Keurig B31 Personal Single Serve Coffee Maker w/ 12 K-Cups
Would Not Buy Again
I thought it would be good - but if you use any of the "pods" it is very very strong - and if the get the cafe cups to you can use your own coffee in it - when finished brewing it has a silk film in the bottom of the cup - I should have just bought a four cup any brand instead of this. I have used my son's big one and it was okay - but this one is nothing like it in the taste of coffee etc.... I am very disappointed !! I have bought many things from QVC and this is the first time I have been disappointed.
I'm not quite sure what all the hype is over the Keurig. This model doesn't allow you to set strengh and if you use cream in your coffee it winds up cool, not hot as advertised. I've priced the prepackaged coffees and found them out of my budget so I purchased the insert so you can use your own coffee. The coffee is weak at best so I have to run it twice filling it to 6 ozs. each time adding fresh coffee to get it to taste like my old coffee maker. Don't put in more than 10 ozs., it won't handle it. After it finishes brewing the unit continues to drip. I would have sent it back if I had used it sooner. I'm going back to my old coffee maker. This purchase was a waste of money.
I own larger Keurig machine. I purchased this one for my daughter for her birthday. Her kitchen is smaller in size and this one is absolutely perfect! She is in Keurig heaven!
ALWAYS A PERFECT CUP OF COFFEE
I AM TRULY ENJOYING MY KEURIG COFFEE MACHINE." I ALREADY HAD A KEURIG THAT MY HUSBAND GAVE ME AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT SEVERAL YEARS AGO. IT WAS FANTASTIC! I WAS REALLY ELATED WHEN I SAW THAT QVC WAS OFFERING THIS MACHINE AT SUCH A LOW PRICE. I PRICED THEM IN LOCAL STORES AND THEY WERE GOING FOR OVER $100. I REALLY GOT A FANTASTIC BUY.
YOU CAN ALWAYS EXPECT; AND COUNT ON A PERFECT CUP OF COFFEE. I LOOK FORWARD TO IT, BEING THAT I ONLY DRINK ONE CUP PER DAY. EVEN THE TEAS ARE GREAT!!!! "TRY THEM I PROMISE YOU, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
I have been using the same machine at work for over 6 months and finally decided to buy when i saw this great deal but i do have to say i was extremely disappointed by the variety pack of coffees. There are 12 in a box but 6 are bold or strong brews which I happen to hate. I even brought one of the pods to work for a friend who drinks espresso and Cuban coffee and she said it was too strong for her but since that was not the main reason i bought this set I can live with only getting 6 usable pods.
From using the machine at work i have learned that you need to baby the machine and by that i mean be sure how much water you are using and be sure to add the water THEN add the pod and wait for all the water to drain before pressing the brew button. We have also learned to be careful about cleaning it out on a regular basis because there can still be issues with it.
We have had it in the offive for at least a year now and is used by 3 people 5 days a week and the worst that has happened is that there were little hickups along the way but the work machine was purchased in a store so the quailty might be different too.
Very Happy with purchase.
We love the keurig B31 , it is nice to be able to make just one cup of coffee at a time. Each cup is hotter than our Mr. Coffee. Would highly recommend the purchase to others.
Keurig personal coffee maker
I don't know if I'm doing it right or not, but mine is not working. I pour in water using the cup that I want my coffee in, and the blue light flashes on and off for a few seconds, then the whole machine cuts off. Am I not using enough water? It won't heat, won't stay on long enough. It's too late to send it back, so I'm going to keep playing with it and maybe I can get it to work.--Or I'll just drink cold coffee.
Keurig B31 cord for to short for where I needed it to go. Coffee maker need to also be a little tall for cups I have or use. not sure if I would recommend.
Worked for only a month
When it worked, I have to say the Keurig made great coffee. The bad news is it only worked for a month. Just like the other reviewers reported, my would start to work and then shut itself off. I followed all the trouble shooting guides, but to no avail..... no coffee. Keurig needs to go back to the drawing board!!!
PERFECT ONE CUP!
This is my second Keurig Single Serve Coffee Maker from QVC. My first one I used every day for two years. I could have purchased a Keurig from Walmart but QVC had the better deal. I usually only have one cup in the morning and before I purchased this I hated to throw out the rest of the pot. And those times I did have a second cup-YUK! Burnt coffee taste. This is just right. There are a zillion coffee, tea, etc. brands out there with K cups so your flavor choices are endless. Before I reordered this my friends said: "don't spend the money-just get a coffee press". Well, the coffee flavor was ok but it was not real hot and you always get some grounds in your cup. Not so with the Keurig! Also works great for hot or cold tea and hot chocolate. And if you have more hot beverage drinkers in your home I would recommend the larger size.
Great for the handicapped
My husband has a rare form of MS and hes 24 and in a wheelchair! He loves coffee he has the hardest time making it without my help he shakes uncontrollably at times , I recently bought this for him(hes been asking for one forever we just couldn't afford it) I wish I had bought this sooner! He can do this one all by himself, the coffee is already measured out and in the little K cup so he cant spill it, he pours the water in the top pops the k cup in and pushes brew and goes about his business and then comes back to get it. Only thing is I wish the place where you put your cup was a little taller, regular cups fit fine and larger cups do as well when you pull out the little water catcher, but its not quite tall enough to put a cup with a lid under it. Overall he loves it and the kids love the hot chocolate!!!
two thumbs up from us
Love the Keurig coffee maker!. It's NOT all that hard to find a less than huge coffee mug and get 9 ounces of enjoyment. How about pouring your water in from a measuring cup to get the exact amount each time?? What bunch of kill joys always find something wrong with a simple little coffee maker? We think it is great. Enjoy that morning coffee that is ready in an easy couple minutes. Yum.
