    REASON: I purchased the 'Keurig - Keurig K525 Single-Serve K-Cup Coffee Maker, Platinum - Platinum' for my girlfriends birthday. We both enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning but are always in a rush to get out the door for work or school. SETUP/USE: Setup was quick and easy. I do recommend reading the manual if you want to know everything this machine can do. My girlfriend and I worked together clicking on different functions learning what the Keurig was capable of but the manually clearly details everything. Once you make your first cup of coffee it becomes second nature. FUNCTIONS: The number one function we use is setting a time to brew. We can set the time for 6 AM in the morning and wake up to a fresh cup of coffee. The water heats up in about 20-30 seconds and begins dispensing immediately. We really enjoy the touch-screen on the machine and navigation is simple. You can choose the cup size accordingly and it makes dispensing easy. Water is held in a clear container on the side and needs to be refilled every few days depending on how much coffee you drink or what size you are dispensing but it's simple to remove, refill and install. You have some simple customizing you can do like changing the screen color or even the color of the light that shines in the water container. ACCESSORIES/CUPS: You can use the K-cups (single serve - 6, 8 or 10 ounce cup), K-mugs (travel sized mug 12, 14, or 16 ounces at full strength). and K-carafes (30 ounces of coffee) in this machine. If you choose to brew a K carafes then I recommend purchasing the 'Keurig - 2.0 Coffee Carafe' as it holds the right amount and fits perfectly under the dispenser. We also own a 'My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Pod', which allows us to use coffee grounds. There are a wide variety of flavors available and if you wait for BestBuy's Deal of the Day or have a BestBuy rewards account, you can get some nice discounts on the cups. BestBuy members automatically get 15% Off Regular-Priced Keurig K-Cups too. OVERALL: We love our 'Keurig - Keurig K525 Single-Serve K-Cup Coffee Maker, Platinum - Platinum" and use it daily. We highly recommend this purchase for any coffee lovers. It's simple to setup, use and really makes life convenient. The price is reasonable and I can't imagine going back to a standard coffee maker again.

    I had a K450 and it started only making a half a cup so I had to run it through twice and then 2 weeks later it stopped getting hot as well. It was still under the extended warranty so I took it back to exchange it. Come to find out they don't make that model anymore and it was less than 2 years old. So I got the next one up that Best Buy said was the upgrade/replacement. Fresh out of the box it sounds like the pump is struggling. It is a lot louder than the K450 was and makes a washing machine sound. It does hold more water and has more programmable features like being able to set your OZ. default for your cup. Of course since it was a more expensive model I had to pay the difference and Best Buy forces you to buy another warranty and even though I had several months left on the first one there was no prorating or carryover. Does it make coffee? Yes. Is it hot? So far. Is it the best coffee I ever had? Not hardly but it gets me through the morning. Is it worth almost 200.00? No. This is the fourth Keurig that I have had and each one of them have died and I upgraded to a higher one when I took the old one back so this one cost me about 60.00 but if you factor in the original cost of the first one and then the upgraded and warranty of the next one and the next one and this one I think this will be my last one. When it goes, And it will. Well before the extended warranty is up mind you. I will be getting something different. I have never had a Keurig make it to 2 years. A coffee maker should be good enough to make it at least 2 years. And for all the haters and fans. Yes. I properly cleaned and descaled the other ones following Keurig's instructions from their website. If you want a quick cup of OK coffee in the morning, there are way cheaper options out there. If you want a quick GOOD cup of coffee in the morning. There are other options out there for that as well.

    Didn't live up to expectations

    I bought this model after loving the way it looked online. It is gorgeous but a lot larger than I thought it would be. I was looking for a 1 or 2 cup product with the capability of also making a larger amount. Set it all up running water through the system several times and then the time area wouldn't work. Called Keurig and found out you had to have water in the resevoir to set it up. You can change the color of the wallpaper and it looked great. Next morning I came out and the time wasn't showing. Read through the manual and found nothing so called Keurig again. You HAVE to keep water in the reservoir ALL THE TIME for the time area to stay on. I told her I didn't drink a lot of coffee but wanted the capability to make more when family came and she said that if I didn't want water sitting in it that wasn't the machine for me. I said it sounded more like a design flaw than something I did or didn't like. I don't know many people that would just want water sitting there all the time. And what if you have harder water. She said they recommended that you use bottled water. After looking at it for a couple of more days I decided it wasn't worth it. In all honesty, I didn't even like the way the coffee tasted...had a plastic taste. And I tried both the Green Mountain K-Cup and the Refillable Cup with my own coffee. Best Buy was great taking it back. I just bought another Cuisinart coffee maker that can make 1-12 cups of coffee...without water sitting in it for days at a time!! I know it has it's flaws but I don't believe a single review that these "coffee baristas" claim Keurig makes as good a cup of coffee as their expensive coffee shops. Best coffee ever was with my old Corning Percolator!!

