Pros: Good size for storing half bottles of concentrate, I bought it to store half a bottle of Ilford Multigrade. Con: No place for labeling the contents or putting the date it was opened on.

I use the bottles to store developers that come in plastic bottles, since plastic allows some oxidation.

Cap seal is poor quality

The bottles are accurately-sized (250 mL fills one all the way into the neck), which limits air exposure, and seem to be decent quality glass. They don't feel too thin or fragile. The 250 mL size has a foam-type seal in the cap, which can stick to the mouth of the bottle and leave part of a layer behind when peeled away. Wetting the mouth of the bottle before closing may help prevent sticking.

These Amber glass bottles are completely air proof as well as blocking much of any light striking them from getting inside. I have used these bottles to divide my developers into sealed smaller containers and thus double or triple the life of the chemical! For example, Ilford DD-X will only keep for a month or so in its original plastic bottle once it's under 1/ sealing up individual glass bottles I've successfully kept DD-X for over a YEAR, and compared it to a brand new bottle to find that there was no discernible difference. Currently, I use these bottles to hold Kodak HC-110 concentrate (syrup) and Ilford ID-11 stock solution. The HC-110 lasts for years in its plastic bottle so this may be overkill....but since I usually use ID-11 (same as D-76) diluted 1+3, and I don't develop more than a few rolls per week at best, I've found that keeping stock solution divided up into small glass bottles means I can simply chill the entire bottle down to 68 degrees F and pour the entire small bottle into my mixing container to create working solution....a package of ID-11 kept in a plastic (or even glass) 1-liter bottle can quickly oxidize and lose potency, potentially ruining precious negatives.... If you run small batches on the weekends like I do, or simply want to make your chemicals last significantly longer than the conservative manufacturer recommendation I highly suggest you invest in several different sizes of these very inexpensive and high quality amber glass bottles from Photographers' Formulary!

Purchased for PMK black and white film developer, part A. Like the dark glass, but when I poured solution in I couldn't get it all in. Had at least 20 mls left over. Same with the 500ml bottle. So be aware. I typically use about 8 mls of part A so I lost 2 film developments. But I do like the bottle. It's just not 250 mls.

250 bottle
