Some of you know exactly why these are bad jars. Unfortunately, I didn't know when I stocked up on glass storage jars many years ago. See that pretty little taper at the top, where the jar opens? It won't even fit a standard 1/2 cup dry measure, let alone the 1 cup measure I usually use. I was sensible enough to get wide-mouth jars for my flours, but now I'm also stuck with these somewhat annoying ones, too. I don't feel totally justified in replacing all of them, but what to do? Start measuring out beans with a 1/4 cup measure? I think not.
Just a mini-vent. Not a big deal in the scheme of the world or in my narrow sphere of housekeeping, but a wee daily annoyance.
