Different Types of Pitcher Materials

Many times, people overlook to check the material while selecting the pitcher for home purpose. This usually happens because the material has a little impact when used daily. It is important to note that pitcher material doesn’t affect the blending power but, it doesn’t mean pitcher material is not at all important to consider while selecting the pitcher. Three types of materials are used to make the pitcher. These materials are plastic, metal, and steel. Here, I am mentioning the pitcher made from different materials with its advantages and disadvantages.
1. Plastic
Plastic material is commonly used for making the pitcher and the pitcher made from plastic is available in different sizes and shapes. Cheap quality pitcher uses a low-grade plastic which can get scratched, staining easily, and odor retention when used for a long time. In normal cases, plastic contains BPA is a chemical which causes a health problem. In contrast to cheap ones, an expensive plastic pitcher uses a high-quality plastic or copolyster that offers durability, scratch resistance, and heat resistance to the pitcher.
Lightweight, inexpensive, and break-resistance are the features of plastic pitcher. Whereas, hazardous to health, easy to scratch, attracts stain easily, and in-efficient in controlling the odor are some disadvantages of using a pitcher of low-quality plastic.
2. Glass
High-quality pitchers usually have glass jars. As we all know, glass is a very delicate material that can be easily shattered with a sudden drop. But, it is more durable than plastic. Glass has the property that it doesn’t retain odors, scratch, or even stains. Owing to these features, glass pitchers cost high as compared to plastic ones and yes, it is heavier than plastic. The best part of glass pitcher is that even if you keep the lid closed for hours of your pitcher, still it won’t give the foul smell.
Stain-resistant and scratch-resistant are some positive features of a glass pitcher and the negative side of glass pitcher is that it is heavy, prone to breakage, and expensive as compared to plastic.
3. Metal
Some of the pitchers are also available in the market with stainless steel material. These containers are available in the market at a high price. This is the most durable range and is away from regular wear and tear.
Durable, stain resistant, and professional look are some positive points of the metal pitcher and the negative side of metal pitcher is that it’s high price and may cause dent if not handled carefully.
