Glass Refrigerator Pitchers
Nice Glass Pitchers
I use these for excess storage of OJ and milk. They are kept stored behind the Quattro Stagioni Bottles (#10014858), which I use for everyday-storage of same beverages. [See my review of those bottles for photos.]
The handles look short, but they work great and are easy to hold. I love that they keep OJ and milk super cold, and they look nicer than the plastic containers they came in. Beverages just taste better and stay colder in glass!
The lids have a round silicone gasket on the underside; you need to hold down the top outer edge, and while doing that, use your other hand to turn the middle (to open and close). Seals tight and drinks stay fresh! I always shake before pouring, and these do not leak!
Keep in mind that the silicone gaskets do retain the odor of some beverages (OJ), so you may be stuck with using the lid for the same beverage. I have not found that CS sells a replacement seal/gasket for these (like some other products).
I use CS's Erasable Food Storage Labels (#454090) on the lids of my EVERYDAY bottles (Quattro Stagioni Bottles #10014858) to let me know the expiration date of beverages in these pitchers.

I bought both different size pitchers and love them both. I love that they're heavy-duty glass with a pour spout. Best of all, tho, is that the lid actually locks out air and locks in liquid. I bought these for my daughter's infant formula, so I have to shake it each time before I use it and it still doesn't leak! The short, fat one even fits on the top shelf of my refrigerator. The price was very reasonable, too.

So much better!
I got these after seeing them on a blog about organization for the fridge. We drink raw milk and used to get it in glass jars. We switched our supplier and now they come in the regular plastic jugs. The plastic affects both the taste and the length of freshness in a bad way, so I was looking for a different storage solution. I absolutely love these! I bought four of them to use specifically for milk. We get 5 gallons at a time for a 2-week period. The pitchers keep the milk fresh and sealed until we use them and are just the right size and weight for our kids to use as well. I read another review about the handles being too close to the main part of the pitcher making it difficult to handle and I could see how that might be an issue for a large-handed man, but even filled full of milk its not heavy enough to cause a real problem. I also read a few reviews that mentioned confusion about how the lid works. Its not difficult really. Just make sure the rubber ring is in place on the lid. Put the lid on and turn the middle area while holding the outside of the lid in place. No biggie. I really like that we are now keeping our milk in glass containers again and fully intend to purchase four more.

I've had this pitcher for about a month now. Fits easily on the shelf or on the door shelf. The lid wasn't as hard to get used to or figure out as some of the other reviews made it sound. It does have a drip or 2 though. Overall, it's a great pitcher and I'm about to purchase one for my sister.
