Product Reviews

There are a lot of different Keurig machines on the market. To be honest, all of them are brilliant. If you bought a coffee maker with the Keurig name on it, then we are 100% positive that you will be happy with it. That is why finding the ten Keurigs was complicated. Any of their products could have easily made their way onto this list.

The machines you find below are the ‘best of the best. So, go through them. Read the reviews, and find the best Keurig for your kitchen.

Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker

We will kick off this list of the best Keurig machines with one of the most popular products in their range; the K-Classic. It boasts a ton of different features, too, including:

  • Works with K-Cup sizes 6, 8, and 10oz.
  • 48-oz water reservoir, which is more than enough to brew 6-cups of coffee.
  • Automatic descaling mode. This helps to keep the coffee maker nice and clean.
  • Simple to use

As with all of the Keurigs you find on this list, the K-Classic will be dead simple to use. All you need to do is fill up the water reservoir with water, insert your K-Cup, and select your cup size. Your amazing-tasting brew will be ready to drink in mere minutes.

The K-Classic does have an automatic descaling mode built into it. This is designed to help remove calcium and mineral build-up in the coffee machine. This can impact the flavor of your coffee. Again, this mode is simple to use. It is recommended that you run it at least once every 6-months. You will need to pair this mode with Keurig descaling tablets for the maximum clean.

Outside of this, the K-Classic is the most straightforward machine in the Keurig range. This is the perfect coffee brewer model for those new to the world of Keurig machines or just wish for something nice and compact that will not take up much space in their kitchen.


  • Simple to use
  • Works with the entire K-Cup range of products.
  • Easy to descale
  • Smaller machine, despite offering a larger water reservoir. 


  • No control over water temperature.
  • No control over brew strength outside of changing cup size.
  • Does not work with K-Mug and K-Carafe pods.

Keurig K-Select Coffee Machine

The K-Select maybe another ‘simple’ machine from Keurig, but it is still more than worthy of a place in your kitchen. If you want a machine where you do not necessarily need to do much more than hit a single button to brew up an excellent beverage, then the K-Select may be just the ticket. Just look at the features this machine brings to the table:

  • Brews sizes 6, 8, 10, and 12oz K-Cup pods.
  • 52-oz water reservoir, which should be enough for around 5 standard cups of coffee.
  • Removing the drip tray allows you to insert a travel mug for ‘on the go’ cups of coffee.

The K-Select is compatible with almost all K-Cups in the Keurig range. Although, there will be a few more complicated drinks that the K-Select will not work with. However, these are few and far between. The chances are that if you have a favorite pod, it will work with your Keurig.

The K-Select is simple to use. Once you load up the K-Pod, the machine will work out the optimal brewing settings for it. However, if you wish for a stronger or a weaker cup of coffee, you can adjust the cup size. For most people, this should be more than enough strength control, though. However, this will be the limit for adjusting brew strength.

Best Wolf Coffee Maker Gourmet Review

The modern design ensures that the K-Select should easily fit into most kitchen designs. You will also be pleased to know that the K-Select is available in many different colors, so you can easily find the product style that best matches your personality.


  • Allows multiple cup sizes
  • Reasonably-sized water reservoir
  • Works with most travel mugs
  • Takes one button press to brew a coffee


  • No brew strength adjustment
  • No temperature adjustment
  • Does not brew specialty brews from Keurig.

Keurig K-Cafe Coffee Maker

The Keurig K-Cafe may look slightly more complicated than the previous two products on this list, but don’t let that put you off. It just means that you will have a bit more control over the style of brew that you make. These are the features loaded into the K-Cafe:

  • Works will all K-Cup pods. This includes specialty drinks such as lattes and cappuccinos.
  • Can produce ice coffee.
  • 60-oz water reservoir
  • Works with travel mugs
  • Built-in milk frother
  • 6, 8, 10, and 12oz sizes, plus 2oz shots for the lattes and cappuccino drinks.
  • Can use the reusable coffee filter

It is the last feature that we find the most interesting here. This is because this coffee maker will allow you to use your ground coffee. You will need to purchase the Keurig reusable coffee filter to do this. However, the cost isn’t high. Plus, you will be saving a lot more money in comparison to buying the pods. Although, of course, if you want to use the pods, they will still work with the K-Cafe. It takes mere minutes to brew a cup like that.

