What I wanted seemed so simple: a glass juice
pitcher with a lid that closed tight enough for me
to swirl my orange juice around in the morning
to re-mix the settled pulp, and with some stylishness.
I must have looked at hundreds via the net. This is
the one I chose and I'm happy with it. The square
shape is very space-efficient in the fridge and
the lid seals pretty tight. It looks rather elegant
(though the plastic lid looks somewhat less so
than the glass body of the pitcher, which is quite
nice). I liked it enough that when I'd bought one and
decided I liked it, I went back and bought two more.
I purchased the 2.25 Quart Glass Pitcher by Bormioli Rocco mainly because I no longer wish to use plastic containers for both taste and possible health benefits. Occasionally, after a liquid is in a plastic container I can taste the plastic. If I can taste the plastic then I'm ingesting the plastic which can't be good.
1) Pitcher made out of glass, Not Plastic
2) Short in height
3) Very Stable (will not accidentally tip over)
3) Reasonable price
1) The handle is not well designed. The handle is made for smaller hands (I have medium size hands and the handle is not very comfortable.) The gap between the handle and the pitcher should be made larger. Also, the handle should be attached at the bottom in addition to the top for added strength.
2) The lid is not secure (does not fit tightly) and is made of plastic. However, the lid will rarely make contact with the liquid, especially if the lid is removed while pouring.
3) Glass is not tempered. Therefore do not fill with boiling hot water to make ice tea.
4) The design of the spout is adequate, but could be easily improved by having slightly larger spout.
My only reservation about this pitcher is the limited amount of space between the handle and the body of the pitcher. The picture is a little deceptive. My hands are not real big, but I can only put my fingers around the handle up to the second knuckle. This is awakard and will take some getting use to. It is compact, twisting the inner part of the top gives an airtight seal and I can get my hand inside the pitcher which makes for easy cleaning. Overall, a good buy.

If you are looking for the right pitcher for the frig, this is it. Have been looking for glass and not plastic for about 6 months and decided to check online. So glad I did. Am ordering 3 more-1 this size and 2 in the larger size.
I had been looking for a glass storage pitcher for ice tea as plastic ones seem to go mold quickly (my daughter has noticed this as well. This fits in the door of my refrigerator, is good quality glass, and no mold! The handle makes it easy to pour although with arthritis it is a little heavy. The lid is a little annoying which prevents it from being “best”.
I wanted to get away from keeping tea and water etc in plastic containers and use glass instead, and I love this pitcher! The only "fault" I found with it is that there is not much space between the handle and the outside of the pitcher to hold it. It's no problem for MY hands, but my husband has larger hands and it's a tight fit for him... Otherwise, it's a wonderful product and the size is just right. Btw, I ordered two and I'm planning to order two more.
It's beautiful, looks great on the table and also in the fridge, and the square shape makes it fit so much better in the fridge than round pitchers. It is very easy to clean, also thanks to the large opening.
Apart from its beautiful design and how it looks, what I really love is that I can tighten the lid just to get the right seal that I want. For instance, I can just use the lid as a light cover (no seal at all), or just turn it enough to get a light seal that will securely hold the lid but is still lose enough so I can easily remove it without having to turn the lid, or I can even tighten it all the way so I'll have a spill proof seal. Btw, you gotta hold the outside of the lid when you turn it to get a tight seal.
In one of the comments I read that the seal isn't tight enough. I tried mine (with tea inside) by gently shaking and moving the pitcher so the tea would actually touch the lid, and not a drop made it through the seal. When I tried holding the pitcher upside down, all that came out were drops.
So in my experience the seal is definitely strong enough to keep the lid securely in place even with the weight of about half a gallon of tea pushing against it when holding the pitcher upside down, it is definitely spill proof, and it only leaks if you hold or store the pitcher upside down or on its side.... what I'm not planning to do and don't think this pitcher was made for.
Bottom line -- Am I glad I bought it and does it do its job? You bet! :-)
I like to make iced tea in a glass container, but finding one with a tight lid was always a problem. This pitcher is excellent. It holds two quarts, and the lid seals tightly. I do not have the problem with dripping that others have reported, perhaps because I remove the lid before I pour.
I was very disappointed with this glass pitcher. I was searching for months for a nice replacement for my plastic juice pitcher. Although the lid seals beautifully there is no way to pour out of this with out spilling or dripping. Also the glass handle is very awkward to hold especially for my husband. I am not recommending this pitcher at all. Needs a redesign.
I've tried other pitchers to store my tea in the refrigerator. I like the feel of this pitcher and it looks great. It's easy to clean. It's sturdy and strong. The lid is a little different, but not difficult and I really like it - seals well.
This pitcher is perfect size for reconstituting the 16-oz frozen just concentrates, which is exactly what I was looking for. The low height of it is perfect for fitting between refrigerator shelves. And the tightening lid is a very nice feature.
We bought the pitchers to replace our plastic ones for health reasons, but have also found them to be wonderful to store dry staples like flour and nuts on an upper shelf above our baking area. Their sturdy handles are great for bringing them down to counter level safely and we can see exactly how much is lft in each one!
was using the pitcher for ice tea only. Broke after one month of use. Pitcher was at room temperature when poured hot water in to make ice tea. Worked very well for the first few weeks.(Seals very well and does not drip, which was the reason for purchase)
