I love how thick and solid this pitcher feels for being glass, it's sturdy. It's square shape fits perfectly in the refrigerator unlike rounded pitchers with hug handles that take up more valuable space. It has a lip which makes it easy to pour without making a mess. The lid keeps your beverages free of odor or flavor transfer from other things in the fridge. It is a thick glass pitcher which can get heavy after filling with fluids so be careful if you have small children in the home who might want to pour their own drink. I use it for water, tea or juices and it works great. If your looking to avoid the use of plastics, this is a great alternative.
Awesome pitcher, easy to use, we have been looking for some time for an appropriate tea pitcher, this is the best we have found. Fits nicely in the fridge and making tea is a snap, we just fill with warm water drop in a large tea bag and brew. Easy to clean very well made.
Well, I really needed a glass pitcher that could be used everyday for keeping cold drinks in the fridge and something that we could bring to the dinner table. I particularly wanted it to be something the kids could use, but sadly this did not fit the bill. First, I'll say what I did like about it. It's nice looking and a good size. The square shape meant that it fits nicely into the fridge without taking up too much space....
BUT, here is why I cannot give this a good rating: The glass is very heavy even when empty and when filled, it becomes too heavy for children to use, so it wasn't going to work for the purpose I had intended it. Also, the lid has a 'lock' or 'pour' option to keep the contents airtight when not pouring, which I though was a great idea, but it is almost impossible to use! It is very tight when locked and to try and twist it off for washing it becomes a huge struggle... even just to twist it from 'locked' to 'pour' becomes such a nightmare that in the end we just wouldn't use it. I made lemonade and kept it in the fridge in this pitcher and my kids tried to open it and open it without any success, then I tried it, thinking they were being silly, and I absolutely couldn't budge it open, then even my husband tried, and he couldn't get it to open either!!! He was so frustrated with it, he told me to just get rid of it!... but I thought it was so pretty and continued to hope that it would get better with each use. Admittedly we only used it two or three times because it was so frustrating, but it never improved. So, guess what??? The lemonade sat in there for over a week, untouched, unusable.
Also, I didn't notice at the time that it arrived, mainly because I wasn't outrightly looking for any damage, but it was faulty. It had a fine crack where the handle meets the main body of the jug, and the crack was concerning particularly because of the weight when filled. I kept imagining the handle just snapping off and the jug falling to the floor shattering everywhere. I cannot recommend this product and I only wish that I'd seen the fault right away, before I had thrown away the packaging, so that I could've returned it. So, it's been sitting unused and high up on my shelf and there it will remain. Very disappointed.

I have had one of these pitchers before, and used it for iced tea. I did learn, unfortunately, that one cannot pour boiling water into it, so I now let the water cool down a bit before making the tea and it's perfect.

While the description of the product is accurate on the site, I was very disappointed with this pitcher. It is small, which I expected from reading the other reviews, but very heavy. The lid in my opinion was very difficult to use and cheap in both feel and appearance. I would have kept the item if I hadn't paid so much for it, but did not believe the price to be in line with the product received. However, I'm very pleased with my experience because Overstock accepted the return without any problem, and refunded my credit card very quickly.

I bought this for ice tea. I love it as it does take up less space in the frig. However, I am a little afraid of the handle breaking off at some point, while it is filled with liquid. Wish it came with no handle. (That way it would take up even less space in the frig.

I love this pitcher! When I first received it I was disappointed because it is smaller than what I was expecting. I didn't read the dimensions which is my fault. It has turned out to be the perfect pitcher for ice tea and I use it every day. The size actually makes it easier to lift when it is full with a liquid. Great purchase!

Is the plastic lid and materials BPA/PET FREE? I'm switching to glass pitchers at home due to BPA and PET in plastics. This product would defeat the purpose if the lid had BPA or PET in the plastic parts.lesney323 on May 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
