4.0 out of 5 stars Great for a small fridge, November 1, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brita Slim Water Filter Pitcher, 5 Cup (Kitchen)
This is my second Brita Slim Pitcher - the first served me well for a long time, until I dropped it on a brick patio. It's great for a small fridge like mine. I hate the waste of bottled water and use my Brita to fill a Nalgene bottle instead. One of my favorite features is the the dial that tells me when to replace the filter (because I can never remember when I put the last one in...)

I've owned Pur and GE water pitchers, but always go back to Brita.

One last comment - if you soak a new filter for 15 minutes in a glass of water before using it for the first time as per the directions you won't see ANY "black granules" (charcoal) in your water.

They are terrific and she's right, soak the filters before using and there won't be any charcoal particles. Oh you may see one now and then but they are in the filter basket not in the filtered water.

Thank you so much for your hint which addresses a negative factor identified by other reviewers.

Thanks for the great review and tip about soaking the filter. My pitcher is coming on Monday. I can't wait to try it out.
