Kuhn Rikon Stackable Storage Jars Review

I was recently sent some great looking Kuhn Rikon storage jars to review.

Look how cool they are!!!

 

Anyway, without further ado, onto the review!!

 

 

Cost: 4/5
The two larger jars are £7.95 each and the smaller are £4.95.
At first I thought this was a little pricey but after some research on the market, that seems to be the general prices for similar jars. At least with these you get some extra features like stack-ability and style.

 

Size: 5/5

With four different sizes to choose from you won’t be left disappointed.

You won’t really need a jar smaller than the smallest nor one much bigger than the biggest.

 

 

Ease Of Use: 4/5

What can be easier than a twist top? But this twist top is not like those jam jars that are nigh impossible to undo. It is extremely easy to open and just as easy to close the lid.

Style: 5/5

I love the look of the Kuhn Rikon jars, nothing better than actual glass jars so you don’t get the taste of plastic on your food and there is something so modern looking about the mix of glass and bright coloured lids.

My only moan is that I wish each size came in each of the colours, the mix of all four colours may work in some kitchens but it would be nice to have the option to have all of the sizes in one uniform colour.

Pros:

  • They look amazing and they stack, perfect for smaller kitchens!
  • Very sturdy. No thin, brittle glass here. (Please don’t take that as they are indestructible.)
  • Very versatile.
  • The jars can fit in each other for easy storage.

Cons:

  • Not watertight (I presume that means not airtight? please let me know if I’m wrong!)
  • Lack of colour co-ordination.

 

How I tested and used the product:

To keep cut fruit:

Sadly the fruit did brown a little, this was about 4 hours later.

To make tsukemono:

As a serving bowl:

Yep, that’s right I used the largest jar to serve some ramen.

It contained:

  • Ramen
  • Boiled egg
  • Mushroom
  • Carrot and
  • Donner meat

It was delicious!

 

So overall I Love these Kuhn Rikon jars, it’s a shame they’re not watertight (airtight?) but that only means you can’t fill them with soup and carry it around with you, which I think the likelihood of anyone actually wanting to is pretty slim.
