Cookie Jar or no Cookie Jar?

We have a cookie jar and have had one for as long as I can remember. When I went to buy one for a gift my friend said, "People don't use those anymore?" Do you?

  • I had one, but wound up giving it to my mom because it didn't match my kitchen decor after we moved. I'm still looking for one I like that does match. I like having them, I think it makes a kitchen look homey.

  • We have one. we have a ceramic one my mother made that i had growing up that we store down cellar because we have a feeling our kids would break it so we use a plastic one right now. (would love to go back to the other one) We go thru a lot of coookies inthis house each week.

  • I have a "cookie jar" for dog treats. Does that count?

  • I would use it... but with 3 boys, the cookies never make it to the JAR!!

  • I like the idea of one and had it when the kids were small, but if they're the pretty ceramic ones, often the cookies get stale. I would make sure your friend wanted one before I made that purchase. She might feel it's a dust catcher, or that now she has to make cookies to fill it. You could ask her if she has one as a child, and what she thinks of them. Kind of feel her out. She might love the idea.

  • Nope never have had one. We just don't have cookies in our house. And I think the cookies get stale. I am a potter and make a lot of cookie jars and they always sell, so I know people buy them, but I personally do not have one.

  • We never had one. Mom always put cookies in a large tupperware container. I don't have one now either, but I don't bake cookies very often.

  • We had one growing up, but when I make cookies I keep them in ziploc bags so they stay as soft as possible.

  • I don't have one. I like to use tupperware to keep all the homemade cookies soft. Plus I hate clutter on my counter.
