This 4 oz. container is great for holding a large quantity of a spice in your spice drawer. The clear lid makes it easy to see what is stored inside. These containers are also available in a 2 oz., 8 oz. and 16 oz. size. While it is called a 4 oz container, please realize that all spices and blends have different densities, which means that the volume that it takes to make an ounce is radically different. For example, an ounce of basil is a very large volume while an ounce of salt is a very small volume.
