This is the easiest and simplest product to use for clean, healthy water. I've been using the system for over 10 years and have never had the problems the previous people spoke about. The one thing you have to remember regarding the filter, is that you have to soak it for at least 10 minutes in cold water. If there is any extra charcoal that needs to come out of the filter, this takes care of it. After that, just keep filling up the top with water and you will have delicious, clean water to drink!
I think everyone should give it a try, so we can save all those plastic bottles from going into the trash!
This does exactly what I expected it to do. The water at work has a weird smell and taste. I didn't want to have to keep bringing bottled water in so I gave this a shot. The water tastes great! As good as if not better than bottled water. Some people have spoke on the price of the filters, but I'm still spending less than what I did on bottled water so it works out!
Having grown up on deep-well, I was unable to enjoy the chlorine taste and odor of city water after I moved into my new house. Out of curiosity, I read the labels on the box of this product and noticed that it removed the smell and taste of chlorine from water. It was on sale for $11 at the time, so I decided to give it a try. Not only does the water taste fantastic now, I enjoy the taste so much that I have finally accomplished my goal of avoiding soda and tea.
This pitcher fits nicely in my small refrigerator. I use it mainly to fill my ice trays. Recently moved into a senior high rise that is 35 years old and was concerned about the water pipes. I feel like my water is cleaner and safer now that I use the filtered pitcher. I also fill my water bottle and save money and energy from those disposable bottles.
Filtering 45 fl oz of water takes less than 3 minutes, which is faster than I think.
This pitcher is nice looking, has a perfect size and completely does what it is meant to do. It takes even visibly dirty water and filters it and makes it drinkable. Definitely worth the investment. If there are over four family members living in the house, you'd probably need a bigger size, but other than that, it's great.
I bought this one because it was the cheapest. That being said, this thing is incredible. I'm definitely going to buy the filtration system when this filter dies, but if you're looking to just test out what Brita has to offer, I suggest you start here.
The filter is incredibly slow, but isn't clean, great tasting water worth it?
Water tastes fresh and clean, better than bottle water. Water filters rapidly for refilling pitcher.
Great size for dorm fridge but started leaching charcoal into the water after only 2 weeks of use. Still waiting on reply from Brita to find out what is wrong with the thing. Replacement filters are $10 each plus shipping!
My Brita Slim Water Pitcher does everything I want and need. I know it's working because my water smells and tastes wonderful, instead of smelling and tasting like the stinky river water it is. The Brita Slim is uncomplicated, easily assembled and at a price I can afford on my Senior's budget.
I live alone and this is a good size and at $9.99 it was cheap enough for me. I've been using Brita pitchers for some time now but the filters are too expensive for me. The day after I bought this Adli sold theirs for $7.XX. Luckily they had filters too that fit the Brita pitcher at 3/$6.99. I bought 6.
I was so impressed when i first unwrapped the package. It was really good and i immediately started reading the manual and proceeded to assemble it. Fits well in small refrigerator and easy to clean. Do read the manual before using. Never listen to the people saying the discharge of charcoal in water. It happens only if you DO NOT follow the proper (yet clear) instructions attached. Great product and i love it.
Great product for a great price. YOU MUST follow the directions when using it for the first tome. Everyone that complains about black flakes, rocks, or clouds....I bet 90% of them didn't follow the directions. Good for 2-4 people, if you are using it for more people, you will have to fill it up A TON. I would suggest getting a bigger pitcher. Actually makes the water taste better! I can tell, but some people can't taste a difference.
This pitcher is very annoying. The lid is not very secure, and as you start getting towards the bottom of the water, you need to hold the lid in place, and hope for the best. The filter will just fall right out. I purchased this for work, so I am careful not to pour the water onto a cup on the desk, but to hold it over the trash can in case there is any accidental spill of lid or filter. I cannot pour the 5 cups of water into the pitcher all at once, because it doesn't fit, and when the 5 cups are in, there is still room for one more cup, so I actually do 6 cups of water. The pitcher is not at all a good design. However, the price was excellent for a work pitcher of very good water. Therefore, it served my need - having great tasting water at work by spending as little as possible on the pitcher.
I have used the classic version of the Brita water filter for over 10 years. Decided to upgrade to new modern pitcher with sleek design royal blue and digital reminder of filter removal. The design is awful. The lid does not fit properly. The first couple of days the filter light did not blink when you poured a glass of water. Also, when you put water in top tank to filter the water, water somehow leaks into pitcher handle then leaks all over everything. Lid comes off when trying to pour water and spills water everywhere. Very very disappointed.
I LOVE THE SLIM (NON-TRADITIONAL) DESIGN OF THIS PITCHER. IT FITS WELL INTO AN OVER-STOCKED REFRIGERATOR. THE REPLACEMENT CARTRIDGE COSTS ALMOST AS MUCH AS THE PITCHER. THIS PITCHER COMES W/1 CARTRIDGE. AS LONG AS THIS PITCHER IS RECYCLED WHEN IT'S TIME TO REPLACE THE CARTRIDGE & @ THIS GREAT PRICE, I CAN PURCHASE A NEW PITCHER (INCL. 1 CARTRIDGE) EVER TIME I NEED TO REPLACE THE CARTRIDGE I LOVE THIS PITCHER!! ~ CLASSIC/SOPHISTICATED DESIGN
@ A BARGAIN PRICE!
I drink water from a well and it usually both smells and tastes bad. I live alone and buy 2 gallons of water a week for drinking. I'm a senior and don't like carrying those heavy bottles. The water from the Brita Slim Water Filter Pitcher tastes great and has no odor. I've only had it for two weeks but so far I love it and don't buy bottled water anymore.
Pitcher is a good size, for small family of 2 or 3. If consume a lot of water you might consider one with a larger capacity, since need refill often. Great Price for a 5-cup since when compare with the 6-cup, this is half the price (6-cup = $19.99) That makes no sense. you could purchase 2 of this pitcher for that price (Two 5-cup). Anyway, great little Water Pitcher, serve it purpose. This pitcher is narrow so fits into tight spot in your Fridge. Another good thing with Brita is -their filters are universal to all their pitchers, regardless of size. Made of sturdy plastic material, but am sure will break if not handle carefully.
I purchased this because i like the fresh test of filtered water, well long story short im happy with this and im not happy with this item, thing i am happy with is that the water tastes great! but when i left my cup on my nightstand over night and looked in the bottom of it the next morning there was black particles in the bottom of the cup after closer inspection there were metallic and black flakes....this filter doesnt remove the things i dont want to drink like these particles at the bottom of my cup.
the filter for this pitcher does not reduce lead. It reduces a few other minerals. So if you need one for old lead plumbing etc, look at the faucet filters or other ones.
