What experts didn't like

Cannot be used for hot water.
- Top Products
You may not like the handle design. Again, it depends on individual preferences.
- Idses Media
Cannot withstand high temperatures.
- Kitchen Gear Zone
Not heat resistant. Lid is counterintuitive. No spout filtration.
- Tech Gear Lab
The manufacturer clearly states that hot water should never go into this pitcher. So it is only suitable if you are cold brewing your tea. The handle is kind of short. While it might look nice, it can be difficult to lift and pour.
- My Daily Morsel
The handle becomes hard to lift when you pour too much water inside. Avoid hot water.
- Talbott Teas

An Overview On Glass Pitchers

Lemonade, cold-brew coffee, sangria, ice water, hot tea — you can make an endless roster of delicious beverages with a glass pitcher, which come in as many shapes and sizes as the liquids you can store in them. Choose from the most classic round-bodied variety that doesn’t come with a lid. Or go for one that’s equipped with features like a stainless-steel lid with a filter for straining; a lockable, no-drip lid; or scale lines for measuring liquids.

Some of the most advanced pitchers are made of heat-resistant glass, allowing users to store hot and cold beverages. There are even options that are stovetop safe and double as a tea kettle.

Which pitcher is best for you truly depends on how you plan to use it. If you’re looking for a party-ready option to craft your own big-batch cocktails like sangria or margaritas, look for one with a capacity of at least 68 ounces. Or if you plan to make teas or infuse water and other beverages with fruits or herbs, get one with a straining lid.

The Glass Pitcher Buying Guide

  • Heat-safe pitchers are often made from borosilicate glass, which contains boron trioxide, a material that allows for a very  low coefficient of thermal expansion. Because it won’t crack under extreme temperature changes, the material is often used in glassware produced for laboratories, wineries and restaurants.
  • Don’t use your glass pitcher on the stovetop or put it in the dishwasher unless the manufacturer’s instructions indicate it is safe to do so. And even if the product is heat-safe, it may not be suitable for prolong exposure to high temperatures (for example, you may be able to store hot coffee and tea but can’t use it on the stove).
  • If you’re shopping for a pitcher with a lid, pay attention to what material the top is made from; ones made from glass or stainless steel are often more durable and less likely to contain toxins those constructed with plastic.
