I got four sets of these jars to store my beans, pasta and other dried goods in and boy, they just look so good on my shelf with all the different products in them. I'm not too fond of the lids because there is a plastic collar and sometimes it stays in the lid and sometimes it attaches to the jar. Not a big deal now that I'm done filling them up and when I get something from the containers, I guess that it doesn't matter much. It was just a hassle when I washed them but it's minor. I'm hoping these last for years but if anything goes wrong it will be the lids and I would only hope if that happens I will be able to find other lids that fit. A jar without a lid is just a jar.
