Brita Water Filter Pitcher is on the Way. Does it work? Brita 42556 Grand Pitcher-The Taste will tell.

Yesterday I ordered a Brita water filter pitcher from  I am tired of buying bottled water so I finally decided to give the Brita filtered pitcher a try.  I read the reviews and saw some less than positive comments on the pitcher but am hoping I have one of the good experiences. 
I ordered the Brita 42556 Grand Pitcher because I wanted a large capacity (80 ounces).
I understand the filtering process is slow and some people find the lid comes off too easily but I am willing to try this in hopes of eliminating the expense and inconvenience of buying bottled water. I will give a review of the pitcher once I receive it.
