Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product at a great price point I got this pitcher as a replacement for my Brita faucet filter as it wasn't working on us anymore (the whole filter kept falling off at the slightest touch). I got a $4 off coupon on the Sunday paper so I decided to try the pitcher instead. I was originally thinking of getting the pitcher with an indicator, but then I saw the classic design was on sale so I got this instead. I'm so glad I did. The indicator wasn't much of a loss , and the pitcher setting works better for me than the faucet. It saves me time by just filling up the container, putting it in the fridge and that's it. Only thing I don't like is that some of the contents inside the filter kinda spill out of the filter container when you tip it to pour. But it just stays on the top part of the filter anyway and doesn't pour down onto the filtered water part so I guess I can live with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from just plain awful This is one of the worst products I've ever purchased as far as longevity and expectations are concerned. I had it for about a month when the pitcher simply fell apart. The lid never locked properly, the sensor that was intended to gauge use and provide a time line for filter replacement has never worked, and just last week the handle fell off. I would have been appeased if I could have found some contact information for the company but short of that I am left to vent on the internet. If you're looking for a filter choose another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tasting Living in an old house, I didnt want to risk drinking water from copper pipes so we got a brita pitcher. My husband and I absolutely love the taste of the water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall pitcher filter Good picture, love the handle, very cute and easy to use. Only thing I wish it had was a electronic filter indicator so that I can know when to change the filter exactly (depending on how much of the filter is used) instead of just changing it each month. I think only 2 people use this filter and it says it can be used for 2 months for family of 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use We originally bought the Brita Classic Pitcher for our son when he began college and was living in the dorms. After he moved into his own place, I "borrowed" his Brita pitcher to try it. It's very easy to use, and I actually drink more water now because I leave the pitcher on the counter and pour myself a nice glass of water every time I walk into the kitchen. Thanks for making me a healthier person!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The New Brita Classic I've had my original pitcher for a several years and decided to get a new one, but I'm a little disappointed in the quality of the new pitcher, its much thinner (the pitcher itself)and I'm afraid it won't hold up as long as the 1st one did. The first one I brought several years ago has a strong feel when holding it while its full of water but I don't like the feel of this new one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes City Water Taste Great! We have had our Brita water pitcher for almost two years. Setting the pitcher up for the first time was a cinch! Just wash everything with soap while you soak your first filter in a cup of cold water. Put the pieces together (only goes one way) and insert your filter. I fill it up and let it cycle through. Just to be safe, I dump it out and fill the pitcher up again. We use our filtered water for everything in the kitchen because our city treats their water with lots of chlorine. We absolutely love our Brita pitcher. One negative, it gets kinda slimy once in a while. Make sure you wash it out once a week. Oh did I mention that the water tastes so freaking good! Cold and crisp and does not taste like Chlorine!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The water is SO fresh-tasting! I have drunk tap water all of my life. However, when I went to college in a different town and the water tasted differently than what I was accustomed to, I decided that I wanted to start drinking purified water on a regular basis. Because I care for the environment, though, I didn't want to start harming the earth by using tons of disposable water bottles. Brita filters are the best solution for both issues! An added bonus of the Brita pitchers in your fridge is that the water is super cold and waiting for you whenever you want it. I definitely recommend this product!
