The main differences are:
You cannot fill these jars past the base of the neck of the jar. So if a recipe calls for 1/4 inch head space you will have to ignore that. Since I live at a high altitude and you have to add more head space at higher altitudes anyways, it really isn't an issue for me.
You are to screw on the lids tightly, but not too tightly, which is basically the same as with Ball jar lids. These lids are BPA free however which gives them a big advantage. Plus, it's just easier to manage a one piece lid.
After you have process these jars for the time called for in your recipe, you are to move the water bath canner off the heat and allow the jars to cool under the water in the canner until cool enough that you can remove them by hand. You are to handle them by the jar only and not by the lids. This is important because the sealing compound on these jars is still pliable until they have been completely cool for a bit. So, if you are processing multiple batches you shouldn't use these since you have to let them cool for awhile on the canner before removing. I typically do small batches so this isn't an issue for me.
Once they have been filled and processed you cannot stack these jars for storage. Also, the manufacture adds that these are not meant for pressure canning.
So there are definitely some big differences when using these jars, but for me the differences don't really change much about how I do things that matter to me. I prefer a one piece lid and I love that they are BPA free. That being said, these jars that take the 70mm lids can be used with the regular mouth 2 piece lids from other companies.
Pros: The size and shape make them easy to hold. They're cute. The lids are one-piece, so they don't come apart, stick, or fall in the floor when I open the jar. The lids twist on and off easily without binding or making screechy noises. They're cute!
The only downside is that I don't think these are airtight, so a few spices that I rarely use sometimes get all hard and I need to use a spoon to mix them up again. I had this same problem with the store spice containers, so this is no worse. Plus, I go through a lot more spices now that I have these, so keeping spices fresh is not a problem for me.
By the way, you can get these at the Container Store if you need to supplement just a few jars, but buying them by the dozen on Amazon is a much better deal. The first time I ordered these, one of the jars came broken. I contacted Amazon and they refunded my entire order and let me keep the other 11 jars for free. Great customer service, which is why I love Prime.
Finally, you can also get larger sizes of these jars for those spices you use more frequently. For the most part, the 5 ounce jars are perfect for most spices.
