What is a pitcher?
A pitcher is a mug that is indispensable in restaurants, especially in the USA. Recently, however, jug for beer and other drinks have also become increasingly popular in Germany, so that the practical jugs can be found in more and more bars and private party rooms.
They are usually used either as beer pitcher or for serving water. A classic pitcher has a capacity of about 1.89 litres. However, there are also pitcher that are larger or smaller and are still called pitchers.
Therefore, do not be confused when you are looking for a jug. The selection of different models may cause uncertainty at first. In fact, however, it is a great advantage for you as a buyer. After all, you can choose a beer pitcher that suits your taste and is perfect for the intended use.
What drinks can be served in the pitcher?
Pitcher and water carafes are not only suitable for serving beer or water. Of course, you can also serve other drinks in them. Use them for fruit juices or spritzers, for example, which you can of course cool with a few ice cubes if necessary.
Carafe and jug are therefore versatile, which makes them a worthwhile purchase both for the catering trade and for private use.
Pitcher and carafe in different sizes
A classic jug has a capacity of about 1.89 litres. However, this does not mean that other sizes are not available.
If you prefer a different capacity, you can easily find pitcher with a volume of only 1.5 litres, for example, or larger jugs with a volume of more than two litres.
You can therefore decide for yourself how large the jugor water carafe of your choice should be and choose a model that best suits your individual requirements.
Basically, the largest possible capacity is not always the right choice. In your case, it may also make sense to buy several smaller pitcher. Of course, you know best whether this is the case for you.
Pitcher and carafe made of different materials
Pitcher and water carafes are not only available in different sizes. You can also choose from different materials when buying the jug. In addition to glass, there is also plastic and stainless steel to choose from.
As with the size, it is not necessarily the case that one variant is superior to the others. Glass, plastic and stainless steel each have their own advantages. As long as you pay attention to good quality when buying and choose a model that meets your requirements, your new jug should therefore be able to satisfy you regardless of the material it is made of.
With a carafe or jug made of glass, you are choosing a high-quality jug that you can rely on to last a long time. Of course, this only applies as long as you don't drop it.
Because in this case, you unfortunately have to reckon with glass jug breaking. But as long as you treat your glass pitcher with care, it will serve you faithfully in everyday life and allow you to serve countless beers or other drinks.
A glass pitcher is easy to care for, easy to clean and tasteless, so you don't have to worry about drinking enjoyment. For this reason, many restaurateurs and discerning private individuals prefer this variant to carafe and beer mugs made of other materials.
In addition to classic models made of glass, there are also jug that are made of plastic. This may not be something for every beer lover. However, plastic beer jug do have advantages.
These include the material's resistance to breakage, with which such a jug can score points in a direct comparison with a glass pitcher.
A high-quality plastic jug can usually withstand the odd fall without any problems, so you don't have to worry about its robustness in everyday use or its long service life.
Stainless steel pitcher
Apart from glass and plastic, stainless steel is also used in the production of jugs. With a good water jug made of stainless steel, you are choosing a particularly robust product that is very durable and can easily withstand the stresses of everyday life.
At least for serving water, a stainless steel jug is in any case a good alternative to glass and plastic, which you should at least consider before buying.
If you don't want to serve water directly in glasses or bottles, a water carafe is a great alternative. A high-quality carafe is ideal for placing on a carefully laid table.
Depending on the design of the rest of the tableware, a different model may be the right choice. For example, opt for a plain glass carafe, a simple stainless steel water jug or even a glass water carafe with coloured decorations.
If you would like an individual solution, some suppliers even offer the option of having a text engraved on your glass carafe. Such a glass carafe can also be a good idea as a gift, for example.
Of course, carafe come in different sizes, just like beer mugs. It is therefore up to you whether you prefer a small jug with a capacity of one litre or a large water carafe with a volume of two litres or more.
As you can see, you therefore have a wide choice of different materials, shapes, designs and sizes when you want to buy a water carafe. It should therefore not be a problem for you to find a model that fully meets your personal expectations.
Jugs and carafe with or without lids
Apart from various sizes, shapes and materials, you can also choose between jugs and carafe with or without lids. A model with a lid has the advantage that the contents of the jug are additionally protected.
Especially with carbonated drinks such as mineral water or spritzers, a lid can help to keep the contents of the carafe fresh and enjoyable for longer. Depending on which drinks you want to serve with your carafe in the future and how quickly it is usually emptied, it can therefore make sense to use a jugwith a lid.
Carafe with and without handle
A classic pitcher is equipped with a handle on the side. This makes it easier to hold and pour the drinks into the guests' glasses.
With carafes, however, this is not always the case. In addition to models with handles, you can also choose models without handles. The latter are usually narrower than conventional water or beer jugs.
This ensures that such a carafe can be easily grasped with the hands despite the lack of a handle and that pouring drinks with it is not a great challenge.
Decanting and caraffing: Carafe for wine
In addition to water carafe, there are also carafes that are used for decanting wines. Decanting serves to separate the wine from any undesirable sediment before serving. This is particularly pronounced in red wines, which naturally contain quite a lot of tannins and colourings. How long the wine should remain in the so-called decanter carafe depends primarily on its age. Careful swirling of the decanter can help to speed up the decanting of the wine in it.
In addition to decanting, transferring from the bottle to a carafe is also used to aerate the wine, ensuring that it can develop its full aroma before drinking. This procedure, known as caraffing, can be particularly crucial in improving the flavour of very young wines.
Carafes intended for caraffing wine usually have a particularly wide base. This ensures that as much surface area as possible can come into contact with the air.
What do pitcher and carafe cost?
As large as the selection of different models is, so is the price range for pitcher and carafe. Depending on the brand, model and material, there are sometimes considerable differences in the purchase price. Particularly noble carafe made of stainless steel can sometimes cost well over 100 euros. On the other hand, you only have to invest a fraction of this amount to purchase an inexpensive model.
Basically, you do not have to spend a fortune to buy a pitcher or carafe with a satisfactory quality. Although price should not be the only decision criterion, you can actually find good products relatively cheaply. If you value a convincing price-performance ratio, it is best to take a look at our shop. There you will find high-quality pitcher and carafe that you can buy cheaply online. We are sure that you will find something in our assortment that meets your expectations.
Buying beer mugs and water carafe: What to look out for?
If you want to buy a water carafe or a beer mug, there are of course a few things you should pay attention to. After all, you certainly want a product that meets your expectations, gives you pleasure for as long as possible and, ideally, reliably fulfils its task for several years.
Therefore, when buying your pitcher, make sure that it is of good quality. This does not mean that you have to buy the most expensive model you can find. However, as is often the case, excessive thriftiness is not a good idea here either and, as experience has shown, usually leads to a life span that leaves much to be desired.
Apart from that, you should consider how big you want your pitcher to be and which material you prefer before buying it. Of course, the right size depends decisively on the pitcher's planned area of use. If you only want to use the jug privately, for example to put fresh water on the table at dinner with your family, a jug with a volume of one litre may be sufficient. If, on the other hand, the pitcher is to be used to serve beer in the catering trade or at private parties, a larger pitcher may be the better choice.
The choice of material is also largely up to you and your ideas. Glass usually looks particularly noble and is therefore the first choice for many private individuals and restaurateurs when buying a pitcher. In principle, however, there is nothing to be said against using robust and break-resistant plastic pitchers instead. For serving water, a stainless steel water jug can also be a good choice.
