Product Description

These sturdy, well-made jars are suited to a wide range of canning tasks, and many people think that they look rather nice as well, making them very popular among cooks all over the world. Good Le Parfait jars can get costly, but some people feel that it is worth the expense, as these jars are known for being extremely reliable and very easy to use. Le Parfait jars really are perfect for a lot of things, thanks to their design. A classic Le Parfait jar has a lid mounted on a wire hinge, with a locking lever to fasten the lid to the top of the jar. A rubber o-ring is inserted into the lid as a gasket, creating an airtight seal inside the jar which will hold until the lever is lifted, breaking the seal. It is also possible to find Le Parfait jars with screw-on caps. For canning, these jars are extremely useful. and because they are clear, it is easy to see the contents of the jar. They can also be used for more general kitchen storage; until cooks are ready to use the contents of the jar, and they can be easily re-sealed. You can also use Le Parfait jars for freezing, although you should be careful to leave a gap at the top of the jar to allow the contents to expand. If the jar lacks sufficient expansion room, it will explode when the contents freeze all the way, since the seal is too strong to allow the jar to simply pop open. Some people also use Le Parfait jars with special gaskets to make fermented foods; in this case, the gasket allows gas to escape from the jar, but not to enter it. The basic design of Le Parfait jars may not be terribly innovative or remarkable, but it has become associated with quality, both because the jars are often of very good quality and because they have become popular with gourmets around the world. Many kitchen supply stores sell Le Parfait jars, and you can also order them from companies which specialize in imported French kitchen supplies.

These containers are also perfect as cookie jars, storing grains (if in dark cupboard), etc.

[Edit: 4/14/2013. When I wrote this review, this item was well under 10 clams. Now it's double that. Which is WAY overpriced. You can get jars exactly like this and of almost the same quality at various dollar stores. It either seals tight or not, that's the only quality issue. This jar is simply not worth more than 10. Look around for the same type of jar, many folks make them, check that the lid and gasket are air tight, and save a ton of cash.]

Making kefir is so easy if you've got two of these. Put the kefir grain/culture in one, cover with milk, seal jar, let sit for a day on your counter, then simply scoop out the culture with a slotted plastic spoon. Seal jar and put in fridge, put culture in other jar, repeat!

There. That took less than a minute to read and do. Or, pay some online ripoff artist money to get pointless videos offering a more byzantine method that works not nearly as well.

Life is so easy when you take the time to experiment. I did and found this kefir method which I'll put next to anybody's. Cost: two of these (or similar) flip-top bottles and a slotted plastic spoon, which are a buck or less at any dollar store. Mason jars work too but are harder to clean and the mouth is not as wide. These are the best, believe it.

These containers are also perfect as cookie jars, storing grains (if in dark cupboard), etc. I love 'em; easy to clean, hard to break, last forever. I've had one for well over a decade and the grommet is still fresh, not hard. This brand is good but most are similarly fine. Just make sure to always wash the grommet inside and out.

Enjoy your kefir!

I love these jars. They're awesome. First off, they are pretty heavy glass, so they can take bumps from other items on a shelf without you having to worry about damage. They are very well-made with nice smooth edges on the lips of the jar, not all rough and chippy feeling like on cheap jars. As far as the seal, I've been using mine to store herbs and haven't noticed any real degradation of any sort so I'd have to say that the seal seems to be pretty good. The quality of these jars really is great for the money.

What can you say about a jar that is very solid, has a wonderful feeling locking clasp, and seals very tightly. How about worth every penny. Does exactly what it's designed to do efficiently and without concern. Will last for years and give dependable service. New gaskets will provide the new jar feel and sealing when ever needed in the future.

Le Parfait canning jars have been used in French kitchens for generations and are as popular as ever. There's a reason (or rather many): they're well made, resistant, incredibly durable, multipurpose and competely hermetic (the trick is to pull slightly on the tab after locking them). But a little expensive here... The Container Store (where they are marketed as "French Hermetic Glass Terrines) sells them at a fraction of the price ($3.99-$9.99 depending on size).

I'm very pleased with these jars. While you can use these for pretty much anything, I bought these to store homemade refrigerator pickles that are not meant to be made in volume. I initially started with one jar because it yielded the equivalent size of one batch. My recipe was easy, but the results were so good I tripled the output and make it once or twice a month.
While I guess I could have used Ball Jars, I bought these jars because they were heavy and I like the latching cover and the rubber seal. The lids fit well and the rubber seals leave everything secure. I bought a couple of extra jars recently to hold lavender infused Epsom salts.
While they work well they are also undeniably decorative, they clean easily and are dishwasher safe though I advise hand washing the rubber seals to prevent the rubber from drying out.

Can't say enough good things about these jars. They are all I have in my home. They keep food super fresh for a long time such as cookies and crackers. I do not use plastic so these are easy to put in the dishwasher and make my cabinets look more appealing than plastic bags and boxes. Will buy more in the future.
