This pitcher is so handy! The lid doesn't leak so I can take it to a pot luck. I love making herb waters. I put the herbs (fresh from the garden) in insert when I start dinner, pop in the fridge and by dinner time we have cold herb flavored water. Delicious!!! I bought two and don't regret it. I can have one always full in the fridge for my family's summer thirst. We have tried basil, mint,lemon balm, lemon verbena, and fennel (all great).
I have given two of these pitchers as gifts to my nieces. Our whole family is trying to eat healthier and this pitcher is a great way to make healthy beverages at home. I also have a similar pitcher from the same manufacturer. You can create simple fruit infused waters or you can be more creative and make exotic iced teas using loose tea leaves and herbs, or tea bags. My nieces also make their own iced coffees. Personally, having an infusion pitcher helps me drink more water and many of the fruits and vegetables used to flavor the water actually create health tonics that help detox and purify your body. Also, the plastic is BPA Free! I highly recommend this pitcher!
