Top 10 Best Glass Pitchers in 2017 Reviews

Just like any other kitchen accessory, several factors need to be considered before laying your money down for a pitcher. Hurriedly picked beverage jugs may bring you lots of surprises at the table and loads of inconveniences during parties or other gatherings.

So, what makes a good glass pitcher?

Usage

What you intend to serve with the pitcher will affect your decision by a larger percentage. A beer pitcher, for instance, distances itself from an infusion carafe. The former should be relatively bigger and should have a wider opening and spout than the latter.

Capacity

The amount of beverage a pitcher can hold will depend on where you intend to use it. These jugs are available in all sizes from as little as 40 Oz up to 80 Oz.

Thick Vs Thin

Truth be told, most people think that thick glass translates to high heat resistant. You’ll be amazed to realize that most thick glasses shatter easily than their thin competitors. However, it also depends on the construction material which is our next considerable feature.

Building material; Borosilicate

Carafes made from borosilicate are known to be thin and lightweight. They are also good in resisting high heats and make the best infusers. However, they feel flimsy and require special care.

Space savers

You should also opt for a jug that will fit in your refrigerators and on your table tops with much ease.

Having said that, let’s see which glass pitchers made in our competitive list of;

10. Artcome 64 Oz Heat Resistant Water Pitcher
