LINK TO Keurig K75: http://amzn.to/1tIG8TK Hi Guys, today I’m reviewing the Keurig K75 Platinum. LINK to Insulated Mug fits under any K-Cup Pod Maker: https://amzn.to/2QPbUMp
It weighs about eleven pounds and is a large machine so it will take up some counter space. It has a one touch control panel and blue backlit lcd display.

There is a digital clock and it’s programmable so you can set a time for the Keurig to brew a cup of coffee. Before brewing, you can adjust the cup size. There are 5 different options. You can brew a 3.25 ounce, 5.25, 7.25, 9.25 or 11.25 ounce cup. The water temperature is adjustable from 187 to 192 degrees. It is preset at 192 degrees. Blue lit removable water tank holds 72 ounces. The K75 comes with a water filter. It’s up to you whether you want to use it or not. I just use filtered water when I’m brewing. There is a descale indicator on the control center and Keurig recommends descaling the brewer every 3 to 6 months. The drip tray is removable so you can fit a tall travel mug like this one. I like the size of this area because I can fit my enormous orange mug without any problems. On switch is in the back. Plastic is BPA free.
This unit came with 12 kcups. There are over 250 varieties of kcups. You can use reusable kcup coffee filters to brew any ground coffee to save yourself some money.
Easy to fill tank, lift up lid and fill. I’d recommend filling the tank instead of taking the tank out, filling it and putting it back in.
To brew a cup of coffee, turn the machine on and wait for the control center to show “ready to brew”. Place your mug on the drip tray plate. Lift the handle and place your k-cup in the holder. Lower the handle to close the lid and you’ll see the Brew button start to flash. The default brew size is 7.25 ounces. If you want to change the size of your brew, press the left button for a smaller size and the right button for a larger size. Then press the Brew button. The control center will display “brewing” and you’ll see the size of your brew. In about one minute, the coffee is ready. Lift the handle and discard the used k-cup. Before brewing the next cup, you may have to wait 15 seconds as the water heats up. Wait for the “ready to brew” on the control center.
Easy to clean. The drip tray and plate should be hand washed. The k-cup pack holder assembly can be put in the top rack of your dishwasher at a low temperature. I think it’s easier just to hand wash it. The water reservoir and lid should also be hand washed. Don’t dry the inside of the reservoir with a cloth because you don’t want any lint in here.
When the water level is low in the reservoir, “add water” will be displayed on the control center and the blue light in the tank will blink.
Strength of coffee may vary with the size of your cup. If you like very strong coffee, use darker roasts or extra bold k cups.Temperature of coffee. The variety of flavors is amazing. You can also make hot chocolate and tea, soup or oatmeal. No, it doesn’t magically brew soup – it gives you really hot water so you can add it to your dry noodle cup or instant oatmeal. Clean unit once a week – run hot water.
The Keurig is not environmentally friendly, you can hear more about that in my Keurig K10 mini review. However, the Keurig is the ultimate in convenience. You get instant brew, any flavor you’re in the mood for and no cleanup. It is also a very cool looking machine. If you are impatient and love convenience, the Keurig is for you. It’s great that you can brew the coffee right into a travel mug for convenience.
