Glass Measuring Jugs vs. Plastic Measuring Jugs

Glass Measuring Jugs


  • Durability: Glass measuring jugs are durable and resistant to scratches, ensuring a longer lifespan.
  • Heat Resistance: They are resistant to high temperatures, allowing for safe use with hot liquids and facilitating versatility in the kitchen.
  • Transparency: The transparent nature of glass provides clear visibility, making it easy to read measurements accurately.


  • Weight: Glass measuring jugs are heavier compared to their plastic counterparts, which might be a consideration for those who prefer lightweight options.
  • Fragility: Glass is more prone to breakage, especially if dropped, which may pose a safety concern in a busy kitchen.

Plastic Measuring Jugs


  • Lightweight: Plastic measuring jugs are lightweight and easy to handle, making them convenient for everyday use.
  • Affordability: They are generally more budget-friendly than glass measuring jugs, offering a cost-effective solution.
  • Dishwasher Safe: Many plastic measuring jugs are dishwasher-safe, making them easy to clean and maintain.


  • Durability: Plastic may wear out over time, especially with exposure to hot liquids, leading to potential scratches or warping.
  • Staining: Certain ingredients may cause the plastic to stain, affecting the appearance and potentially transferring unwanted colours to other ingredients.
