I've got an array of pitchers, and can say the following...Barista Hustle
Just got this, it's got a lot of potential and has a great geometry on the spout. For me it's a little big on the diameter, but other than that, it's beautiful. The black coating is not as nice as I'd like and takes on finger prints and water marks easily. If I were to get another, I'd get the stainless version. It's a little more fragile feeling than I was expecting, the walls are decently thin, at least compared to the Rattleware ones.Toroid
Tried one before, not this brand, but personally the toroid bottom did not improve my steaming technique.Motta
I got a knock-off one. The higher and wider spout makes it harder for me to pour intricate art.
I pour for small drinks primarily - cortado to flat white size. If you're looking on a budget, I have this pitcher
and it's actually quite good, especially for the price. Wall is thin, and spout design is similar to BH, it's just a little smaller. Not sure if mine was made "just right," but it's the cheapest/best value pitcher I have.
