The pitcher comes with one Filtrete Fast Flow Filter plus a lid. Each filter last for 3 months and does an extremely good job at filtering out the chlorine and other things that make tap water taste metallic. When it comes time to change the filter, you can even recycle the used one.
It is amazing how quickly the water filters through. It only takes seconds to fill the 12-cup pitcher. My countertop filtration system takes minutes to filter that much water.
You can take advantage of Filtrete's knowledge by signing up for the Clear Advantages newsletter to have filter change reminders, tips for a healthier home, and special money-saving offers delivered right to your inbox. You can find more of the same by visiting Filtrete Water on Facebook and on Twitter.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Filtrete and received the water pitcher to facilitate my candid review.
