Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOR ENGINEERING - BEAUTIFUL SCULPTURAL DESIGN I thought I was going crazy until I found these reviews. For weeks I had been trying to figure out where all the water on the countertop was coming from. I can't believe Brita left an opening at the top of the handle that allows over-flow water to drain out through a partially sealed bottom of the handle. It's almost as if they forgot to put a part in some of the pitchers during manufacturing. And the LED light indicator is baffling. Since I use a second older Brita pitcher side by side with this one (we go through a lot of water) I use the LCD timer on this old one for changing filters. It's way too late to return to Costco but Brita could do something nice for us loyal customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Design Flaw Like many other reviewers, I bought this at Costco yesterday to replace my old pitcher. Went through the process of washing etc. and filled it and place it on my counter and it immediately had a puddle around it. After looking at it for about 2 minutes, I realized that the water was coming from the handle. I thought, well, I guess you have to have the lid on when you fill it, but water still got in when I did that. I cant believe that if so many people found this design flaw within minutes, the makers of Brita did not pull it off the shelves, but instead continue to sell it! Very disappointed and aggravated that I need to go back to Costco.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design We've used Brita products for many years now. I have no qualms with their filtration methods. However, this product is designed very poorly. When you fill it up the water spills out the back part of the chamber into the handle, leaving a ring on the counter. If you take care to avoid spillage, you can only fill up the chamber halfway, which then takes three times to fill the pitcher! If you are a bit impatient and don't want to wait for the chamber to completely empty and attempt to pour (holding on to the chamber lid), the water still spills out the top into your glass! Easily the worst Brita product I've purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible pitcher design...small resevoir & leaks water. I went out to buy another shape pitcher after having this one for only a few weeks. The resevoir slopes toward the handle and if you fill the top portion more than 1/2 way the water sneaks out the back and gets trapped in the handle. It then leaks out all over the floor, fridge, etc. It took us a few days to figure out where all the water was coming from! The slope and notch out for the lid means the top can only hold about 2 cups at a time. Also, when you pour, the water whooshes up the front an spills out the edges of the pitcher making yet another mess. I can't even return the pitcher because I used the filter that came with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is terrible! I have used Brita for years! I was at Costco and saw this new one (Oceania) and decided that I needed a new one instead of replacing just the filters. I was so excited, it was a new design and very cute. I threw my other one away but soon realized I was in trouble. I can't fill this one up without spilling out the back of it. It's a REALLY POOR design...am REALLY wishing I had my old one back even though it was old and scrached up. Now I'm going to have to go out and get a different one (my husband is not thrilled with me!) So much for less waste...this one is going to have to go in the trash. Brita, you missed the mark...too much design over function instead of the reverse. I want to use it, not just look at it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this particular pitcher with a passion...here's why! This pitcher has a major design flaw. In making the pitcher look sleeker, the back end of the reservoir is lower than the front. When you go to fill up the pitcher reservoir to what you figure to be the "top", because the end is lower near the handle, 2 or 3 inches' worth of water comes flowing over the rim of the reservoir and down through the handle. No matter how you try, you still wind up with puddles. I cannot tell you how many times I have had to clean up after this pitcher, it ruining papers, table tops, etc., leaving flooding everywhere. It is NOT worth the better pricing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Brita is great.....but stay away from the Oceania The pitcher leaks due to a design flaw in the handle. Water goes all over the surface that you leave the pitcher on to allow for water filtration. I am a life long Brita customer and I have purchased many of their products which were great, but this one is a bust. I called customer service and they made good on the issue right away! A new pitcher (The Grand) is on the way to replace the Oceania. Great company...but in the case of this particular pitcher...stay away!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Design Flaws 1. The reservoir has a low point at the handle, so you can only fill the reservoir up a part of the way, which makes refilling tedious. 2. The handle is open at the top. As a result, the spillover from the reservoir fills the handle, which slowly leaks out into my refrigerator over the next 15 minutes. 3. The front of the lid pops open when I fill my cup, causing water to spill all over my counter. Stick with the more conventional designs! Someone didn't think this one through!

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.
