A Berkey Water Filter Ensures Pure Drinking Water

The need for a reliable source of pure drinking water in the home is stronger than ever, particularly with recent scares regarding the presence of contaminants in the water such as Chromium-VI, a carcinogen. If you are going to place a water purifier in the kitchen it may as well be one that is going to look good as well as perform well.

There are many different types of water purifiers that remove contaminants and the Berkey water filter system is one of the best. It is such a powerful water filter system that it is classed as a water purifier and it is available in a range of sizes from the huge Imperial Berkey down to the more portable water filters that can be moved as needed.

Pictured below is a Berkey Light water filter with two Black Berkey filters fitted.

Berkey Light Water Filter

The Berkey water filter may be used to filter a normal household water supply or it can also be set up to filter a more contaminated water supply such as water from a lake, river or well. It doesn’t cost a lot to run and the Black Berkey replacement cartridge is cleanable and long lasting to ensure that you have clean drinking water for long periods of time before replacements are required.

As mentioned, the filtration unit used in the Berkey water filter systems is known as the Black Berkey. This is a filtration system that is extremely comprehensive and has gone through extensive testing by independent EPA approved laboratories where it has been shown to be effective in removing an amazingly long list of water contaminants. For peace of mind it appears that if you are using a Black Berkey water filter you will be removing as close to one hundred per cent of the pathogens in the water as it is possible to get.

The Berkey water filter units are available as large stainless steel units that would look perfectly suited sitting in the modern kitchen. They are available in 5 sizes with the stainless steel finish and there is also a light weight clear plastic unit available too.

Note that this water filter also fits Kenmore refrigerators manufactured by Frigidaire, those with part numbers 46-9911, 9911, 9916.

The Frigidaire PureSource 2 Water Filter is one of the leading filtration units in the market and is capable of virtually eliminating any trace of such things as cysts, particulates, lead, mercury, herbicides, Alachlor and other impurities.

This unit is simple to slide in and out of position making the process of replacement an easy task.

A refrigerator water filter is even more effective if it is replaced on a regular basis with the recommended interval being around every six months. The reason for this is because as the water filter does its job it collects the contaminants eventually saturate the unit. As the build up continues the filter becomes less effective and the contaminants can begin to leak into the processed water. This means your water filter is not capable of doing its job any longer and you may have noticed that the taste of the water was beginning to deteriorate or that the water pressure had dropped.

This product fits all Frigidaire & Kenmore refrigerators with a slide out filter cartridge.

The Bialetti Moka Stovetop Espresso Maker

The Bialetti Moka Stovetop Espresso Maker originated in Italy when Alfonso Bialetti created his stovetop coffee maker in 1933. Ever since, the espresso coffee makers have been a staple part of the Italian household with the majority of homes containing one. As far as most people are concerned when you talk about Italian espresso you will find that they have come out of a Bialetti stovetop espresso maker.

It probably should be pointed out that if you were in Italy this would be known as a Moka machine which is what we know as an espresso.

The Bialetti espresso maker is made out of aluminum and is octagonal in shape, a distinctive design that is quite well known in the espresso making world. Also very distinctive is the “Little Man” logo on the side of the pot which is also a very recognisable symbol throughout Europe.

Features of the Bialetti Moka Stovetop Espresso Maker

This espresso maker comes in a range of sizes so it is possible to buy the one that best suits your lifestyle. If you live alone or only one person in the household drinks coffee then you will only need to buy the 1 espresso cup model. For larger gatherings you can get the larger capacity makers right up to the 12 cup model.

Coffee Maker sizes available

No of Cups Capacity Height Base Width
1 cup 2.0 fl oz / 60ml 5 ¼” 2 ½”
3 cups 6.5 fl oz / 200ml 6 ¼” 3 ¼”
6 cups 10.0 fl oz / 300ml 8 ½” 4”
9 cups 18.5 fl oz / 550ml 10” 4 1/8”
12 cups 25.0 fl oz / 775ml 11 ½” 5”

 Each of these coffee makers are available for sale from various online and bricks and mortar stores. More details on how you can buy one are available below.

Cautionary Notes About the Bialetti Moka Stovetop Espresso Maker

This coffee maker does not make espresso coffee, at least, not what espresso drinkers would call espresso. Instead it makes a dark concentrated coffee that is similar in style but certainly not the same.

Do not wash the machine with detergent, instead just rinse it under the tap.

The more often the machine is used the better the coffee will taste. If you haven’t made coffee with the machine for a while you should make a weak coffee and throw it out.

How To Use the Bialetti Moka Stovetop Espresso Maker

Open the coffee maker by unscrewing the top and bottom chambers. Take out the coffee basket and then fill the lower chamber with cool water. You should then fill the coffee basket with your coffee, any type of coffee will do but make sure it is medium to coarse grind or else the pot will not operate as expected.

Make sure the coffee maker has been put back together again properly with both halves joined together securely. No you can place the coffee maker on the stove over a medium flame. If the flame is too high the handle on the coffee maker will be in danger of melting.

When the upper chamber of the coffee maker is filled, usually after around 4 – 5 minutes, the coffee maker should be taken off the flame immediately. You should never boil the coffee inside the coffee maker because it will not only adversely affect the taste of the coffee but it will also damage the coffee maker.
