Top Review Praises

These comments reflect the top praises found in the higher rated reviews posted by customers on: Google, Amazon, Walmart.

“The water compartment is also bigger and lighted! The lighting feature in the Keurig K-Elite Single Serve Coffee Maker water compartment made it easier to see the water level. No more second guessing or turning on a flashlight to see how much water you have.”

“Prior to purchasing this model I owned a Platinum Plus (in mocha) offered as a TSV at the time the 2.0 version was hitting the market. I loved it. The folks at Keurig said that the K-Elite is its replacement. I find this unit is an improvement in several ways. One is that cup size can be selected with the press of a button, as opposed to using the programming function. The k-cup holder doesn’t have the nooks and crannies of the older models and it is much easier to wipe clean of grounds. The strong coffee option is a huge bonus.”

“Really liking this Keurig Elite. Easy to set up and use. Makes great coffee, tea, cocoa. Strong brew option for those mornings when I need an extra boost. 75 ounce carafe is plenty big enough.”

Common Review Complaints

These comments reflect common complaints found in the lower rated reviews posted by customers on: Google, Amazon, Walmart.

“The K elite that we bought had 192° listed in the menu. We never got a cup hotter than 170°. At times the cup of coffee would only be 155°”

“It’s not a week after receiving the K-Elite it begins to spew water out when the unit is turned on.”

“LEAKS WATER-2 Keurigs of the model SAME PROBLEM! ”

“I used my Keurig Elite for a month and all of a sudden it turned on by itself and I woke up to an island full of water. “
