Question:
Are your clear glass jugs or jars tempered glass and/or are they freezer safe?

Answer:
All the glass bottles and jars we sell at this time are common Type III(soda lime) glass. They are not tempered and will NOT function the same as Pyrex(freezer to oven).

Soda-lime glass is primarily used for bottles, jars, drinking glasses, and window glass. Its only real limitation is its inability to handle sudden thermal changes or high temperatures.

Conversely, borosilicate glass is used for cooking plates and other heat-resistant products. It is used for kitchens products and chemistry laboratories because it has greater resistance to heat and thermal shock.
