Before we take a look at the different Bodum storage jars, first let's answer the question, what's a borosilicate glass?
According to wikipedia.org, "Borosilicate glass is a type of glass with the main glass-forming constituents silica and boron oxide. Borosilicate glasses are known for having very low coefficients of thermal expansion (~5 × 10−6 /°C at 20°C), making them resistant to thermal shock, more so than any other common glass. Borosilicate glass was first developed by German glassmaker Otto Schott in the late 19th century and sold under the brand name "Duran" in 1893. After Corning Glass Works introduced Pyrex in 1915, it became a synonym for borosilicate glass in the English-speaking world."
It is created by adding boron to the traditional glassmaker's frit of silicate sand, soda, and ground lime.
So what makes a borosilicate glass special in a Bodum storage jar?
Well, I'm assuming you've heard of the European manufacturer of kitchenware called Pyrex. They're known for creating excellent products that are sturdy and that lasts a very long time. What makes this work is that they use borosilicate glass, which is the same type of material that Bodum storage jars use.
One great thing about Bodum is that they make sure that there is no lead in the materials that they use. This is something I really trust with them as they give me peace of mind when buying kitchenware.
Add that to the simple yet attractive design that Bodum developers have created and you have one elegant storage jar that will stand out in your kitchen - something your guests will notice.
Bodum makes sure that their product is for everyone as they make sure that they have different colors for the lids of their storage jars. Now, all you have to do is pick what color will blend in your overall kitchen theme.
You never want your coffee beans smelling funky right? No worries as Bodum storage jars do not absorb any aromas. When you clean it in the dishwasher, you will be assured that whatever scent from the previous item you put inside will disappear. But why interchange the usage of your Bodum storage jar when you can have two or more right?
One storage jar for your coffee beans and the other one for your tea leaves.
