Here's my thoughts on K-Select.
To me it seems like a classic series with its manual buttons and non-existent customization with few added plus series features. A hybrid of Classic and Plus, if you will.
Ultimately, it serves its purpose of brewing a consistent cup of coffee each time, fast but I would definitely not consider this a machine for the "coffee enthusiast."
Like most things in the world, the following pros and cons is my personal opinion and will vary person to person depending on how much they "like" coffee and if they're after a cup of "specialty" coffee or content with a cup of "starbucks" coffee.
- Easy and painless to use
- Quick, just under a minute, cup of coffee
- Consistent cup of coffee each time. Never burnt, bitter taste. Cannot say if it under brews or not.
- "Strong Brew" is a nice added feature especially when brewing a larger size
- Energy Saver : Auto Shut Off (which classic should already have auto shut off but plus has energy saver "&" auto shut off so I was always unsure what the difference exactly was/is)
- Large reservoir : 52oz. Makes enough cups to get you through the day unless you drink a gallon each day
- Additional cup size than the classic : 12oz
- Hot cocoa and other non-coffee items taste great when brewed for 6-8oz but watered down at 10-12oz (all Keurig)
- Minor but a big deal for us...no fingerprints, yes!
- No customization (I'm sure a coffee enthusiast can go onto explain how important it is for water to be at a certain temperature, what type of filter, what type of bean, how it's stored, how it's ground, yada yada...)
- REALLY SHORT cord
- Splashes everywhere (this is with every Keurig so if you're not too fond of brown spots everywhere...not for you)
- Drip tray is still not the greatest quality and comes off even when lifting cup
- Reservoir max line is literally the edge of the container so water spills if you removed the reservoir and directly filling the reservoir. You can only fill to max when reservoir is attached to the unit using a cup or you have the hands of a surgeon
- Reservoir lid is still just a loose lid and not secure
- Not sure if it works with non Keurig licensed pods or any other type of pods like the Classic Series
Priced at $129.99, I would say it's a better buy than a classic but if customization is what you're looking for, I would recommend paying a little more for their Plus series.
The new Keurig K-Select classic coffee maker is slightly different than our 5y/o Keurig model, but the differences are all improvements. Our biggest problem with the older version? These Keurigs won't break even when you're itching for a new one. Sure, we de-scaled it . . once . . . of our region’s infamous calcium deposits, but it’s just keeps on working. Older models are going to be 21st century hand-me-downs.
The new Keurig is a bit slimmed down and shorter. It has added a carbon filter which should last 2 or more months. While I'm not thrilled with another consumable, I'm happy about the carbon filter. The size selection switches are all illuminated, are laid out logically, and they've added a travel mug size. This model has no LCD screen, but doesn’t need one. Everything else is the same. Soak, rinse (thoroughly) and load in the filter. Fill the water reservoir. Power on. Open the pod holder and place one of the dozens (hundreds?) of coffee/tea/cocoa pods into place before you close the cover. Select size. Wait about 90 or so seconds and you're ready. And you just saved some cash and a trip to the neighborhood coffee vendor. The pod coffee maker is a genuine convenience. Just be sure to order enough pods, ‘cause you’re gonna add home-made coffee to your routine.
What can you say about a Keurig?
That is the best coffee maker? That the servings are consistent and flavorful? That the maker is well made and lasts a reasonable amount of time? That is mostly maintenance free? (mostly)
The K-Select lacks all the whistles and fancy stuff that Keurig's most expensive version has, but in its simplicity lies its genius; it works consistently, without a hassle, over and over, many times a day, for many days.
After all, life's most rewarding experiences come from the simplest things; a hug from your kids, a message from a loved one, the sun up in the morning (if you think that is simple), your car taking you to work...
A warm cup of coffee, just as you expect it, over and over, every time brewed to perfection, only a Keurig!
Thank you so much for reviewing your K-Select and for your kind words. Happy Brewing!

