The Bormioli Rocco Fido range of jars features jars with a glass swing lid that closes down on a rubber seal and locks by way of a wire bail. This allows an air tight seal for a wide range of foods including dried goods, dehydrated fruit and vegetables, pickles and chutneys, and oils. These jars are not suitable for use in any sort of preserving process such as water bathing (using a Fowlers Vacola, Ozfarmer or Ball preserving unit for example) or pressure canning.
