Other jars with wide openings such as those on gallon and half gallon jars can be found under Standard Round Jars

Widemouth Plastic Jars
Widemouth plastic jars are those which have a opening which is slightly smaller than the the main body of the jar. The distinction between Straight Sided jars and Widemouth Plastic Jars is found on the interior of the jar. Widemouth Jars have a slight ridge at the neck of the jar so that when the cap is applied to the jar it is vertically flush with the exterior of the jar.

Widemouth plastic jars are stocked in sizes ranging from 16oz to 32oz.

Straight Sided Plastic Jars
Straight Sided plastic jars have an opening which is the same diameter as the main body of the jar. The interior is completely flush and smooth.

Please note:While straight sided jars appear to the naked eye to have vertically parallel sides, the sides are tapered slightly.

Straight sided plastic jars are available in sizes ranging from 1/4 oz to 40oz.

CC Round and Standard Round Plastic Jars
These jars have an opening which is smaller than the main diameter of the jar, (they are often called bottles because of this). The best example of this type of jar is probably sitting in your medicine cabinet. Aspirin and pills often come packed in CC round jars/bottles.

CC and Standard Round plastic jars are stocked in sizes ranging from 30cc (30cc = approx. 1 fluid oz.) to 1 gallon.

What is a plastic jar?
This may at first glance appear to be a ridiculous question. Actually a fair amount of confusion surrounds the naming conventions for bottles, jars and jugs.

To alleviate some of this confusion we have provided the following definitions list. Please select the item that most accurately describes what is that you are looking for.

Plastic Bottles
Any item made of plastic that has no handle and an opening which is less than 50% of the diameter of the container

Plastic Jars
Any item made of plastic which has no handle and an opening which is greater than 50% of the diameter of the container.

Plastic Jugs
Any item made of plastic which has a handle and an opening which is greater or less than 50% of the diameter of the main container body.

None of these definitions should be viewed as applicable in all cases. They are meant to provide some clarification for recognizing the distinction amongst bottles, jars and jugs and to establish a simple monitoring logic by which these items could be divided into more distinct product areas.
