Simple and Elegant
At Christmas time, my husband's extended family went to an upscale restaurant for dinner. The waitress left carafes like this on the table filled with ice water. I must have poured myself 10 glasses of water over the course of the evening (seriously). I loved that its shape made it so easy to grip.
I guess I wanted to recreate that fine dining atmosphere at home, so I went on the search for a carafe. I did want a glass one. While you can find them most everywhere, The Container Store was the only place I found that provides the plastic lid, which is what sold me on their product. I wanted the lid because I knew I would use it to keep water in the fridge.
The carafe has a nice weight to it, yet is not too heavy when filled with water. Even tho I had to pay more than I wanted for shipping, it was worth it, and it did come wrapped in the package very professionally.
I keep the carafe filled with water and lemon in the fridge. I found it really dresses up a casual dinner table, too!

best price around
We have a b&b and wanted these carafes for cereal. We can fill them up every day or two with fresh cereals and put them out for guests to pour how much they want without having to touch the cereal itself. We had to have the carafes with the lids to keep the cereal fresh. We saw these in a store for $8 each and searched the internet for a better price. This IS the best price. Many places have them from $6-$8 each, but without the lid. Some sites will even tell you that there is no lid. Can't beat this price. They are perfect - durable, sanitary for what we need, easy to clean and store. Love them! They meet our needs and guests think it's a unique way to present cereals (rather than just putting out boxes).

Perfect for dining outdoors
These are great for when we are dining outdoors. The lids protect the contents from flies and bugs and nothing can splash out when I am setting the table. We just set them down in the ice bucket to keep everything chilled. I use them for juice, milk, and iced tea.

Fits perfectly with limited space in my fridge. And holds just the amount that I need to know I'm drinking enough to stay hydrated.
