Glass Refrigerator Pitchers
Using for 18 yrs.
Best refrigerator pitchers I have EVER owned. Short large one fits great in newer designed frig. which has decreased shelf height and larger door storage. Works great on both shelves and door.
Opening and closing (sealing) is simple and love that the lid totally dis-assembles for great cleaning. I bought a set of these glass pitchers (2 large, 2 med. & 1 small) over 18 years ago from another store. Three moves later I had lost 1 lg. & 1 med. When last large broke (totally my fault) I was desperate to replace. Can not go without these pitchers. Happy to say my 2 large pitchers arrived in record time and expertly packed. I am very impressed with The Container Store and will be using them for more purchases in future!

Exactly what I hoped for!
I bought these containers so I could discontinue using plastic. I had a hard time finding glass pitchers that I could clean well...most have a carafe-like neck, and I wasn't going to fight with it. These have a nice wide top, and I haven't had any issues with dripping.
The lids seal nicely, and even my kids can use them. I don't worry about shaking them when the lids are on, I know I won't have a problem.

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.
