Coming next within this Keurig K575 review , I will walk you through daily use experience , my recommedation and what I like / dislike about this machine .
I have been using the brewer for two months now having gifted my previous one to one of my close friends who really loved the brewer. The machine comes with a Digital Rights Management system that I only later came across after trying couple of K-Cups on it to no avail. The DRM means that you can only use the brewer on licensed K-Cups.
This basically means that before you purchase the coffee maker, you have to make sure that the K-Cups you intend to use with it are official. The good news is that majority of the K-Cups out there are licensed with the inclusion of Starbucks, Folgers, Dunkin’Donuts amongst others.
Functionality wise, the machine is just excellent. The coffee maker heats up pretty quickly and brews very fast. The very nice LED touch screen provides a lot of options for me to choose from amongst them the brew strength, cup size, whether it is hot chocolate you want and the power button. If in case you lift the handle and close it without having put a K-Cup in there, the screen will provide the option for hat water. You will be required to hold onto the button until you get whatever you want. As per the functionality, then this brewer is exactly what you need.
The reservoir is voluminous and large, that means that much time is spent actually making the tea than the time spent filling the water reservoir. That means that the coffee tastes much better. Moreover Keurig K575 comes with a water filter that is held inside the tank to purify the water without any need to de-scale at any cost.
Another cool upgrade that has me on my toes is the K-carafe. It only requires me to slide my included carafe into the gap that the dip tray would usually go, pop in my carafe pack which is basically a larger version of the K-Cup and boom! I have got my family’s four cups of coffee brewed up in only two minutes. The downside however is that the brewer lacks the heating element to keep the pot warm once the coffee is brewed. However, this feature is excellent if you are brewing coffee for instant intake.
On durability, I must say that having used the coffee maker for two months, it does seem durable. It is more over very easily cleaned and not flimsy at all. It has got the materials that have made the previous Keurig models that have a record of durability.
Price wise, Keurig K575 comes at a great deal. It also comes with added sweet extras such as the extra water filter, the 48 K-Cups, the 4 K-carafes which makes the coffee maker a great buy.
Generally, I would say that Keurig K575 is a great buy for first time buyers of Keurig, it has got all the favorable features and is an excellent product for coffee lovers. But on the other hand, the upgrade is not necessary for those who already own the previous model of the Keurig coffee maker. It would count more if they waited until their coffee makers stop working.
The Keurig K575 is a well thought and built machine. With the official K-Cups, Vue packs and the large carafe packs.
Keurig K575 review : Our Verdict
For a first time buyer of Keurig products K575 is a great buy. For a person already using the product, it’s not worth the upgrade. It’s basically a nice machine with great options and a few restrictions. Remember that Many users are disappointed that they cannot use older K-Cups that they already own on the machine.
