I bought two of the dispensers for my sons first birthday party. I was a little hesitant to try them out because I have not had good luck with finding drink despensers that don't leak or constantly drip. I took a gamble on these because the price was amazing and they matched his theme perfectly. Once they were delivered I decided to test each of them in my sink full of water before taking the tags off. I came back to check on them later and to my surprise no leaks . For the party I had one completely full of sweet tea and the other with water. I got so many compliments and everyone commented on how "they did not even leak" which is a common occurrence with cheaper dispensers. I am very impressed with the quality of these Better Homes and Gardens despensers. I have recommended these to a few friends for the same use.
