Review & Giveaway: Mavea Water Filtration Pitcher

MAVEA water filter cartridge reduces:

  • Chlorine taste and odor and limescale for a great taste of hot and cold drinks,
  • Contaminants such as:
  • heavy metals (like cadmium, copper, mercury),
  • organic impurities (such as benzene, MTBE and tetrchloroethylene)
  • pesticides (e.g atrazine or simazine) for your well being.

I have been using this amazing Mavea Elemaris Water Pitcher for about 3-4 weeks now, and I have to tell you- it is amazing. I’ve used a Brita water pitcher before and it is NOTHING compared to this one.

This is very easy to use. When you get it in the mail, it isn’t put together. You apply the filter part and stick the top on the pitcher, which takes about a minute- and is easy as pie.

Then you run 2 cycles through the filter to get it working and keep it flowing. It’s easy to use. You stick it under your water faucet. Let the top part of it fill up and then you’ll see it start slowly dripping into the bottom part- and then it will quicken up after you’ve ran the first two necessary cycles.


This one has an easy pour soft-grip handle that makes it easy to hold and pour. Because the handle is so thick, I don’t have to worry about it slipping through my fingers, crashing to the floor, and breaking.

Even when it’s completely full, I don’t have any issues with sliding it into the refrigerator. Like I’ve said before: “I HATE the taste of tap water”. BUT I also dislike using spring water bottles. SO- with a Mavea water pitcher and a reusable water bottle, all the unnecessary plastic is eliminated.

I love how classy and beautiful this is designed to be. It isn’t cheap plastic, you can tell that it is made from a high quality plastic. The plastic is BPA free, so you don’t have to worry about that!

This eliminates all the nasty chemicals tastes that come from drinking tap water. Whether your water has a chlorine taste or you can taste the metal from the pipes, this eliminates it all. Filtering that nasty tasting water into great fresh tasting water.

This has a bobble top flow system. When you put this under your faucet and fill it up, the top automatically starts to close when it fills up. This is also dishwasher safe. You can remove the digital reader (that tells you when your filter needs to be replaced) and stick the rest in the dishwasher. Of course, you can do the same with hand washing if you do not have a dishwasher.

The pitcher is made perfectly for storing in the side compartment of your refrigerator. Now that I don’t have to put tons of water bottles in the side, I am saving on space and money thanks to this amazing little gadget.

Now instead of cooking with tap water, we also use this in cooking food. Not only does the food taste better but it is also healthier. We have also started watering our dog with the filtered water.. HEY he doesn’t have to drink tap water either…lol.
