Mavea Water Pitcher Review! 8-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher

I recently received a brand new Mavea Water Pitcher to review. It was the Marella XL 8-Cup Water Filtration Pitcher. It came in my favorite color, Purple! This is it when it first arrived straight out the box.

The Mavea Water Filter Pitcher is an attractive, easy to use, quick processing water filter that removes odors and many common contaminants. The automatic pour through lid of the Mavea Marella XL opens and closes automatically.  Marella systems offer a flip-top lid for ease of use. Marella systems have the MAVEA MEMO Meter on the lid, a time-based meter that alerts users to change the filter based on time. The Marella is BPA Free. The material used is SAN and has been material tested and certified safe. Filters will last for approximately 2 months, or through 40 gallons of water, before needing to be replaced.

Once my husband and I got started, we found that this pitcher was very easy to assemble.  There are four parts in total: the body/reservoir, flip-top lid, meter and filter.  The directions say to submerge the filter in water and shake it a little to remove all air bubbles. Well, when I submerged it all air bubbles came out! LOL The filter does not need to soak for any length of time.  Then snap the filter in place {not too tight there is a hole at the bottom that the water seeps through}, snap on the lid and fill the pitcher.  Run two (2) fillings of water through the reservoir to activate the filter and remove any filter dust.  After that it’s ready to use!

The water filters through pretty fast.  In a few minutes we had fresh filtered water ready to drink.   The first thing we noticed was that the water from the Mavea Water Pitcher was crystal clear.  We don’t like warm tap water, so we opted to wait for it to get cold. 🙂  My husband took pictures of how the pitcher can fit different ways on the shelf in the fridge.

How did the water taste after it was cold?  Well, it didn’t taste like it was tap water.  I can’t stand tap water! LOL  Mavea truly stands behind it’s promise to filter out the taste and odor of chlorine, which is fantastic.
