Jobi Pinch Pots

The Lifecycle of a Jobi pinch Pot


The “Pinch Pot” was created in the 1950s. It’s a small little bowl, pinched into its irregular shape by hand. No two are the same.

We’ve found over 101 uses for the pinch pot to date: for teabags, jewelry, condiments, babyfood, dipping oil, stamps, and just about a pinch of anything, like salt or pepper. See for yourself.
