I love this little machine!! I loved my first one, especially for travel, but gave it to a young friend who wanted to try a Keurig. Bought one for our boat, and just received my new kitchen model in Platinum yesterday. I love how small the mini's are......I love that there are no water filters, descaling issues, or water sitting for 24 hrs between uses. These little coffeemaker is simplicity personified. I definitely recommend the Mini Brewer
Our first K55 was a gift. It never worked. Returned it for an exchange. That one didn't work either. Returned it for an exchange and this one lasted a little over a year. It quit brewing this week. Against our better judgement we bought another one 3 days ago and have brewed maybe 6 cups in it. Turned it on this morning and it doesn't work, so we will be on our way in a few minutes to return it and buy something different. Evidently, from reading the reviews, this product has some serious flaws. Too many reviews indicating it just stops working. Didn't read many reviews that said the product was long lasting. You would think there would be some design changes by now with all the unsatisfactory reviews. Guess not. I'm just glad this one quit after 3 days and not 6 months when I couldn't get my money back.
I've always enjoyed tea and coffee, but never have the time to make it. Now that I have the Keurig K55 Coffee Maker I can make fresh tea and coffee in just a couple quick minutes. I only wish the sizes were a little bigger.
