How much: $36.99 suggested retail price.
Pro: From Petaluma-based CamelBak, this rectangular jug is a time- and space-saver. It filters water as fast as you can fill it from the tap; that’s 10 times faster than comparable filter pitchers. The streamlined 10-cup jug also fits in most refrigerator doors. This pitcher filters water twice – once while filling the container, and again when pouring water out. The result is great-tasting water with chlorine and other chemical tastes removed. (It even got rid of the boron taste in Davis.) BPA-free and dishwasher safe, the pitchers are available in three colors: aqua, charcoal and purple.
Con: It needs a new filter every four months, but that’s still twice as long as other makes.
