PUR Flavor Options: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis The PUR Flavor Options pitcher will be a great way to reduce the use of water bottles in my home as well as introducing more water into my daughters’ diet.

materials

One PUR Flavor Options Pitcher, a raspberry flavor cartridge and a glass.  About PUR:

purlogo

The PUR Flavor Options Pitcher is like no other water filter pitcher.  Keep clean, filtered water conveniently chilled in your refrigerator.  When you feel like adding tasty flavor to your glass, just push a button.  The more you push, the more flavor is added.  The rest of the pitcher water remains unflavored.”

At every grocery store visit, we always by a case of bottled water.  I carry two bottles of water to work each day which adds up quickly.  Plus, I am a sweet tea girl, so if I am going to drink water, it needs to taste good!  When I was asked to review the PUR Flavor Options pitcher, I thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce more water into our daily lives without the expense of buying cases of water at a time.

The first step to setting up the pitcher was to soak the filter for 15 minutes followed by a 10 second rinse.  All parts were hand washed and a raspberry flavor cartridge was inserted.  I filled the top of the pitcher with tap water and the filter went to work removing 98% of lead and other water contaminants while leaving the fluoride.

After chilling the pitcher, I poured myself a glass of water in order to try out the flavor cartridge.  To operate, simply push the blue button which releases some flavor (sugar and calorie free) into a reservoir.  The flavor is NOT released into the whole pitcher, so you can have one glass of flavored water and one glass of regular water at the same time!  I also love that you can switch out flavor cartridges if your whole family doesn’t agree on one flavor.  The raspberry flavor was excellent!  Lily even asked for more!

summary

The PUR Flavor Options Pitcher was easy to assemble, easy to use and easy to upkeep (a light indicator will let you know when it’s time to change your filter).  The raspberry flavor was great!  I intend to bring this water pitcher with me to work in order to reduce the amount of bottles we purchase at the grocery.

PŪR Flavor Options was recently voted the leader in household product quality and innovation – 2009 Product of the Year USA winner!!
