    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The pour spout spills everytime I had the classic shape Brita filter for 10 years and it worked fine but my mother in-law complained that it was old and bought a new one when she was watching our place. She bought the Chrome one probably because it was more expensive and in her mind that means better but it spills every time we use it. At first I thought it was just the little flap being down but even with it propped up water spills. I had a friend who had one like it about 6 years ago and it did the same thing. Fix your flawed design. I'm going to take it back and try out the Classic since that looks like my old one

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome pitcher, but... This is our 4th or 5th Brita pitcher over the years. We love the taste of our water after it comes from the pitcher, and will never stop using one. However, we fell for the sexy chrome look of this one and seemed to overlook the fact that the fill lid's hinge is flimsy. We've only had this pitcher for about 6 months now, and already one of the smallplastic tabs that makes up the hinge connection point snapped off while filling. Too bad the product planners didn't do enough durability testing and redesign. Argh!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taste and even feel the difference. Purchased in a new Brita pitcher & dispenser water filtration system, hoping to help improve the taste of our tap water ( I drink a lot of tap water), and to make coffee & tea with. I am amazed how much better the taste and feel of the water improved, it is like night and day different; I had been concerned about the smell and taste/feel of the city tap water, for too much copper, mercury, cadmium, chlorine, and excessive fluoride. This is the first filtering system not attached to the faucet itself, and I was not sure what to expect at first, but after my first couple glasses of water, and coffee today, I am well pleased with the pitcher system, and very very satisfied with how much difference it has made in our coffee.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from TOP DOES NOT STAY ON! Maybe my model is older and it has been improved. The top on our model does not stay on. VERY FRUSTRATING! it continually falls off or is knocked off. When you fill the dispenser with tap water, you have to wait for all the water to filter or it pours out all over the counter! Horrible design! Do not buy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from plastic hinge holding fill lid broke in two months This design looks beautiful and looks good on the table. Full points for that. But usage wise its not that great. Its not nearly as well made as other Brita filters I have used. Changing filter and cleaning of pitcher is a pain as taking out the upper lid is pretty difficult. It is quite delicate so you can not use force to pull it out. The plastic hinge holding the fill lid already broke for me in less than two months of regular usage. Brita could have done a better job considering this costed me about $35. Also I have never noticed the filter indicator light blinking like it did for my previous brita, not sure if it works. I am already thinking of replacing it with cheaper regular plastic one as those are more durable then this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a dorm room. I bought this pitcher because there is no filtered water in my dorm. It is very convenient in the sense that I can fill it up my Nalgene or Camelbak and have great tasting water. I also have a Brita Bottle, but sometimes I enjoy switching water bottles. I would definitely recommend this to anyone trying to save money, and anyone trying to cut down on bottled water waste. The only downside is that the water takes a while to filter through.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great company & product!! My fiancé and I purchased a Brita pitcher from our local grocery and had a problem putting on the lid. When we did our initial setup, the tab on the lid ended up breaking and so it would spill water out. After contacting the company, Brita sent us a check covering the cost to replace the pitcher and a few months later sent us a brand new pitcher with their redesigned lid!!!! Such an amazing response from a corporation that you don't ever hear of happening anymore! We HIGHLY recommend Brita products and are so happy and comforted in knowing that they stand behind their products, as well as having proactive customer relations!! Can't say enough wonderful things!!!

    Change Your Filter

    Step 1

    Remove old filter, then flush the new Brita filter with cold water for 15 seconds.

    Step 2

    Insert the Brita filter into the reservoir, lining up the notch in your pitcher with the groove in the filter. Press firmly.

    Step 3

    Fill the reservoir with cold tap water, and you’re done.
