After owning a regular coffee maker for years and wasting more coffee than i care to talk about, I broke down and purchased this machine for my husband. This machine is impressive. I thought we might be sacrificing flavor for convenience but I was wrong. I have now gotten to taste coffees I would never had experienced if I had to buy an entire canister. The variety of coffees alone make this machine worth every penny and we no longer waste coffee. I have even found beverages for my kids to enjoy, my daughter loves the brew over ice lemonade. The best thing I can say about this is how much money in the long run we have saved. There are no longer half pots of coffee being dumped out. My husband and I can now have whatever flavor of coffee we wish and it still be nice and hot. Options are truly endless with one of these machines.

Brew Performance
Coffee lovers rejoice, there is so much freedom to be had in your morning coffee now.

Ease of Use
This machine is very easy to use even my 11 and 12 year old use it for juices in the morning.

Design
Very sturdy and looks great on the counter.

Durability
Holds up great mine i have had for about a year and it looks like it just came out of the box.

I am a coffee fan for sure, but I don't like to drink coffee from a traditional drip-style coffee maker. I usually use a metal Italian coffee pot that you heat on the stove and that makes the best, strongest coffee around. When I can't use that (because of time restraints in the morning), I use the Keurig at work instead. I must say that I don't like the flavor of the coffee as much from the Keurig versus my Italian coffee pot, but it still tastes pretty good. It is super easy to use, almost foolproof with no instructions needed. I even use it to heat water for tea bags because it has the heated water reservoir that is so quick and ready to go anytime. My only criticism, well, I guess I have two criticisms of this product. The first one is the waste that is created from all the little plastic cups and the foil on top. The plastic is not labeled for recycling and you would have to clean it out first anyway. Secondly, the K-cups are NOT cheap, not by a long shot. They are so darn expensive! Even on sale. I haven't done this yet, but I think it's more economical and environmentally responsible to buy a reusable filter and use your own coffee that is freshly ground. All in all, this is an ok product, ingenious, really, but such a wasteful product, too. I have a hard time justifying the use of it.

      Comments about Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System:

      I absolutely love my Keurig ! I use it everyday, multiple times a day . The Keurig only needs approximately one minute to prepare hot water, and about one minute in between cups if making multiple cups at a time . You can adjust heat settings and cup size settings to your need. One piece of advice I will leave is that if you want your machine to run quickly for a long time you must use 100% clean water... if not you will need to keep up some extra maintenance on cleaning . Cleaning the machine is not hard , it's actually pretty easy ! From an avid coffee drinker , in my opinion, every cup of coffee tasts better with the Keurig . You do NOT have to purchase K-cups with this Keurig , you can use what ever coffee you already use .

        Comments about Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System:

        I have had my Keurig for about 2 years already and it works amazing. I have not had one single problem with it. I love the fact that I am able to make my self any type of coffee, tea, or any other drink I would like with the click of one button. I also like the fact that they sell the adapters so that you do not have to necessarily buy the K-cups, so I am able to try many coffees with this machine that are not normally available for K-cups. I have also seen that this helps me a lot, saves me time when I am in a rush. I put the water in the container turn on and it heats the water very quickly and in less than a minute I have my coffee ready to go. I honestly have never had any problems with this machine, except once or twice, that I had coffee spilling from the top, but that was only because the K-cup was not inserted well. Other wise this machine is definitely the best out there!

          Coffee, for me, ranks right up there with oxygen. An absolutely packed schedule with Two kids, two pets, and a needy husband have leave me with a constant need for a pick me up. Early morning through evening I am constantly grabbing for a caffeine fix. Because I am the only coffee drinker in the house, this single serve machine is perfect for me. It only takes a minute to turn on, heat up, and put out a cup of joe. No more cold coffee, every cup is made fresh and I can have a different flavor in every cup. I love this machine and would buy it again but it has some minor cons. After awhile the coffee gets kind of a plastic-y taste and It is quite a process to clean with vinegar. The filter needs changed more often than recommended and the machine doesn't tell you when it needs changed. It can get pricey if you are drinking more than a cup or two at a time as well. I would buy this agin but would love to try the newer models- maybe on my next 'me splurge'! Good little machine especially if you are a cup or two a day drinker!

          This is so much faster than a standard coffee maker. I use it to make my on the go coffee in the morning and my cold coffee for at night. All the K Cups taste perfect! Worth every penny.

          This is more than just a coffee maker for me, it is a necessary part of my day. I love that I can chose my cup size, and that I can use a kcup or simply get a cup of hot water for tea or hot chocolate. It is easy to use and easy to fill with water. I get a great tasting cup of coffee every time.

          Comments about Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System:

          My husband bought this keurig for me for Christmas 2013. It is still going strong to this day (Sept. 2016)! I use this machine everyday, at least three times a day... sometimes as much as 6 times a day. I really enjoy the variety of coffee/tea/hot chocolate that can be made in this coffee maker.

          The ease of using this machine means that my six year old can make hot chocolate for himself and his little brother (of course, I do watch him and I have warned him of the pin that punctures the Kcup and also have instructed him to leave the cup for awhile so it cools down). It is so easy to use and, for me, the temperature that the coffee comes out is not scalding. I know everyone has different thresholds of comfort, but I have not experienced a burnt tongue after having a sip out of the mug, right away. Some Keurig models provide super hot/scalding coffee that you must wait to drink. This one has a very comfortable temperature for me.

          As for filling up the reservoir: You can just removed the reservoir easily from the side of the machine, or you can simply remove the top of the reservoir and pour water in the top while it is sitting in its place next to the machine. Lately I have just been removing the reservoir and taking it to our filtered water system to fill up with water, but I used to keep a water pitcher beside the Keurig, for easy access during a rushed morning.
