The Brita Fjord XL/Cool has been a life saver for us as we live in a remote community with fresh, clean water not always being available on tap. With the Brita Fjord XL/Cool we simply boil the tap water first then allow it to cool and filter it through the jug. The resulting water tastes as good as any bottled water we have tried and works out to be far more economical.
Filters quickly so you can have clean, fresh water in a hurry. Handy date reminder on lid means you never forget when to change your filter.
Nothing to dislike about this product. It's a winner!!
This device is sold on the same principle as printers - the new unit is cheap and the consumables are ridiculously expensive. It takes ages to filter a full tank, but like another reviewer, I pour the filtered water into another container then refill. There are no proper seals between the unfiltered area and the filtered area. When pouring, it is easy to pour any unfiltered water out with the filtered water. Similarily, when filling the top container, it is easy to accidently get tap water into the filtered area. Not a particularly good design,...or at least built down to a price. I use the filters for AT LEAST twice as long as the timer advises. In the end though, the filtered water does seem to taste a little better than tap water. Water seems to taste better than tap water Very expensive filters. Very slow to filter. No seals so unfiltered water can (and does) get into the filtered area.
