Best Filtered Pitchers & Dispensers 2017

Best Filtered Water Pitcher & Counter Top Dispensers 2017

As previously highlighted I am not a huge fan of your ordinary fridge door water filter pitcher. They dont hold a lot of water and the way my family consume water I am often having to refill and wait for the water to chill. Therefore my preference is for water filter dispensers over the water filter pitcher. They hold more water and still have the added benefit of not taking up too much room in the fridge.

They are great for family homes or if you own your own business, they are great to have in the office for your employees!

Our Top Pick!

It is without a doubt that the Big Berkey is the most superior product here within this category. It is a high end stainless steel finish, with superior build quality which is equally matched by its lifetime warranty and support. In addition to this you receive 4 water bottles, which is great to take with you too work, school or the gym. My only downside to this is the price. If you don’t mind the price, then this is a great dispenser to have, and if you have a modern minimalistic decor in your home, this would fit right in.

As highlighted many times across this site, I hate pitchers and I do not recommend them, especially Brita Pitchers, (brita dispensers fine). However the Pur Pitcher is great! It is large, long lasting filter and is not pricey. It fits into even small fridge doors and supplies 18-20 good size glasses of water! So if you have a small fridge, this is honestly your best option on the market!

My preference has always been for dispensers, especially if you have a good old American large double door fridge! The Pur Dispenser I recommend has longer lasting filters (than pitchers), they are convenient and hold more water. It’s great for a family of 4.
