This keg is a nice deep Purple color with Lilac accents on the lid and inside handle. it keeps drinks cold for 12 hours. It is not Dishwasher safe! I have not used it for hot items nor would i because that is not the purpose i intended to use it for prior to purchase.
It is recomended to drink 64 oz of water a day and this almost covers it. This keg is obnoxiously big but then again what do you expect? for a keg size bottle? I would probablky get the 34 oz one because it fits in the car holder, this one does NOT which is something to think about if you intend to travel with in the car. I have no problems with leaks or tightening my lid!