You have a surprising amount of control over the coffee brew you produce. While you will not have complete control over the temperature (outside of hot and cold brews), you do have control over the cup size. This will help control the strength. We particularly love the ability to produce coffee shots, which means you can get a nice, concentrated dose of caffeine. Perfect for when you wake up in the morning!

All in all, if you want an ‘advanced’ machine, but you do not want to have complicated button presses, then the Keurig K-Cafe may be great for you.


  • Built-in milk frother.
  • Works with multiple cup dimensions
  • Can produce coffee shots
  • Can produce ice drinks
  • Can make your own filter coffee.


  • Do not have full control over the temperature of the coffee.
  • The milk frother makes the product considerably larger. Not great if you never plan on using the milk frother.

Keurig K-Elite

If you simply cannot wait to down a fantastic tasting brew, then the Keurig K-Elite may be perfect for you. This fantastic machine can brew a complete K-Cup drink in under one minute. It is called the ‘Elite’ for a reason too. This product is brimming with features. This includes:

  • A massive 75-oz water reservoir.
  • Quiet brew technology. You will barely hear the K-Elite when it is in action.’
  • Can give hot water ‘on-demand’
  • Works with 5 different cup dimensions; 4oz, 6oz, 8oz, 10oz, and 12oz
  • Has a ‘strength’ button if you want to boost the strength of your coffee
  • Temperature regulator feature

 There is just so much packed into the K-Elite that it is pretty tough to know where to begin. Although, we must say that we are huge fans of the large water reservoir. This 75-oz tank can be removed, which makes refilling your Keurig K-Elite as mess-free as possible. The larger tank size is more than enough to keep even a couple of avid coffee drinkers fueled throughout the day.

We also love the inclusion of the temperature control feature. This will allow you to adjust the temperature of the K-Elite from 187F and 192F. It may not seem like much of a difference between the minimum and maximum, but this difference is enormous in the world of coffee. If you play around with the settings, even by a degree or two, you will see just how much it shakes up the taste of your coffee. 

We were also surprised at just how quiet the K-Elite is when it comes to brewing coffee. The K-Elite is generally a relatively quiet coffee brewer in the first place. But very few of them brew coffee as fast as the K-Elite does.


  • Fast coffee brewing
  • Temperature control functionality
  • Large water reservoir


  • Does not allow you to use your own filter coffee. You must use the Keurig K-Cups.

Keurig K-Mini Plus

The K-Mini Plus is small, but it still packs a punch. However, let’s be honest, what else did you expect from this company? These are the features:

  • Designed to be portable
  • K-Cup holder built into the K-Mini Plus
  • Compatible with the K-Cup reusable coffee filter, so you can use your own ground coffee
  • Water reservoir holds enough water for one cup

Firstly, we want to point out that if you are looking for a Keurig coffee machine purely to use in the comfort of your own home, then the K-Mini Plus probably isn’t the best option for you. This product has been designed to be portable, and we feel that it lacks several features for ‘at at home’ brewers.

If you look at the design of the K-Mini Plus, you can see that everything about it has been designed with portability in mind. This begins with the small water reservoir (enough to brew a single cup), plus the ability to store up to 9 K-Cups right there in the unit. It is just 5″ wide too, which means that you can store it in your bag. This is a brilliant machine, assuming you have access to water and electricity when you are ‘out and about.

Despite the smaller size of the K-Mini Plus, Keurig has still managed to include a couple of ‘much-loved features into it. This includes the ability to select one of two cup dimensions. You also have that amazing ‘strong’ button on the machine, which is perfect if you want to add a quick hit of extra strength into the coffee. 

This is compatible with nearly all Keurig K-Cup products on the market. Although, do bear in mind that the K-Mini Plus will not make iced coffee drinks. This is pretty much just for those that want to drink a good, strong cup.


  • Perhaps the most portable product in the Keurig range
  • Just 5″ wide
  • Holds K-Cups in the unit. This make it even more portable.


  • It is portable, which means it isn’t really ideal for those who want a machine purely for ‘at home’ use.
  • The reservoir is a bit small.

