We had two Fridge Carafe's with a silicon grip sleeve, and wanted to find another one of those in a different color. Couldn't find it, so we picked this up. The carafe is great. We make sun tea in it and love that it fits in the refrigerator door. The tea filter is very durable and strains well for most any tea. Great product and a bit cheaper than some of the other carafe's out there.
I use my carafe all the time, hot or cold! This is a superior quality product that I would highly recommend for parties or day to day use :)
