Lightweight & Durable Plastic Pitchers

Plastic pitchers are popular and practical tabletop beverage service vessels for serving drinks in casual dining and outdoor events. Their lightweight construction makes them easier to carry and handle. They are available in round and rounded square shapes, multiple colors, and capacities up to 3 qt (2.83 L). Buy plastic pitchers with lids if you need a spill-resistant serving solution, ensuring freshness and ease of transportation.

Are Plastic Pitchers Safe?

Plastic pitchers can be safe, but their safety depends on the type of plastic used and how they are used. Here are some key points to consider:

  • BPA-Free: Ensure the plastic pitcher is BPA-free. BPA (Bisphenol A) is a chemical traditionally used in manufacturing certain plastics and resins. It can seep into food and drinks from containers made with BPA, posing potential health risks. Many plastic products, especially those meant for food and beverage, are now made without BPA.
  • Food-Grade Plastic: The pitcher should be made from food-grade plastic, which means the plastic is deemed safe for contact with food and drink.
  • Temperature Exposure: Avoid using plastic pitchers for hot liquids, as heat can cause certain plastics to release chemicals more readily.
  • Microwave and Dishwasher Use: Unless the pitcher is marked as microwave-safe or dishwasher-safe, it's best not to use it in these appliances. The heat can degrade the plastic over time, potentially leading to the release of chemicals.
  • Condition of the Pitcher: Regularly inspect plastic pitchers for any signs of wear, cracks, or discoloration. Damaged plastic can harbor bacteria and may leach chemicals more readily.
  • Recycling Codes: Check the recycling codes on the bottom of the pitcher. Types 2 (HDPE), 4 (LDPE), and 5 (PP) are generally considered safer options for food and drink use.
