Perfect Sealing Job For Beet Shrub
That's the reason I bought this bottle, a couple of them. I wanted to learn to make the vegetable drink and knew it required a bottle that would hold a secure seal. I couldn't find any such bottles at my local natural foods store, where I had previously found quality glass items, so I looked on 2DayDeliver. I needed a thick glass bottle. There are cheaper ones available on 2DayDeliver, but they are lesser quality, with thinner glass. I don't want to risk having guests handle a thin walled bottle of my beautiful juices, and I don't want to have to replace broken bottles.
There's no doubt about the seal that forms when the bottle cap is flipped closed. It matters not whether I store my filled bottles standing upright or lying down on their sides, nothing leaks out, nothing.
The 8 oz size is perfect for a drink for one, and I've even taken a Bormioli bottle of my homemade kefir water in my computer backpack, knowing that not a drop will spill onto my macbook pro. The straight sides are a definite advantage, for saving space on the pantry or refrigerator shelf.
My slightly arthritic hands make some demands on me, and so I'm careful when selecting bottles I can securely grip, and again, the square shape gives me something to enhance my grip. They also tend to make it more difficult to open the top, so in the beginning I used a plastic jar opener to nudge the flip cap open, but after some use I can now open the metal clasp using my fingers.
The bottles show off the gorgeous fruit beverage contents to best advantage, so the filled bottles make beautiful table arrangements next to flowers in tall vases. And it looks stunning to stand a filled bottle at each place setting for a brunch or dinner. I'm thrilled with these bottles. I recommend them to anyone. They come securely padded in reusable boxes, so if you plan to move in the next year I'd keep the carton to protect the sturdy bottles for the move. I think it's smartest to buy quality bottles like Bormioli, with their secure rubber seals.

Purchased these for my Homemade condiments. They are stylish, and hold a good amount. The tops fit super snug and best of all they really fit better in the fridge. Great little space savers. I am sure I will be back for more.

A nice bottle with a tight fitting lid
I am using these bottles for homemade vanilla extract, so I wanted a bottle that looks nice as well as being functional.
This bottle fits all my needs.
It is an elegant bottle with smooth lines, but the bottom is squared so they fit nicely together (if that is your need).
The swing top lid is prettier than a screw top lid and it is very tight.
I like the weight of the bottle too. It is heavy enough to feel like quality glass, but not so heavy that it is annoying to use.
I have had a lot of success with Bormioli Rocco products and I will continue to buy them.

Bottles for vanilla extract
These bottles are the perfect size for making extracts. Small enough for small hands to handle while cooking.
The swing top closure will keep your extracts fresh for a long while.
These bottles would be perfect for so many other things & I will most likely be ordering more.

Awesome little gift bottles!
Cute little swing top bottles. Perfect for the flavored vodka I'm making for my friends this year for the holidays. ;] Would recommend. Be aware that they ONLY HOLD A CUP OF LIQUID SO THEY ARE SMALL, which is what I intended, but others may not.

I bought this bottle to hold an organic Apple Cider Vinegar/Rose Water toner. It was the perfect size and exactly how I imagined... I'm glad I bought two, because I'm sure they will get good use...

Work for me!
I bought several to use for making vanilla extract - I thought that having matching bottles would "look better" when friends would ask about the progress of my extracts. I give the bottles four stars - primarily because they look good and seem to be sturdy enough for the task. I haven't really tested the bottles to see how well they seal - I did have a small scare when the lid on one of my bottles flipped open while I was cleaning the bottle (I accidentally brushed against the flip-up mechanism). After that incident I now keep my thumb on the lid when I shake the bottles (as one of the steps in making the extract). That's my reason for the one-star deduction.
I bought only the 8.5 ounce size and I can fit 8 ounces of vodka and up to 10 split/cut vanilla beans and have an inch or so of space remaining, which allows me to shake the contents. Overall I'm happy with the purchase.

Wonderfully sturdy bottle for all-purpose use!
Purchased this along with a stainless steel cup so that I can make my own mouthwashes. The seal is pretty good and this is a very sturdy glass bottle; it fell from my windowsill into the tub while I was cleaning up, and it literally bounced! At $4.92, this was a super inexpensive buy. I just bought another to make my own hyaluronic acid serum!

Beautiful Storage For Any Kitchen, Coffee Bar, Or Home Bar
I've used cases of these bottles to make limoncello, store coffee syrups,flavored oils, and etc. and have always been very happy with their quality. These swing bottles are beautiful and add so much personality to our counter decor and coffee bar. Swing bottles are a welcome addition to any counter top or dining area. These bottles are also a wonderful way to present a homemade gift. These are a great addition to any kitchen and I highly recommend them.
