    I truly like these petri dishes. Now you’re asking, what can be so great about a petri dish? Well, these ones are glass, but they are very sturdy, they’re made of thick glass and are heavy (in a good way).

    I actually don’t use these for experiments, I bought them since I needed a flat, non-porous container to mix and apply my mineral make-up. I know, silly, but the walls are high enough such that I don’t get powders every where and if I have excess I can just leave them in there for another day. I use these in an unconventional way. But if you were to use these for keeping cultures of bacteria, since they are made of a sturdy and thick glass I believe that this petri dish would work well for heating also.

    I gave this a rating of five stars since for what I use it for, it works great. If you were going to use this for an actual experiment, I might give it a four star since the lid is a bit too loose for my liking, but then again it truly depends on what you want out of a petri dish.
