If you’re tired of drinking water from the tap that tastes less than stellar, a water filter is in order. The water pitcher filters below are for those us whom want to cleanse the water we are drinking by removing chlorine, zinc and other distasteful substances in the water. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
Brita Atlantis Water Filter Pitcher
Our first filter is the Brita Atlantis Water Filter Pitcher that can hold up to 6 cups. This budget-conscious water filter pitcher comes with 1 filter and reduces the taste and odor of chlorine, copper, zinc, mercury and cadmium that can sneak its way into your tap water. The pitcher is easy to fill and comfortable to hold with an easy-fill lid and a comfort grip handle. And the best part is, the filter can replace 300 standard 16.9 ounce water bottles and a notification sticker will notify the user of when to replace the filter.
Brita Grand Water Filter Pitcher
Like the Brita Atlantis, the Brita Grand Water Filter Pitcher will hold up to 10 cups of water while still reducing the chlorine, mercury, copper, cadmium, and zinc from your tap water. Are you clumsy? This filter has a sturdy locking lid to prevent spillage and a comfortable grip. When the filter starts acting up, check out the electronic filter indicator to see if the filter needs to be replaced. And it comes in a variety of great colors to boot!
MAVEA 1009492 Marella Kompakt 5-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher
This new generation filtration pitcher hailing from Germany, the MAVEA 1009492 Marella Kompakt 5-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher, is for those who desire a different style of European filter. This BPA-free filter uses a time-based notification device to notify you of when to change the filter, and, like the Brita models, the MAVEA comes with a convenient flip-top lid and has the option of 5 or 8 cup capacities.
PUR 7 Cup Oval Pitcher & 1 Filter
Are you exceptionally worried about mercury in your water? Then the PUR 7 Cup Oval Pitcher is for you. This filter removes up to 95 percent of all mercury from your water and reduces the taste of chlorine and it’s odor. The filter will also cleanse 40 gallons of water to mountain freshness.

MAVEA 1001492 Elemaris Kompact 5-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher
And lastly, we have the MAVEA 1001492 Elemaris Kompact 5-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher. This great pitcher is similar to the MAVEA Marella, but it contains silver in the filtration system to help eliminate any microbials that may be in the water or pitcher. If you’re wanting to have a water filter pitcher to fit on a crowded shelf in your fridge, this model has an array of different sizes and colors to suit individual tastes while utilizing the same great European design.
Can’t remember which filter is which? Let’s go over the models and their main features again. The Brita Atlantis is a solid filter holding up to 6 cups of filtered water free from chlorine, zinc, cadmium, mercury, and copper. The PUR Oval Pitcher is an excellent choice if Mercury is your main concern, but it has many of the same great benefits of the Brita Atlantis. The Brita Grand has the same great features as the Brita Atlantis, but it steps up to the plate with an electronic filter change indicator and locking lid. Now for the European models; the MAVEAS. The MAVEA Marella is the German-made water pitcher filter with a time-based filter change notificator and a Maxtra advanced technology filter. The MAVEA Elemaris has the many of the same features as the Marella, however, the Elemaris comes with a silver component in the filtration system to destroy those nasty microbes from your water and several different sizes to fit anywhere in your fridge.
