    Slim is rated 4.514 out of 5 by 430.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great if you're looking for good water on the cheap. I'm a student who lives in an area with very bad tasting tap water. I'm also a heavy drinker who needs regular fluids but I often go without if I'm not satisfied with what is available. I found this little pitcher on sale at a local store so I picked it up and I have to tell you I'm glad I did. The water tastes excellent and it takes very little space in a fridge shared with 5 other college students. Also, the filter lasts much longer than advertised. The reason I docked a star was only because it's made of fairly low quality plastic and if someone just thought a bit harder they could have come up with a better design that would have fit more water without taking up any more fridge space.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Brita observation In my chemistry class, we were filtering our tap water. We tested our water for each parameter (chlorine, water hardness, lead, pH, copper, nitrates) and found chlorine and water hardness in our water. Then we did research on what filter we should use to remove chlorine and water hardness and found that the Brita filter would be best. The Brita filter cleaned water hardness and chlorine. Our water hardness went from 200 ppm to 120 ppm and chlorine from 1 ppm to 0 ppm. The other parameters were not present so they could not be decreased. I would recommend the Brita filter to those whose water has chlorine and/or water hardness.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate this pitcher I have been a Brita user for more than 20 years and this pitcher design does not work. The filter keeps floating up and dislodging so that the unfiltered water in the top leaks into the filtered reservoir. I have tried putting less water in to filter, I have tried being patient in letting the water filter through but over 70% of the time when I open the top of the pitcher the filter is not seated in the pitcher like it should be and if I don't check it every time, the unfiltered water just runs through into the bottom of the pitcher

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent Filter Birta is a great filter if you want to make your water safer. I tested my water for the following parameters iron, pH, bacteria, lead, nitrates, copper, chlorine and water hardness before using Brita and after using Brita. Then from using the Brita the following parameter went down: nitrates 3 ppm- 2 ppm, water hardness 250 ppm- 50 ppm, pH 7-6.5, chlorine 1ppm-0 ppm and lead went from possibly present to none. The filter results were better than I expected. By using Brita it lowered every parameter weather it was a health risk or just making our water unpleasant. If you want clean and safe water I recommend you use Brita.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small for my needs, probably great for others. This was shown to me as the replacement or new version of my old Brita pitcher (I think it was called a FridgeMate or something like that; it was meant to be slim enough to fit in the fridge door and I bought it c. 1998), but this one is WAY smaller. Which is actually really hard to tell just by looking and I no longer remember (nor did I measure) the capacity of my old one. I tend to fill a bunch of water bottles with filtered water and keep those in my fridge, car, on my desk, etc. It takes 3.5 fills of this pitcher to fill 6 of my water bottles. With the slowness of this type of water filter, that takes forever. Too small for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I take this everywhere it's great to show up outdoors, in the van...with this...I can have filtered water any place I go! and people ask me questions...why are you carrying that? what is it? so I get a chance, as an environmentalist, to explain the damage plastic bottles do to the environment....that having your own cup and filter keeps hard-to-degrade bottles out of the trash, trash trucks, and landfills. and...less water drained out of my springs and aquifers surrounding me, which lowers the water level, causing algae blooms and me not being able to swim or kayak on our spring-fed rivers... a win win win

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Compact Filtration System The Brita Slim Pitcher is a great way to keep fresh filtered water in your fridge without taking up much space. In a home of a family of five, the beverage selection in our fridge is very crowded because of all the different tastes we all have... but the slim fits right in there with no problem..... water has clean and crisp taste.... great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy customer I much prefer the Brita pitcher to bottled water. Takes up less room, and less harmful to the environment.
