I needed one wine carafe for a party. I hesitated buying this product because it was a set of three and I already had two wine carafes; but, I purchased it for the value. The 1-liter carafe matched the other two that I had. I hot glued a panted clothes pin to each of the carafes, created fun labels for each of the wines, and filled them with boxed wine. They worked perfect and I saved a lot of money on wine. It would be great if these had lids, but I'm still glad that I bought them.
