Rated 4 out of 5Â by LibbyK Great, but a word of warning...
I love this pitcher. I make hot coffee in it each morning, then chill it in the fridge for afternoon iced coffee.
The manufacturer's site says this is dishwasher safe, but I suspect the heat of the dishwasher is what caused my lid to shrink. It was fine for several months, but now (having moved to a new apartment with better plumbing/water-heating) the lid is too tight and pops off within seconds. I bought a replacement and sure enough - the old lid is a smidge smaller. Only by about a 16th of an inch, but that's enough to make it completely unusable. I also noticed that the older pitcher's markings had faded, but they're still legible (for now).
Now I have two pitchers, but only a single lid that I must protect like the Crown Jewels. Coffee is important.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by pdxvampire So good I'm buying another!
I've owned one for about two years. I use it every morning to microwave chai tea concentrate and almond milk (w/o lid of course). Great handle, easy to read markings, lid forms a good seal so no worries about spillage.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CookingMomandWife Good find
I use it to store the oil left over from deep frying. The glass is nice and thick which helps even in storing hot oil. Then I just use the oil bit by bit and the spout helps in pouring it in a pan.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ayerssharp I use it for my homemade powdered laundry detergent. The lid makes it a perfect container and it looks great, too.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Nuccia Great for heating in microwave
I mainly use to heat liquids in microwave because the handle does not get hot., then it rinses very easily. It is also large enough to whisk an egg or small recipe, then pour. Lid is great for fridge. I'm not sure how accurate measurements are because I haven't compared them with known ones.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by coolStuff Just the right size
Terrific, especially the pour spout. this jug takes up minimal shelf space. Would be nice if measure lines began at 1/4 or 1/2 cup (and metric equivalents) instead of 1 cup but it's not the end of the world. can either best guess or use measuring scoop if have to be exact for those less than 1 cup measures. Well made and lid a nice feature too.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by 1TexMom Great Kitchen Tool
I bought this same glass measuring jug about 2 years ago at Container Store. After many uses, I discovered it had a crack in it when I took it out of the dishwasher. When I went to Container Store to get a new one, I could not find it (my store had moved to a new location and things were "out of Place" compared to my old store). A nice store employee asked to help me. When she couldn't find it, she went to the computer and we found the picture of the jug. She said they had 3 in the store and searched until she found it. Great employee as are the other employees in the store. I use this jug so much in my kitchen. Thank goodness for employees who willingly help customers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GeorgieGirl Can't get enough glass measuring cups
The 3-cup measuring "jug" is handy. I really don't like using plastic in the microwave for melting butter, etc. Glass is a preferred standby for me. The lid gives this jug an advantage because you can store and not have to worry about plastic wrap, etc. to place over the top. I am thrilled so far, and it will come in handy every day.

All measuring cups should have lids. The best is the thin pour spout allows you to pour with out dripping, no funnel needed. The only draw back is if you drop them they break. I love mine. I have two number three got dropped.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ghbugmama Get rid of all the others
I have been trying to rid the kitchen of plastic food storage items and duplicate items. I saw this measuring cup and have since bought two. Love the lid, the size and feel of the handle, it is glass and clearly marked.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tizzy Best measuring cup/pitcher
I love this measuring pitcher. It does not dribble after pouring the liquid from it. The cover is not friendly for me, since I have hand problems. It would be better to have a twist on twist off pourable lid. If it were one cup large, I would truly love it more. It is the best measuring cup/pitcher that I have used. The glass is great for non-staining and no odor retention. Great for use in the microwave too. Liked it so much, I ordered 2 more for gifts.
