Big discoveries require big tools and these are the largest test tubes we've ever seen! The clear plastic test tubes measure 18 cm (7") tall, 4.5 cm (1.75") in diameter. Each tube holds a whopping 240 mL (8 ounces) of liquid.
Six Jumbo Test Tubes with caps
- Creative use for test tubes Review by Sabrina
I order the Jumbo test tubes to use as snack (goldfish, puffs, cranberries) holders for my two young children. After I put the diapers for two, wipes, bottles, change of clothes and everything else in the diaper bag the space is very limited so I thought a snack container that was long and skinny like the test tubes would save more space than the to bowls I was currently using. It works great. My only word of advice is don't put them in the dishwasher. Wash by hand. My test tubes actually shrank to almost 1/2 the size. But Steve Spangler Science stood behind their product and sent me new ones...... it doesn't say they are dishwasher safe, I was just hopeful. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Great visual attention grabber Review by Darleen Davies
This past week I used both the baby soda bottles and jumbo test tubes to have my students look at why student obesity is becoming an issue in schools. I used drink examples and an activity chart to bring the point home. See an attached picture example. I can send you a copy of the worksheet entitled - Hidden In Plain Sight if you like. Your baby soda bottles hold about 40 grams of sugar so I needed to use the Jumbo tubes for Pepsi, A&W Root Beer and Simply Limeade looking at a 16-20oz serving size. Then looking at what kinds of sugar exist in each from the ingredient list.
One student drinks a liter of Coke so it measure 108 grams of sugar - his reaction was priceless. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Geocaching Review by Bob Hutchinson
I use these as Geocaching containers. I put my logbook inside, hide it, and the cachers find it. It also keeps water out so that the logbook stays nice and dry. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Excellent product and price. Review by Tom Noonan
I ordered the Jumbo Test Tubes to use in building emergency/hobo fishing kits. Excellent size for my purpose, having ample room for hooks, sinkers, bobbers and other supplies. I am very happy with the product and the price. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Storing tools Review by Matthew Smith
I like these tubes. I am using them to store drill bits and other small tools. I do wish that they would offer these Jumbo tubes with options to buy more for a better price like the Baby Soda Bottles. The Jumbo tubes are not as crush proof as the Baby Soda Bottles but the are a very useful size and reasonably durable. (Posted on 5/31/13)
