We’re big fans of the colorful and quirky Bobble water bottle, so when we found out that there was a jug-sized version available, we had to get our hands on it and try it for ourselves. Just like its smaller cousin, the Bobble jug is made from recycled, BPA-free plastic and encourages us to kick the bottled water habit by making purifying water fast, convenient and easy on the eyes. If you’ve been thinking about picking up one of these curvaceous and refined receptacles, read on for our full review.

PROS:

Aesthetically speaking, the Bobble jug is just as delightful to hold (it’s very curvaceous) as it is to behold. Compared to other water filtering pitchers, it’s a bit smaller which makes a big difference when you’re looking for a spot in your fridge to cram it into. The candy hues add a nice pop of color to your kitchen, but if you’re more of an achromatic person, you can just as easily opt for black or silver.

The Bobble isn’t just a pretty face and nice body either. The filter performs well (faster than others like the Brita), and the non-reservoir design eliminates the need to wait for your water to filter. Aside from being BPA-free, recyclable and easy to use, the Bobble jug even has a friendly reminder service that emails you when it’s time to replace your filter.

    My bobble is not instantaneous which it claims it is, which means I have to stand at the sink waiting for it\\\’s tiny reservoir to empty over and over and I find it dribble when it pours so it leaves a puddle on the counter or the floor. If it is going to claim to filter instantly, it should actually filter instantly.

    My water had a real metallic taste. I think the filter was in too long. Would that be the cause of the terrible taste?
