Only reduces 5 contaminants. Very short filter life only lasts 40 gallons. Frequent filter changes drive up ongoing cost. Very slow drip filtration compared to countertop or under counter systems.


This Brita Grand pitcher reduces 98 percent of lead, benzene, mercury, copper, chlorine (taste and odor) from tap water. With a 10-cup (80-ounce) capacity, the Brita Grand works well for busy families, sports teams, and offices.

To get started, just pop the filter cylinder (one included) into the plastic water reservoir, fill with cold tap water, wait for the water to filter to the lower chamber, and enjoy healthy water. The filter replacement indicator relays when it's time to replace the filter. For added convenience, the unit's sleek, clear plastic pitcher sports a soft-grip handle for comfort and a flip-top lid for easy filling. The pitcher measures 10-4/5 inches tall by 3-1/2 inches wide by 6 inches deep, so it conveniently fits in most refrigerator doors. The pitcher should be washed by hand and carries a 10-year limited warranty.
