Close but not perfect.
I love that the storage jars are glass, the lids are easy open, jars are easy to hold securely with the big finger hole in the lid, I can easily fit my hand in for cleaning, there are no ridges in the bottom to get powders stuck in and they have built in measuring cups. Finally, they look great. So that is 6 good points in their favour.

I would have given them a 5 but I have two small issues with the jars. One, I find that the lids are a bit fiddly to get on. Maybe it's me but I have trouble getting the lids onto the threads of the jars properly.
Secondly, and more importantly since this is the main reason I chose them over wide mouth mason jars, the measuring cups built into the lids are of very little use. It was not until I used them that I realized that you can't use them for accurate measurement of dry ingredients because you can't level off the quantities and the full lid is not given a measurement. So, you still have to pour the powder into a different measuring cup in order to properly measure powdered ingredients. Why would you bother pouring your powdered ingredients into the lid then into something else after? If you do that, you just make a mess because now you have powder on the lid that spills onto the outside of the jar and onto your counter when you put the lid back on.
Simply giving a measurement for the entire lid would at least have given us one size to measure accurately.
Still, lots of positive features, well worth the money.
