Elemaris XL by Mavea Kissin The Cook Giveaway and Review

The Elemaris XL Water Filtration Pitcher by Mavea is awesome.  This year we moved to a new house and the water is not very good tasting.  I've been wanting to try a Water Filtration Water Pitcher so when I got the chance to work with Mavea I was super excited! 
The Elemaris XL 9 cup pitch showed up at my house in very little time and I put it to use right away!  The filter was very easy to put into place and it made our water taste great!  Another reason I love Elemaris XL by Mevea is its Mavea Meter!  The meter uses a 3-way measurement including volume of water, water quality (hardness) and time to tell you exactly when it's time to change to a new filter!  As a mother of two young kids the last thing I want to have to do is try to remember when to replace filters!  With Mavea I don't have to!
I was really surprised when I used the water in my K-Cup coffee maker!  I was surprised that my coffee actually tasted better using the water from the Elemaris XL pitcher!  This got me thinking if it can make my coffee taste better what other beverages that I like making will taste better??  That's when I decided it was time to pull my favorite Cucumber Lemonade Recipe out! 
Cucumber Lemonade Recipe:

1- Large Cucumber
3/4 Cup Sugar
6 Cups Water
1/2 Cup of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice (we add a little more)
1 tsp Lemon Zest
3/4 tsp Salt
Ice Cubes
Putting it together:
1. Wash the Lemon(s) and cucumber.  Peel the Cucumber
2. Chop the cucumber up.  If it has a lot of seed remove some.  Add 2 cups of the water into a blender with the cucumber and sugar.
3. Blend until the sugar is dissolved (about 3 minutes).  Sieve the drink.
4. Add the remaining water and the cucumber mixture into a pitcher.
5. Add salt, Lemon Juice, Ice cubes, Lemon zest and stir really good to combine.
6.  Pour into glasses with more Ice cubes or Chill and then serve.
*You may garnish with a cucumber slice or a lemon wedge*

Let me just say that even my homemade Cucumber Lemonade tasted better with water from my Elemaris XL pitcher!  The Elemaris XL pitcher holds 9 cups of water so it was nice not to have to keep filling the pitcher up with more water, even with a recipe that called for a larger amount of water!
Elemaris XL by Mavea is certified to reduce:
Chlorine taste and odor
Heavy Metals
Agricultural Chemicals
Industrial Pollutants
I highly recommend Mavea Water Filtration Systems! Five stars in my book!

  1. That sounds so refreshing! Our city water has been having a lot of breaks in the lines and we have been off and on boil orders quite a few times this past year. I need to visit Mavea and check out their products!

  2. Never heard of Mavea. Thanks for sharing!

  3. The Mavea pitcher sounds great! I usually drink bottled water because I don't like our tap water. I like that this one tells you when you need a new filter.

  4. Thanks! I will check them out. My daughters well has some problems and one of these would be great!

  5. I love my Mavea water filtration pitcher - the water tastes so much better!

  6. We had another filter type pitcher years ago but gave it away before our last move. This holds way more water than that pitcher did and would be handy here! I love ice cold water!

  7. I am so picky about the water I drink, I need to check this out!

  8. Sounds tasty! I love to drink water flavored with veggies. I will be making this for the Labor Day weekend - sounds refreshing and the weather is suppose to be hot in Wisconsin this coming weekend.

  9. This looks great! I love adding to my water, and I know it would taste even better with a filter. I like it in blue.

  10. I would like to have a purple one! I love purple.

  11. The color choices are fantastic! It would be a hard choice. But I think the black would be my pick.

  12. I would go with the black one. Thanks!

  13. I like the red one.

  14. I would love a Elemaris XL in the cranberry red color it is beautiful

  15. I like the purple/plum colored one!

  16. I would most definitely get red!! Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

  17. I like the purple colored pitcher!

  18. I love love love the green...

  19. My favorite color is purple so I would want the purple one.

  20. If I won,I would choose a green pitcher, the purple is nice too but it would clash with my counters.

  21. Most likely black but I like the red too.

  22. I would probably get the red one.

  23. If you are looking for a good quality Mavea Water Filter then it's easy to buy it online from trusted and certified online dealers with quicker delivery time
