    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.
    We use these pitchers to hold iced tea and iced coffee. One gallon is the perfect size to hold a 96 oz caraffe. You can also write the date and contents on the lid with a chalk marker and it easily wipes off without getting runny.
    Simply well-made. Gets the job done. Attractive, as far as something simple like this goes. We bought a few and have had no problems with them. Would buy again.
    These gallon pitchers are a great addition to any kitchen. Used for juice, iced coffee, or water, they are worth the money- Highly recommend. Thick plastic.
    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.
    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.
    These are nice pitchers. They hold a ton of liquid and are very durable. They store nicely in the fridge. We use it for tea.
    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!
    Very handy pitcher. I love that it holds around a Gallon. Its perfect for birthday parties without breaking the budget. Its also dish washer safe
    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.
    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.
