We all know water’s good for us, but there are so many trendy hot issues related to water…
what’s in it?
what happens to the bottles?
how does it taste?
I grew up drinking good old-fashioned tap water. At the cottage we drank “town water” because you didn’t want to drink what came out of the tap (something to do with that saying about not peeing in your own swimming pool).
About ten years ago, my husband and I got a water cooler as a gift and started drinking bottled water from our water cooler. We loved the taste and the temperature of our nice cold water. We didn’t love the hassle of schlepping to the water store every other week to exchange our empty bottles for full ones.
Lo and behold, Cuisinart has come up with just the product for me. Cuisinart Clean Water‘s countertop water filtration system dispenses hot (instant oatmeal…instantly!!), cold (enough for me after a run) and room-temperature water (for my picky three year old who complains when water’s too cold).
No more schlepping huge bottles around, since I just fill the 2-gallon removable water tank with tap water. Cha-ching!
The filter is expected to last a couple of months, and removes chlorine, mercury, benzene and copper from our tap water (leaving the fluoride which I think is good!)
Here’s me showing you my new water cooler.
As a bonus today (because I’m feeling generous and because it’s on the same memory card and I can’t stop giggling when I look at it!) I’m also including a little helpful hint for those of you suffering from puffy eyes as a result of seasonal allergies.
