Decent glass jug
on 4 August 2014
Reason for buying:
I decided to buy this product because I was looking for a good quality glass bottle to hold the fruit / vegetable juices and the Distilled water that I was making (I bought 2).
Quality / Design:
During the 'Unpacking process', it was evident that the quality of the glass was first class. Not only was I satisfied but It had exceeded my expectations. However when I saw the lid and handle I was slightly disappointed. The handle does not look strong enough to go with the heavy glass bottle whilst the lid looks relatively cheap and slightly badly designed. It's evident that the glass maker, the handle maker and the lid maker were not on the same page.
The glass bottle is about the same height as your kettle and is thin enough to fit nicely in either the side of your fridge or inside the main section of your fridge, as long as you take one of the shelves out.
It keeps the liquid to the desired temperature as expected, however when you hold a jug full of liquid (1.7l litres), you have a feeling that the glass handle will break because it looks too small and too thin. I carry it with one hand underneath the jug and one on the handle. Another problem that I identified was that some of the liquid pours onto the bench when pouring with the lid on. I recommend that you either pour very slowly or just take the lid off.
On a positive note though when my girlfriend dropped the glass jug on its side on our kitchen bench, I feared the worse. However incredibly it did not break!.
Verdict: A good quality glass product that requires a redesign to both the lid and the handle.
