I really like the style of their dispensers. Because my first one broke in less than a year, I looked for others but could not find any with the styling they have. The problem is that the spout mechanism, even with very gentle use, will maybe last for a year before it breaks. The spout is basically just plastic and it wears out very quickly. We only used room temperature, filter water in the dispenser and only two adults ever used the spout. It would be nice if they would just insert a little quality into the unit.
this is nice when you have parties so they can serve themselves
I got this as a wedding gift and pulled it out for the first time today. I had it completely set up and full of mimosaas for shower guests and the nozzle didn't work at all!! It was rather embarrassing. Heading to Macys now to return it!
Very nice, a little thin, but nice quality and very nice
Very nice and elegant. Exactly what I wanted for the holidays. Perfect for entertaining.
I own two of the Wellesley drink dispensers. I absolutely love them! I've used them for several dinner parties/showers (up to 75 people) and always get compliments on them. I do store mine in their original box with the original foam to protect them. If they are not stored properly, they will break (they are crystal). I treat them no differently them I treat my extensive Waterford collection (which they compliment beautifully!). I am actually looking to purchase a third--maybe switch it up with a different design.
Bought 2 of the Westbury drink dispensers after Thanksgiving. They hold 3 gallons of liquid each. Finding that we rarely need to serve that amount, even with the frequent large groups we entertain. Though beautiful and functional, storing them in the boxes (as packaged) left me with an easily broken glass lid. If I were to buy again, I'd look at getting one with a metal lid instead. Not sure if a replacement lid can be gotten and now, I am without the use of a dispenser until one is found.
Perfect for entertaining and the holiday season? Nice glass and very elegant
