There are a lot of different kinds of pitchers available in the market for your use. One of the most common types of pitchers available is made out of plastic because it’s very cheap and inexpensive. It’s also the most lightweight option and is highly durable because it wouldn’t get broken into pieces easily once you drop it. However, plastic pitchers are also one of the most harmful containers you could use because of the materials used to make it. If you want cold or frozen drinks, this would also be the most likely option to break easily – especially those which are made out of low quality materials. Even though it’s less prone to breakage, it does accumulate scratches easier. But the worst thing about it is that if you don’t clean and maintain it properly, there would be a tendency for it to not only absorb the stains from the different drinks you put in it, but as well as the odour. Some also carry BPA which may be extremely harmful to our health.
Another one to consider is pitchers made out of metal which are the most durable kind. Mostly, restaurants use this kind of pitchers because they look more professional compared to others. Also, metal pitchers don’t retain the odours of previous liquids placed inside it. What’s great about it is that it’s also very easy to clean because it’s resistant to stain. However, if you’re opting to use it for the home setting, this is actually the most expensive option out of all the materials used to make pitchers. Also, because it’s not transparent, it may be pretty hard to mix drinks or get the proper consistency for your drinks. Even though metal pitchers are highly durable, if you would not be able to handle them properly, some may incur dents, especially if dropped.
So what exactly is the best pitcher material to use for your home? Well, glass pitchers, of course! At first, it may seem like glass pitchers have a higher tendency to get broken (especially if you drop it accidentally!) but believe it or not, most glass pitchers have a more durable design and build compared to plastic pitchers. It may be a bit more expensive compared to plastic pitchers, but it’s actually a great investment and worth every cent.
