These storage containers aren't cheap, but you do get a good product for what you pay. We ordered two sets years ago and they have lasted with no issues. Even with 12 full quart jars, the plastic does not bend, They stack together when no in use to save space. We ordered two more sets.

Great Product to store full and empty jars. This item saves me hours of washing time now I just have to sterilize because the jars are clean. They stack well and secure together, you can even seal the jar boxes to keep little fingers out.

Moving from the city down to a few acres, it is nice to be able to safely transport some canning jars AND have a bit of an extra storage system when I get there.

The plastic seems very brittle. I was taking the product apart from the shipping straps used to hold the 2 parts and one of the containers slipped out of my hand. It's fall was about 2 feet, but it shattered the entire hand hold. It made that part unusable.

Great idea but way over priced for recycled product. Most folks canning put up a sizable number of jars. I'm sure you would sell far more if you reconsidered your pricing. Suggest you offer discounts for quantities ordered.

If you have a dust free place to store your jars, you could use the top and bottom for a dozen jars each. Cuts down on the cost.

I've had a chance to use these canning jar protectors in extreme situations and in everyday storage scenarios. While my initial thought was that they were a bit pricey, I now find that the quality and apparent longevity will make them cheap in the end, as I transport hunt camp foodstuff into rough terrain high into the Rockies, and depend on every jar making the trip. At the same time, being able to pick up a dozen full jars in a foolproof container for temporary or long term storage, is invaluable to any canner who has spent the day prepping the process. I look at the initial cost, like I look at jar cost. Every time I use them, the cost goes down...

Would love to have these but would need way to many for home use. The cost is prohibitive. If they ever come out considerably cheaper, like someone else said, 10 for $20, then I would buy lots them.

I, too, think these look like they would be a good idea. However, considering that one often cans to save money, most canners can a large volume of jars and would need quite a few units, and that the boxes are made from recycled materials, they are quite expensive and would make purchasing them cost-prohibitive, unless, like another reviewer, you were to only purchase one for craft use. If the price should be drastically reduced, I would probably purchase some because I would like to have them.

Buy 3 of these and you're spent the cost of an entire stainless steel shelving system (300 pound load per shelf, 5 shelves) from Sam's club. Although they may be of the highest quality, the cost is prohibitive.

Looks like a very good idea. We do alot of canning so we will wait until we can buy 10 for $20. Product seems very high. Thanks

I ordered two of these for the jars where I keep my Ukrainian egg dyes. The trays are just as shown, and as advertised, they do lock into each other securely for vertical stacking. The material feels sturdy and I expect they will last for years. My husband and I had a temporary challenge figuring out how to get them open again after snapping the lids down onto the bases. It's difficult or impossible to just pull them apart, which is promising for security but not for accessibility. Turned out that the solution is to insert something like a dull knife blade into the latch and twist a little. It pops right open then. I'm very pleased.
