Practicality

The Menu water carafe is an elegant choice which will give you the functionality of a great carafe and the design of a brand with the goal of creating beautiful objects.

It is very easy to handle for an everyday use. Its greatest advantage possibly is the mechanism of the lid and the stopper, as well as its shape, which provides a very strong and nice grip. The fact that it's wider at the base, makes the carafe very stable on any flat surface you want to place it.

It's made out of glass considerably thick which is not easily breaking or cracking. The carafe perfectly fits into the door of a conventional refrigerator. But you can double-check this with our overview of the sizes & diameters (further up "sizes"). It's a very practical and functional item to place close-by in order to remind you of drinking.

The elegant lid comes with a mechanism which automatically opens when you pour, ensuring that foreign objects stay out and ice cubes, slices of lemon and mint leaves stay in. Pouring water without dripping is easy with the Menu water carafe. However, it must be hold at some distance from the glass when pouring, otherwise the water could splash. When done correctly, the water carafe pours a fair amount of water without spilling it all over the table. 

In addition, this carafe is also perfect for those of you who like flavouring water with fruits or herbs. It won't retain any flavour or odour as it's made of glass and not plastic. The large opening makes it very easy to refill with water or add anything you like inside. 

Cleanability

The carafe's main glass part is dishwasher-safe while the lid is made of silicone and stainless steel. You should hand-wash those parts as the chemicals used in dishwashing can cause the metal to become matte and eventually cause it to look roughened. Similarly, you should be careful when placing the glass carafe into the dishwasher as its shape might make it a bit difficult to balance it.

Taking amazon customer experiences and comments as a base, we recommend you follow the advisements explained above and only clean the glass part of the carafe in the dishwasher and hand-wash the rest.

As well as most glass carafes, Menu water carafe, generally, is easy to clean as you can disassemble every part. However, it might be difficult to get rid of the stain formed at the bottom, due to the shape of the container. If you realise that the carafe is not as clean as it should, even after putting it into the dishwasher, we recommend you to use the right tools for cleaning it.
