    I bought a Chinese-made glass pitcher at Target.
    Darn thing only lasted a few days before something
    in the dishrack slid into it and cracked it.
    I think they're a poor value.

    On the other hand, the thick-walled U.S.-made
    glass cookie jar I bought has survived a few
    accidents with only a couple chips to show
    for it. I'm very happy with it. I don't use it
    for cookies -- it's used for marinating meat
    and mushrooms.

    They did have one at Walmart but it said not to wash in
    a dishwasher!

    why would that be?

    Maybe the shape is too awkward for a dishwasher?? Personally, something
    like that I would hand wash anyway.
    Just curious - why does it need to be dishwasher safe?

    Wow...ever thought of that. I don't shop at Walmart anyway....can they
    sink any lower? Sheesh.

    I did see one that is dishwasher safe at chefcatalog.com similar to the
    one Wayne posted.

    I just found (via Sqwertz, thanks again!) a nice Italian made tempered
    glass one and it was shipped to my house. I like it very much. First
    thing I did was toss out the interior "ice tube" (kinda looks
    interesting for kinky ice play though?) and the little plastic twizzle
    stick stirrer. It holds more than my large Fiesta pitcher and we use it
    daily for iced tea.

    Lets see... I pour boiling water into it. I also have put it through the
    dishwasher.
    What more does it need to do?

    No matter how great the quality, you will be able to use the
    dishwasher on it sparingly, as over time, it will become etched, which
    makes it cloudy. I don't ever put my good glassware in the
    dishwasher.

    If it is slight fogginess, it can be removed (believe it or not) with
    nail polish remover and some rubbing. But if it's got a heavy etch on
    it, you can't fix it with anything.

    Just FYI.

    I have those exact same pitchers and they go in the dishwasher all the
    time. I have had no problems with them at all. They are pretty heavy
    duty pitchers.

    Believe it or not, you can find them at Budweiser. Try a search for
    Budweiser pitchers.
    Or perhaps try a bar supply store.

    They're not saying you cannot, they just don't recommend it.

    > why would that be?


    Simple... glassware gets etched in automatic dishwashers... so it's
    really dumb-dumb-dumb to buy good quality glassware unless you're
    willing to wash it by hand.

    A decent heavy glass pitcher is going to cost more than a few bucks,
    so unless you have more dollars than brain cells... only a putz-brain
    is gonna put a glass pitcher in the dishwasher.

    What the frig is so difficult about washing a pitcher by hand...

    yes, you're looking for a glass beer pitcher, approximate size, half-
    gallon, and much heavier weight glass than those available at wally
    world, or any other regular retailer. surfas kitchen supplies in
    culver city, ca has them. they can also be ordered on line at
    www.surfasonline.com.

    harriet & critters in azusa (ms pk (the lady manx who rules the house)
    has returned from the vet, with a diagnosis of a bladder infection and
    is being very, very spoiled, with freshly boiled chicken that has
    been deboned & ground up for her, and fried liver, also ground up. j
    j , the world famous jack russell terrior is of course, more pissed
    off than usual).
