Review & Giveaway - Mavea Elemaris XL Water Pitcher

Photobucket

I haven't poured myself a glass of tap water to drink in years.  The main reason is that I don't want to drink a lot of chemicals and honestly, I don't trust water from the tap.  Have you ever poured yourself a glass and looked at it in the light?  There are all sorts of floaties in the water and don't even get me started on the taste.  Yuck!

I was buying bottled water and/or jugs of water from the grocery store.  I'm am so happy to say that now I have my Mavea Elemaris XL Water Pitcher.  It's so easy to use and the water tastes amazing!  The directions say that the filter needs to filter two fill ups before you actually drink the water.  I recommend doing it four times, just to be sure that the filter is working properly.

What makes this pitcher different from others is that the Mavea Meter with 3-way measurement.  You don't have to wonder if it's time to change your filter, you can just look at the top of the pitcher and it will tell you when to make the change.

The useful lid has an automatic pour slot so that you don't have to remove the top every time you would like to refill the pitcher.  The pour slot closes on it's own when it has received enough water.  No need to worry about under or over-filling.  It's brilliant!

The handle is soft and extremely comfortable.  It makes it easy to hold, so you don't have to worry about it slipping out of your hand.  I am in love with the design as well as the water flavor.  We have been using our water pitcher for over a week now and couldn't be happier.

  6. I read that drinking a glass of water before a meal can reduce the actual amount of food consumed, but I had already heard that. The thing I really like about this pitcher is its shape--the oval would fit better in the fridge.

  48. I learned that MAVEA was founded in 2007 and Production facility is in Germany and they distribute to US and Canada. They are family owned and operated. That MAVEA products can help prolong the life of appliances from stopping the build up of lime deposits and If you drink water before a meal it will help you eat less and stick to your diet.
    I just paid $5,000 to have a new well drilled last year and every time we turn water on the whole house smells like rotten eggs. The water is so bad we don't like bathing in it let a lone drink it. I have to buy all my water because the company we called about a filtration system wants another $3,000 which is just not thinkable for us. I am so disappointed to have saved for six years to pay for a well and now can't even drink the water. I would love to win this system to see if it would make our water drinkable. Thanks for sharing this important review and giveaway with all of us!
