Rated 4 out of 5★ by reviewerc1 2 gal Water Jug: Very Functional This 2 gallon water jug from Rubbermaid is sturdy and good quality overall. Being able to pour from the top or from the bottom spout is a useful option and the jug works well at keeping liquids cold even in very warm weather.Two things that could improve the jug's design are:- Make the top easier to screw on. Sometimes, the top can be a little annoying as you need to make sure it's on squarely or it will not screw on properly.- Somehow fiuring out how to make the bottom spout a little easier to use. It can be difficult for a child to use and it doesn't stick out far enough to easily get a larger cup underneath.Overall though, a very worthwhile purchase 01/05/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Lumpy Great for Lemonade I like this product for a lemonade stand. There is a spout at the top to drink out of but only if you are a strong person. A child would have a hard time lifting the jug to take a drink out of it, as I have found out. I'm sure most people would realize that while shopping at the store though because it is a big cooler for a child. Great for soccer practice too. 09/04/2008
Rated 3 out of 5★ by churchsoundman12 UPS use I bought two of these for UPS. Almost immediately I noticed that I would need to reinforce the balls of the handles in the sockets. When the jug is full the handle pops out while carrying. I used mirror clips/brackets for this. Also don't drop the jug while it is full or the lid may shatter. Rubbermaid doesn't sell replacement lids or handles. Would I buy again? I did, and immediately reinforced the handles. I do not expect that handle to ever come off. Those two water jugs supply cold water for three sort Aisles, 18 people. 08/28/2010
Rated 1 out of 5★ by mudduck bad product I did not like the handle it comes apart, and I had to put wire for the handle. It work very good with the wire. 04/14/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★ by JimB Handle ruins the whole product Bought this so my son could bring plenty of cold water to bike races. It's the perfect size to insure he doesn't run out in the course of a long day.The quality of the handle and the cover make what presented itself as the perfect product virtually useless. The handle attachments aren't strong enough for a full two gallons of water! While carrying it out to the car before a race, the handle catastrophically detached (that means both sides popped out) and the weight of the water was more than the cover could withstand when it fell about a foot to the pavement. The bottom line is the handle is useless when full and I'm stuck with a shattered cover rendering the product unuseable. 08/01/2010
Rated 3 out of 5★ by jepete 2 gal.water jug Handle broke on both jugs that I have. Need to get new handles. Jugs are great for what I use them for, but without the handles they are difficlt to use. 11/23/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by eimalou So far does the job I've owned the 2 gallon dispenser for about 10 years. I haven't ever had a problem with the handle - maybe they changed the handle since 10 years ago. We primarily used it in the kitchen during the summer to hold ice water or lemonade. The only problem I've had with it was that there must have been something sweet left on the dispenser (little black bulb), because I stored it in the garage during the winter and mice ate a hole through that part, so I'm online requesting a replacement valve. 02/23/2013
