Cuisinart CleanWater 2-Gallon Countertop Water-Filtration System
Keep clean, refreshing drinking water readily available throughout the day with this sleek-looking countertop water-filtration system. The dispenser provides a single spigot and two push-on controls: one for room-temperature water and the other for chilled water (a blue LED light indicates when the water has properly chilled to 44 degrees F). Enjoy cool drinking water on its own, mixed with ice and a lemon or lime wedge, or added to flavored drink mixes for instant lemonade, fruit punch, or other favorites on a hot day. The filtration system offers a 1-1/2-gallon capacity: its upper water tank holds about a 1/2 gallon of unfiltered water, the lower tank holds about a 3/4 gallon of filtered water, and the internal cold-water tank holds about a 1/4 gallon. In addition to its removable, upper water tank with a flip-top lid for easy filling, the water dispenser comes equipped with a GF-80 filter, which reduces contaminants such as lead (98.7 percent), chlorine (taste and odor; 97.5 percent), mercury (92.8 percent), benzene (84.1 percent), cadmium (96.6 percent), copper (85 percent), tetrachloroethylene (92.5 percent), and toluene (89.8 percent). The filter lasts for about three months of average household use. Other details include a 12-week filter timer, a removable plastic drainage plug at the bottom of the unit, and an easy-to-clean design. The water-filtration system measures approximately 11 by 10-1/2 by 17-1/2 inches and carries a three-year limited warranty.
