    This review is from: Bormioli Rocco Frigoverre Jug with Hermetic Lid, 2-Liters (Kitchen)
    I’ve given the pitcher four stars because it meets my needs as far as capacity, durability and appearance. It would have gotten five stars if the instructions gave clear directions on how to use the lid and if the handle, as other reviewers have pointed out – wasn’t so close to the pitcher, making it awkward to pour. Contrary to some reviewer’s comments, I haven’t had any problem with spillage when beverages are poured.

    I purchased the pitcher even though there were some very critical reviewer comments about the lid. At the time, I discounted them, figuring the reviewer’s weren’t following instructions. After spending an hour or more fruitlessly trying to get the lid to work, I was angry and frustrated. The next day, I took the lid apart and studied how the lid/pitcher seal was supposed to be made, and that was when I discovered, more or less by accident, the secret to making the lid work. Since then the lid has worked just fine (by the way, the lid must be removed prior to pouring).

    Here’s the technique: With the center piece screwed into the outer piece and in the open position (that is, the center piece bar is resting against the “open” tab on the top of the outer piece), pull the rubber ring over the bottom edge ridge so it rides in the groove formed where the ridge meets the bottom of the outer piece. The next step is crucial (yet isn’t described in the instructions – an unforgivable omission given the complaints about the lid failing to seal properly). Holding the outer piece of the lid by its serrated edge, place the lid on to the top of the pitcher so the rubber ring is in full contact with the top of the pitcher rim, then rotate it clockwise while gently but firmly pushing down on it until the bottom of the outer lid piece is in complete contact with the pitcher’s rim. The rubber ring is now deep enough into the pitcher to form a tight seal with the side of the pitcher when the center is rotated clockwise a half turn to the closed position (to the “closed” tab), causing the rubber ring to expand outward and create a strong seal. You’ll find that at room temperature, the rubber ring will encounter some resistance as it is pushed into position prior to closing; however, when cold (after sitting in the refrigerator) there is no resistance. You’ll be amazed at how easy the lid works when the ring and glass are cold.

    Best Refrigerator Pitcher – Hands Down, March 2, 2008
    By 
    Bewbury (Houston,TX) –

    These are great refrigerator pitchers for two main reasons:

    1.) They are heavy duty glass, so unlike plastic they will not absorb flavors, odors and colors from what you put in them.

    2.) They have a hermetic seal, so the flavor of your product stays in while other refrigerator odors stay out. Definitely a fresher taste for a longer duration. These are great for milk. (I can’t stand those plastic jugs and the milk in glass jars at the grocery is just too expensive to buy every time.)

    In response to one reviewer: Regarding the seal, there is actually a trick to sealing it properly. If you just place the lid on the container it will probably not seal. If you hold the outside of the lid and twist the middle handle in the proper direction (it is marked “CLOSE” on the lid) then you will end up with a perfectly tight seal. If you do not hold the outside while doing this, the entire lid may spin and will not seal, you need the outer edge of the lid to stay in place – so hold it there with your fingertips while you twist the top.

    It is actually very easy once you understand the concept. Hold the outside, twist the top.

    Now for the minor down-side: These do measure in LITERS, not quarts or gallons as most Americans are used to so adjustments to recipes would have to be made and you may have to use more than one pitcher if transferring gallons & such. I have spent so much money searching for a worthy refrigerator pitcher and never did find one. I came across these Italian imports for only $4.99 and $7.99 each at the C*ntainer St*re and I am going to buy more for sure.

    Also, one reviewer mentioned that it was difficult to grasp the handle. I have large hands for a female and I can still manage to hold it easily, but my fiance who is 6’4″ and 240 lbs. complained about the handle as well. Just be careful while holding it, I think they are still the best ever!

    I will definitely recommend these to my friends & family.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Bought three pitchers (1 x 2 liter, 2 x 1 liter). I wanted a square, heavy duty, well designed and functional pitcher that could survive the rigors of living in the fridge. There is nothing chintzy or nonsensical about these puppies. Heavy duty glass, space saving handle and spout which doesn’t protrude past the body. No advanced engineering degree necessary to lock the lid either. Just press and turn. Most importantly, the lid stays put when I turn the 2 liter pitcher upside down to give my OJ a vigorous shake before pouring. Square design saves space in the fridge. Spout is a marriage between functionality and necessity. The “stubby” design protects it from getting banged up. Pouring is straight forward and no mystery if you don’t make a meal out of it. Just put cup, glass, etc. under! the spout and let’er rip. Overall an excellent fridge pitcher (not much to look at though)that gets the job done.

    I’m befuddled by some of the negative/critical reviews. If the pitcher is too heavy when full, get a smaller pitcher or don’t fill it all the way. The lid has an O-ring but no groove(s) it can lock into. Hence, you have to push down to get a firm seal when locking. I found the handle design actually more conducive to lifting the pitcher when heavy. In short, this is an excellent pitcher that I would strongly recommend to anyone who is in the market for a quality utility pitcher.
