Sometimes a thing just screams "Christmas present." That was our impression when we started to see the GurglePot at our favorite kitchen stores. The name refers to the sound the pitcher makes as its liquid is poured out...
It gurgles, fairly loudly on the scale of sounds a few quarts of water can make.
The design and odd gurgling capability was apparently inspired by a pitcher discovered (and enjoyed) by the designer in a rural area of Southern France.
Get one for $40 straight from the source, in one of 12 glossy colors.
