I’ve always had a serious soft spot for these Presto kitchen jars – first off they’re far rarer than the Ball or Consol versions, then you have their size (I have a particular fondness for their dumpy shape!), and finally the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) embossed stamp of approval – that’s the thing I like the most! The Institute was established in 1922 in England (the very same year that Pyrexware made its appearance) and a nod from GHI meant that the item you were buying was considered “trusted, reliable and of good quality”.
Obviously they knew what they were talking about given that these kitchen jars are still around (and in excellent nick!) decades later!
Dimensions: Each jar measures 9.5cm tall x 9.5cm wide
