Our Slimline Fridge Jug holds over a gallon of milk, water, or tea yet requires less than 3" of refrigerator shelf space. And 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 and cleaning. We recommend hand washing. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both products are terrific I have previously owned the smaller version of this Slimline jug and abandoned it when I moved. In my new home, I have now purchased the larger version. I find either of them to be perfect for my needs. My refrigerator is larger in my new home, so I decided to try the bigger one. As a note: Be sure not to tighten the lid when you want to use it. It will need air to assure the flow of water from the spout.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, but.... I've had three of these 2.5 gallon bottles. I got three so I could juggle them and always have one at work and one at home with a good supply of water in both places. I haven't had trouble with the spigots leaking as some other reviewers have. I guess it's the luck of the manufacturing draw. My problem is the plastic bottles are TOO FRAGILE. The joint between the white plastic spigot and the clear plastic container body is TOO FRAGILE. It cracks and leaks much too easily. On one of mine I gently bumped one of the lower back corners and it just popped open. Seriously, I have always been gentle with these things, but they break way too easily. Manufacturer should use stronger plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-use The espresso maker I have at home doesn't store much water in its compartment. After only a few brews, I have to refill the machine. Very annoying! This jug came so handy when I came across it online. I filled this jug with water and connected a plastic tube from its dispenser to my coffee maker. The days of refilling the machine every other day officially came to an end. It is so much more efficient now. Love it! The jug is slim, light, durable, and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slimline Fridge Jug I bought the larger (2.5 gal.) of the Slimline Fridge Jug since I wanted the convenience of having really cold water at the touch of a finger. It is so convenient to be able to hold a glass under the spigot and have a very refreshing drink. So easy to use, best purchase ever!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only one I can find, so it will have to do... I've purchased about 6 of these. I buy them 2 at a time because they just don't last. They get brittle and crack over time. Every time. Usually around the bottom corners. But I am unable to find a better option, that is also BPA-free, so I buy 2 at a time, to ensure I have one on hand when it inevitably cracks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Second Jug Failing Unfortunately the material is not up to the job. First we had the 2.5 gal jug. Over time, one of the lower corners got brittle, and broke when I put it back in the fridge after a refill. Huge mess... Exchanged it for the smaller version, thinking less water volume = less pressure on the thin plastic walls. Low & behold, the same happened. No rough handling, just in and out of the fridge every other day for refills. I imagine if you use it "on the go" it'll break even faster. They need to reinforce the corners or use another material altogether, otherwise this is useless. Could also use a plug of some sorts on the top, for depressurization. Having to twist the cap off and on to vent each time is tiresome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet tea! Love the size of this! Being from Texas we drink a lot of sweet tea, I was making a gallon every day. Now I can make almost 3 at a time what a time saver. The jug takes up just a little more room than my 1 gallon pitcher.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disapointing love I continue to buy this jug even though they crack. The first lasted 8 months and developed a small crack in the body of the pitcher above where the spigot is. The second lasted 2 months even though i was much more gentle with it. The downward pressure applied to the jug when you open the spigot seems to stress the plastic too much and it developed a small crack and slow leak. I love how this fits in my fridge, i love having cold water on hand, i love the design. I wish they lasted longer. This is a design flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Water jug! I love this water jug, and have been using it for years. It's easy to fill, clean, and it's BPA free! It is extremely space efficient in my already crowded refrigerator. I've never had a problem with leakage, but i will have to say that it isn't 'unbreakable". I did have to replace a jug because of a crack in the corner. This was, though, due to some clumsy and rough handling on my part, and after several years of wear and tear... Also, I do recommend cleaning out the spigot from time to time, and i generally use a cotton swab to get in there. highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like this product I am on about my fifth one of these containers. I use it for tea. I love the way in fits into the frig and how little space it takes up. My only issues are difficulty trying to clean it; and if it's put in the dishwasher, it tends to warp the threads on the top, making it difficult to screw the top on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from love this jug.... I am a bit embarrassed to be writing this review. I previously wrote one that stated how much I liked this small jug. with two teen boys, we use a lot of milk, and I bought this to be able to keep plenty on hand. twice in two weeks, the milk has spoiled!! the dating was great, so it wasn't that. I might try another one for water or tea, but this one is going back! I am extremely disappointed, as I love the design!

Community Q&A

Will tea stain these containers and how do you clean these out?

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?
Asked by: lexpres61
this cleans nicely with a rag inside shaking vigorously with water and some soap.....ALL EXCEPT the handle. That won't clean. After a few months, there is a build up in there of black fuzzy looking slime. No way to reach it. Soaking with bleach may help but is not safe for these plastics so I will not use that.

have a question about this item

when you have this item you do have to unscrew the top to get it to pour & do you have to remove it from the fridge to get it have the drink to come out because I am asking I have one & you have to do all that to get the drink to come out
Asked by: cooltwou
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.

Are these containers safe for acidic liquids like vinegar?

Asked by: scmobile
I can attest that these containers are not chemical resistant. As a chemist, I should have thought to check which plastic it was made of before deciding to use it to store bleach. I didn't and ended up with nearly a gallon of bleach spilling out all over the place. Thought I had ruined my drier and brand new washer (had it on a shelf over the washer and drier). The spigot wasn't the problem, the container itself didn't hold up to the corrosive nature of bleach.

How do I get this jug not to leak all over my fridge?

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!
Asked by: SerenityNowGirl
I had this problem and was glad to read the earlier answer. There were no instructions that came with my Slimline Fridge Jug, so I hadn't heard about tightening the spout. Tightening it definitely did the trick.
