Rated 3 out of 5Â by FCBill Leaks When Shaken, Pours at a Trickle
As others have commented, the Juice Jug leaks when shaken. For me, the solution was to hold a Kleenex over the pour spout. I didn't find that it leaked form the vent hole on the top cover.
I used my Juice Jug to hold orange juice. The small vent hole in the top became coated in orange juice, gumming it up. The vent hole became almost completely plugged in a couple of day and the juice came out of the spout at a trickle as a result.
If you're going to use the Juice Jug with iced tea or water, you'll probably be fine. But anything that has pulp in it will clog the small vent hole. The same may be true for liquids with sugar in them.
One other issue is the handle. It would be much better if the handle was round instead of flat. My wife has arthritis in her hands, and the relatively thin, flat handle is hard for her to grasp.

I completely agree that it leaks when shaken, maybe not swirled... Unless you hold down that tiny little nob behind the spout, then you cannot shake it. And when you do release said tiny little nob, it will ooze from there even if the liquid level is not at that level. Ginger syrup was the culprit in my home- all over my counter, then fridge door as I did not realize it was still gurgling just a little bit. Thankfully a bit of hot water and soap is a quick fix, no harm done, and it really is the best thing I could find for what I utilize it for. I like that it strains and has a pretty tight seal. While it is not optimal, I've had one batch go for 2 years and it's perfectly fine (but may be the sugar and the fridge).

We enjoy this pitcher in several ways. The mouth of the pitcher is perfect for my tea maker that has a spring bottom for dispensing the brewed tea. It is also used to make infused beverages and the filter spout keeps fruit out of the beverage.

I bought a couple of these to hold my homemade nut milk but you can't shake the containers without having it leak badly out of the spout lock on the top of the container.
I can deal with the small amount of milk left in the spout dripping out when you use it, but I can't deal with not being able to shake the container.
