CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOU

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOU

How much does each tin hold?

Our spice tins are sized by volume.  Spices are sold by their Net Weight.  These two measurements are very different and do not relate to each other.

Example:  The bottle shown to the right is a 1.4 oz. bottle of Poultry Seasoning.  Beside it is a 2 oz. Applause spice tin.  It is obvious that the contents of the bottle will not fit in the tin.  So 1.4 oz. in weight does not correlate to 2 oz. of volume.


So how do I figure out what size tins I need?

Pour the contents of one of your full grocery store spice into a dry measuring cup.  If it is a typical 4 - 4-1/4" grocery store bottle (like the one in the picture above) its contents will between 1/2 and 3/4 cup, depending on the brand.  Some brands will all fit in a 4 oz; some won't.  Our 6 oz. tins hold approximately 3/4 cup--the perfect size for pouring an entire grocery store bottle (no matter the brand) into it.

If you purchase your spices in small amounts at a health food store or a grocery store with bulk spices or get refills from your favorite online Spice Vendors, then 2 oz. and 4 oz. tins may be just right for your needs.
