Product of the week: Cuisinart CleanWater Countertop Water Filter

Cuisinart CleanWater Countertop Filter

The 2-gallon Cuisinart CleanWater countertop filter dispenses both hot and cold water.

Today marks the launch of our weekly blog post on a featured product, and this week, we have decided to highlight the Cuisinart CleanWater countertop filter. Filters Fast carries this water filter in both 1.5 and 2 gallon capacities. Like most countertop water filters, the unit sits directly on your counter, providing you with fresh, filtered water for drinking and cooking. However, unlike most countertop filters, these require no manual sink installation. The 1.5 gallon size dispenses both chilled and room temperature water, and the 2 gallon size dispenses hot water, as well. These filters also feature a curved design in the front, to facilitate the process of filling up coffee pots, pans, and reusable stainless water bottles, as well as LED lights to signal when the water has been heated or chilled to an optimal temperature. The lid of the water tank is a flip top for easy refilling, and the 12-week filter timer conveniently reminds you when it’s time for the filter to be changed.

Filters Fast also makes it convenient for you to replace the filter; with our auto-delivery feature, you can set up your customer account to automatically deliver a Cuisinart CleanWater countertop replacement filter every four months. The purchase of the unit includes one replacement water filter, which reduces many contaminants such as chlorine, mercury, benzene, cadmium, lead, copper, tetrachloroethylene, toluene, dirt, sediment and rust. The prices of the water filter units and replacement filters are unbeatable, when you consider the contaminants removed, along with all of the other unique features we’ve listed above.

Consumer Reports Water Filters — Best Buys and Recommendations

Consumer Reports Water Filters Reviewed

In the May issue of Consumer Reports, you’ll find the Consumer Reports Water Filters reviews and recommendations. Consumer Reports reviewed water filters in the following categories: carafes (water filter pitchers), faucet filters, countertop filter systems, undersink filter systems, and reverse osmosis filter systems.

The magazine reviewed some water filters that we carry and others that we do not (as of yet) stock, but I wanted to share with you some of the “best buy” or “recommended” water filters from the article that we carry at Filters Fast.

In the water carafe department, Consumer Reports recommends the Brita Smart Pitcher, which filters out chlorine, lead, mercury, copper, cadmium and zinc, all at the low price of around $48 a year (with our six pack of Brita filter cartridges, you should be able to get that down to just $18 a year!). We also carry a chrome Brita Smart Pitcher.

One of our newest faucet filters, the Culligan FM-15A Faucet Filter, was named a best buy – as was the PUR FM-3700 Faucet Filter, which we will carry very soon. The Culligan Faucet Filter removes far more than most faucet filter systems. In addition to removing the taste and odor of Chlorine, the Culligan FM-15A Filter will remove turbidity (cloudiness), atrazine, lindane, particulates (class 1), cryptosporidium cysts and giardia cysts.

Moving under the sink to the under sink water filters, Consumer Reports recommended the OmniFilter CBF-3 Under Sink Filter System. One of our most popular under sink water filters, this system will filter out the aforementioned contaminants, plus very harmful cysts, asbestos, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). The Consumer Reports Water Filters article stated that the OmniFilter CBF-3 boasts excellent removal of chloroform as well.

Several other water filters and water filter systems we carry received high marks, but these products were the ones that Consumer Reports listed as “best buy” or “recommended.” We cannot publish the article in its entirety here, but if you’d like to inquire about how any of our other products faired, we would happy to share any info from the Consumer Reports Water Filters article.
