Stay Refreshed with Glass Pitchers & Ceramic Pitchers

Give yourself any number of stylish reasons to stay hydrated and refreshed when you start a collection of glass pitchers & ceramic pitchers. These vessels have been popular for centuries as ways to share water, wine, juice and more. Now, they're available in fine materials like smoked glass, crystal, ceramic, brass and more. Paired with carafes in bold colored finishes, you'll have everything you need to always have a delicious beverage nearby. Fill your glass pitchers & ceramic pitchers to keep in the refrigerator, keep a monogrammed carafe by the bed and have a few extras on hand to make iced tea or lemonade when the mood strikes.

Choosing Between Glass Pitchers & Ceramic Pitchers

When beginning to shop for your next pitcher, consider the differences between glass pitchers & ceramic pitchers in order to decide which you should get this time. Then, next time you can get something a little different.

  • Glass pitchers are transparent, which many people like because they can see how much of their preferred beverage remains in the pitcher. Glass pitchers are also classic and versatile.
  • Ceramic pitchers may be opaque but they offer a wide variety of artisanship. Look for sculpted styles that suit or expand your current kitchen aesthetic. Ceramic pitchers make great gifts because of their diversity.
  • Both retain temperature well, are easy to keep clean, resist chipping or breakage with appropriate care and make great gifts for friends, colleagues or loved ones.

Serving Beverages Everyday and At Parties

As much as you love your personal ritual of pouring your water or tea from pitchers, others find your hospitality just as charming, so be sure to have plenty of glass pitchers & ceramic pitchers when company comes over.

  • Set up a water pitcher at a station near your bar or where you'll be serving wine or spirits. This lets people mingle and care for themselves, knowing you've taken the time to care for them in advance.
  • Create signature juice blends or spritzers to set out at a brunch or holiday party. You can use them to mix into cocktails or enjoy on their own in goblets.
  • Keep thermal carafes of gourmet coffee ready for after the meal when you host a dinner party. The coffee lets everyone prepare for a dessert course or finishes the meal with a light pick-me-up.

Selecting Pitcher Styles to Match Your Serveware

Your pitchers don't have to match your serveware exactly. Glass pitchers & ceramic pitchers are made for specific purposes, collecting or bringing out at special occasions, so they can stand out as a statement piece in your home.
