The pitcher arrived in 1 piece and without damage. It's a perfect size vessel for me to use when drinking loose leaf tea.
It's too warm around here to leave milk carton out all day, it sours. But a small amount, held aside in this, gets used up long before that. Also good for holding a small second tea aside, if the pot is needed. I got two, they're inexpensive and I hope it's, umm, sturdier than it seems.
I've poured scalding hot water into this small glass pitcher and it's been making amazing tea. The pitcher is very light and looks very clean!
