Note: Due to the taller neck of this jar, the #70 Twist Top lid sits higher than on other similar jars and leaves a visible gap between the shoulder and the bottom of the lid. The below example uses our small straight sided jars.Comparing neck height between twist top and threaded jars

Love these jars!

The jars are... jars. They work well for the task, look nice, and my labels stick well to them, even in the heat of the candle burning. They hold about 7.5oz of wax before getting to the point where I fear they will spill moving it to the cooling station. The only thing to pay attention to is the texture on the bottom of the jar. If you are placing your warning labels on the bottom, they may have issues sticking or looking funny.

Decent so far

I am excited to try these as my order just came in. However, I am a little worried about the bottom with how well the warning labels will stick. Also, one of my jars came completely destroyed.

Excellent Jar

I recently started my candle making journey and have been struggling trying to wick some tins that I bought from another source. These jars were the first glass containers I've used and it's been night and day with wick testing when compared to my tins. First try with my wick testing and I nailed it. These jars are exactly what I needed. They're a great price, they shipped great (no broken jars!), and they're just so perfectly simple (in the best way). I also got the black twist lids to go with them and I love the look.

Best-Selling Candle Vessel

Paired with the #70 Gold Twist lids, this jar makes a really lovely, modern-looking candle. This jar is a breeze to wick and pour in. I use CD 12 wicks with 464 and a 9.5% FO load, which makes for a solid 30-35-hour burn time and an excellent hot throw. The best-selling of the vessels I offer to wholesale accounts and to retail customers alike.

Great jars! Happy they're back in stock!

Great jars! Just wanted to write a little note about what process works for me, because I see a lot of reviews on Candle Science complaining about product when I'm sure it's just their process that needs tweaking.

GB464 wax + CD18 wicks works best for me and give a full melt pool. Heating wax to 190ish, adding fragrance at 185, pouring at 135. Make sure all jars are warm when you pour your wax in. I even warm my pouring pitchers before I transfer wax from the wax melter into the pitchers. Keep the room you're pouring/curing them in warm as well so they slowly cool! I keep a small heater in the room and have it set to 75 degrees. Hope this helps anyone out there who is struggling! :-)

Every detail matters with candles, so don't give up! And don't be quick to write a review saying the product sucks before you make sure you're doing everything right...
