The 8.5-inch bottom is among the widest of the decanters we considered, optimizing aeration of your wine. Lead-free. Dries faster than some other models. Excellent customer service.
No top or stopper. Angled top may make drying a challenge. Some models arrive with chips or imperfections in the glass, though they are replaced under the warranty.
Larger size is ideal for bigger bottles of wine or for entertaining. Side handle can make pouring much easier. Right-priced for a beginning aerator.
No warranty information is listed at all, which is risky for a glass item you have shipped. Some users report the handle makes the carafe vulnerable to early cracking. Not hand-blown.
Lifetime warranty, clear hand-blown crystal decanter and stopper, solid and functional. Excellent and responsive customer service.
Round glass stopper is more decorative than functional and could break if dropped on a hard surface (or roll away). Can be tricky to clean if used for thicker juices or punches.
Carafe, carved wooden stopper, cleaning brush, and upside-down drying rack. Hand-blown, lead-free glass. Angled top for easy pouring. Custom cleaning brush to reach all areas of the inside bottom.
Only a 5-year warranty — many others come with a lifetime warranty. Some customers have had multiple shipments with a chipped carafe, others report the stopper can get stuck in the top and can be difficult or impossible to remove.
Very large aerating chamber (1,800-milliliter capacity), thin glass gives an upscale feel. Lead-free glass and lifetime replacement guarantee.
Smaller base-bottom may make it difficult to stand up properly, so place carefully, and note that a bump to the table could knock it over easily. Taller than other decanters, which can make storage a challenge.

Wine aeration is a must for even the novice wine aficionado. Allowing red wines decant for 30 minutes or more opens up the flavors and smooths harsh tannins, bringing your enjoyment of wine to the next level. Decanters come in a variety of styles and sizes, but the best are made lead-free glass so as not to affect the taste of the beverages and offer easy pouring to minimize splash and drip. Decanters can also be used to bring out complex flavors in a variety of liquors, and make a beautiful, elegant and distinctive addition to any tabletop.
