Keen to know which brand to buy? Or want to share a great purchase with the rest of us? This is the place to do it...

Can Douwe Egberts coffee jars be used for preserving pickled onions?

The lid is glass with a plastic suction bottom, see pic http://britishonlinesupermarket.com/acatalogDouwe_Egberts_Pure_Smooth_Coffee_100g.jpg

Thank you

Jars.

I'd not think so. The seal on those jars does not even last properly to use all the coffee, let alone re-using them for something else.

Hi Pippy, I've used these jars for all sorts of things - I hate throwing anything out! If you aren't sure of the seal, put a couple of layers of celophane or cling film over the plastic seal or run a little candle or sealing wax around the rim - that should keep the air out.

I love these jars! I wish we drank more coffee so that I could have a greater stash. I use mine to put chutneys and homemade mincemeat in them. Perfect size for gifts. I just make sure I use the proper wax discs and cellophane to get a good seal.

I've certainly used them in past for chutneys and pickles and seals seem pretty good. They look good too