Excellent addition to the Keurig line
This new model of Keurig brewer is a step up over the K55 with having the addition of a 12oz and “Strong Brew” settings. This has an easily removed 52oz water tank that has the usual Keurig carbon filter in it. The outside of the unit on our unit is flat black, except for the operating handle which is a flat gray color, and the only glossy item is the water tank. The removable spill tray easily handles a tall cup or travel mug.
From a cold start “after priming and setting up” it doesn’t take long from turning on and being ready to brew the first cup. This one is very simple to use, just select one of the 4 sizes 6,8,10 or 12oz and if you want to use the “Strong” option just press it before selecting the size.
The unit came with a sample pack of Keurig pods and it had no problem brewing any of those, the strong option did make the coffee pretty strong “plenty strong for me”.
I did have a couple questions about the operation of the unit and called customer support, after a couple of usual voice prompts a representative answered the phone immediately and was very polite, helpful and answered all my questions. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of customer support and their helpfulness which isn’t the case with a lot of companies anymore.
This looks like it will be another great addition to the Keurig line, very simple to use for those who don’t like going through menus and reading displays.
I never thought I would give up perking my coffee the old fashion way until I used someone's Keurig. I had to get one. Beyond HOT coffee in seconds, perfect taste every time and so fast & easy. It is a perfect reason to get up every morning!
We could not be happier you hear you've been able to upgrade your coffee routine! Thank you for taking the time to leave a fantastic review. Happy brewing!

Quality Coffee Brewed Quickly
The Keurig K-Select combines sleekness with simplicity. Not only does it look great in our kitchen, but also does not take up much space. Other design aspects that I have liked include: easy to lift handle when inserting/removing pods, easily removable water reservoir, accommodating mugs up to 7.4 inches high, and simplistic buttons. I certainly feel that the K-Select was designed with the target user in mind. Ease of use and appearance are important to me for kitchen appliances of any size, and Keurig delivers on both factors with the K-Select.
One minute is all you need to brew a cup of coffee. The K-Select is very efficient, and I love that I can get my coffee fix, even when I am in a hurry. Taking a travel mug of coffee with me to work has been a daily task for several years, but now I am not even sure I would consider it a task because it is so quick and easy. In addition to efficiency, this brewer is effective. A quality cup of coffee is brewed every single time, and that is the case for any of the four brew sizes you choose as well as the strong brew feature. Throughout my extensive use, I have never been disappointed.
If I had to summarize my thoughts on the Keurig K-Select, I would say it is the most convenient and effective coffee brewer I have ever used. I love the simple and speedy coffee brewing process that the K-Select provides. Whether you are a coffee connoisseur or just someone looking for a quick energy boost, you will not be disappointed with the Keurig K-Select.
We're so happy to hear you are loving the design of your K-Select coffee maker! Thanks for the kind words!

Makes a great cup of coffee
Over the past few years, I’ve become a fan of coffee. The thing that I don’t really like is all the preparation that goes into making a single cup. This is why I really like single serve coffee pots like the Keurig K-Select. For a few years, I had the huge Keurig system, but it started giving out on us and wasn’t making coffee correctly. When it was time to swap it out, we decided on this smaller version. It’s much more compact and still makes a wonderful cup of coffee. I really like that there are more options for coffee cup sizes. On the previous version I had there was small, medium, and large. Now there is Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large.
Operation is very simple. You fill the reservoir up with water (I recommend bottled water as tap water might have too many minerals that will clog up the maker over time) and then select your K-Cup. One you place the K-Cup in the receptacle, you lock it into place and select your cup size. Then, you sit back and watch the coffee pot do the work. One thing that was a big difference between this model and the previous model I had is the water filtration system. This K-Select system has a charcoal-based water filter, which is a great option because it ensures that you will be using the best possible water for your coffee. It’s very similar to having a Brita water filter. You have to replace the filter after so many uses and the preparation is similar in that you have to soak it in water before using it. It’s one extra step for setup, but it’s not a deal breaker to me.
The Keurig K-Select brews a cup of coffee fairly quickly. I’ve actually had a couple of generic brands of single serve coffee makers that are very slow to brew. The Keurig brews a cup of coffee within about 15 seconds once the water is heated. The K-Select is very convenient and really does make a great cup of coffee. I can recommend this to any coffee lover.
A:AnswerFunny that Keurig chose not to answer this question. It is an issue that has yet to be addressed by Keurig. Some people think it is the tank expanding as the water heats. It is a production flaw that should NOT be happening.
A:AnswerThanks for your question. The K-Select coffee maker has the ability to brew all K-cup pods including tea and hot cocoa. We always suggest running a water brew after brewing powdered beverages to prevent clogging for future brews. We hope this helps!
