Let’s get started!
The Baire Bottles spice jars are your average spice jars. While there’s no major selling point or unique quality to these jars, that may be the best thing about them. They’re larger in size than other jars on this list (8oz) and are made of a BPA-Free plastic. The plastic lids have two openings: a large opening for pouring or a teaspoon, and a shaker. Although these bottles plastic, they’re still very sturdy.
Out of the box, these jars don’t have sifters placed on them. Instead, they come with 14 shake and pour sifters, as well as 7 course sifters for your larger spices such as red pepper flakes, steak seasoning, Italian seasoning, etc. allowing you to choose what you need. As an added bonus, a silicone funnel is included to aid in refilling your jars.
These glass spice jars are very unique, although they may not be the most practical for your grilling needs. They’re quite small (3.4 oz), and have attached, hinged lids. The biggest downside to these jars would be the fact that they aren’t shakers. When you’re grilling, you don’t want to be messing with unlatching, scooping, and latching a lid back. You need something that you can easily access and pour. That being said, these jars are very pleasing to the eye, and if your spices are going to be on display on your counter, we love the look of these jars quite a lot. If you’re planning on storing extra spices you use for more than just grilling, these may be a great option. While they may be tedious when you’re grilling, they would suit your daily cooking needs perfectly well.
The Talented Kitchen magnetic spice tins are another unique option. These tins are magnetized on the bottom, allowing you to stick them to your fridge or any sort of metal table or surface. The lids have a tight seal, with two openings (one for pouring, one for shaking). They have clear lids, making visibility into your jars possible if you aren’t one to label your spice jars.
The Ball Mini spice jars are slightly different than your typical Ball jars, only for the fact that you can’t use them for canning. Other than that, you’re receiving an extremely high quality jar that is durable and sure to be a talking point in your kitchen.
