying. Definitely thinking of picking up additional jars.

Product Packaging: Standard PackagingSize Name: 17.5 Ounce
I purchased 10 of these about two years ago and this is one of the sizes I purchased. The Fido is an outstanding jar. This 17.5 ounce jar is a really cool size. It maintains the length/width of the larger sized jars, but has a much smaller capacity. So it matches the larger sizes, but now you have a smaller size that is useful for things you will not need or want a big jar for. I use this jar for keeping hard candy in it, as I love the size for this purpose.

I actually don't even use my Fido jars for canning as I do not can. The reason I purchased these was because over a 5 year period, I went through 4 sets of kitchen jars. Some were more expensive than others, but the reason I kept getting new ones was because none of them did a very good job in keeping food fresh. If the jar can't keep the food fresh for an extended period, that harms a lot of the usefulness for me, and I find that it can get expensive fast if you have to replace the food that is no longer fresh. So I went to a canning jar.

The Fido jars are made by Bormioli Rocco. They make a variety of products and I own quite a few. Every single product I have from them is of exceptional quality, and I purchased at price that I feel was an excellent value considering how high-quality the products themselves are. The Fido jar is no exception.

Made of glass, the Fido jars are an ideal material for all foods in almost all situations. Unlike plastic, it does not alter the tastes of certain foods. Unlike stainless, it does not have the potential to react if exposed to foods of lower pH. Unlike (most) ceramics, it is very affordable. Using a traditional plunger lock with stainless steel 'wire hardware' (similar to a traditional mason jar), a rubber gasket sets between the lid and body.

The jar is wonderful and seals well, my only very small issue with it is that the lid can come off if the back metal parts aren't secured very well. You can put it back on, no problem, but that's my only criticism. I would order the jars again, so no biggie!

I received this and very disappointed. The rubber gaskets are way oversized for the lid so they do not close without a lot of force. This is not acceptable to me. Returning asap.

Nicely made, but I was thrown off by the "17 1/2 Ounce" as I guess dry measurements are different than liquid??? I don't know for sure. But I wanted to put a 1lb. bag of coffee beans in there and it's way too small for this jar. I'm keep it but order 2 others of larger sizes to be sure I got the right size.
