MAVEA Water Pitcher Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)



First of all...let me start out by saying I LOVE WATER! I don't drink soda, so water is always my drink of choice. I probably drink 100 ounces a day...plus I have a glass of water on my night stand at night. I know. I am crazy. But there is nothing better then a cold glass of purified water! 
We were sent the MAVEA Elemaris water pitcher about a month and a half ago and have just loved it. I love the sleek look of the MAVEA water pitcher. It is BPA-free and filters out all the harsh chemicals that are found in our tap water. Our water has tasted so great since we have used the MAVEA Elemaris. There are a few things that makes me love this...

I love the soft grip handle. It is perfect for even my little guy to grab the pitcher out of the fridge and pour him a glass of water without dropping the pitcher. 


I also love the automatic pour through lid. It is seriously awesome that I don't have to take the lid off to fill the pitcher up every time. It is perfect!

The best part is that you don't have to question if your water pitcher filter is still good. The Mavea Meter lets you know when you need to replace your pitcher by the meter on the top. 



Something I found really cool is that MAVEA will even send you a pre-paid shipping label to recycle your used cartridges. 

Want to win your own MAVEA water pitcher? Well they are kind enough to give two away! Here's how...
*Leave me a comment telling me why you need a water filter (1 entry)
*Follow "Our Family Treat" (1 Entry)

You have until April 2nd at Midnight to enter.  Open to US residents only. Winner will be chosen by Random.org and will be announced on April 3rd...you will then have 3 days to contact me!  

Disclosure: I was provided this product free of charge. Opinions expressed are my own. Individual results may vary.

I truly do NEED a new water purifier pitcher. We had a Brita until recently and I accidentally dropped it and broke it. Whether or not I win, I think I will buy this brand when I get a new one. I love the sensor that tells you when to change out your filter. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

I would love this water filter. I have never had one but have always wanted to try a water filter pitcher. This one looks awesome.

brenda said...

I just got telling my husband like an hour ago that I need to drink more water and less DP. I would love the water filter!

cjvierow said...

Very nice looking pitcher--and really like the recycle filter thing. Living in Utah, one usually has a water softener or filter. If not, you "learn" how to get rid of water spots and drink bottled water or get some kind of filter thing. Would be great to try this water filtration pitcher. I have you in my google reader--does that count as "following"? Great blog! CJ

I hope I win because my husband and I go through about a case of waters a week. Sometimes even 2 cases. We would love a pitcher!

I follow!

We would love a water filter. We have been trying to increase our water intake greatly, and love the way it makes us feel. I've been following your blog for a couple of weeks now.

Carrian said...

Love this! We are also water drinkers. No pop in our house and since I'm pregnant I am trying to stay on top of it even more!

Booth Confessions said...

i would like to have one of these!

Chalene McGrath said...

I'm a fan now. Bring on the recipes! I am a crazy collector!

Chalene McGrath said...

If this helps me drink more water (I really only like COLD water), and will help me lessen my Diet Coke consumption...BRING.IT.ON!!!

The Sandbergs said...

Garrett and I totally NEED this because it's so hot in Hawaii and we are constantly drinking water. We usually refill our water bottles with tap water cuz it's so expensive to buy new water bottles every week. So, this pitcher would be so nice. It would be great to have cold purified water to look forward to on a hot day!

And of course we follow the blog. I'm on today to find a good cookie recipe to make some friends a treat tomorrow!

Okay I really do need this!! Since we moved back to UT I promised Gerry I would stop buying bottled water...call me crazy but in CA and NV I never trusted their water so we have only drank bottle water for 4 years...adds up! So now I am back to tap water...and I just don't like it as much and find myself dehydrated...don't you think I NEED this!! :)

I am a water junkie. I drink so so much of it. We have nasty tasting tap water and are forced to buy gallons of water in jugs. So not afforadable nor good for the environment. I'd love to win this and change our ways

Nupur said...

I would love to have a new water filter because I drink water almost exclusively as a healthy choice (as against sugary sodas and juices) and come summer, I'll need a lot of fresh clean water :)

Lisa said...

My kids love water and drink it all day. We need this!!

I would love these water pitchers, because I only drink water and my husband only drinks soda because he doesn't like our water. I'm sick of buying bottled water all the time!

Elaine said...

I need one because I am taste-sensitive to water (I know..) so we buy a lot of bottled water..in gallons but it adds up!!!

Ashley said...

My husband and I currently use a Brita filter because the city water is quite aweful. I don't mind drinking city water, but our current city has nasty water! We are in need of a new pitcher because I can tell ours hasn't been filtering as well (even with changing the filter).

Josh and Amy said...

I have never been a huge fan of Brita water filters and I have been trying to find one that I like. I love that this one tells you when to change the filter, virtually eliminating the guess work. If I don't win I might have to try this out!

Moni said...

All we pretty much drink in my household is water and I have been wanting one of these really bad. This would be great to win!

Thanks!

TBC said...

I have had a Brita pitcher for many years now and it has been working really well, but this would be a really nice change for me.
Thank you.

TBC said...

I've had a Brita pitcher for years now and it has worked really well for me- I think it's time for a change now.

Thank you.

Our water is cloudy and tastes awful. And I've given up bottled water due to the extreme waste of plastic bottles, so I could really use a filtered pitcher.

Sarah said...

I would love to have that for my baby who just started drinking water

Esme said...

I hate to say this because living in S. Cal we have the worst water I have ever tasted. Filtering your water is a more environmental way to be.

I need this water filtering pitcher because having to drink directly from the kitchen sink tap is icky! I hate having to wait for the cloudy water to turn clear! Found your blog tonight! Love it!!

Thanks!

Diane said...

I'm in college and its hard to run back and forth to the bathroom to fill up a glass of water, and I hate wasting water bottles. So I decided to buy a britta filter, but I feel as if they don't filter the water well at all and they are so expensive to replace.

that looks great!! My family drinks tons of water too so this would be perfect for us.

Stephanie said...

I would love to win a water filter because I don't like the way our tap water tastes

Angela said...

Our family would love a water filter. We generally just drink straight from the tap so this would be great. Maybe it would help me drink more water too!!! I'm always drinking a ton at night to try and make up for what I missed during the day.

Angela said...

I am a follower. I recently discovered your blog and I love it! I have tried at least one recipe so far and I can't wait to try more.

Woohoo!!! said...

Just a couple of reasons...I LOVE water and hate the way our water tastes AND....I love things like this to add to my food storage.

I too NEED this! I stopped drinking soda 7 years ago and am a water bottle freak, sadly we don't have filtered water in our older than dirt house in Vegas. We do recycle but this way is so much greener and convienent!

Heidi said...

I would love a water filter so I never have to buy bottled water again. Our tap water is just not suitable to drink!
