FAQ

Are your pitchers made of pure copper?

Yes, all of our pitchers are made of 100% pure high-grade food-safe copper. Our copper pitchers are of exceptional high quality and will last a lifetime.

We are sorry to say that many other manufacturers (mostly based in India and selling on Amazon, Ebay and Etsy) falsely claim to sell pure copper pitchers that are actually only plain metal pitchers plated with copper. The copper plating will start to rub off these pitchers after only a few months of use! Many of our customers came to us and bought one of our pure copper pitchers after having a bad experience with one of these manufactures. While these manufacturers are able to offer their pitchers for sale at a lower price than our pitchers, they are not the real thing!

Are your copper pitchers handmade?

Yes, all of our copper pitchers are handmade by skilled artisans using traditional methods. As a result, every pitcher will be unique and may have some imperfections which add to the character of the piece.

Why are your copper pitchers hammered?

All of our copper pitchers are hammered by hand for two important reasons: to create a beautiful aesthetic that will look amazing in your kitchen, and to increase the surface area of copper on the inside of the pitcher which makes contact with the water stored in it. The greater the physical contact between the water and the copper pitcher, the greater the health benefits for you.

What does water stored in a copper pitcher taste like?

It takes fresh, clean and pure! Although you might expect the water to taste metallic, it's nothing of the sort. Although water stored in a copper pitcher will absorb the beneficial health quantities of copper, it doesn't absorb enough copper to noticeably change the taste of the water.

Can I use lemon with my copper pitcher?

There are plenty of benefits of drinking lemon water and it's a great idea to combine those benefits with the benefits of water stored in a copper pitcher! To maximize the health benefits, allow water to sit in your copper pitcher overnight and then combine the water with lemon slices or lemon juice in a cup or separate container. Copper can react with certain acids, including citric acid found in lemons, so it's best to only use water in your copper pitcher.

Will water stored in a copper pitcher become alkaline?

Yes, water stored in a copper pitcher will become naturally alkaline. Drinking alkaline water helps balance the body's pH levels.

What are the dimensions of your copper pitchers?

Our 1.5 liter pitchers are approximately 8 inches in height and approximately 4.5 inches in diameter.

Our 2.1 liter pitchers are approximately 9.5 inches in height and approximately 5 inches in diameter.

How do I clean my copper pitcher?

Easy! Your copper pitcher will naturally tarnish over time, but it is very easy to clean. Simply sprinkle a pinch of salt on a slice of lemon, allow the salt to dissolve, and then gently rub it on the surface of your pitcher. The lemon and salt will form a mixture that will naturally remove the patina and restore the copper’s shine. Once done, rinse with water and dry well. The inside of the copper pitcher will also patina, but this has no effect on the quality of the water stored inside the bottle. We recommend cleaning the inside of your pitcher every now and then with warm water and a drop of liquid soap, and then rinsing it well. However, be sure to never wash your copper pitcher in a dishwasher.
