Brita is great in general, but don't buy this model. Spend the extra few dollars and buy one with the feature they call, "easy fill lid." On this basic model, you have to completely remove the lid to refill the pitcher. By comparison, if you have a better Brita pitcher with the easy fill lid feature, you only need to press with your thumb and a portion of the lid opens, allowing you to fill the pitcher. This means you can complete the entire refilling process with one hand, while operating your faucet with the other hand -- if you have the easy fill lid feature which this model does not have. This model requires you to use both hands to remove the lid and set it aside, then fill the pitcher, then use both hands again to replace the lid, which is more difficult than you might imagine, because you have to fit one side of the lid first, then snap the other side into place. If the product descriptions here are not clear, the Brita web site has a product finder which can help you easily identify which models have which features. If you try and save money by buying this cheapest model, you'll end up spending more because you'll have to purchase a second pitcher with the easy fill lid feature, after you get totally aggravated with the cumbersome refill process of this model.
