What customers say about "Key Specs"
Mavea Elemaris 1005722 XL 9-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher
  • Very solid design, I have no fear of it physically breaking. Good for about two people.
  • Overall good product. It has a very nice build, makes a lot of other water filter pitchers look and feel cheap in comparison.
  • Each fill (up until the floating cap closes itself) gives you exactly one full normal water kettle, or about 1.7 liters.
  • I fill it one to two times a day and only fill it the single time, use that water, then refill. I see people are putting in more water, which would be nice.
  • Usually needs to be filled after pouring a glass of water (can get 2 1/2 glasses out of a full container).
  • If you fill the upper reservoir slightly higher than the handle, there’s a good chance of brief slight leakage during filtration. I’ve learned to not overfill, but rather wait and do a second filling.
  • XL size is barely big enough for two adults.
Brita Grand OB36 10 Cup Water Filter Pitcher
  • I like a lot of things about the pitcher. It's much larger capacity than the Slim, but still fit easily on the refrigerator door. It was well balanced.
  • I love this pitcher! It is elegant and extremely easy to handle. It pours perfectly and I'm very impressed with the capacity of water it can hold.
  • I have two of these and use them daily. They are easy to use and have excellent capacity.
  • Great large capacity water filter. I have not experienced any of the problems other reviewers have stated such as the lid not fitting or falling off.
  • Has a nice capacity of 10 cups (8oz each). This is just shy of a gallon which is 16 cups.

What customers say about "Filtration"
Mavea Elemaris 1005722 XL 9-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher
  • Noticeable difference between tap water (which isn't even that bad where I live in comparison to neighboring cities).
  • The best tasting water of any pitcher, hands down. I ENJOY drinking water filtered through my Mavea!
  • I found this one and was intrigued. I decided to give it a try and am so glad I did. My ice cubes are clearer than with the Brita water. The taste is phenomenal!
  • It filters fast, the water taste is nil and has no odor. My water starts out with both a taste and smell.
  • My biggest complaint is that it doesn't do anything for lead. Lead is probably the main thing you need to worry about being in your water in terms of health.
Brita Grand OB36 10 Cup Water Filter Pitcher
  • The filters can be purchased for a reasonable to cheap price if you are buying several. Some others have filters which cost much more.
  • I bought this about 7 months ago now and still have it. I can say the filtration system works great, however the design is a little faulty.
  • We have a Multi-Pure system and then run our water for coffee and cooking through a second filtration using the Brita pitchers. The Multi-Pure system has been rated to remove 93-95% of the Chloramines.
  • The best water filtration system i have even owned. Will definitely invest in this again.
  • The filtration process is very slow. It was so slow I questioned if the process stopped.

What customers say about "Features"
Mavea Elemaris 1005722 XL 9-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher
  • Rubber grip on the bottom so it does not slide.
  • The slim size of this pitcher fits perfectly on my small refrigerator’s door shelf.
  • Recycling the filters is quite easy. The "Smart Meter filter change indicator" is a bit hard to read and I'm not sure how accurate, but for this model it does do more than just have a timer.
  • The indicator indicates when it's working and shows the exact date to change the filter. which make me very confident about the water quality.
  • The built-in meter ceased to function after 6 months. While I would like a reliable automatic reminder to know when to change filters, I just make note of when I installed the filter.
Brita Grand OB36 10 Cup Water Filter Pitcher
  • The filter status indicators are very helpful. Much better than hauling a lot of bottled water.
  • This is working as expected. I am able to pour a full to empty picture getting all the water out without any problems such as splashing, lid popping off, filter coming loose, etc. I saw some reviews with these being issues and wondered if I would end up seeing the same.
  • As for the cover not being sealed, I see it as a feature since it's easier to remove the cover to fill than try to position the flip-up lid under the faucet.
  • When full, the pitcher isn't that easy to hold as it gets heavy from the water and the handle design isn't very ergonomic.
  • I love this pitcher! It is elegant and extremely easy to handle.
