I bought these to use for glitter for soap making. They work pretty well, although the holes are a bit big for fine glitter. That's the only drawback, though. They're a good size, the tops are sturdy, and I expect to use them a lot for some time to come.
These do work good, even if you don't have the sealing machine. I contacted the company and they responded very quickly with an option. All you do is use an iron and tin foil. Place the sealing top on the bottle, then the tin foil and then place the hot iron on and press firmly while it warms the sealing agent. Then what I did was turn it over upside down on the counter and press gently while the seal cooled in place. It worked like a charm, and I am grateful to the company for contacting me back and instead of telling me I don't have what I need (i.e. the machine for sealing) they instead gave me customer service and told me an alternative to sealing without a special sealing machine, since I'm just doing this for myself and not selling spices or anything and don't intend on buying a machine. I'll definitely get these again. They are very nice looking and hold an adequate amount.
This set comes with 12 spice jars. The jars are 4" in height and seems to hold 1.5 oz.(that's how much cinnamon I could get in the jar) They are clear glass with black shaker lids. Each of them has a seal in the lids as shown below in the picture.
The seal for freshness seal would be great for spices that you are not going to be using and want to keep fresh like spices from your garden. I had to use twizzers to get the seal out of the top. I am going to use these for everyday use so I do not want the seal in the jars.
I think the chalkboard labels would be perfect to label these spice jars and if you decided to change out what spice you want you can just wipe off label and put new name.
This is a fantastic little shaker spice bottle and will likely replace most alternatives here including a few other Nakpunar versions that I've tried. I recently got this as a "new item" from their website and was pleased to find it on Amazon as a Prime item, and otherwise for about the same price. I will be ordering more soon. FYI, if you use a lot of these, the Nakpunar website does give discounts at 50 dozen or more, so price compare.
The bottle is all glass and the cap is a fairly sturdy plastic. Ideally, this is a bottle designed for those who are producing their own spice blends and either selling them or giving them away. Aside from the visible characteristics and strength of the bottle, it also comes with a heat seal liner. This is important if you 1) Are looking for something that looks professional and will give someone assurances of tamper-resistance 2) Something that will help keep the integrity of your product by keeping moisture out prior to use.
About the cap
This is a well-fitting high gloss black polypropylene cap with a smooth shaker style (flap) with 11 orifices in 0.125". This is about the right size for most spices. All but a very large coarse grain of salt would flow easily, though it would not work well with your average size dried herb like rosemary or parsley.
The hinged lid on the cap is well designed to not fatigue easily. This means it will open and even be abused for a pretty long time compared to other caps. I tested the cap threads by tightening it on the bottle with far more torque than you'd normally consider. Rather than bulging and stripping the thread like on some caps, this one just cinched down hard. I probably could have broken it if I tried, but I assured myself that this wasn't going to happen under even harsher than normal use. In a previous job, I have designed filling lines including capping units, and this cap would easily take any reasonable pressure that a commercial bottle capper might apply.
Temperature tolerances on this cap range from 10F-235F, meaning that under typical range of use from freeze through boil, it will not fail. I tested it in my 20F freezer and dropped it several times without fail. However, I also put it in my -5F freezer and dropped it and the cap cracked. Chemical resistance and impact resistance are listed as GOOD. Rigidity and scratch resistance is listed as HIGH.
The cap also has some form fitting edges underneath the lid. These are designed to help keep the lid from accidentally lifting when brushed up against something else like the pocket side of a grill apron. There is a bit of a snap to it to help keep it in place, but nothing that anyone will have any problem opening.
About the bottle
The bottle dimensions are W 1-3/4" x H 4" with a volume of 3.4 oz (110 ml). It's pretty much about the size of an average McCormick spice bottle that you would buy in the store. While it is glass, it is well built and sturdy. Other glass bottles might be in danger of breaking if you knock them around a bit to loosen up spices or accidentally drop on on the floor. As I've said, I purposely dropped this bottle a number of times, including on ceramic floors and there wasn't a bit of damage to it.
The upper 2/3 of the bottle is round and perfectly suited to receive a label and stay looking nice. The bottom of the bottle is slightly flared and has a few ribs. Cooks will appreciate that feature since it provides additional bottle strength and a grip for slippery hands. Overall, this is a well-designed bottle.
Edit: I have just reordered 2 dozen new bottles. I like to give away my spice blends and these are the perfect bottle to do this with.
