Pretty good, considering it's going for $53.95 on Amazon: https://www.amazon.ca/Brita-Stainless-F ... way&sr=8-1

It's a pretty good looking Brita pitcher. If I didn't already have one of the plastic ones from Costco, this would've looked good with my other stainless steel kitchen accessories.

How did this get so many upvotes? Britas are one of the worse $/L filters on the market.

I just got a clear plastic one from Rexall for $18.49 (to get the MegaAirmiles STB for Rexall).

From the pics for this "stainless", it is partly stainless and partly clear plastic. So it still has a lot of plastic -- which allows you to see how much water is in there.

I'm not convinced there is real value spending the extra money, for this part stainless part plastic pitcher.

The quality of water that you get.

I used to use Brita filters.... I now have a 12 cup Zerowater and a 9 cup Mavea pitcher. The Zerowater is far and away the best. It actually filters out ALL of the TDS in the water (granted, some people wont want that). Even after months on a single filter, it will still have 0.00/PPM TDS. Brita filters barely improved over my tap water.

I disagree - just came from ZeroWater to brita longlast (both being the bigger size, around 18 cup i think). Zerowater had constant failures, a weird fishy smell and when they went bad, they go really bad. Brita build quality is also better I found, as is their customer service when I've had issues

For better opinions than any of us here -

Pur as the top - https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best- ... r-pitcher/

Zerowater at the top - https://www.yourbestdigs.com/reviews/be ... r-pitcher/

Both have some failure issues, Zerowater did nothing, Brita mailed replacements the next day for me.

Read amazon reviews as well:
zerowater https://www.amazon.com/ZeroWater-Pitche ... B0073PZ6O0
Brita: https://www.amazon.com/Brita-Longlast-R ... merReviews

Zero water did seem more "pure" as our coffee machine had issues with the water as it didn't want to register 12 cups with the zerowater - the manual stated it would have issues with highly filtered or distilled water. However, the filter life seemed to vary significantly, and when they go it is within a single refill and the water takes on a terrible fishy smell. CS was almost non-existant. Also the "change past 003 PPM" or whatever it is is bogus - the meter works, but even filtered in the GTA I would always read at or above the recommended change level.

Brita longlast filters so far have a much better life span, i prefer the actual case as it has a better lever to release the water (don't need to hold it in) and build quality is better of the plastic. Flavor was the exact same to my family, filters are cheaper as well. And it is rated for more chemicals/lead/etc.

This sounds like it was a problem with their meter

Mine registers 0.00 on my zero water and something like 0.24 on tap and 0.18 or so on my Mavea

Wasn't there some documentary showing how the sensor is rigged? I think the wirecutter recommended against them as well.

I tried it with two different ones (dropped the container once and had to buy a new one) and same story - YMMV and so much can affect that (old building vs new etc., )
