Review: Filtrete Filtered Water Pitcher

We have been using a 2-gallon freestanding countertop water filtration system for almost exactly one year now. We have actually been very happy with it, but my husband and I have to remember to unplug it when it is not in use in order to reduce usage of standby power. That is why the Filtrete Water Pitcher is a near-ideal solution. It does not use any extra electricity to have room temperature or cold water since the pitcher easily fits in the refrigerator. The only thing it does not offer is instant hot water like our filtration system does, but that is just a minor inconvenience.

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.
