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.

We enjoy making our own juices. This glass pitcher has been great for fresh carrot juices --- none of the staining issues associate with the use of plastic containers. The size and shape are easy to fit all types of spaces in the refrigerator.
I love this pitcher. Size is right, the lead works very good, and the iced tea lasts longer. It has all the benefits of the glass (clean, no odors, no stracthes, minimized contamination). Once full, the total weight has not been an issue to me.
I received the first pitcher broken. Cooking.com replaced it very quickly with no problems.
I LOVE this pitcher! It's attractive, holds a convenient amount, is simple to use, and a good value. Easy to wash in the dishwasher. It's also compact & square, so space efficient. The shorter height means I can put it on a different shelf from the other drinks, where space is always limited.
This pitcher is everything I had hoped.
I bought it because it is made of glass, which I like, I mainly use it to make ice tea. I heat up water in a Pyrex in the microwave then pour it into the pitcher and put in the bags to let it seep. I wasn't sure if it could handle the boiling hot water but I have not had any problems. The handle is close to the pitcher but neither me nor my 6' husband have any problems holding it.
You do have to remove the top to pour the drinks, it doesn't just slide open/closed like plastic pitchers do. But since it is extremely hard just to find a glass pitcher with a top I don't find this to be a problem. The top closes nice and tight to keep out food odors.
Overall, I am extremely happy with this pitcher, I bought two and I am very happy that I did.
This pitcher is the excellent size for storing my homemade lemonade, limeade or citrus drinks and punches - including rum & vodka punches - in the fridge. It has a good feel to it, not too light or heavy, and the size is not cumbersome. I can slide it onto the top or bottom shelf, no problem. The lid prevents odors from strong foods from mixing with the contents and it seals tightly but opens easily. I should have bought TWO!
I was looking for a couple of glass pitchers so that they could be thoroughly cleaned. These fit the bill. My only minor issue is that the tops are a little tricky to open and close, and I'm not sure how well they willl hold up, but time will tell. Overall, very pleased.
I wanted to change to glass pitchers. But when I got this product I found the handle is so close to the body of the jar that it is difficult to hold. If the handle were out a little further, the product would be a good choice. As it is, it is hard to get ones hand around the handle so one can lift the jar.
I love my new pitchers. I don’t like using plastic for storing or cooking and had been looking for a covered glass pitcher for some time.
This pitcher looks good on the table and seals tight for storage in the refrigerator. It is better than anything I expect to find!!
