When we cook we use regular ole' tap water. I'm sure it's not contaminated but I guess being filtered wouldn't hurt. ZeroWater filters produce the only filtered water that meets the FDA definition for TDS in purified bottled water.
The ZeroWater 10 cup pitcher was pretty easy to assemble. Just wash the pitcher and screw the filter onto the bottom of the insert and start running your water. It does take a bit of time for the water to go through the filter and fill the pitcher. You then take the handy dandy TDS meter (stored on top of pitcher) to make sure the water reading is at 000. Just for fun our tap water reading was 394 and our filtered fridge water was 323.
The ZeroWater pitcher removes virtually all of the dissolved solids as well as the chlorine taste. The capacity of this pitcher allows for it to be used conveniently for cooking as well as drinking. A favorite feature of mine is the one-hand Pull & Pour-button spout to fill any bottle or cup with ease.
The replacement filters start at $29.99 for two but does get discounted when you purchase in bulk. The cost of a filtered gallon of water is about $.50 which is a bargain compared to bottled water. The site also offers filter coupons as well as a recycling program for additional savings.
Discount/Coupon Code: $15 off a 10-Cup pitcher with the code: blog15 at the ZeroWater website.
