Good for water, not necessarily for juice
I just got two of the 36-ounce size to decant grape juice into, as it is getting difficult for my husband to handle the half-gallon containers it comes in. They are very lightweight and easy to handle as far as picking them up. But I think there's a flaw in the design of the spout. It's a little too far from the edge of the lid, so when pouring it tends to splash a little. And a little of the liquid does stay on the top of the lid, so it makes a sticky mess and you have to keep mopping it off if you use it as a juice decanter. I got them to use with juice, but they're probably more suitable for water as it would not matter as much if it drips a little. They are very elegant looking, though. I will continue to use them with water, but I'm looking for something else to use with juice.

Bought two of the 56 oz. jugs for a bridal shower. Only had to refill one jug once. Everyone agreed that it was easier to serve beverages from as opposed to using a punch bowl or a beverage dispenser. Would definitely recommend.

I bought these for a bridal shower brunch...they were perfect! Easy to pour, and held so much that I only refilled once for my own sanity. Love them. They were a terrific purchase and I will continue to use them at home!

Fits in refrigerator door and keeps juice fresh
I buy my juice in bulk, this are ideal for storing it in the refrigerator. They keep the juice fresh. The large ones are fairly narrow and fit into the shelving on my refrigerator door. They are also nice and classy looking. The opening for pouring the juice has a nice firm clip which is air tight and keeps the juice fresh. The juice does not spill, but some drops remains on the top when you are done pouring. I just wipe this off with a paper towel. Minor inconvenience which is why I rated it a 4 and not a 5.
