I was looking for a spill-proof BPA-free pitcher that was not too expensive. This fits all the requirements. It is made of Tritan plastic so it's bpa-free and stain-proof. It has a leak-proof lid, is easily washed in the dishwasher, and it can take boiling water without melting. I use it to make a carafe of hot tea to refrigerate for later and it works beautifully for that too. I bought two of these - one for my tea and one to make drinks from concentrate for my kids. A very good buy!
This is not only functional, it's beautiful, too! It holds 2 quarts of whatever, and it's stain resistant, unlike other Rubbermaid pitchers I have purchased. The lid snaps shut tightly so there's no spillage by kids removing it from the fridge. There's a side for pouring and a side for pouring with ice. Fits perfectly in the fridge, just a hair shorter than a 2 liter bottle of pop. I would be hesitant o use the dishwasher, though. It looks great, pretty enough for serving on the dining table. I love these new plastics that give you the look of glass.
