Honestly, the starter kit pitcher is the worst.
It leaks, no matter how hard I tighten it. I bought two on Amazon before I realized this, and they all leak. It’s also way too tall to fit in my fridge, except in the door.
I replaced it with Nalgene-branded labware via Amazon:
This one has no odor (PPCO being close to what the consumer-grade Nalgene water bottles are made from), is autoclavable (and dishwasher safe, of course), fits in more places, doesn’t leak, and doesn’t require superhuman strength to open. It also has no gaskets so is two pieces instead of five. I used the vinyl Soylent bumper sticker that came with the starter kit as a half-way marker, but it’s still quite easy to eyeball.
For the sake of graduation (and you did to a nice job of that by the way), I simply measured my glassware. All of my seemingly missmatched glasses turned out to be exactly 450ml, which is a perfect meal for me.
