Performance And Taste
Now this is were many of the coffee makers fail. If everything looks good and feels great but the end results doesn’t suits your tongue, there is no sense to buy that machine whatever the offer might be. Keurig K575’s coffee tastes similar to that of K475 machine as both are built with same technology and even somewhat the same tallboy dimensions. The only difference between K475 and K575 is the larger LCD display. 10 oz larger tank and hot water output in the latter, rest everything is same.
With the introduction of Keurig 2.0 technology in the older K550 model, the brand restricted machines to use the new pods only made by Green Mountain Coffee with the use of DRM technology. This also restricted the brands loyal customers from using the older reusable K cups and so, the customers were not happy. With all this, the sale of Keurig dropped to 23 percent which the brand soon realized. As a result, Keurig soon released the new range of brewers allowing the use of older K-cups including the Keurig K575.
The output of K575 is hats off. It always gives great tasting hot coffee year by year and that’s is why this brand became so famous. The quality of pods by the brand is award winning. They have started using environment friendly material for K cups which are bio-degradable and none other brands quality matches them. One can also use the Reusable cups for no waste and will also save you a lot of money.
The Good And The Bad
- Easy to use
- Large 80 oz water tank
- Easy to brew
- Multiple temperature settings
- Heats up quickly
- Can Dispense Hot Water
- Big 2.8″ touch screen
- Takes up counter space
- Short Power Cord
- Costs a little extra for just few things
After reviewing the Keurig K575, what we thought is that though this is a great machine but one can save some cost by buying the K475 as both offer same set of features. The only major difference is the larger water tank, hot water out and the larger LCD. If Keurig K475 LCD seems smaller to you, or you need hot water function to prepare soups or noodles then go ahead with the K575. Also with a larger water tank, the frequency for refilling water again and again reduces. These both are also included in our recommended Keurig coffee makers containing reviews of the most successful machines by the brand.
Don’t forget to include a 2-year protection plan with your coffee maker as it will save you from any sort of disappointment which sometimes happen coincidentally with anyone. It’s better to be safe at your side.
