I fell in love with this gourd when I saw it. I thought it was going to be too big, but it works perfectly. I take it to work every morning. I had to buy another one because I forgot it at a restaurant and someone took it. However, I was able to buy a new one, and it works amazingly. The only bad thing is that the top cracked a little. I think I accidentally didn't clean it well after use. But it still good!
