Are you sure it needs a lid? I find lots without. :umm:

This isn't tempered glass, but it does have a lid.

brookyann, I see your dilemma! I have often seen replacement glass blender pitchers at thrift stores and such. And of course you can just buy them straight out. But--not the most attractive pitcher in the world....
Will keep on the lookout....

eta: As I look at search results, I guess the word "storage" implies that it's not good for hot liquids. Maybe you can get a nice glass pitcher with lid and just transfer hot liquids once they've cooled?

i have some beautiful glass pitchers with fitted rubber lids. i think they are 2 liters. i also have a 1 liter one. i bought the first one at pcc in seattle, but i have found the same brand at the wedge here, which is where i bought my subsequent ones. i will go look today or tomorrow at the brand (since the pitchers themselves are unmarked, which i adore) and report back for you.

i'm not sure if they are tempered or not, but i fill them with boiling hot water straight from the kettle and there has never been a problem. i brew pitchers-full of tea at a time this way, let them cool to room temp, and then stick them in the fridge. i use a mesh tea basket which sits perfectly in the mouth of the pitcher, and fill it with loose tea of my choice. i will get the brand of the basket for you, too. :)

i also pre-filter water and store them in the pitchers in my fridge, too, so that if i have a large cooking project i don't have to worry about waiting to make enough filtered water.

i have several of the 64 oz size and one of the 37 oz size.

i forgot to look at the brand of the tea caddy for you. i'll do that when i next go to the co-op.

ok, went back to the wedge. this is my tea caddy that fits perfectly in the glass pitchers i linked to:

it's only $3.99 at the co-op, so it's more expensive on the site.

It's not a pitcher...but....growing up we used to make sun tea in large pickle jars. The jars came from restaurants; all you had to do was ask. There was no residual pickle smell after a hot soapy washing. The glass is thick, making it less fragile to sit outside all day.

I'm sleepy, but as of a few minutes ago... my Brita pitcher isn't terribly functional. I strongly feel I saw a glass one at some point in my life. Did Brita ever make a glass pitcher? I'm beginning to believe I fabricated this memory. Oooo... is it possible to just replace the top portion of a Brita pitcher. Zzzzz....research later. Want. Filtered. Water. :drool:
