2.1 qt. Flip-Spout Acrylic Styrene Pitcher
Great pitcher, but....
I bought three of these pitchers at The Container Store in San Antonio, TX in order to divide a gallon of milk into two containers, plus have one for iced tea. The osteoarthritis in my hands and wrists made it very painful for me to lift a gallon jug. The design and balance of the pitchers are great, and working well for my needs. However, the pitcher would be more functional for me (and for others reviewing it here, I see) if it were about 1-1 1/2" shorter, as it is too tall to fit into most shelves in the frig. On the ones it does, it is a close fit at the top, and requires care to extract without hitting on the shelf above. Also, unless the pitchers are 'secured' in the frig bin, they tip over when the door is opened, even if full. That means the bin has to be fairly full, so that the pitchers are somewhat held in place by wider containers next to them. Making the pitchers shorter and a little wider #side to side, not front to back# would make them ideal. With these changes, they would fit better in the frig, be more stable and still save space. I'd buy a couple more of them then.

Is not spill-proof
I like the look and size. But I bought this for orange juice and it leaks when you shake it to mix the juice. I'll keep it for other uses but now have to search for a better pitcher for mixing juice.

I tried lifting the top, but it broke and I haven't been able to fix it. I thought it would have a large enough spout for the bird food, but its not. I will probably give this to a friend to use for beverages.

Compact and pretty
I like this attractive little pitcher. So far, it's cleaned up nicely, but the lid is not all that easy to clean.
