Product Review: Oxo Cookie Jar

There has been a lot of baking going on in my kitchen these last few weeks. What with Little Man’s Birthday, Halloween and my general love of baking there have been cakes and biscuits all over the place! Cakes tend to get eaten pretty quickly in this house but when I bake biscuits I tend to do them in bulk so there’s enough to last about a week. The problem I’ve found however is that they don’t stay fresh for that long in a tin so we invariably end up throwing some out which is a shame. At least we did until we discovered the Oxo Cookie Jar.

The Oxo Cookie Jar has the traditional cookie jar shape to it – rounded with a flat base and back and the opening angled forwards – but has a very special lid. As you can see above the lid has a large button on it. Pushing that button down secures the lid but also makes the jar airtight. To open the jar your just release the button and use the large round handle to remove the lid.

The jar has a capacity of 2.8 litres which is A LOT of cookies, so ideal for me and my bulk baking. Biscuits which I’ve baked and stored in here have been as fresh as the day I made them a full week later. I’m sure they would remain fresh for several more days to come if my husband and Little Man didn’t eat them all!

At £13 its clearly not the cheapest cookie jar on the market but its the best one I’ve found. It has pride of place in my kitchen and Little Man knows where to find his biscuits. He’s even managed to figure out how to open the jar himself, its that easy to operate.

You can find out more about this jar and the other items in the POP range here, as well as locating your local stockist.