Keurig K-Duo Coffee Maker

Want a K-Cup but do not want to sacrifice the versatility of a standard filter coffee maker? Well, the Keurig K-Duo Coffee Maker may be perfect for you. This is a single-serve coffee maker and a drip filter coffee maker rolled into the same unit. These are the features that the K-Duo Coffee Maker brings to the table:

  • Can use filter coffee or K-Cups
  • 12-cup carafe
  • The single-cup coffee maker offers 6, 8, 10, and 12oz size options.
  • 60oz water reservoir
  • Auto brew function

The carafe and single-serve coffee maker are different coffee-making methods, yet both rolled into the same unit. You have the single-serve coffee option for when you want to create your more specialist drinks, and you have the carafe if you are making coffee for larger groups of people or just want a standard bit of filter coffee. We feel that a lot of people would enjoy this sort of thing.

We do love the fact that you can control just how much coffee you make with the carafe. So few coffee makers offer this level of control. Using the carafe is the same as using the single-serve part. You just need to select the number of cups that you want to make. The machine will do the rest of the work for you.

We particularly love the fact that the K-Duo makes use of a shared water reservoir. This is a good design. It means that you do not have to constantly worry about whether two reservoirs are kept filled up. It makes brewing coffee even simpler.

As with most Keurig on the market, the K-Duo comes complete with a ‘strong’ brew button. This is ideal if you love your coffee to be slightly stronger than usual and want to add a touch of pizzazz into it.


  • Having both a carafe and a single-serve coffee maker offers the best of both worlds.
  • The shared reservoir is handy
  • Easy to use


  • Despite having a carafe, this machine is not compatible with K-Carafe pods.
  • Because this is two machines rolled into one, it is a larger machine. It may be too bulky for smaller kitchens.

Keurig K575 K-Cup Pod Coffee Brewer

With the Keurig K575, we are starting to move more into the heavily feature-rich products from Keurig. We are also starting to crack into the more oversized products. The Keurig K575 is perfect for a family of coffee drinkers. These are the features you can enjoy here:

  • 80-oz removable tank
  • Compatible with both K-Cup and K-Carafe pods
  • Single coffee cup sizes supported are 4oz, 6oz 8oz, 10oz,  and 12oz
  • Carafe cup sizes supported are 22oz, 24oz, and 30oz
  • Touch screen
  • Adjustable temperature settings
  • ‘Strong Brew’ button.

Let’s start by talking about the K-Carafe support because none of the other coffee machines have supported it so far. The K-Carafe pods are precisely the same as the K-Cup pods. However, unlike the K-Cup pods, the Carafe version is designed to support more significant amounts of coffee. Think along the lines of making perfect Keurig coffee for around 6-8 people at once with a single button press, much in the same way as brewing a single coffee with your Keurig.

The Keurig K575 brews coffee exceedingly fast too. A single cup is finished in under a minute, and a large carafe will take just a few minutes.

The touchscreen adds a bit more control to the way that you make your coffee too. It is highly responsive, and navigating through the menus is an absolute breeze. It takes no more than a couple of screen taps to make the perfect brew for you.


  • Supports K-Carafe pods
  • Fast brewing
  • Larger water reservoir
  • Fantastic touch screen


  • You do not have full control of the brew strength
  • The machine is quite large

Keurig K475 Programmable Brewer

You will probably notice that the model number of this model is almost the same as the previous one. Why is this? Well, it is because it is the older version of the K575. While the features are similar, the Keurig K475 is a little bit cheaper. These are the features you can enjoy with this product:

  • 70oz removable water reservoir
  • Supports K-Carafe pods (22oz, 24oz, and 30oz)
  • Supports K-Cup pods.
  • Touchscreen
  • Control of the temperature (5 options)
  • Ability to add extra strength to your coffee brew.

The only real difference between the Keurig K475 and the K575 is the design of the product. The touch screen of the Keurig K475 is a little bit smaller too. For most people, this isn’t going to be that much of a problem. Both of these machines are going to be producing some brilliant cups of coffee.

You will love the ‘auto brew’ function packed into the Keurig K475. You can set it up to produce a coffee, so it is ready for when you wake up in the morning or even for when you get home from work. All of this is accomplished through the color touchscreen. Although, do bear in mind that because the touchscreen is about an inch smaller than that of the K575, It may not be ideal for those with the largest of hands, but we still feel those people will navigate the touchscreen still. The button is quite significant.


