I had an old Brita and wanted to update it. I don't know how old my unit was and felt I should get a BPA free unit. This newer model looks nicer than the old boxy white unit.
There were some negative reviews that I want to address so as to not scare off other purchasers.
The filter does not fit? The filter needs to be oriented a specific way or the water will flow in without filtering. My filter fit perfectly. You also need to run cold water through the filter (according to the instructions) before you put it into use.
You need to wash the pitcher before using it. I could not get the fill insert out of the clear plastic base until I ran some soapy water through all of it and the insert slipped out nicely.
The water does not empty out from the fill area to the bottom container? Not in my case. Took about 30 seconds. What I did notice was, the fill area only holds enough water to fill half the bottom container. So, I filled the top a second time and all the water filled the bottom perfectly.
In summary, this pitcher looks nice enough for the table and is smaller in the refrigerator.
The real issue is, I just poured a little water to make tea with, looked in my cup, and noticed black flecks in there. Like little specs of dirt. I thought (since it was primarily at the bottom) that it might be coming from my cup (even though I'd just rinsed and wiped it, before pouring the water in). So I poured the same water through the filter again, and wiped the leftover specs from my cup, while it filtered. When I poured it again, I saw the black specs again!... Even after filtering it a 3rd time, I still saw specs. Less than the first time, but still unnerving.
I decided to compare, and see if it's stuff from the unfiltered water, getting through. So I poured a cup of straight tap, and THAT was actually CLEAR. I don't know if during the filtration process, the metals clump together, and THAT'S what I see as specs. But either way, I think it's reasonable to expect whatever it is, to not get through, and for your water to be clear, especially after multiple filtrations. And ESPECIALLY after only a week of using the filter.
Also, this is a real deal Brita. It arrived in a Brita shipping box and was packaged accordingly. See photos.
Among the features that play out for us, the locking lid can be tricky. It pays off in reducing spills, esp when we have water in the reservoir while we add water to the coffee maker. . I know that it is filtering at least some of the suspended solids because when we finally changed the filter is had more than doubled in weight and we could see some of the particulate backed up in the filter.
This brings us to the feature I do not trust, or have found trust worthy: The indicator light. Exactly how it senses the status of the filters is unknown. I suspect and have some reason to that it is a simple counter that counts down based on, perhaps the number of times you press the on button. Otherwise I suspect it is designed to promote sales of replacement filters more than designed to track the condition of the filter. When we notice that it was taking more time to filter water and look to see the status of the filter is when we change the filter. Our way takes no electronics and gave us the result we wanted. I have never seen the indicator light be anything but green.
Disassembly is very hard. If you are picky about having the ability to clean in detail, our experience has not been positive. We can clean it sufficient for our sensitivities.
Overall we like our Brita Large 10 Cup Water Filter Pitcher. If that is all there was to say; it functions mostly as promised and is deserving of four stars. However I am suspicious of the electronics; do not believe they are needed and cannot witness to its reliability.
