I got this container because we have family in town and we have a big one. This has been great with serving cooled beverages. This was very easy to use and set up. The base is detachable so when the drink is all gone you can pack it back up in the car. This is like a narrow tube. The center part is big enough to put several cubes of ice in it. We did not have that much so I had just filled the center up with water and then froze the whole center container. You can get one here https://www.amazon.com/Wyndham-House-Cooling-Beverage-Dispenser/dp/B007PAOI7Y/ I was able to place it in the water and the water was able to get cold. This has two ways you can get the drink out; one by pressing the lever down or by pressing the button but either way you can control how much drink you get. The drink dispenses out at a good pace. You have to remember how much space the middle part will take up so that you don’t overflow it. What I love most about this is that you don’t have to tilt this to get the last drop because it dispenses in the center so that everything goes down by gravity. Overall, this was great to have and I would recommend it. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
