This clear plastic jar has a black lid and a shaker insert. This is the largest volume jar we recommend for home, personal use. We strongly recommend against storing and keeping more product on hand, unless you are a very high volume consumer. This 8 oz. container is great for holding that spice you call your “go to” spice. These containers are also available in a 4 oz., and 16 oz. size. While it is called an 8 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.
