1. These Weck jars are straight-sided with no inward-curving "shoulder" near the jar's mouth where splattered starter and flour tend to collect in non-straight-sided jars, inviting bacterial contamination, making clean-up harder and limiting visibility.
2. These jars are straight-sided, but shaped not like a straight-sided cylinder but instead like an inverted truncated cone: The mouth of the jar is substantially wider than the jar's base. The result is a jar in which it is easier to pour contents (e. g., water, flour and starter) straight to the jar's bottom, avoiding spillage and splashes onto the interior sides. A woman's fist might fit easily into some straight-sided cylindrical jars, but not my hand or the hand of most adult males. With these Weck jars I have no difficulty reaching inside to allow me to wipe the interior walls of the jars clean for good visibility of the jar's contents at all times: A very desirable feature.
3. The 0.5 liter size is a good compromise-- the best I know-- for the purpose of making and storing sourdough starter: Not so big that it robs precious real estate from the interior of the refrigerator when stored, but not so small that only impractical limited volumes of starter can be inoculated and developed over time.
4. The price is reasonable: Not dirt cheap but very reasonable in my view.
You can't beat it. If you find something you think is superior for this purpose, please tell me and the rest of the world.

The jars advertised here have a loose gasket that you're supposed to place on the thin top of the jar and then place the lid on top and clip it with two separate, unattached clips -- all without shifting the gasket at all. And, no, it doesn't work. And the clips are silly, too.
If the jar is just sitting there, it looks great. If you have to open and close it for anything, prepare to be angry and wonder what the hell the designers were thinking.
Also be ready for one of the clips to fly off across the room if you don't happen to hold it just right when you remove it.
In Florida we always fight tiny mealybugs and such, so these are great to store the remnants of an opened bag of cornmeal or pasta. (it helps to freeze any grains for a few days before opening, then use and store)
