Brita Review and Giveaway

Filtered water is something I take very seriously. I've always had some kind of water filtration system, whether screwed onto my tap or a in a pitcher.  I don't want to take any chances by drinking unfiltered water and potentially ingesting mercury, chlorine, or anything else unsanitary.  Brita shares my stance on healthy drinking water.

Brita is the leading manufacturer of filtration products designed to give you peace of mind with your drinking water. The products are meant to improve the quality and taste of tap water.  Brita provides pitchers, replacement pitchers, filtering bottles, dispensers and faucet filtrating systems.  They have been a household name in my home for many years now.  When I think of clean drinking water, they are the first company that comes to mind.

Many years ago I had a white Brita filtration pitcher.  It worked well and I loved the way that the water tasted from the pitcher.  I honestly have no idea what happened to it.  Since I've moved many times, I'm assuming it was lost in one of my moves.  I knew that I had to replace the pitcher with a modern day one.  

Brita came to my rescue and offered me a gorgeous stainless steel pitcher to review.  I was very excited that the pitcher came in a stunning and modern finish that really appealed to me.  A stainless steel finish fits in with today's up to date kitchen and certainly looks beautiful on your kitchen table.

The Brita was shipped extremely quickly.  In no time I was face to face with this beautiful work of art. The brushed stainless steel is fingerprint resistant which is my favorite part. Everybody knows how stainless steel shows fingerprints easily. I've touched it quite a number of times and no fingerprints show up at all.  I am amazed! The black modern handle pairs marvelously with the rest of the pitcher.   Since it's an 8 cup pitcher it holds a lot of water, which is great for putting on your table for meal times with your family.  You also don't have to refill the pitcher each time since the water capacity is large. The instructions that came with the pitcher were very easy to follow.  Soon after the pitcher was ready to go and I was able to drink from it. 


I poured water into the top which has an easy locking lid that is very convenient. I let the pitcher chill out in my fridge for a while and get nice and cold.  The pitcher fit excellently in the built in shelf inside the fridge too. A few hours later it was time for a taste test.  I poured my first glass of water and prepared to be taken away into a world of Brita where everything is healthy, happy, and clean.  What I first noticed about the water was how crisp it was.  It had a very clean and clear taste to it.  I tasted nothing metallic-y or odd.  The cool water was very refreshing and I truly give all of the credit to Brita for making the water taste excellent. 

There is an electronic filter change indicator on the top of the Brita.  What's great about this is that it alerts you as to when you need to change your filter, which is usually every two months or 40 gallons.  I will definitely be serving my guests delicious Brita filtered water and keeping it on my dining room table at meal times for some time to come.  I feel much safer knowing I'm drinking safe water that could not potentially harm me.  If you're looking to change your water for the better and give it the boost it needs, please turn to Brita.
