Science Beaker Storage Jar Set
Made of science grade borosilicate glass, these two storage jars are designed to replicate laboratory beakers, with cork stoppers. Ideal for storing dry goods in the kitchen, they could also be used to store keepsakes, knick-knacks or trinkets if you prefer. Unapologetically scholarly and nerdy, they are also undeniably cool.
Dimensions: 9 x 6cm / 150ml
Even if the world of the professional laboratory never encroaches on your adult life, the School Laboratories and their surfeit of wooden stools and benches, chemicals, flames, bubbling liquids and glassware is always a memory that perseveres. Experimenting (remember “Method, Results, Conclusion”) with potentially hazardous equipment and materials was possibly the most dangerous school life got.
Sometimes called a Griffin beaker (as it was created by John Joseph Griffin) a beaker is a commonly used piece of laboratory apparatus. It is usually a cylindrical container with a flat base (with a height 1.4 times that of the diameter) and is used for liquids – for stirring, mixing and heating purposes. Common “standard” or “low-form” beakers have a small spout (or "beak") to make pouring easier.
