The handle allows you to handle easier and also hang from the ceiling to prevent from fouling. The handle on the inside piece allows you to hold easily while filling. Will freeze without breaking but allow to thaw. P.M. Drinker 1 1/5 Gallon
Works like it should
Long lasting, birds can drink on all sides, curved handle will not break off, plenty of water for hot days, easy to clean, a little hard to flip over, but doable.
