Slimline Fridge Jugs

Our Slimline Fridge Jug holds over a gallon of milk, water, or tea yet requires less than 3" of refrigerator shelf space. Our 2.5 gallon Slimline Fridge Jug holds twice as much in just 5-1/2" of shelf space. Space-savvy, clear, and unbreakable, these jugs feature a truly leak-proof spigot, a grip handle, and a wide-mouth opening for easy filling. We recommend hand washing. See more product details below.

REALLY GOOD PRODUCT We ordered two Slimline Frig Jugs and they are great. Don't have to lug large milk jugs in and out of the frig . July 17, 2014
Excellent Deal and a great space saver. We bought 2, one for the main fridge and one for the garage fridge. We use the main fridge one until empty then refill it and put it in the garage fridge. At the same time we put the one that was in the garage in the main fridge. That way we always have really cold water. May 27, 2014
Doesn't Function As Designed About the only thing that was good about this jug was it's size. I bought it as a water dispenser in the fridge. We were having a party and I served tea in it. The liquid dribbled out very slowly. There are labels explaining that you need to loosen the lid to have a full stream of liquid. I did this but still did not get a good flow. The other thing it did was "take a deep breath". The flow would stop and the whole container would act as if it took a deep breath. I will tell you that when I returned it the staff at the store was very nice and accommodating. May 23, 2014
DO NOT BUY! The apocalypse is upon us. I never thought this could happen or ever expected it to, but I have made my first TERRIBLE purchase from the container store. Normally the CS has high standards when curating the items they stock; they failed with this one. This product has an air vacuum issue that causes the water to start off with a decent at-best flow and eventually slows to a trickle before you get to the one cup mark. You then need to tilt the jug back and forth for the bubbles to fill the chamber back up to get the water flow back at its *decent at best* level. May 22, 2014

Answer: 
You do not have to unscrew the Slimline lid in order for water to flow from the spout. You do not need to remove the item from the fridge either. The spout just needs to clear the shelf it is resting on in order to pour successfully.

Answer: 
Yes, you do have to unscrew the filler lid a few turns for the liquid to flow faster than waiting for the air to bubble in the spigot. The filler lid has no vent and also has a thin foam "gasket" that can still close off the opening if the filler lid is unscrewed enough. A small hole could be drilled into the filler lid but you would have to hold a finger over it for transporting or mixing. These are very durable Jugs but they do require hand washing. Temperatures above 175 F will cause the plastic to soften and distort. They work great for powdered mix drinks and can dispense while still in the fridge. Very stain resistant and the spigots are good quality and do not leak if cleaned regularly. The 1.25 Gal Jug measures (including spigot) 16.25" x 9.75" x 3" and 2.5 Gal Jug is the same and nearly twice as wide.

I'm assuming these are made of plastic. The plastic container I've been using for iced tea over the years has stained so bad that I'm throwing it out.
I could fit my hand down through the lid opening and scrub the container out however the opening on these containers look too small to do that.
Any suggestions?

Answer: 
I have used mine for powdered tea mix for over a year and it shows no sign of staining yet. A very strong brewed Tea may leave a residue on the inside but I doubt it could stain these Jugs. Use care to cool any hot liquids before transferring them to these Jugs. Hot liquids above 175 F will soften the plastic and cause it to distort out of shape. The Filler lid opening for the 1.25 Gal Jug is only 2" but the 2.5 Gal Jug opening is large enough for my bear paws to fit in. I resist the urge to use "hard mechanical" cleaning of the inside. Some dish washing liquid and warm water, and a soft wash rag placed inside the Jug, with vigorous shaking (with the lid on) do the trick nicely without scratching the plastic inside.

I just bought the Slimline Fridge Jug today and the cashier advised me on how to screw in the spout and keep it at the "3 o'clock" position until the spout piece is screwed on, then turn the spout downward to dispense. She this would avoid water dripping and leaking from the jug.

I cleaned the jug with warm soap and water, then filled it, and put it my refrigerator. My son opened the fridge a few minutes later and water had leaked all over our fridge. I tried to readjust it several times, put it back in the fridge, and the leaking continues. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong. I want this to work. I love how slim it is and how much space it frees up in the fridge!

To prevent leaks, ensure that the two portions of the spout are assembled properly. The first part screws into the jug itself; the second part is the actual spout. The operation of moving the spout can loosen the two portions of the spout - make sure the two parts are suitably tightened and the spout should not leak.
