Three decades ago, Bormioli Rocco , introduced the first ever preserving jar made of 100-percent glass. Today, the Quattro Stagioni Collection of home-canning jars includes various sizes of jars, bowls and even plates - each designed with charming old world Italian embossed decor and sealed with a signature gold metal lid. Quattro Stagioni is the leading brand preferred by consumers and the most used preserving jar in Italy. Quattro Stagioni jars offer many different uses in the kitchen, from storing dry food items such as pasta, flour, sugar, ground coffee or spices, to preserving fruits, vegetables, sauces or jams to keep fresh for up to one year - hence the name Quattro Stagioni which means "four seasons" in Italian.

Though not the product's fault per se, I did have some issue with how they were shipped by Amazon. The one with a blue lid came as a shattered pile of useless glass shards in a bag of bubble wrap and the one with a clear lid is scuffed/scratched up on the exterior. Box was marked Heavy as my order contained several other items but was not marked Fragile which is probably why it ended up like that.
EDIT: Amazon sent a replacement with no hassle. Replacement has blue lid, but is slightly smaller size. Not going to bother trying to get it replaced with correct size at this point, but shipping of these is very hit-or-miss apparently. I also ended up salvaging the blue lid from the destroyed jar to replace the clear lid they sent on the surviving 72oz.
This jar is listed as a 2L, 72oz (one came separately marked at 64oz- it was the same size, a 2L.. bit confusing:)
-- it stands 8.5" tall & about 4.75" wide. I have included a pic next to a 16oz peanut butter jar for comparison, hope that helps!
It is also hard to tell from the picture, but the lid is also glass & much prettier in person. These jars are just as high quality as the pitchers were. I will be buying more.
For those that have never used these kinds of containers before, it comes with a rubber gasket that you need to stretch over the lip on the lid of the jar before use (pic included)
***As others have posted, these are good for brewing & fermenting because the lids can 'burp'.
***An insert advises: "Gasket not suitable for contact with oily sauces, oily foods and foods with 100% animal or vegetables fat composition"- so keep in mind when washing or transferring oily stuff to remove gasket 1st (really easy)! Also, since the lid is attached with metal, when I wash it I tend to hand wash & dry immediately to keep from any potential rust issues. Never had a problem.
***More recently I have been using these to make tea/herbal infusions, which are stronger & more potent than just brewing tea: I put 2 or 3 tablespoons each of about 4 different loose teas/herbs, pour in boiling water, seal shut & leave to infuse overnight on the counter- I put a towel or trivet under to shield my countertop from heat (IMPORTANT- if you pour hot or boiling water & seal the lid as I instruct here, REMOVE THE RUBBER GASKET 1st!! As the hot liquid cools it creates a vacuum that creates a seal that's near impossible to break... Trust me). Then I strain through a nutmilk bag or strainer & SQUEEZE OUT as much liquid from leaves as possible. I then pour back into this vessel & keep in fridge or countertop, and add to my water for 2 or 3 days' worth of tea at a time. You can drink straight but only if you like strong tea! PRO TIP- don't throw your used tea away, it makes the best compost in your garden! Just throw on top of soil in your potted or garden plants, or mix in if you like.
I find so many uses for these containers & this size, I'm about to order a couple more to try my hand at sauerkraut, & the smaller sizes for fruit preserves! And for xmas I am going to get a few of the small sizes to make DIY maraschino cherries for a fun homemade present with beautiful presentation.
And, I wish the larger sizes came with blue lids,they do add a little color to the kitchen. Or maybe all blue glass.
But, as I said, I am not at all disappointed in the quality of this storage jar. It's good, heavy glass, with sturdy metal holding the lid on. I think it is worth the money paid for it and recommend it.
Pro Tip: We have purchased some of these from Amazon, but we have found them in various TJ Maxx and Marshall's stores as well for a fraction of the cost. We have gotten 3-4 quart jars for roughly $4.99-6.99. So, make sure to keep an eye out in those kinds of stores to save some money!
