    these things can take a beating. I've abused all of the ones I own, and they are strong. They don't bend or warp, don't get stained from liquids inside them, and never leak when pouring.

    This Rubbermaid 1978082 1 Gallon Plastic Pitcher with Lid seems adequate for intended use. But, 1 gallon capacity seems a bit overstated - you'd have to fill it to the brim to measure a gallon and this proves problematic when using the lid.

    This is a perfect pitcher for my tea drinking family. Boiling water poured over tea bags doesn't hurt the pitcher or result in any "plastic smells." The straining lid fits snugly and prevents any ice from rushing our during a pour. Clean up is very easy with a soapy sponge and water.

    This is a great pitcher. It's large enough to store large batches of tea or even water in the fridge to keep cool. Lasts forever!

    We brew a lot of iced tea in our cafe. We love these. They are a good size, they are easy to serve from, and they hold up well.

    If you run a coffee shop or cafe, and are making large amounts of iced coffee, tea, juice, etc. then these pitchers are for you. They hold an entire gallon with ease, and the seal created by the lid is surprisingly tight.

    I love this pitcher so much. It's taken quite a beating as I've used it a lot for various drinks. It washes easily and the dishwasher doesn't destroy it.

    Stands up to my dishwasher

    This is a nice large pitcher. I can fit a double batch of sangria in here, with all the fruit. Also, it fits in the side door of my fridge. I didn't notice any staining of the plastic from the red wine, and no residual odor left in the plastic.

    This Rubbermaid pictcher is great for home use. I use it for sweet tea and it's held up great. The plastic hasn't discolored and I've had it a while.

    One of our most used items! We use these pitchers for everything from smoothie mix, to iced tea, prepped simple syrup, etc. They are durable, easy to clean, and universal because of their size.

    Basic water pitcher. Great product. We use this to transport water to our chafers, the lid was the main reason of our purchase as it can sit on a cart and water will not spill everywhere

    Great product and that's held up very well. The cap provides a great deal with no leaks when pouring. There's even measuring dots along the pitcher!

    Nice large one gallon pitcher. Great for making a variety of drinks. During something summer time they come in handy. Highly recommend for a sturdy pitcher.

    Excellent quality. Use these everyday and after being washed so many times, these pitchers still look new. Only bad thing is that the lid sometimes pops off if its not pushed down securely.

    from Paris Baguette Posted on

    We needed an made in the USA product that is BPA free for one of our exacting clients. This pitcher is sturdy and the top is secure so we don't need to panic about spills.

    This is a very nice one gallon Rubbermaid plastic picture I like the lid and has a little locking slots on it it's a very nice price and glad I got it

    from Place to be Bistro Posted on

    These are good for keeping prepped mixes in. I do wish that they made a bigger one but this will have to do until then.

    from Alpendough Posted on

    These pitchers are strong and sturdy. They don't bend with filled with liquid, and after getting slammed on the counter after repeated uses, they still hold they shape very well! Only complaint is that they should have a twist lock lid.

    from Taste of Saigon Posted on

    These pitchers work perfectly for what i need. I bought two of them. One for sweet and one for unsweetened tea. They are very sturdy. Very pleased with them.

    from Mom's Bakery Posted on

    This is absolutely perfect for iced coffee at work. We recently got a large brewer from Webstaurant and we wanted to have the option to keep some coffee cold to use for the office to have iced coffee. This is just the ticket. It stores more than enough coffee and is easy to use and keep clean. I am actually thinking about buying another one of these for my home.

    Can't beat these! You can prob get one cheaper from the big top stores but justifying waisting gas and time makes no sense, I order rite from my shop and receive at my shop... It's a no brainer

    The pitchers are exactly as described and the high quality you would expect from any rubbermaid product. The lid fits snug so it doesn't spill either!

    from Loran-GulfCoast Holding Co, Inc. Posted on

    As other reviewers have mentioned, these lids do stay on, with little leakage, so that's the best thing about these jugs. We use them for bloody mary mix and orange juice. They aren't cheap, but are much higher quality than some of the other options out there.

    Bloody Mary Bar with Rubbermaid Pitchers!

    I love this pitcher for pouring sanitizer solution in our ice cream batch freezer. It pours well and is quite sturdy, so I think it will last for a long time.

    from Little Lion Ice Cream Posted on

    A pitcher is a necessity in most kitchens now a days. Even at home. I was looking for something for my tea at home and came across these. I have been using them for a week now and they are perfect. Except one thing the lid does not stay in the pitcher when pouring drinks. I'm always holding the lid instead of the cup. It should be the other way around. I'm not sure if it is just the lot of pitchers from the manufacturer of just a design flaw. But other than these problems I will recommend it.

    from Todd's Kitchen Posted on

    These are wonderful pitchers. They are of a large size and are well made. Not to mention the price was right. Such a great value!

    This order arrived on time as stated. It was exactly what was ordered. There were no issues on the product. We appreciate the quick response.


    They are what they are. Great and sturdy and perfect for your ice tea or prep or whatever you need. We have about ten of these.

    We use these for mixing our jouices in the bar, easy to handle, sturdy for the dish machine, great price, storage with less space taken up!

    This is a durable pitcher with strong walls and large handle for easy grip. It fits 1 gallon perfectly as our airpot holds 1 gallon which we transfer into this pitcher for chilling coffee.

    from Honeybee Patisserie Posted on

    Great quality pitcher. The plastic is much thicker than those cheap ones from chain retailers. It is a big enough size to hold a good gallon of liquid.

    from nitas place Posted on

    Fantastic product. It holds up to a gallon of your preferred beverage. It is easy to handle and even easier to use. The lid prevents spillage and keeps your beverage at a desire temperature.

    from The Waves Restaurant Posted on

    Good sized plastic pitcher with lid by rubber maid. It is well made and the lid goes on pretty firmly so that you don't have to worry about it falling off easily.

    Posted on

    Sturdy and durable, I have used this pitcher at home for a number years. It holds up well to dishwashing. Handle is strong and doesn't feel like it will break off as it can with cheaper pitchers.

    Stronger and more durable than expected. We use this to make tea and iced coffee and so far so good. Buying more right now! Great product.

    from 12 Corners Cafe Posted on

    This pitcher works great for storing liquids but it would be an even better product if there was a way to lock the lid on.

    from Verite Catering Posted on

    Needed some one gallon pitchers and these worked. Found out they are the same price as local stores, but still a good item for the price paid.

    from church Posted on

    Great for beverages with ice! Easy to fill and quickly refill. Durable and easily maintainable! Great bargain. Excellent for banquets and even diners. Works well for iced tea and water!

    Very nice pitcher for holding beverages. We also use them for shaking sauces on chicken wings and other food items and the lid stays on and does not leak.
