Bought three pitchers (1 x 2 liter, 2 x 1 liter). I wanted a square, heavy duty, well designed and functional pitcher that could survive the rigors of living in the fridge. There is nothing chintzy or nonsensical about these puppies. Heavy duty glass, space saving handle and spout which doesn't protrude past the body. No advanced engineering degree necessary to lock the lid either. Just press and turn. Most importantly, the lid stays put when I turn the 2 liter pitcher upside down to give my OJ a vigorous shake before pouring. Square design saves space in the fridge. Spout is a marriage between functionality and necessity. The "stubby" design protects it from getting banged up. Pouring is straight forward and no mystery if you don't make a meal out of it. Just put cup, glass, etc. under! the spout and let'er rip. Overall an excellent fridge pitcher (not much to look at though)that gets the job done.

I'm befuddled by some of the negative/critical reviews. If the pitcher is too heavy when full, get a smaller pitcher or don't fill it all the way. The lid has an O-ring but no groove(s) it can lock into. Hence, you have to push down to get a firm seal when locking. I found the handle design actually more conducive to lifting the pitcher when heavy. In short, this is an excellent pitcher that I would strongly recommend to anyone who is in the market for a quality utility pitcher.

I bought this to use with my homemade almond milk and have absolutely loved it. I've been using it for about two months now and it is everything I hoped it would be. I haven't had any trouble with the lid--just use one hand to hold the jar steady, the other to rotate the lid. The suction is excellent and spill-proof which is important because we shake up the almond milk each time before pouring.
I store this in the door of my fridge with the handle hanging over the shelf door and it's easy to get in and out. I love the nice weight of the glass--durable, but not too heavy. Cleans up easy. I highly recommend this pitcher.

I put it in the fridge filled with water and seal it (which is quite easy: just unscrew the inner layer of the lid while holding the edges of the outer layer of the lid, and then remove upward from jug to open and then do the opposite to seal it). Once I take it out of the fridge to open it and have a glass of water, it's great because no odors or scents from the other food in the fridge get inside the jug thus nor the water! Overall a very well-made product! And to be honest this is the second one I am ordering, plus they fit perfectly in the fridge doors!

I'm in love with this pitcher. I, being Noah's wife, for whom the pitcher was bought to store and dispense raw milk. I read the reviews about it not sealing, and I have zero issues with the seal. It is tight and strong, and I can shake the milk all I want without it spilling. I have the 39 ounce, and it's pretty in my fridge, and the handle is just right. The kids can even pour the milk themselves. I can't say enough about how much I like this. I whacked it on my granite counter pretty hard by accident and was a little worried, but no damage done. This is one of my favorite Amazon purchases of all time. LOVE.

I debated on buying this pitcher for several months due to some of the reviews about leakage. Well, I now own this fantastic non-leaking, well insulated, fine quality Italian glass pitcher. We do not use plastic in our home due to health concerns and this glass leaves the liquid inside tasting so fresh!! I buy organic citrus and squeeze my own juices into this, leave it in the pitcher for several days and it still taste as fresh as the day I squeezed the juice. The 1 qt size fits nicely in our refridgerator. My husband complained that it leaked but I discovered he was not closing it properly. You have to press down on the outer ring with one hand while turning the inner ring with the other and it seals tightly and securely. I plan on buying more from this company.

Love these pitchers!!! I have been looking for something like this for a long time and could not find anything like it in the stores. Amazon to the rescue! These are great for making drinks in and you don't need to worry about the container absorbing odors or retaining flavors. The opening is wide enough to be able to thoroughly clean the pitcher without difficulty and the lid is great. The lid unscrews with a twist of the center knob and tightens the same way keeping odors from your refrigerator from mingling with whatever you have in your pitcher. I love the handle, it is large enough for me to grab and makes pouring easier. Several people complain about it dripping, when I pour from it, I usually rest the pitcher on the edge of the cup and when I'm done pouring I use the edge of the cup to catch/wipe the drip and really don' t have much of an issue with it. Or, I guess you could just have a tissue ready if it is going to drip and catch it before it runs down the pitcher. I really like these and am glad I found them. I bought four of these and use them daily.

I loved this pitcher so much, I bought a second one. I use them for making herbal infusions and realized it would be easier to have two so I can strain one into the other and always have a clean one on hand to make more. It's sturdy and I had no trouble with the cap. Just hold the serrated edge when you tighten the inner ring. It pours great - no spilling, and I have no trouble holding the handle, though I could see if you have very large hands, it might be tight fit. The best part is, it's glass, not toxic plastic - and because it's square and not tall, it's much easier to fit in the fridge. Highly recommend…

Shattered when I poured hot water in it - see photo. Bought this to make tea, used without incident for two months, but then it shattered yesterday. It had been sitting out at room temperature and was on a wooden cutting board, so was not "operator error." Warranty is only for 1 month, and this happened exactly 2 months after purchase, so apparently I am out of luck. Would not buy this again.

Wow. I have had these for years and the glass is so easy to clean. I have too. I am careful so have never broken them but the glass is also very thick and strong. The lids have several parts so always store them put together as you don't want to forget how to re-assemble them.

Also, don't use harsh cleaners to clean the rubber stopper ring. They seem delicate but mine have held up just fine.

I use mine to store sugar water for the hummingbirds or for just fresh clean natural spring water used for drinking.

Heavy-duty glass. Lid's twist-gasket mechanism is ingenious, IMO. Hope the lid holds up over time and doesn't collect any gunk in the seam -- we'll see. Handle extends close to main body of pitcher, which some folks don't seem to like but we like due to less space consumed in refrigerator. If we had designed it, would have made it a little taller so its footprint would've been a bit smaller, but we knew this when we bought it. Have been using to keep ice tea in the frig for a couple of weeks.

For now, very satisfied with this product; no hesitation giving 5 stars.
