PUR 11 Cup Filtering Pitcher Review

Posted on Apr 23 2014 - 2:07am by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


When my husband and I started our weight loss journey the hardest thing for both of us was forcing ourselves to drink more water. While it may not sound like a huge deal, it is when you realize our local water tastes terrible. We have lived in many places where the water was fantastic, but in Florence  we enjoy some of the worst tasting water. The only place that has worse water is our hometown. For this reason, we have invested in quite a few water filtering systems, finding out that many of them were a waste of money or didn’t last anywhere near the amount of time we hoped. Since we wanted another pitcher for our office, I was starting the long search to find another filtering system. During my search I was approached by PUR, who asked us to review their brand new 11 Cup Pitcher.

    I’ve been trying to loose weight, and also the hardest part for me is actually drinking as much as I’m supposed to. My old place had decent water, but my new place I can’t even stand the SMELL of my water, let alone the taste! So, I’ve been having to buy jugs of water until I could get something for water filtration. I DO have a sports bottle with a filter in it, but my kids drink all my water one me. ha

    Love it! I have been wanting to try a water filter pitcher because we buy a lot of bottled water and Pur seemed to have the best reviews out of the ones I read on amazon.

    I think it would be very handy to have. I especially like the fact that it’s large.

    I have this pitcher and I love it. The water tastes clean, I do need to replace the filter in it though.

    I have used Pur in the past and loved them. This looks a little more modern.

    i love that it holds 11 cups so i don’t have to refill it as often. i also like it’s filter life indicator so i know when to change the filter.

  9. Melissa Douglass April 23, 2014 at 8:12 pm - Reply

    I need this!! I spend SO much money on bottled water because I don’t like the metal taste of tap water so this would be amazing! Thanks so much for the chance!

    Drinking water in a city can fill your system with toxins and it tastes terrible. With this water filter the water will taste great and you don’t have to worry about what you are drinking. My kids would actually drink water with this.

    I have need of this water pitcher with a filter. The reason for this is , we plan to move something this year and we’re unsure of the water quality at our new location.

    I like that the pitcher is designed to be easy for everyone. It is a convenient size for the refrigerator and having a carbon leaves a footprint less than a gallon of milk! It also has one of the easy refill compartment that allows you to change the filter easily.

    I think this filtering pitcher is a great product, and blue is a nice color. The pitcher looks well made and sturdy and PUR is a well known brand water filters.

    I drink alot of water but not from the tap,all bottled.
    I would love to have this filtering pitcher so I could save money,
    and make my own ice cubes.

    I have been wanting one of these filtered pitchers for a while now and have never gotten one due to lack of fiances. I would love to win this! I am trying to drink more water and exercise more and this would be wonderful if I won. Regular tap water is just gross and I could really use this pitcher! Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. Tami Lewis April 25, 2014 at 12:00 pm - Reply

    I think having a filter is a great idea! With all the chemicals in our water we need to protect our kids!!

  19. Robin Abrams April 25, 2014 at 2:08 pm - Reply

    We have nasty well water and could really use a good filter like this. I like that it has a big pitcher so we can keep in the fridge and have cold good tasting water anytime.

  20. Sally T. April 25, 2014 at 7:50 pm - Reply

    I would definitely use this pitcher for my water for making
    my coffee and making my ice and for making lemonade,oj.and just
    my everyday use.

    I absolutely love Pur water filters! After buying a 24 pack of water every 3 days or so (my family drinks A LOT of water) and spending way too much money, we finally decided we had to change something. I also couldn’t stand thinking about how ungreen it was of us. We currently have the small, 5 cup one. While it does produce amazing, crisp and clean tasting water, it’s not quite big enough. I prefer my water ice cold and we go through this 5-cup bad boy super quick! It would be really nice to have a bigger one.

    I have the same exact pitcher & love it. It works well & if I had to purchase another one, it would be the same one!

