i now use them exclusively .
they easily survive pressure cooking.
one advantage-- a hot needle will burn thru the lid, making sterile injections easy.
one disadvantage-- they are by nature more flexible than glass jars. it is possible to squeeze them, distorting the shape and breaching the verm barrier. so handle them gently.
i esp. lke the short square ones as they colonze fast & birth ready to case into pie pans.
i got a birdseed cake on it's 3 rd flush now, 1st flush was 8 gm dry.
try them, you'll like them.

Thanks guys I have tried the jars in the past and they are a pain in the ass to clean. It will be nice to just throw them away when I am done. Hey hippie3 have you tired to use the ramsey seal with these containers? and how deep is your vermiculite layer. also do you cover the holes with tape after inoculation. Thanks.

i don't tape the hols, which are very small. i do cover the holes/lid with foil and keep them in a clean area during colonization.
i don't use 'ramsey', too lazy.
i just cover with about 3/4" of dry verm.
since these containers are a bit flexible,
it does pay to be more gentle than you might with jars,
if you 'squeeze' one too hard while moving it,
air will enter as the verm. shifts to fill the newly created space.

If any of you are having trouble finding jars I posted a thread here a while ago stating that I am selling my entire stock of ball wide mouth one pint mason jars, I have one hundred five of them so any one who is having trouble finding them because of off season contact me by e-mail or private message and I will make arangements with them. Thank you.
