Start Your Year With an Instant Kitchen Upgrade That’s Less Than $65

Quench your thirst with great-tasting water and great design.

"Out with the old, in with the new"—or so the adage goes. This new year, say goodbye to your old, grimy water pitcher, and hello to beautiful filtration. With its striking minimalist design and understated elegance, LifeStraw offers up a water filter pitcher that you’ll actually want to display on your kitchen counter or dinner party spread. And starting at under $50, the sleek pitcher just might be the easiest kitchen upgrade you’ll make all year.

An unabashedly minimalist take on the water filter pitcher, the LifeStraw Home is influenced by modern Danish design principles to balance form and function.

With a design that considers aesthetics as well as ergonomics, the sleek, understated pitcher imbues a tactile handling experience for the user. Plus, the compact, streamlined footprint makes the pitcher easy to tuck away in your refrigerator—although you may not want to.

In an admittedly, shall we say, oversaturated water filter market, LifeStraw’s beautiful style sets it apart. Nixing the boxy, uninspired form of water pitchers past, LifeStraw Home makes a splash with its signature tapered body and gently balanced composition. Available in three sizes, two finishes, and multiple colorways, the award-winning design features hand-blown borosilicate glass with a carefully-contoured frame and handle. (The pitcher is also offered in lightweight, BPA-free plastic.) Whatever option calls to you, a coordinating silicone base can be added to prevent wear and slippage—and removed for easy cleaning and maintenance.

A modern assortment of fun filter colors—and silicone bases to match—include Stormy Blue (pictured above) and the new Wisteria—a soft, on-trend lavender.
