Chill Out

Evasolofridgecarafe

Eva Solo's Fridge Carafe evokes the shape of a milk bottle and is designed to fit inside your refrigerator door compartment. A flip-top lid keeps unwelcome flavors out of your chilled water while stored, and a neoprene insulating jacket -- available in multiple colors -- zips up the carafe to keep its contents cool from refrigerator to table.
