Love these jars!!

We use the 12 oz. status jar for both our marble candle line and our dessert candle line and customers love them. Very sturdy glass with an appealing look. We pair this with a gold tin for a luxury look on our marbled line.

Jars a great

So far I'm loving these jars. I use coco/soy wax and currently testing out different wooden wicks. My only thing is the jars say they hold up to 12 oz of wax but I've been getting 21 oz. Is there something I'm not measuring correctly?

Love Love these Jars BUT.....

I really love the status Jars but I am having wicking issues. Im using c6 wax and the wick guide told me CD 24 which once I received knew it was entirely too big but I gave it a try and the flame is crazy high so that's definitely a NO GO. I tried eco 14 and 12 still no good:( Guess I'll try eco 10(fingers crossed). or even double wick with cd 8 wicks, worth a try.

Hey Karle, thanks for reaching out! A member of our Customer Support team will be reaching out shortly via email to assist. Looks like using C6 wax and our 12 oz Status jars, we recommend starting out by testing our CD 14 wicks. We look forward to working alongside you to get optimal results!

Defects on lips of jars

Received my order of 5 cases of jars.
12 jars from that order had obvious defects on the lips.
Candle Science and Libbey (I contacted them separately) refused to fix the problem.
I've been using this product for years and get the product labeled as made in China, Columbia and USA.
This is the first batch this bad and it's from a USA plant. Went back and checked all my jars from China and Columbia that I received from another distributor, and they are perfect.
A sad day when a company and distributor don't stand behind their product nd it's inferior to imports.

Lovely jars but…

I really love these jars BUT I have a hard time centering my wicks. Because of the outer edge on the bottom of the jar it’s hard to eyeball the center and no one makes a wick placement tool for this jar. I also double wick this jar sometimes and that’s hard as well. May have to look into switching jars unfortunately.

Lovely Jars

These are such lovely jars, I just cannot seem to have any luck finding a wick with the use of 464 soy! Used the suggested wick size and got no luck ):

Customer's Favorite

These Jars are the staple of my business. Clients love the clear glass and the ability to see the flame. Also, I have many clients that love to recycle and return the jars to me. They wash well and are able to be reused over and over. And, thank you for keeping us posted through the Libbey shortage.
