PRIME! Manufacturer Defect- Needs Redesign!

Pikabo, Costco
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I'm giving the Keurig two stars but only for it's POTENTIAL to be a great product. I bought the first one May 30th and had an irreparable "prime" defect 14 days, yes, fourteen DAYS, later. Thank heaven for Costco! They exchanged the brewer without any hesitation. BUT I've had the second brewer for exactly 15 days and the "prime" error has started AGAIN! This is NOT a consumer use error or a failure of maintenance by the owners.
  • Pros: convenience/ coffee choices/ fresh cup each time.
  • Cons: chronic defect not being remedied by keurig

Plastic taste will not go away

fdbk, Costco
29 May 2014
  • Summary: I have had a Keurig brewer for 3 years. It finally wouldn't work at all, so I replaced it. The replacement is awful. There was a plastic taste that could not be removed DESPITE brewing 2 gals of white vinegar through. It still tastes like plastic and gives me a stomach ache after one sip. I called Keurig, and that is their only solution - to brew white vinegar through. I go online and this seems to be a pervasive problem. Why don't they figure this out?
  • Pros: convenience
  • Cons: cannot get a decent cup of coffee w plastic taste

chinsy

justlovecostco, Costco
10 April 2014
  • Summary: the unit, not too old doesn't pump water, the descale signal came on, I immediately tried to do what the instructions said to do, however it wouldn't let the vinegar go through to clean it...the water also only goes up to 192 degrees and coffee needs to be brewed at a higher temperature....I spent so much money on my unit...and it was a waste of money-trying another brand now...too bad as the rest of the unit is perfect.
  • Pros: convenient and does not burn coffee
  • Cons: the unit does not last long so the expense

Great with K-cups, Bad with grind-your-own

RealEstateKahuna, Costco
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this because of the bad-ish reviews on the Cuisinart brewers. I had a Cuisinart for 7 years before it died. I've been using this Keurig for 4 months now, and I wish I'd taken a chance on the Cuisinart. The Keurig works perfectly as advertised with K-cups and the coffee tastes great. But I also like to grind my own premium coffees from time to time like Kona, Blue Mountain, etc.
  • Pros: fast convenient
  • Cons: watery coffee with reusable filter

Love this Keurig, however... PRIME, PRIME, PRIME

Dromesburg, Costco
31 January 2014
  • Summary: Really love this product, however it is difficult to really recommend this product if after every cup you get the message to PRIME.. I've even rewashed/rinsed things and literally have used this about 25 times for a single cup.
  • Pros: great variety/selection of beverages
  • Cons: having a issue less than 30 some days after i buy the kcups are a little more expensive than needed

Buy ONLY from Costco

Nunyabiz, Costco
21 January 2014
  • Summary: I would only recommend buying this particular unit if you buy it from Costco, because like most are saying here this Keurig is only good for at best 1 year. I bought one for my mother about 5 years ago then shortly thereafter bought one for us. Between the two I was taking them back on average probably every 90 days, one might last 6-7 months, the other just 30 days and so on. I think we had ONE of these that may have lasted 1 full year.
  • Pros: convenience cant beat it perfectly good cup of coffee
  • Cons: price of coffee poor quality of machine

"Prime" is not the word you want to see!!

cruzer, Costco
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Well, I should have listened to the reviews. We got the dreaded Prime message after a short week of use. It is easily fixed by taking the water tank out and reseating it, but it has to be done after every cup, what a ridiculous hassle. Other family members have different models of Keurig, not the Platinum, and haven't had this issue. I called Keurig, and they readily admitted the problem, and told us they would send us a new one that was "tested" in the lab.
  • Pros: makes a good fast cup of coffee with no mess.
  • Cons: doesn't appear to be a reliable product.

Problem with brewer

Sarah F., Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Loved this brewer until one of the internal water transport tubes broke open and hot water poured out from the bottom of the machine. Lost my receipt so can't return it. Could have fixed it if I could have opened the unit up, but it is not manufactured so that it can be repaired.