  23. Barbara Montag April 26, 2014 at 7:22 pm - Reply

    I like that this pitcher holds 11 cups!
    Also the size looks like it would fit better than most.
    thank you

    We have had a PUR filter & dispenser (a larger one than the pitcher), but it is somewhat cracked. It would be nice to win a nice NEW pitcher! Thanks-

    I have really gotten bad about drinking enough water since my city changed to from chlorine to chloromines–yuck. I would love to have better tasting water around the house, this pitcher would be great.

    I like the fact that is a large pitcher.I sure hope to win as
    I could really use this pitcher.
    I do not drink tap water,or make anything like coffee with
    tap water.

    We have the PUR faucet filter and we absolutely love it. I think my family would really enjoy the pitcher because the water will be in the fridge so it will be cold.

  28. Shelton Rogerson April 27, 2014 at 8:54 pm - Reply

    I like the 11 cup capacity of this pitcher. I drink lots of water and would really enjoy the water to taste even better.

    I have well water and everyone thinks that makes the water very clean and great tasting well that isn’t true. Our water is heavy with iron I love that this filter makes the water taste great. I would love to just fill a pitcher of water rather than always buying bottled water

  30. katy b April 28, 2014 at 9:37 am - Reply

    We have well water in our house and this would be perfect for filtering the water. We use water softeners and this would help take out some of the salt added to the water.

  31. Lauren Olivia Wood April 28, 2014 at 6:59 pm - Reply

    I think this filter would be great for my kitchen!

    looks like a nice one. can’t trust tap water anymore.

  33. Pam Gurganus April 28, 2014 at 9:45 pm - Reply

    I really like that this pitcher has an easy refill compartment! I’ve had a different water filter pitcher in the past and it was a pain to refill! I also really like that you can change the filter without taking the whole thing apart! That’s awesome! Thanks for the review! I’ve been in the market for a new one!

    This is so nice. I love the idea of fresh water.

  35. Jen S. April 29, 2014 at 8:35 am - Reply

    This would be perfect for work. I appreciate filtered water but it’s a necessary at work. The water there is horrible and we’re not afforded the luxury of a water cooler. This would seriously make my life so much better 🙂

    For some reason it’s been hard for us to find a good filter system for our family. This pitcher seems nice and we may just have to try it.

  37. Carolyn Daley April 29, 2014 at 8:41 pm - Reply

    I like that this filter pitcher removes 95% of Mercury and reduces chlorine from water. I drink a lot of water and this product would be convenient to filter safe drinking water.

  38. Laurie Emerson April 29, 2014 at 9:00 pm - Reply

    I love this filter. It is perfect for having a perfect pitcher of clean water any time I want it.

    of these.

    I don’t drink enough water per my doctor. If I were able to have some nice fresh, clean water readily available all of the time I would probably drink more. This appears to be the perfect solution.

    This sounds like a great water purifier. Our water is nasty because it is cistern .I would love this.

    I think this pitcher would be great for my husband. It would also help save money instead of buying bottled water.

    love the need to not to have to replace the filter.

    I’m really picky about the water I drink. We buy a lot of bottled water but this would save $$$$$ and not using all those plastic bottles.

    I think this water filtering pitcher looks very useful. I’ll definitely check it out!

  48. Vikki Billings April 30, 2014 at 6:15 pm - Reply

    I love that it has an 11 cup capacity and most of all that it filters the water. Our water tastes like dirt.

    I think that the PUR Filtering Pitcher would be great to have. I used to have a PUR attached to my sink but then we got an under the sink filter installed. I’ve been buying jugs of water because I don’t like the taste now.

    the water here is really low quality, so this would be useful

    I think it looks awesome and I would like healthier water. Last week a pipe burst on the street and our water was shut off for a day until they fixed it. Now it looks cloudy and I am scared to drink it.

    I would love this for my family would save this for savings on bottle water

    With a the great things this has to offer everyone should have one:

    Reduces Chlorine (taste & odor) and more
    Easy fill lid w/ thumb-activated manual lid opening
    1 Filter provides up to 40 gallons (two months) of crystal clean water