  • Large, removable reservoir
  • Temperature control
  • Can add extra strength to your brew
  • Works with both K-Carafe and K-Cup pods


  • The touchscreen is smaller than the K575.

Keurig K250 Single Serve K-Cup

If you want your Keurig to have bold colors, then the K250 may be perfect for you. Sure, there is a black model of the Keurig K250 available, but the real highlight will be the bright colors that you can’t find with any of the other Keurig models. For this reason, we feel that the K250 may be perfect for more modern kitchens that favor colors that pop out. 

These are the features that you can enjoy with the K250:

  • A 40-oz removable water reservoir.
  • Works with both K-Cup and K-Carafe pods
  • Touchscreen
  • Dispense hot water
  • Boost the strength of your coffee with a single button tap.

The Keurig K250 does not come with a carafe, sadly. However, these are a few Keurig products on the market that supports their K-Carafe pods. Luckily, the carafe can be purchased separately, and we highly recommend that you pick one up if you want to get the most out of your K250 coffee maker.

If you are brewing a single cup, you will be pleased to know that the K250 can produce a cup in under a minute. If you are brewing a whole carafe, then this will only take a couple of minutes. This makes it one of the fastest coffee makers on the market.


  • Works with both K-Cup and K-Carafe pods. This makes it a versatile machine.
  • Easy to control using the touchscreen
  • Available in a huge array of different colors


  • The water reservoir is a little bit small
  • No temperature regulator
  • You have to purchase the carafe separately

Keurig K155 Office Coffe Machine

We are going to wrap up this list by talking about the K155. Unlike the other products on this list, this one hasn’t been designed to be used ‘at at home’. Instead, it is built for almost constant use in an office environment. Here are the features:

  • Full-color touchscreen interface
  • 90-oz water reservoir
  • Brews 4, 6, 8, and 10oz cup sizes
  • Adjustable brew temperature
  • Brews coffee in under a minute

Since this machine has been designed for use in an office environment, Keurig has designed it to be used almost constantly. After all, most office workers are big coffee drinkers. This means that the price is slightly higher than other coffee makers, but it is much more solidly built.

To stop a queue forming among office workers, you will be pleased to know that this machine brews coffee in under one minute. It is dead simple to produce a cup of coffee too. Everything is done from the full-color touchscreen, and often it will take no more than one or two taps to get that water flowing. 

You have a bit of control over your brew. Although, unlike other Keurig machines, you do not have the ‘strength boost’ button. Instead, you will control the strength based on your cup size. Thankfully, you can change up the water temperature (5 temperatures)

Another major benefit of the K155 for the office environment is that it has been designed to be easy to clean. All Keurigs are easy to clean, but this seems a bit better than others. It essentially wipes clean, with a bit of descaling required on occasion.


  • Well-built for heavy use
  • Simple to use
  • The largest touchscreen of all Keurig models
  • Temperature regulator


  • No strength control
  • Does not support 12oz brews
  • Can be a bit expensive for ‘home use’.

10 Tips Every Keurig Owner Should Know

Frequently Asked Questions

Keurig coffee maker

About Keurig

The brand has been around since 1992, but it is only since 1998 that it has been producing the product that they are most well known for.

It is one of the biggest innovators in the world of single-serve machines. Their system is known as the ‘K-System,’ with the K-Cups being the ones you are most likely to be using. The K-Cup is a pod that you put into the Keurig. The Keurig will then read the information from a barcode on the pod, and then it will produce a brilliant tasting cup of coffee. While there are many companies now using this technology, Keurig was one of the originals.

Since this company is such a significant force in coffee machines, it probably makes sense that their products are regarded as some of the best around. As we go through some great Keurig coffee makers in a short while, you will see how their product range is so different while ensuring that all of their products are a step above the competition. 

Why Choose a Keurig Coffee Maker?

If you love your hot beverages, but you do not want to go through the rigmarole of making the most complicated drinks, then Keurig is perfect for you. This company has one of the largest selections of pods in the world. If you can imagine a hot drink, there is probably a pod that you can use. This is perhaps the main reason why we would choose Keurig. We love our hot drinks, and Keurig makes it simple to produce them.

If this wasn’t enough, it is one of only a few companies that allows you to use your filter coffee in the machine. Yes. You will still need to purchase a reusable coffee filter from Keurig, but it isn’t expensive. It adds a whole new functionality to the machine too. Your Keurig will be both a single-serving pod coffee maker and a filter coffee maker rolled into one. Although, do bear in mind that not all of the products in the Keurig range will support this feature.

Keurig looks brilliant, and its designs are nice and sleek. This ensures that their coffee makers can fit into most kitchens with ease. Nearly all of their products are available in multiple colors too, which will make it a little bit easier for you to find a coffee maker that fits your personality.

You can’t deny that Keurig is ‘rich on the feature front too. As you go through the reviews on this page, you will start to feel for the features that their coffee features offer. You will also very quickly realize that there are no other coffee maker companies out there offering such an eclectic mix of product features across their range. We seriously doubt anybody will come close either. Keurig pours a lot of money into their research and development.

Their machines are well-built. People have had very few complaints about the machines. When you buy one of these, you can be optimistic that it will last you for years. Since this company will disappear any time soon, you can also be sure that somebody out there will have your back if you run into any issues.

How to Use Keurig Coffee Makers?

To tie a little bit into the reasons as to why you should be buying a Keurig coffee maker, we want to run you through, step-by-step, just how simple it is to use a Keurig machine. Hopefully, this will open up your eyes to why you need one of these machines if you love your coffee.

Keurig uses a system of pods known as K-Cup. There are other pods they offer, but they all function in the same way as the K-Cup.

Each K-Cup will have a different style of coffee in it. Some, for example, will be based around the flavor of Dunkin’ Donuts coffees, others maybe tea, and others may be ‘top of the line coffee. One of the true joys of owning a Keurig is finding hot beverages that you will enjoy. There are hundreds of them to choose from.

Once you have the K-Cup pods in your hands, you will notice a barcode on them. When you put the pod into the machine, it will read this barcode. The machine will then know the correct temperature to brew the coffee and the amount of water added. This means the perfect tasting cup of coffee with the minimum amount of effort.

Most of their machines require you to do nothing more than insert the Keurig K-Cup, hit a button to determine the cup size, and then wait for a minute or two.

It is no wonder so many people want to buy a Keurig. The whole process of making a coffee that tastes amazingly good couldn’t possibly be more straightforward than what Keurig offers.

How We Choose the Best Keurig

There are dozens of products in the coffee maker range. As a result, it was quite a challenge to narrow down a list of ten of the best of them. We believe that almost every coffee maker in the Keurig range deserves a place on a list like this. The problem is that we simply do not have the space for that sort of thing.

Let us run you through how we went about choosing the products on this list.

Newness of Models

Nearly every Keurig pod coffee maker we have included on this list is one of their current models. This is because they are often offering the best features. In our opinion, the design of the newer machines tends to be a little bit better too. That isn’t to say that older Keurig machines are ugly. They aren’t. They just do not look as sleek.

Because these are newer models, you will discover it a bit easier to get them. Yes. Most accessories from Keurig are ‘future compatible’, but our product selection ensures that if you buy accessories that launch in the future, they will probably be compatible with your brand-new Keurig.

A machine for everybody

One of our aims for this list of the best coffee makers from Keurig was to showcase their range. As you go through the ten products that we have selected, you will notice that each brings something slightly different to the table. Some are portable. Some are for big coffee drinkers, and others are for those that want complete control over their brew.

We hope that our approach means that you are far more likely to discover a perfect coffee maker for your needs.


Finally, we have selected these products based on the features that they boast.

One of the beautiful things about buying a Keurig is that you are getting so much more than a simple single-serve coffee maker. You are getting a versatile product. You have a lot of customization to your brew. This ensures that you get the drink that you want.

Well, for the most part. We have selected machines that offer the most features in them. Some of the machines we discuss have certain features, but they excel in other things, so we do not see this as a significant issue.

Can you use non-Keurig pods in your Keurig?

Keurig pods are known for their high quality. If they have been designed for use in their machines, you can. However, it is not recommended. If you opt for a cheaper pod brand, you may not get the wonderful flavor you have come to expect. There is also a strong chance the coffee may not brew properly.

Can you adjust the temperature?

It depends on the model. The cheaper the machines will have no temperature adjustment. Instead, the coffee machine will ‘read’ the recommended temperature from the barcode of the coffee pod you insert into the machine.

How long is the warranty?

