Don't buy if you have an old Kenwood water filter!
on 30 January 2012
As other reviewers have mentioned, these cartridges will not fit some older water filters- I took the chance and found out the hard way! I have a Kenwood WF153 filter, and unfortunately these cartridges don't fit, as they're too tall.
As a guide, if your old cartridge is 9.5 cm from the top of the flange (the widest part of the cartridge) to the bottom of the filter, these may not fit, as they'll hit the bottom of the filter pocket. If it's 7.5 cm or less from the flange to the bottom, they should fit ok. The flange (the bit which seals the cartridge into the filter) is the same diameter in both types- it's the length of the portion below the flange which causes compatibility problems, if the cartridge is longer than the pocket.
The seller really should put this in the product description! Buy the Laica Classic ones instead, which fit fine, or just buy a box of Universal filters from your local supermarket.
