Clear as glass
on 4 December 2013
As you get older, your wrists rebel against lifting heavy items, so this purchase was made to replace more weighty glass jugs. Easier to pass around and no trouble to refill at the tap with one hand.
The sparkly, shiny, bright effect of this space age robust polycarbonate is impressive. The solid 'ice look' base keeps the jug stable. The handle is comfortable and easy to grip. You can still pour with the lid on, which is useful for keeping the drink fresh and clean.
I have only one small gripe and that is the wretched plastic labels attached to the jugs, they are tough to remove and leave behind a sticky residue that spoils the look of the jug. Eventually this washes away but I wish that a better solution could be found for that, to me, unnecessary labelling. The barcode one around the bottom of the jug peels off with ease.
I bought two to stand at either end of the table. I am really pleased to have them, they seem to be just the thing. I cannot comment on their longevity, I'll revisit this review in a few months time to report on any clouding or damage.
