my guess, serious guess
they come in some package
they get gently tossed into a box
some texas air gets tossed in with it, no one looks to see if it is filled or not.
box gets sealed, off it goes
/8ball does that describe it accurately?
Outlook not so good
@kdemo@phendrick dunnage its a term know for packaging material when goods are packaged and ready to be shipped usually dunnage is placed inside carton. In most instances its empty packaging boxes with dunnage stickers or writing written on them. I’ve even seen raw scrap material used as dunnage before. What ever the manufacturer was going to throw out placed inside bags and used as fill to take up empty carton space.
yep, i have several high end ones i use to keep butter in the frig, love them, on the second one as i broke the lid (it was a more rigid lid the first one)
i also have some amazon edition, the seal is not as nice, but works, can’t say how long term.
I like glass too, but there is a weight thing, so i moved to plastics but you can’t really heat in them, cause they will eventually bubble.
so i’m thinking about it, not sure where i’d put it, cause some of the ones i have already don’t have a home, LOL
@dimwittedanimal I have the 5 piece set that I bought from here in January. I like them a lot. The lids have a silicone gasket and snap on tightly. I mostly use them to bring my lunch to work and I haven’t had any problem with leakage.
@dimwittedanimal I bought two of the 5 pack sets sold here in January. The glass seems pretty heavy duty and the seal is air and water tight. One lid did arrive broken and I use that glass container to hold sponges on the sink.
@BadTouchRobot@dimwittedanimal I also bought that set and liked them. That one had 5 rectangulars as I recall. This 5 pc is a mix of rectangular and round. I don’t recall the brand – is this the same brand as the Jan offer? I would buy more compatible with that last system, but I hate having too many different types where I have to sort out different brands of lids and containers separately.
@dimwittedanimal I have 2 of the 5-packs sold back in Jan. They seal really well, as sometimes if I put something hot in the container, close the lid, and then put it in the fridge, the seal is so tight it is actually hard to open. I don’t put the lids in the microwave.
@Collin1000 Thanks for the warning. My dexterity is not what it used to be, and we have a tile floor in the kitchen.
Last year my wife dropped a casserole lid that sent pieces of clear glass flying throughout the kitchen. We were finding shards for months. We recently got some kittens. They can explore places where humans can’t reach. They’ve found more pieces.
No kittens have been injured, but I have suffered the pain of removing glass splinters. The small ones are very hard to see even when there isn’t much blood.
@tweezak Thanks! That was super informative. A friend of mine used to work at a Corning sub-company and could buy their products for cheap. He’d buy me all kinds of cool stuff. I’ve lost a lot of it over the years, but I still have a few things, I love my giant measuring cups. I may actually buy this offer today because it’s borosilicate.
Why is the big pack only 5 more than the Amazon cost? Why not just get it shipped free from Amazon prime and if it sucks send it back with no hastle it extra fees? It could be here in w days for 1 extra dollar. What am I missing here meh? This seems like a literal bad deal.
@wendigee Well, for one, I don’t usually figure in the shipping since I pay the monthly fee (mostly because I buy wine). And you’re paying $10 a month for your Amazon Prime, so that’s not really fair since it’s not really “shipped free” but based on your membership, as this is also “shipped free” if you are a member. Also I notice my “Prime” 1-2 day shipping now often takes 1-2 weeks for some items. Your point is valid about the costs being close, but I’m just saying it’s not fair to add in the shipping cost to one site and not the other when both are free with membership programs.
Bought something similar by mail order a couple years ago. When the box arrived, it sounded like an old-fashioned radio sound effect device called a “crash box.” Returned, and purchased a better set, for less, at Costco.
These are the packages the UPS dudes love to play soccer with…
@admiralpoopants If you can wait, Menards and other box stores usually do great sales on similar sets during Black Friday. You can also keep an eye out as I’ve seen them on sale throughout the year. Maybe an Independence Day Sale or something too.
Boo … Boo … hiss… $1 less then amazon prime with 1-2 day delivery?Come on brah… this is not the Meh deal
we’ve all come to know and love. This is straight up retail. How dare you. I fart in your general direction.