Your warranty will last 1-year from the date of purchase. If any defects in quality come to light in this time frame, then your Keurig will be replaced or repaired by the company.

How often should you descale?

Every 6-months. If you use your Keurig multiple times per day or live in an area with ‘hard water, you may wish to descale every 2-3-months. You should make sure that you use Keurig descaling tablets for the most efficient clean.

Does Keurig taste the same as standard filter coffee?

We would argue that it tastes a lot better than your standard filter. This is because Keurig ‘knows’ the correct way to brew your cup of coffee. This means that you can enjoy a cup that has been brewed to perfection. If you brewed normal filter coffee with another machine, those machines would never offer you the same level of control.

How To Use A Keurig?

To install and use a Keurig, first plug in the machine and turn the power on. Open the lid on top of the machine and pour water into the reservoir. Then the machine will heat the water.

Choose your favorite coffee, hot chocolate, or tea, all available in K-cups, but do not lift the foil. Place the K-cup into the front slot of the machine and close the coffee chamber. Afterward, place a coffee mug on the tray. Some units will start once you choose the mug-size button, others once you press down the “brew” button.

Finally, once the coffee is ready, remove the K-cup.

How To Clean Keurig 2.0?

First, unplug the machine. Then remove the tray and the water tank. Clean them with a mild detergent and thoroughly rinse.

To clean the diffuser and the K-cup holder, remove them, then separate the housing and holder of the K-cup. Using a paper clip to pull out grounds and debris from the exit needle, you can clean them properly.

Wash the holder, the housing, and the diffuser with water, to eliminate coffee grounds or oils.

Clean the unit, the exit needle, and the handle with a paper towel, and use a damp cloth to wipe the rest.

After reassembling the machine, pour water into the tank and select the rinse cycle.

Can You Put Milk In A Keurig?

If you put milk in the reservoir, you’ll wind up with spoiled milk retained in the reservoir.

It is not indicated to put milk in the water tank of a Keurig. The milk will spoil and will ruin the filters of the machine. You will end up with a clogged-up brewer and filters.

How Long Does Keurigs Last?

The longevity of Keurig brewers mostly depends on maintenance and how often it is used. This is why the life span can vary from a few years to decades.

Who Owns Keurig?

Keurig, the brewing system for domestic and commercial use, merged with the Dr. Pepper Group in 2018. Now, Keurig Dr. Pepper is the third major brewing company in North America. Its headquarters are in Massachusetts, and the main products are K-cup pods, other types of pods, and the machines that brew these beverages.

How To Drain A Keurig 2.0 Without Disassembly?

The trick is to empty the hot water reservoir, not just the cold water one.

  • 1. Unplug the machine, so that the hot water cools down and you can avoid an accident.
  • 2. Remove the cold water reservoir and spill the water.
  • 3. Use a screwdriver to turn the screw of the rear access panel and then open it. Once you remove the panel, you will notice a plug and a tube. Pull the tube that you see from the clip holder.
  • 4. Pull the plug, and then drain the water remaining.
  • 5. Afterward, push the plug back, and place the tube back.
  • 6. Close the access panel with the screw.

This is the proper way to empty your Keurig.

Even though the machine does not have the technology to brew the authentic espresso, there are some steps to follow to make an espresso with your Keurig:

How To Make Espresso With Keurig?

– Firstly, allow the water to heat up to 200F degrees. This temperature is preferred for the flavor delivered.

– Then, use 1-2 tablespoons of beans for six ounces of water. Simply pour that it the prefilter.

– Finally, after the brewing process, put the prefilter in the jug, and set the timer for about 25 seconds.

These simple steps will help you make an espresso with your Keurig machine.

What Does Descale Mean On A Keurig Coffee Maker?

This is a procedure through which you remove scale, calcium deposits that add up in time in your coffee maker. The residues are non-toxic, but they will affect the taste of coffee and the brewer’s efficiency.

Can I Use Vinegar To Descale Keurig?

It is recommended to descale your machine every 3 to 6 months, for proper maintenance. You can use vinegar to do it.

Simply pour 10 ounces (0.3 liters) of vinegar into the reservoir. Then, start a brew cycle without adding a K-cup. Place a cup for the liquid discharged.

Repeat the process once more.

Finally, do this again, but with 10 ounces of water, to rinse the vinegar.
