Carafes and Jugs Buying Guide

Carafes are ornamental containers that are designed for holding hot or cold beverages.  Jugs too are used for holding beverages and are similar to the carafes but have handles to hold them securely.

Different Categories of Carafes

Carafes are basically categorised according to their purpose, material and use. 

  • Coffee carafes keep the coffee hot and can be served whenever required.
  • Wine carafes are good to keep wine free of contamination.
  • Thermal carafes are ideal to store hot beverages.
  • Stainless steel carafes are highly durable and easy to maintain.
  • Hand-painted carafes are good as decorative dining accessories.

Selecting the Right Type of Carafes and Jugs

  • Carafes and jugs are normally selected based on the preferences and requirements.
  • The material (glass or metal) of carafes and jugs are chosen based on the beverages that have to be served using them.
  • Dishwasher safe carafes or jugs should be chosen.
  • When selecting wine carafes, the ones that are made using glass might be selected as they last for a longer time than when compared with plastic carafes.
  • Carafes made out of crystals are normally chosen for their elegance and for the memorable experience they provide to the drinkers.
  • Frequent travellers who enjoy drinking coffee can opt for thermal coffee carafes.

Better to Select a Stainless Steel Carafe than a Glass Carafe becuase:

  • Cleaning them in washbasin is easier
  • Do not crack or break easily.
  • Insulated ones have good sealing to keep the coffee hot.
