Bottom Line: Not worth saving money by buying a cheaper pitcher - get a Kinox or its equivalent (see my other product review for Kinox details).
Positive Product Points

Inexpensive and solid construction quality.

Negative Product Points

Seems to be too wide relative to depth. Makes frothing more difficult.

Detailed Commentary

This was a very cheap pitcher and has the conventional stainless loop for handle. Made of 18-8 steel (more expensive pitchers are made of 18-10 and therefore will hold a better exterior shine or lustre). It's a bit on the shallow side for its liquid capacity of 20 oz.  I found it difficult to get a good froth without spillling over top of pitcher. The thickness of the steel is thinner than that of my other pitchers and thus does not hold the cold for as long (I pre-chill oitchers when possible to get better frothing results). Only real positive point is the low price.

Buying Experience

Easy to find and easy to buy.
