Some others have mentioned black granules, but we've only seen them in the top of the pitcher (the filter area, not the area that filtered-water goes that you drink). It's our non-scientific understanding that those are part of the carbon-filtering system in the Brita filters. In the 3 years of use, I don't think we've ever seen them in our filtered drinking water - if we have, it was maybe once.
The only other con for the pitcher is you may have to wait a while to fill it. The top part that holds water that is passing through the Brita filter is smaller than the part that holds filtered water, so it takes about two to three fills of the top part to fill the filtered part. The filtering is also a little slow, but not a problem.
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.
Make sure to follow the instructions for installing the filter perfectly because it is very important. They ask you to soak it in cold water for 15 minutes; I put it in a plastic cup from a fast food place with cold water for 15 minutes and it ate through the coating the cups have and the water turned grey and had some of those black carbon particles in the cup, which is perfectly fine that's exactly why you soak it for 15 minutes. I then put it into my cleaned Pitcher, making sure the filter lined up with the groove to hold it in place properly. It goes in easy, if it's going in hard make sure you are putting it in the right way. I believe the only reason people have complained about the particles in their water is they did something wrong. Make sure the filter is in as much as it goes so that it is sealed properly. I see the particles in the top of the pitcher where you add more water to be filtered. But that's not a problem it's Supposed to do that. It will NOT get into your drinking water once it's filtered. If you see them in your drinking water check if you did something wrong
I was amazed how crystal clear the water was after everything was setup, especially since the water used to soak the filter was so grey colored. I have found zero black carbon particles in the water since i've filled it up (i've filled it about 4-5 times now). The lid for the filter makes a tight seal when put on properly, I was very happy to find after filling it once i could fill the filter again so when i use up the filtered water it filters more of the unfiltered water (wow sorry if that's a bit confusing)
Anyways for only $12 i highly recommend this product. I'm gna get a few more for Christmas Presents this year.
The other option I shortlisted was PUR PUR CR-4000 5 Cup Pitcher with One Pitcher Filter. PUR uses activated carbon which works on the principle of adsorption.** Brita uses ion-exchange resins in addition to activated carbons (but for some reason costs less?). By the way, water from both taste good.
Now to nit-pick, I wish the lid could be closed completely. Also the lid falls off sometime when I pour water.
Well, the shocking park of my experience was when I boiled the municipal water in a pressure cooker. I observed highly visible precipitated white sediments left over after the boiling. (Please check the image I uploaded) Then I boiled the filtered water from this pitcher and there was not a trace of precipitate this time. I assume the water contained the divalent hard water salts (Ca2+/Mg2+??) in high amounts.
**EDIT: Apparently, PUR has later changed the product to include ion-exchange filtration method. New description is on their product page.
