I would really, really like some easy way for my kids to get themselves cold water from the refrigerator. By themselves. Without my help. Alone.
Unfortunately, our refrigerator does not have an automatic water dispenser. So I'm looking for alternatives that are less expensive than a new fridge. ;)
Water bottles don't hold enough; I have to refill regularly and then wait for them to get cold. (Clara really prefers COLD water.) The large pitcher we have in the fridge is great, but it's too heavy/awkward for the kids to lift and pour alone.
I love the idea of something like this, but reviews are mixed, with plenty of people saying it leaks. Same is true for the other brands/styles I've seen - some people love it, and some people say it leaked all over everything.
So can anyone recommend either something along those lines with strong reviews, or another idea I'm not thinking of?
(Oh, and we do have an automatic ice maker, but the ice it makes tastes funny so we don't use it. Not keen on using ice trays or on buying bags of ice regularly.)
