PUR Ultimate 11 cup pitcher



My husband and daughter are really good about drinking water, but it’s something that I struggle with. Ever since having weight loss surgery, water has to be ice cold for me to do ok with it (weird I know). Recently PUR contacted me asking if I wanted to try out their new Ultimate 11 cup pitcher. I definitely wanted to try it and see if it helped me get more water in each day.




For some reason the new fridge we got doesn’t give us really cold water out of the spout in the front of the door. I’m not sure if that’s just how it is or if I need to change a setting somewhere. So to have a pitcher I can have filled sitting in the fridge staying nice and cold is perfect for me. Not only is it great for me but also when it comes to having guests over for dinner. We can have it sitting on the table so people don’t have to get up and down to get more water!


I’m sure I could just get a regular pitcher of water and keep it in the fridge and it be a lot cheaper than this one, BUT…  PUR has a huge advantage. Their pitcher has a filter that cleans the water you are drinking. I did a simple test and poured a glass from the faucet and one from PUR. I could tell a huge difference. The water from PUR had a sharper more crisp taste to it.  To keep things fair, i did use the same temp water for each.


Having other products with filters, I know it can be hard remembering when to change the filter. There have been times where I have simply forgot and a lot of time has passed. This pitcher has an LED light that will indicate when it’s time to change it. Between filters you will get about 40 gallons worth of clean water before it’s time to get a new one. That’s a ton of water.



The only thing you have to do before using the pitcher for the first time is to soak the filter for 15 minutes. Once that's done, you are ready to go.

The PUR® Ultimate 11-Cup Water Pitcher also offers these great benefits:
  • Keep track of your filter life with a built-in Electronic Filter Life Indicator. The indicator flashes green, yellow or red so you'll always know when it's time for a replacement filter
  • Water Pitcher holds eleven 8 oz glasses of water
  • Comfort-grip handle
  • Easy-fill lid is thumb activated for simplicity
  • Pour spout cover prevents odors and particulates from getting into your clean water
  • Space-saving design fits easily in a refrigerator. Slim enough to fit easily in most refrigerator doors
  • BPA free
  • All PUR pitchers and filters are recyclable
In my opinion, the price for one of these pitchers ($43.99) is well worth the money. You are getting better water out of it, and I bet if you are like me, it will help you drink more which is better for your health as well.

  2. The water tastes awful where I live so I don't really drink much, even though my doctors have all strongly recommended that I do. I'd love to win this pitcher because the water will taste better and have less chemicals in it!

  6. My New Year Resolution is to drink more water. I like it but I like the fresh taste of filtered water best. I would totally put this to work. The LED light will work great for a busy mom, and the feature I liked best was that it left the Fluoride in the water. Out with all the bad stuff, but keeping what we need for a healthy body. Fingers crossed. Love the blog, I visit a lot :-) Thanks!

  12. I would love the fact that I don't have to purchase Bottled Water anymore, and I need to drink more Water and this sounds like the perfect way to do that.

  13. What I like most is that I can use it in the coffee maker or keurig and they don't "clog" up as much as they would if I'd used un filtered water.

  14. I really like that this pitcher has that neat LED light letting me know the filter needs to be changed. I drink lots of water and I like it really cold too. I wish the filters weren't so expensive. I have the PUR filter on my kitchen faucet. Here in Ca. we're in a very bad drought so I use less water. I don't like the water that's from the faucet if it hasn't been filtered. Kinda gross! LOL!
