Overall Impression of the Keurig K575
In our opinion the Keurig K575 is perfect for anyone who wants a decent cup of coffee that is easy to make and appreciates having plenty of options. If setup and run correctly the speed at which this device works is perfect for anyone with a larger family or those who regularly entertains. There is no messing around in between just select your K-Cup insert it and then press the button. If the water is already heated then you will have each cup in 1 minute or less.
For those Keurig loyalists you will be in heaven since the K575 comes with a huge 80 oz water reservoir and allows you now to adjust the water temperature. Lots of previous complaints about water temperature should go away now since you now have the option to choose for yourself. A word of caution though, with options means you may have to experiment a little to find which options you like best. For instance you may have to try several different temperatures and brew strength combinations until you get your perfect cup of coffee. So if you go in with an open mind and are willing to be a little patient then I think you will be rewarded with a good cup of joe.
On the other hand this may not be the coffee machine for you primarily for three reasons.
First if you have limited counter space this machine might be a tad big for your space. Don’t get us wrong this machine isn’t some huge hulking machine. Although it is larger then most previous models due to Keurig making a larger water reservoir and larger screen.
Secondly, this machine might not be for you if you have a lot of old or use primarily 3rd party K-Cups or capsules. This unit does have a optical scanner or sensor so some K-Cups may not work. Although most consumers say they don’t have any issues while using different types of K-Cups you never know if favorite non-approved K-Cup will work unless you do some deep research beforehand.
Lastly the final reason comes down to price. The new Keurig 2.0 machines arer a little more expensive then previous models. Usually when upgrades occur prices will increase slightly and this Keurig device is no exception. If you feel you don’t need or want all the extra features we would suggest looking at a cheaper simpler model such as the Keurig K-Select.