    Great versatility. iPhone-easy user interface. Fast brewing. Great machine for an office setting. Auto on/off make it even better. Water is hot and ready to brew when I get to the office, and I never have to worry about turning it off. Coffee is always fresh and hot, although admittedly much more expensive to purchase and to operate than traditionally brewed coffee systems. I have not purchased the Carafe, so have not tried that function of this machine yet, but probably will before too long. I'll update the review at that time if the system allows edits. Only complaints with the design are comparatively minor. 1) The drip catcher base really should attach more positively to the unit. As it is, it just slides into place, so it gets scooted around if it is bumped. 2) And this is more significant, The design of the water holding tank makes it quite difficult to fill without spillage. The entire top of the tank can be removed allowing a better pouring vantage, but then the lid has to be laid somewhere and the condensation on the inside of the lid drips onto whatever surface it is placed on. This might not be an issue in a kitchen, but in an office it is. Those are the only marks on an otherwise stellar machine.

    Avoid like the plague

    This was so disappointing. If my kid made a product this bad, they would be grounded for a year. I bought this to replace an older Keurig. I do not recommend, the new Keurig systems are horrible, this was the third system I have tried in the past three months (K55, 425s and this). They start including a self cleaning tool because they clog up so much. Any medal items they have replace with cheap plastic and the whole system seems flimsy. If you are wanting to try a Keurig system, wait until a new line comes out. There were great features on this machine. I am not a coffee drinker (My spouse is) and the coffee features work great, until it clogs up. It clogs up about every fourth cup. I called support a couple of times and they tell you to use the cleaning tool and run hot water. It takes about 18oz of hot water to clear the system out before restarting it, you have to do it after every fourth cup of coffee. I like using the hot water for tea and oatmeal, but you have to have at least 18 oz of water filtered first. This is a picture of the Keurig with 10 oz of water run through it. The old system was so much better. If I could go back in time and purchase two or three of those systems I would. If you have trying to buy a new Keurig. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

    Keurig Done Right

    I was skeptical at first about the 2.0 system because I've read a bunch of reviews that say that 2.0 won't work with other brands. Also, the Oops Screen was always showing up and ruining people's experience. I can tell you after owning this for about a month I LOVE this product! I can set my timer and put in a carafe with the carafe size brewing cup and I can several cups of coffee in the morning when I wake up. It is perfect for lazy Saturday mornings. I love the size selection for brewing the cups as big as 12oz down to little 4oz cups. The huge reservoir is great as well. I don't fill it as often as I did my old Keurig. One last note, I love the way you can select the perfect brew for your cup based on stronger or not. I like my coffee a little stronger while my wife is a little weaker. You can make those selections too. If you are thinking about buying this unit I can HIGHLY recommend getting it today.

    I've been a Keurig fan ever since they first came out. It's a company that takes care of their customers. This Keurig is my favorite one. I also bought the my kcup for this model and the stainless carafe and the Keurig coffee drawer. All of them are great products. The reservoir is the largest yet. It's very easy to set up. There are many cup sizes for the cup, mug and carafe. I like the fact that you can set it on STRONG and it really makes a difference in the strength of the coffee! The light in the reservoir can be made red, blue, green or white,at the same time the night light can be colored differently and the night light is on a timer you set yourself. But another great thing is the my kcup. You use the same one for cup and carafe. All you have to do is pull a little "trigger", for lack of a better word, down and drop the my kcup in and it's ready to go. When you take it out the "trigger" snaps back in place.It comes with two filters the handle and a needle cleaner too. Already had the carousel coffee holder. It's nice too.

    I always want coffee, but hate the hassle of having to brew it - especially when I need to leave quick for my classes. I do have a Nespresso machine as well, but prefer to use that on Lattes or Iced drinks, but was always missing just a simple brew. This solves it. One thing that was important to me was that I could use my own coffee in the re-usable pods - and the one that they sell in store worked! So not only can I brew quick kups, I can make my own kup when I'm not in a rush. I love the option of brewing 4 cups with one capsule for the carafes - which is useful when I have guests or need it to study and not need to keep brewing each one. The light and resevoir is great, and don't feel the hassle of getting water all the time. My only main concern is that these brew with plastic kups, and I'm not exactly sure what type of plastic they use - hopefully, safer ones. I'm use to my nespresso's metallic capsules. Other than that, I love this brewer machine, and its interface. What I do is that I leave my nespresso at my kitchen, but have this brewer ontop of my mini fridge in my room - so its the ultimate convenience as the milk and creamer is right under. I would recommend this brewer.
