The Eva Solo fridge carafe gives you an attractive alternative to worn-looking plastic bottles.
You know the problem: Your favourite jug is too wide to sit in the fridge door, or too high for the shelves, and because the lid has been lost, the contents quickly pick up the flavour of the garlic cheese on the middle shelf. To get fridge-cold water, many of us therefore fill old fizzy drinks and mineral water bottles up with tap water, as they fit the fridge better. But anyone who has tried mixing juice in a water bottle knows the problem of juice spilling onto the kitchen surface and sticky patches down the sides of the bottle. And finally, it requires surgical precision to insert slices of lemon or lumps of ice through the bottle mouth.
However, with the new Eva Solo fridge carafe you can pour without spilling a drop. The carafe features the patented, drip-free lip which can be found on a wide range of other Eva Solo products.
The fridge carafe has been designed in a simple, classic milk bottle shape the size of which fits neatly into the fridge door. The mouth of the carafe is large enough for ice cubes and sliced lemon, and also features a flip-top lid that opens automatically when you pour. This means that you avoid the fridge aftertaste or ice cubes splashing down into the tumbler. And, of course, there is the added bonus that the carafe is a decorative element on the table.
The cover is made of neoprene and comes in a variety of bold colours, so you can be sure to find one that matches your own personal style. The cover also has a zip so it is easy to remove before placing the carafe and lid in the dishwasher.

What the Yuppiechefs say
The carafe fits most fridge doors.
As with Eva Solo's tea and coffee-makers, the carafe can be fitted with an insulating cover which keeps the contents cold. It means the carafe is equally ideal for cosy dinners around the dining room table or on warm summer evenings on the patio.
