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 ?burping? 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.

Seals very well
Great for heavier food items
Jar WILL tip over if left open
Gasket can be a little tricky to open
style of jar. So far the glass seem quite durable. I like the
wire hook method better than the screw down lid.
Have bought this product three times. Great transaction, product
arrived on time.:)
I drilled holes in the glass lids to make the ferment bottles. I discovered that the glass was a little thicker than expected in the lid so the standard silicone grommets sold for Mason jars that people use to line a hole did not fit - or at least I had to silicone the grommets in place because the glass was too thick to fit in the grommet groove.
The glass lids are not available, in small quantities at least, so if you do drill holes in them you have to be careful - using a diamond dust tip hole cutter, plenty of water lubrication to take heat away, and very slow grinding with little or no pressure applied. Start at a 45 degree angle to make a groove then raise the drill slowly to vertical (if you don't have a drill press). I used duct tape on the back side to cut down on splintering. That was just okay - in the future I am thinking I would paint the backside with an epoxy glue so I would not get splintering - then once the hole was drilled use a solvent to remove the glue.
I rated a "4" only because although I like the jars and would recommend them, I don't "love" them, would prefer a sleek modern look without the raised brand lettering.
