Using them for Kombucha. Came quickly via UPS with no damages. Only problem I've seen so far is that the caps (plastic, not ceramic stoppers) don't make an optimal seal. My kombucha has gone a little flat after bottling.

This is my seventh purchase because I really liked the first 5 sets so much
This is my seventh purchase because I really liked the first 5 sets so much. Unfortunately, the sixth set was not like the first five sets. The first 5 had great reusable cardboard boxes with dividers and the last two sets the bottles were individually wrapped in bubble wrap and loose in a box. One box had two broken bottles. The swing tops are totally different than the first five. The first five sets had thicker wire swing arms that held the kombucha pressure really well. The old bottle caps from a year ago plus purchases did not have stainless wires - probably zinc coated but had a nice strong lock and unlock. They work over and over! The sixth from 6 months ago came with a thinner stainless? wire but barely work. My seventh order came in two 6 bottle cases poorly packaged as previously described one month ago came with extremely thin and flimsy stainless wire that I fine useless. All my kombucha that are in these bottles are flat while my old bottles are perfect. Now I'm looking to spend $23 on two dozen new swing caps to replace the last two cases that I purchased. They probably thought they were making an improvement going to SS wire. Shouldn't have cut wire diameter to were it doesn't work!

Arrived with one broken bottle
The package arrived with one broken bottle inside. So, when I just opened the box, my hands were all covered with tiny pieces of broken glass, as well as all internal surface of the box. I didn't notice the broken bottle immediately after I started unpacking, so my kitchen floor, table and other areas where I put the box were covered with pieces of glass, and I spent a lot of time to clean everything up.

Good product and customer service
I ordered two cases for Kombucha. They arrived promptly and intact. Assembly of twenty-four bottles left me with a bruised thumb, but got it done. Neither myself nor my husband could close the bottles. We tried several, but the orange plastic-like seals were too thick and simply would not close. I had ordered some replacement seals from another company and those red rubbery seals worked fine and are still very tight, so I am expecting an effective seal. I contacted the company about the issue and the customer service person said there were two types of seals and I had most likely received the wrong ones. He credited me back the cost of two packs of replacement seals, rather than have me send them back. The tops are plastic, not porcelain, which was disappointing, but not a deal breaker. It was a fair price. The mouth of the bottle is smaller than a Grolsch bottle, but it works well enough.

Great for kumbucha!
I purchased these bottles to store my kumbucha in and they are PERFECT. Great size, air tight, easy to clean. They come with a nice funnel so pouring the kumbucha was super easy. The glass is thick and sturdy. We have had no trouble with air escaping or our kumbucha going flat.
$35 for 12 glass bottles is a really good deal. We have gotten up to 3 scobys in a 2 gallon jar. This is exactly enough to fill all 12 jars when adding a little fruit or juice for flavoring. It is awesome, these bottles allow my wife and I to each have 1 kumbucha almost every day
We would def recommend these and would purchase again!
( in case you were wondering, the kumbucha flavors in the photo are: Blueberry mint, blueberry basil, orange passionfruit ginger, and hibiscus. sooo good! )

Just right for bottling my Kombucha.
Very nice sturdy bottles. They came individually wrapped in bubble wrap in one box. There was no breakage. The price was the lowest i found on AlumiGogo also. Putting the flip-caps on is easy. I highly recommend them.

Not appropriate for bottling home brew
I bottled a $40 brew with two cases of these and a few other Grolsch bottles and regular long necks (capped) -- these were a couple bucks cheaper than everything else. Maybe a third of these chef's star bottles held carbonation. The other (not this brand) bottles ended up with consistently carbonated beer. I got burned and will never buy these again. If you're a home brewer, please buy something else.

Item is good. We have bought two cases.
Reasons why I am giving 2 stars is because
1) bottle had a defective cap so I cannot use
2) I contacted their customer service over a week ago and so far no one has contacted me regarding my issue. Customer service is very important.
