An awesome high quality jar with a stainless steel mesh lid. A nice product at an amazing price.
*Please note that the natural pigmentation of the seed coating may leave "rust" looking stains on the lids. We have done significant testing and be assured this is not rust. Due to the nature of the design you cannot take them apart to clean. If this "rust" looking staining troubles you, take a small brush and scrub but natural staining is normal.

this is a great jar... good size for our family we got the 2 L one. the only thing is I wish it came with a small stand.. but no big deal I use a bowl.
Good jars, nothing out of the ordinary. I've been using them for more than a month now. The product details say that what looks like rust could appear on the lids but that isn't rust, some kind of stain caused by the sprouts. I mean I'm not a scientist but I have clearly rust on mine. The last time I'd purchased a jar from Mumms it had a plastic lid and obviously it works better for the purpose of sprouting. It's only my opinion, I know most people try not to use plastic at all but since the jar is made out of glass I don't see any harm.
Almost gave up on sprouting before finding these jars. Makes the whole process clean and easy. Have the large size for my favorites and a small one to try new seeds.
I use it for grains and beans when I only want a short sprout: for breads, soup, chili or stir fry. This size is too big for salad sprouts, for my purposes. (prefer 2 smaller 1 lire jars in rotation) The lids fit well and, the screen is fine enough to manage small seeds.
This jar enables me to grow a good size quantity of each seed that I want. Once grown I put the product in a tight snap container and start another one.
