Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable to Use, and Water Tastes Great We have been using our LifeStraw Home pitcher for several weeks now, and I enjoy using it so much more than our old Pur pitcher. The filter lid flips open and closes depending on the flow of water coming in, so I don't have to ever remove the lid for filling. The pitcher is a nice size and is easy to handle and pour. For our family of five, we probably should have a larger sizes pitcher, but we try to refill after most uses, so this size has worked fine for us. I only give the four stars because I can't find any independent lab testing on this pitcher, and because it doesn't remove as many chemicals in the water as other filters on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this pitcher We are a ranching family, and deal with unreliable water quality due to water line b. We bought this pitcher so that no matter where our water is coming from, we know it's safe for our family. Let me tell you what--even if we did have great water, I think I'd still use this pitcher because it makes water taste SO GOOD. I did an experiment where I filled up my Yeti at my doctor's office (good city water but has kind of a funny taste) and brought it home, and put it through the pitcher, and the goofy taste was gone. Our water is also very hard, and this does away with that dilemma. Pitcher seems sturdy to me, and I'm so glad my husband found this for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, A Good Glass Filter I spent weeks searching for a decent filter with a glass housing and was amazed at what a stranglehold the plastic industry has on the world of water filters. Apparently Brita released one once, but it's not available anymore, and some other company made one, but you can literally only buy it in Europe. It's quite bizarre. There's also the Soma, but by the sound of it, it's not a very good product. Then suddenly I stumbled upon the LifeStraw Home, a fairly new product, as it was still a Kickstarter in 2018. The product delivers clean, crisp water in a glass container, and my purchase contributes to a great environmental and humanitarian cause to boot. Glad I was patient in my search and found the LifeStraw Home.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The glass broke in first week The product really looks nice and water was clean. We were so excited to get it. However, the glass broke in the first week of use itself. We were simply putting the jar on the granite countertop in the kitchen and one side touched the countertop first and immediately broke. This is design flaw. It should come with a silicon/rubber sleeve for the bottom part. I ordered through kickstart and now I do not know where to get the jar. I still have 5 filters left with me. Any idea? I'd only recommend this product if they can introduce some kind of sleeve to cover the bottom part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Great The pitcher is really pretty and it is great to have glass rather than plastic. Plus, it filters out a lot more than many other filtering pitchers (including lead). Overall, I am really happy with it but there are two cautions. First, you have to 3-4 pitcherfuls of water through the filter when you get started or the water tastes awful. But once you have done that, the water is good. Second, it takes a little (but not much) longer to refill than most filtering pitchers. But no regrets on the buy, would buy again, and have even sent one as a gift since using mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best filtering glass pitcher :) I really like this pitcher, because I enjoy the feeling of drinking water that I know is clean and tastes pure. This pitcher filters water fairly quickly, is easy to fill because the top comes off, and is well made. When I bought it, I was worried that the glass may be defective because of some of the poor reviews, however, the pitcher has held up just fine the last month. Even clumsy me hasn't broken it with an accidental bop on the table or a smack on the handle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water tastes good I bought two, one for my parents and one for myself. The primary reason I bought this is because it removes micro plastics from our water. I would rate this higher, but it does not remove Flouride from water. So now, I use a Berkey to remove the flouride and then filter that water to remove the micro plastics. This results in some pretty expensive water, but it is the only way I have figured out how to do it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The glass broke I went to get water and the bottom touched another bottle with a light tap and water went every where. There was a little hole on the bottom of the container. I could not believe that is all it took for it to break. I had the bottle for a month. It’s not strong enough to be something used often. But I enjoyed the clean water while it lasted, I’m glad I didn’t buy a bunch of filters.

Hi, I clean the glass pitcher and the house fairly reasonably. Why is it that there is always brownish stains in the inner side of the house all the time? Is there a specific way to clean this and is this normal stain?

Asked by: mw1okay
I have the same. I assume it is residue from my very hard water. I have the same in a plastic bottle I fill to water my plants. I use a paper towel and gently wipe the inside of the housing.

Since replacing the carbon part of the filter the water filters extremely slowly. We have tried soaking the filter separately in water but nothing seems to help.

Why does it have a warning for "cancer and reproductive harm" under the filter specifications?

Asked by: Lizskriz
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (commonly referred to as Proposition 65), requires manufacturers to include warnings on packaging and websites for products that may expose Californians to chemicals that included on the state’s Proposition 65 list. The warnings are intended to help California consumers make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals from the products they use. Prop 65 is “a right to know law” and does not expressly prohibit the sale of products containing its listed chemicals, it does require the manufacturer to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning. A Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements. There are currently over 900 chemicals listed on the Proposition 65 list. We are committed to quality. LifeStraw filters are rigorously tested to meet protocols established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and NSF International/ANSI. Additionally, LifeStraw products are made from BPA-free, high-quality, food-grade materials. For more information on California Proposition 65, please visit:
