Worth sticking with the genuine and authentic OEM product!
December 28, 2018
The EveryDrop EDR4RXD1B (or EDR4RXD2B for the 2-pack) is the genuine and authentic replacement water filter for the Maytag (UKF8001) refrigerator filters. These fit perfectly into my KitchenAid fridge without any issues and is worth every penny. The water flows very well, and lasts a long time! These are also made in the USA by the original equipment manufacturer.
For something that is purifying water, which my family drinks significant quantities of every single day, it isn't worth trying to save a few bucks to go with aftermarket products that don't work as well, or to end up using some counterfeit item made in China (with ineffective filtering, and likely with questionable material quality/sanitation).
Beware of counterfeits being sold by third party sellers on the Amazon marketplace (typically using the the older Maytag Puriclean II packaging and labeling). I was once fooled into buying and using those before, which only lasted a few months, before it started failing. After careful inspection I had noticed the print and labeling was off or unclear, and the quality of the plastic filter itself was imperfect (some rough edges and imperfections). But worse than having wasted my money on the counterfeit, was that water passed through the fake filter that my family drank, causing who knows what kind of side-effects down the road! Never again will I let that happen!
I am sticking with these EveryDrop genuine filters, sold and shipped by Amazon! I highly recommend these!
