Get Sleek and Snazzy With Brita

Sunday, May 26, 2013

This past weekend, our family took to the outdoors as we dove into a new season of recreational soccer. Colour me less than thrilled. You see, I'm not the most enthusiastic soccer mom you'll ever meet. The truth is I would much rather avoid having to spend a few hours sitting around on the field either be it in the cold wind or on a relentlessly hot day. But I am starting to believe that my children are developing a passion for the sport much to my dismay their father's content. And so, this big buttercup is going to suck it up and take one for the team. Time to return to our regular routine of loading the Jeep with lawn chairs, packing healthy snacks and filling up bottles with fresh, filtered water.

Last summer, Brita sent us a pair of reusable water bottles with built-in filters. I thought it was such a great idea because both the kids and I could enjoy filtered tap water no matter where we went. On hot days out on the field with no water fountain in sight, however, I opt for a much larger jug to keep thirst at bay. With the new Brita Stainless Steel Pitcher, I can fill up the water jug with tap water that tastes great. The Brita filter is designed to reduce the taste and odour of chlorine as well as the amount of copper, mercury and cadmium that may be in our water. The pitcher is also BPA free and can hold eight glasses of water.

If you like the look of stainless steel, this sleek and shiny pitcher with brushed stainless steel has a fingerprint-resistant coating (unlike my refrigerator) so that makes mommy happy. Its slender shape also makes it easy to squeeze it in between the jug of milk and the carton of orange juice. The electronic filter change indicator is a handy reminder to replace the filter every two months or 151L. What I found to be a bit of a nuisance, however, is the problem that arises when filling the reservoir with too much water. The excess water will spill in the handle part and leak out at the bottom. This is easily rectified by taking care not to fill it with too much water at once. Unless your my husband. In which case you will completely forget to heed said warning.

While the Brita Stainless Steel Pitcher will look great in your modern kitchen or on the dinner table, it will set you back about $50. For a more affordable but equally stylish pitcher, check out Brita's Grand Pattern Series Pitchers. The Turquoise Versailles adds a nice pop of colour to your patio table for any outdoor meal or BBQ and costs $10 than the stainless steel pitcher. Don't you just love the colour?
