How many ounces do they hold?  And do they come in other Cream/Ivory, and blue?  (Those are the main colors in our raggedy kitchen.)

One "foodish" question has been bothering me for decades: WHY does ke'chup come in narrow-neck bottles (or even worse, plastic squeeze bottles)?  WTF is wrong with wide-neck jars like Grey Poupon or jam?  You an NEVER get all of it out of those skinny bottles.

Any answers?

Cute bottle.  It looks easy to use, and although I don't use much olive oil, it would be good for other oils, or other liquids.

Some people that commented, said theirs leaked, but could be corrected with a rubber band.

If I were to get one, it would be the yellow-green one.  My favorite color.

Pretty bottles. Looks like they will be easy to use, not slip out of your hand, and not spill down the front.

Felaine, I wish you had one too.  I use it all the time, mainly to cook beans.  They just won't soften at the boiling point of open water, which is 205 degrees F at this altitude of 4500 feet.

I see I made a mistake in my last post.  I cook the bones at 260 degrees F, not 160.

Spud, that sounds FABulous!  Wish I had a pressure cooker....and knew how to use it.

I'm eating on my second large pot of bean or split pea, pork, & poke bone soup.  

I cooked the pork & bones in the pressure cooker at 160 degrees for an hour.  Long enough to soften the bones, then put the beans in & cooked them.  

The bones are soft enough to eat, and I do.

I read where bone broth is super good for ones health, so I made up a batch. With the added garlic and onions and spices, it wasn't half bad. I'm all for good health.

Another reason I don't go to Tar-zhay is that I don't speak Armenian, and most of their current employees don't speak English.  At least not well enough to be understood.  (There are lines waiting for the store to open EVERY day, not just "Black Friday."  At least there were when I used to drive by there....I'm SO glad I stopped driving!

I don't shop at Target either.  I've only been getting recall notices for a week now, and most of them, like this one, I don't have to worry about.  I posted this one because I thought it might affect some people.

I've stopped buying things at Walfart almost completely, but they do carry the two brands of laundry detergent that Consumer Reports have rated the top of their list, and I can find them no were else in town.

Comment by sk8eycat on March 25, 2015 at 9:07am

Well, that's another product I don't have to worry about....there IS a Target store near here, but it's as sleazy as Walphart.  Wouldn't be caught dead in there.  (NO Walphart in Burbank; the City Council won't let them build or lease here.)
