We'll see how long the glass lasts - -
on December 16, 2010
Updated 1.10.13. Third year of use and the glass is fine, the silver on the lid and stand look new and the spiket (sp?) works with no leaks or discoloration. I have been looking for a unique drink dispenser for some time now - but all the models I see in the stores look the same, are low quality, sit too low on the table to enable a glass to fit under the dispenser or the stands were not stable enough. I was thrilled to see this on the web - looked to be exactly what I was after - silver and crystal glass is elegant but can be used casually as well. $70.00 less than the same product on a different site. Arrived in a short time, packaged well. When I unwrapped the package my initial response whas "Oh no...this is plastic and I wanted glass." Once I removed all the wrapping I realized that the canister was indeed glass - but it is rather thin. While I understood at the time I placed the order - for the price there was no way this was actually crystal as stated in the Amazon description - I expected something a bit more sturdy. The item comes in 3 pieces - the bottom stand, the lid and the glass canister with a permanently mounted spout. It looks great. The stand is solid, the lid is even solid. I am concerned that the glass could crack at the slightest knock and expected thicker glass for a self service food item. We'll see how it goes.
