If you treat your home kitchen more like a laboratory — always whipping up strange concoctions and experimenting with new ingredients (to mixed results) — you know having high-quality storage containers on hand is a must.

And while we're fans of Pyrex container sets (and other similar containers like these), sometimes your food experiments require an easy-pour container. Enter: these Chef's Star 16-ounce, swing-top glass bottles.

Buy Them!

Chef's Star Easy Cap Beer Bottle, $18 for six

Each top has a rubber gasket to ensure a tight seal, and the bottles can go in the dishwasher. That's why this set of six is a best-selling product on Amazon, and a bargain at more than 40 percent off.

Of course, these bottles have an endless amount of uses, but allow us to recommend the following:

1. Brewing Beer (and Kombucha)

Their title may identify them as beer bottles, but we say that they're perfect for whatever you're brewing up at home — whether it's beer, kombucha, iced tea, or cold brew coffee. Just pour into your glass and seal the rest up for later usage.

2. Storing Sauces, Dressings, and Condiments

Like to make your own hot sauce? What about your own salad dressing? These bottles — filled with vinegars, sauces, and condiments — are perfect to keep in the fridge door or next to the stove for easy grabbing when you're cooking.

3. Storing Home Bar Accoutrements

It took you a lot of time to organize your at-home bar cart exactly the way you like it, so why would you want to junk it up with mismatching store-bought bottles? (If you're still in the market for a bar cart, check out our favorites for inspiration.) Streamline your bar cart by using these bottles to store flavored simple syrups, bitters, citrus juices, mixers, so everything's uniform — just the way you like it.
