Not BPA-free, and the filters need regular replacing.
Pitcher Size: This is the largest capacity water filter pitcher on our list, able to hold up to 18 cups or 1.16 gallons of water. Despite its large capacity, it's designed to be slim and short enough to fit not only on your fridge shelves, but also in most fridge doors. The design makes it easy to refill the pitcher, as well as keeps it balanced while you're pouring water.
Filtration: The manufacturer doesn't list the ingredients used for its polypropylene filtration system, but it does claim to reduce twice as many contaminants as the Brita filter and up to 96% of pharmaceuticals. It's good for up to 40 gallons of water (just under 40 uses, given its 1+ gallon size), and the filter life gauge will let you know when it's time to change out the filter.
Other Features: The handle makes it easy to pour water with the pitcher, and the lid is easily removable for refilling and cleaning. However, be warned: the pitcher is not BPA-free, though it's made from an acrylic polymer with a lid made from polystyrene.
Price: Starting at $36, this Pur water filter pitcher is a very good option for large-family homes. It will filter a lot of water at once and will ensure you always have clean drinking water handy!
