My favorite spice jar:
- has a full 4-fl. oz. capacity, not the 3.97 or less that others do
- has ridges on the rim for easy handling while cooking
- is well-made, solid, easy to clean and work with
- is affordable
Warning! Most commercial spice jars, for some strange reason, are slightly smaller than 4-fl. oz., and therefore my jars may not fit into other racks or storage you already have. My jars are 1.9″ wide x 4.2″ high.
Sifters are available, but I strongly discourage using these – you should never sprinkle spices directly into your cooking, the heat and steam from your cooking will leave moisture inside the spice jar and ruin your spices very quickly. Sifters are really only for things like salt and pepper and seasoning blends used at the table, not at the stove.
