What Others Say
When we looked at the user reviews, we saw that 71% had great things to say about the coffee maker and left 4 or 5-star reviews. Of these reviews, people commented on how compact this device is. They like that it doesn’t take up a lot of valuable space on the counter top. For those who have limited counter space, this could be a great feature. Customers who purchased the bundle set for a family member shared that this was a terrific gift and the recipient absolutely loved it.
Customers feel this coffee maker is a great choice because it is easy to use, reliable, and it requires little to no clean up. One customer said that although this does not come with a reusable filter, you can use the Keurig My K-Cup reusable coffee filter (single) is compatible, which can be a nice thing to have if you have artisanal coffee you want to use that doesn’t come in a K-cup.
So what did the remaining 29% of customers who left 3-star or below reviews have to say? The most common complaint customers had was that the pump stopped working less than 4 or 5 months of using it, and it since the pump doesn’t work, it only makes a teaspoon’s worth amount of coffee.
Another complaint that is the coffee maker is so compact that users cannot place a normal sized 8 to 10 ounce coffee cup in the machine unless they remove the drip tray. Other customers have said that the coffee maker has a tendency to leak as it brews. Another customer said that their machine doesn’t heat the water, thus rendering the machine useless for making coffee.
A few customers have said that although they ordered the Keurig K15 Single Serve Coffee Maker, when they looked at the bottom of their device, it was actually the older K10 unit. Needless to say, they were upset that they received a newer version, just the newer packaging.
When you wake up in the morning, there’s nothing quite like a cup of fresh brewed coffee. The best part of a coffee machine is that you can fill it the night before with the water, the coffee grounds and place your cup under the spout.
In the morning, all you have to do is press the button and begin making your toast while your coffee is brewing. By the time your toast is done, your coffee should be finished and you can have a simple breakfast under five minutes. If you’re running late for work, this could be exactly what you need.
With the Keurig K15 Single Serve Coffee Maker, you can make up to 10 ounces of coffee—the perfect amount to give you that little boost of caffeine to get you going. Priced at just under $125 for the bundle set, you can make a delicious cup of Green Mountain or Donut Shop coffee in your travel mug and go about your day.
While there are 29% of customers who feel this device isn’t the best option and they had less than pleasant experiences with it, we feel that the positive endorsement from the other 71% of customers is enough to recommend this coffee maker, especially if you’re looking for a gift for someone who is going away to school or even if you’re looking for a personal coffee maker for your small kitchen.
