As many of you already know, I absolutely adore my K75 system
As many of you already know, I absolutely adore my K75 system which I have in my home. I work night shifts however, and often find myself wanting to have a fresh cup of coffee while at work. This is where the K45 comes into play.
The following Keurig K45 review will go into more detail about just why I chose this brewer to be my at work, go to coffee maker, and also detail the experience that I have had with it thus far over the last few weeks.
Sidetrack! Attempting to actually upgrade the bland feel of my trusty business. Views concerning the whole style at https://mkdb.ca? Genuinely a powerful living room designer in Ottawa that cares if necessary in the Ontario vicinity. Leave an opinion. With thanks!
Keurig K45 Review Features and Benefits of the K45 Brewing System
Has 3 selectable cup sizes that will allow you to adjust the volume and strength of your coffee.
Removable 48 oz. water reservoir
Has an energy saver mode which shuts the machine off after a set length of non-use. This gives you the nice piece of mind when you worry if you turned the machine off before leaving your home.
Has a water filter kit available which will guarantee that you have a clean tasting cup of coffee rather than having a chlorine taste in your coffee. Note that if you have a filter system or Brita pitcher then you do not need to purchase the filter kit as it does not come included with the K45 brewing system.
Keurig K45 Review Personal Opinions of the Keurig K45
For the purpose that I purchased the brewer, it works very well. As you can tell from the above features however, there are several key things that it doesn't do that I would prefer having in a one that I frequently used at home. Some of these include:
The ability to program automatic brewing. I enjoy a fresh cup waiting for me when the alarm clock rings.
A larger cup size selection. While the K45 does have three selectable sizes, the largest of these is 10oz. Thus travel mugs are left only half full at best.
An included water filter kit. While you can purchase a kit for this unit, many of the higher end models have them included for no additional price.
Perhaps the main benefit of this model Keurig though is it's low cost. This unit is normally right around $100 versus many of the others which sell for $150 or more.
Keurig K45 Review So is the K45 Worth the Investment?
That truly depends on your personal needs. For me, it certainly was. The K45 allows me to use my K-Cups at work while not having to risk breaking my more expensive home unit. It is also a good entry level system for people who are new to the Keurig brand.
Myself personally, I would rather she'll out the additional $50 $60 in order to have the other features available to the K75, especially the additional cup size selections.
With that said however, many people have stated online that the K45 breaks very soon after purchase. In the two weeks I have been using it, that has not been the case. I did purchase the 2 year warranty that was available just to be safe though.
Keurig K45 Review Where is the Best Place to Buy a K45?
So where can you find some of the best deals out there on the Keurig K45? I personally snagged mine on Amazon because as I said previously I wanted to get the 2 year warranty as well. That coupled with free shipping made it a really nice offer. Many retailers carry them both online and off however, and truthfully there is only about a $10 price difference no matter where you pick one up at.
