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.

Sellers are selling a different item that what is shown. They are selling the Chapel Hill model under this Monticello model listing. The Godinger Chapel Hill model is slightly different and is being sold for less under a different listing on Amazon. Make sure you get confirmation from the seller that what they are selling is the right model.

I don't own this particular (exact model) with the "glass" cylinder.

I do however own the same model with the "acrylic" cylinder. I opted for the acrylic cylinder model, as it allows the dispenser to be used out doors as well. Both models offer the exact same features and design. However, the "acrylic" cylinder model is $35.00 less expensive. Keep in mind, neither the glass or the acrylic models have a center fill ice cylinder, allowing the beverage to remain cold. I personally find frozen fruit not only does the trick. But looks fantastic as well. Depending on the beverage being dispensed, the variety of frozen fruit one can use is really unlimited. I find frozen strawberries, quartered lemons, limes, oranges, and even whole cranberries look fantastic, and work very well in keeping beverages chilled, for several hours.

I have no idea how well this will hold up, in the long run - but right now? I love it! Just got the Godinger Monticello Shannon Crystal metal & Glass Beverage server today. It was packed VERY well (styrofoam within a box - all WITHIN another, HEAVY cardboard box! I immediately unpacked it - checking to make sure the glass wasn't broken/cracked - and it was fine. It looks amazing. (Truly amazing.) Then, I filled it partially with water, to test the spigot. Works just fine - turns on, shuts off. (Granted, it pours a little on the slow side - but I'm not concerned.)

I bought this to serve iced tea at an upcoming wedding - and it's going to work great. I am very, VERY pleased with this purchase. Like I said - I don't know how this will hold up, in the long run - but for the wedding? This is going to work great.

Terrific looking, substantial quality - and at a great price. TOTALLY recommend this.

It's perfect!
We use it at work to dispense water at meetings rather than use water bottles and we have been commended more than once on our green efforts.

Does not mildew easily and the metal hasn't tarnished yet!

I've used a lot of beverage dispensers where the nozzle never fully closes so you get a constant slow drip. That is definitely not the case with this one. There was no puddle to wipe up at the end of a party, and it looked beautiful full of a fruity sangria.

I used it for Christmas and it worked great. It is large - possibly wouldn't need one that big unless you entertain in large numbers. The quality was great and didn't drip when shut off.

This is a beautiful drink dispenser. I used it for a baby shower and everyone mentioned how nice it is.

There is no way it is worth $100. It arrived today with packaging intact but it is going right back tomorrow. The description lists the item as glass with metal base... The base is plastic painted metallic ( unevenly painted as well) and the glass is acrylic. It looks ok, i guess, but is a rip off for $100.
