Innovative pitcher that is fast and easy to use. Fast filtering process, reliable filtering technology, simplicity of use and moderate pricing makes it a very convenient model. But has a couple of small parts that can be lost if not used carefully.


Brita is one of the world’s most popular brands, widely known, and with a great reputation. But you may occasionally wonder why you would need to use a water filter, or if they are worth the plastic they are made of. In this review, I will go into depth on explaining how the “Brita Lake Model, 10 cup” works for those who need a little bit of clarification, or are curious as to why people would want to use a water filter.

Filters can improve the taste of your drinking water while removing toxic substances and contaminants such as heavy metals like copper or cadmium.

The Brita Lake model, like all Brita products, is made and sold worldwide, in approximately 66 countries, including the United States, Germany, Switzerland, and others. Brita headquarters are located in Taunusstein, Germany. The Brita brand is so popular, you may be familiar with a few of their products.

About Brita Brand

The Lake Model does have a sensor with a light that flashes a bright green. This sensor indicates when it is time to change the filter. To keep your water at its healthiest change the filter every few months. Change the filter, depending on how often the pitcher is filled. The maximum time between changes should be no more than 90 days.

This water filter pitcher does have the convenience of an autofill lid and can hold up to 10 cups which is nice, because that is about a day worth of water, making it easy to stay hydrated. Although 10 cups, which is equivalent to about 2 and a half quarts, is enough for most single people, you may end up needing more if you’re part of a family. In that case you’ll want to fill it a few times a day.

If you are using a water filter to drink the cleanest possible water, you are probably going to want to be able to clean the pitcher each time you filter. The fact that the pitcher comes apart easily makes cleaning between uses a breeze. Because you can take the handle off, and everything is not stuck on, it makes it easier to clean between uses.

Brita Filter Details

If you do go too long between changing the filter, you may notice a few things happen. The water may start to taste a little bit off, or the filter may start to look worn out. A few users noticed that the filter droops if the pitcher is not assembled properly, so make sure you have all parts put together before you use the product to filter your drinking water.

The added convenience of a faster filter compared to older models may throw a few users off, but because of newer technology, you will have access to clean, fresh water in a swifter amount of time. So although this model may be comparable to other Brita models, don’t get concerned if it takes less time to access your freshly filtered water, it is newer technology and a feature that adds to the convenience of this particulate model.

Things To Be Aware Of

Because some of the parts are a little small they may be easily lost. There is a spring, for example, that closes the lid each time the pitcher is being filled, and new water is being filtered. The spring can be easy to lose if you are not careful. A few users have found this problem to be a bit of a hassle. Brita understands this, and because there are parts that are easy to lose, they have made it simple to order replacement parts on their website or by contacting Brita on-line.

According to users, many filters on the market leave black flecks in your drinking water. This may be a problem you are familiar with. Brita filters are engineered to avoid this flaw and have been designed to work in all Brita pitcher models.

Being one of the leading brands of filters in the world, Brita is often trusted to create healthier drinking water, removing most harmful contaminants including heavy metals such as copper and mercury, while retaining the fluoride which may help keep your teeth strong and vibrant.

Brita filters help users create a healthier way to drink their water, activate the ions that water is great for, and process out harmful heavy metals, decreasing taxes that are often found in tap water while improving the cool, crisp, refreshing taste of the water you drink.

For health and safety purposes, make sure you are changing unused water out regularly. This helps to avoid pathogens or letting the water go stagnant. It is best to not let the filtered water sit for more than a few days at a time.

Final Words

In the end you get a solid 10-cup pitcher by a reliable brand with innovative features. It is a model that was designed to be very convenient for users. Fast filtering times, indicator and auto-fill lid, these features make it a very easy to use product. Remember, just like with any other plastic piece of equipment you should be careful with it, even though the plastic used by Brita is durable it can be broken if used sloppy. Combination of features and moderate pricing makes it a great choice forone of the best pitchers on the market.
