Since I was a kid, I had never spared even a second thought at how a drinks dispenser looks.
In fact, I used to call it a beverage container with a tap.
I was only when I started patronizing fancy bars and cafes that I started to notice how much posher these things can make a place look.
They are one of those things that can potentially destroy the cozy environment of a cafe as an ugly one can really look out of place.
Of course… impressing house guests also played a part.
I can vividly recall a time when it was almost embarrassing to point my guests towards a container box in the kitchen when they ask me where’s the punch.
And don’t get me started with how my previous “containers” leaked and stained the rug.
It was by chance that I stumbled upon the Buddeez unbreakable beverage dispenser.
I was invited to a private event hosted in a cafe and was stunned by these beauties, 4 of them to be exact, standing majestically side-by-side with each other.
Each with a vibrant color beverage inside.
It was then that the cafe owner, who was there himself to make sure the event ran smoothly, introduced me to the Buddeez.
This is just a gorgeous classy dispenser that I had to grab for myself.
And I learned a lot about it.
Pros of the Buddeez unbreakable beverage dispenser
This monster of a water dispenser has a capacity big enough to hold 3.5 gallons of liquid.
That’s more than 10 liters of happiness right there!
If you need to have an idea of how huge that is, consider that the average military grade jerry can holds 10 liters.
So this volume of space would definitely be enough for the average house party while never running dry.
We know how non-aesthetic an empty beverage dispenser left with just ice can look, don’t we. And then there is the tedious work of refilling them if required.
Speaking of ice, it has a separate cone-shaped ice compartment that runs right through the center of the
This means that the ice would chill the drink thoroughly from to to bottom via the walls between ice and drink reservoir.
Even better, it also means that no rouge ice cube would find it’s way to the faucet and block it.
That can be irritating.
It comes with a Tomlinson no-drop faucet, by the way.
On top of that, the ice cone is easily removable for cleaning and maintenance.
The main body is round with smaller curves that resembles flower petal when viewed from above.
This form factor also protects it from dents and cracks when bumping into other furniture.
This can happen when you are moving it around.
But because it is made of plastic resin (food grade BPA-free), I can’t believe that it’s unbreakable as in it’s name. A simple sledge hammer test should be able to refute that claim.
The base is a detachable part of the product that snaps onto the reservoir securely. And has a non-skid base with good traction.
It’s definitely not going to slide and ski about on the countertop.
But what’s really creative about the base is that it is hollow. And the creator has taken the luxury to show us how beautiful it can look with fruits placed inside this area.
It will look fantastic on any classic table.
- 14.4 x 11.9 x 11.7 inches
- 5.3 pounds
Great for lemonade, fruit punch, syrup, etc.
I can truly see this as a centerpiece calling for attention in a lot of house parties when presented this way.
Drawbacks of the Buddeez beverage dispenser
Because it is made of clear plastic, it can be prone to scratches.
But even so, it will be negligible when you have fill it up to the brim with a colored beverage.
And while the capacity of this item is one of it’s selling points, just be mindful that it can pose a safety hazard for kids when they reach for it.
Having this topple over on children is not going to be a good party highlight.
Should you buy his beverage dispenser?
This would be a great addition to the house if you hold regular parties or get-together with friends.
But if you are using it for a family of 3 or 4 as a regular water dispenser, this might be an overkill.
It would also be a no-brainer for office pantries, posh cafes and bars that are looking for one.
I have visited cafes with self-service lemon water served in dispensers. This would just make the small experience that little more pleasurable.
I personally keep it in the cabinet and always look forward to bringing it out for social gatherings.
