This jug has been a staple in our fridge for the most recent warmer months.
Our main purchasing factors which all turned out to be true; - The jug is thick walled - The entire thing including all of the lid can be washed easily in the dishwasher - The jug is very easy to hold, even when condensation occurs - The lid keeps odors out quite well
The only issue we have with this jug is that if not seated correctly the metal plate which lets the water flow through will resist, either resulting in the user turning the jug around to use the free side or less enjoyably flood the table with water because it finally gives way at a point where the water exceeds the width of the glass.
I am so pleased with this carafe. It is larger than I expected, and yet so light (when empty), beautifully designed and crafted. It fits into my fridge door shelf so can easily go from fridge to table and looks stylish enough for any occasion.
