Great for taking salad dressing, cream, applesauce, etc. to work. Glass = No BPA
on July 26, 2015
The size is great for my needs, and although the box says that they are considered "REGULAR MOUTH", the jars are short enough and wide enough that it's easy to clean inside by hand. The lids seem to make a tight seal. They are the two-piece "canning" type lids, with a flat metal piece and a ribbed "band" piece, not a single one-piece lid. I tried putting some water inside one, hand tightening the lid, and then turning the jar upside down, shaking it around, etc, and no water leaked out.
The box says the product is "Freezer Safe" and "BPA FREE". I wanted to make sure the BPA part included the lid, so I called the number listed on the box (800.240.3340), and after holding for quite a while was able to speak with a representative. She confirmed that there is no BPA in the lid, and actually said that NONE of their products have BPA in them. Take that with a grain of salt maybe, but it seems like it'd be legally dangerous for them to say that if it wasn't true, so I'm inclined to believe it. I didn't ask about BPS (another apparently-dangerous chemical), but probably should have just in case. I'm not even sure off-hand if it's possible for non-plastic lids to have BPS in them.
Two minor suggestions to the manufacturer: 1) Offer the same product with one-piece lids 2) Sell them in smaller quantities - at least as low as 6 per box instead of a dozen
