Ensure that your family's drinking water is fresh, great-tasting and free from chemicals and other contaminants by filtering it with the superior MAVEA filtration pitcher. Simply fill the reservoir with cool tap water, and MAVEA's MAXTRA(R) filter technology removes chlorine, benzene and other pollutants for water that's ideal for drinking, cooking and brewing coffee or tea. Certified by the Water Quality Association to reduce chlorine taste and odor, agricultural chemicals, heavy metals and industrial pollutants. Unique MAXTRA(R) Advanced filter technology ensures an optimal mix of activated charcoal and ion exchange resin beads to improve taste and reduce contaminants. MAVEA METER measures the volume of filtered water, water quality (hardness) and time, and indicates when the filter needs changing. Easy-to-install filters are ready to use - no presoaking required. Convenient pour-through lid allows direct filling of the basin. Unique flow control ensures optimal filtration over the life of the filter. Well-designed pitcher saves space on the countertop or in the refrigerator. Prolongs cooking-appliance life span by reducing limescale buildup. All plastic components are BPA-free. Does not remove fluoride. Replacement filters sold separately. Includes pitcher, reservoir, lid and 1 filter. Available in compact (40 oz.) and large (72 oz.). Dishwasher safe. Made in Germany.
