5.0 out of 5 stars Get a Fruit Infusion, February 27, 2012
This review is from: Prodyne 3-qt ICED Fruit Infusion Pitcher FI-4 (Kitchen)
I found this locally on sale and couldn't resist buying it.

Why you will love this pitcher:
+ Sturdy BPA-free Acrylic Pitcher
+ Pitcher can be used with or without ice tube and infuser
+ Infuser will hold about 1 large orange chopped or about a cup of fruit
+ Infuser's many slots allow water to freely flow around fruit
+ Ice rod has silicone plug for easy empty/fill, but water does not need to be changed

This is a great buy if you like subtly flavored water. Citrus fruits will exude a stronger flavor than berries. Chop the fruit smaller for more flavor or leave in larger chucks for less. The instructions say to change the fruit every 7-10 days, but after a day the fruit doesn't look that fresh or healthy to me. The fruit in the tube will flavor many pitchers of water - just add fresh water to the pitcher every time you pour a glass out and put it back in the fridge. I start the fruit water at least an hour before I want to use it and by the time I get to it, the water is chilled and fully infused.

The ice rod will keep the pitcher contents cold, but not as cold as the fridge will. Still very nice for parties. It screws into the lid and the pitcher works without it too.

There is no way to close off the spout, so I make an effort not to fill it too full.

For variety: mint leaves, ginger and other herbs can be placed in the tube with the fruit. Mint grows like a weed, so I use the large leaf mint from my garden. I think the little grocery store mint would slip though the infusor slots.

The instructions recommend hand-washing, but it is easy to clean.

This pitcher is a fun, multi-use kitchen item. Also great for tea or juice.
