Fill N Save Elite Stainless Steel Reusable K-Cup Overview

A different take on reusable K-Cups, Fill N Save's version is 100% stainless steel.

Like many other reusable K-Cups, the Fill N Save Stainless Steel version is compatible with almost all Keurig models but won't work with Keurig 2.0 Plus brewers or the new K-Mini, K-Mini Plus, or K-Duo.

What makes stainless steel different than plastic?

  • Stainless steel is more durable
  • Stainless steel generally is more expensive

Aside from that, there's no tangible advantage to a stainless steel reusable K-Cup.

As for Fill N Save's reusable K-Cup design? There's plenty to talk about there.

While you get better durability with this stainless steel reusable K-Cup, you sacrifice both ease of use and coffee quality.

First, the K-Cup has to be placed in your machine in just the right position in order to work properly. Admittedly, this isn't a huge deal once you get the hang of it, but it also means this version isn't as intuitive and user-friendly, especially if it's being used as a shared accessory for an office break room or a large family.

Second, the lid dumps water in a little too quickly, resulting in a frustratingly high number of clogs. Clogged filter baskets mean watery messes, and no one wants that.

The Fill N Save reusable K-Cup is the best stainless steel model available (if that's what you're looking for) but it isn't as good as the many BPA-free plastic options above. And, ultimately, the stainless steel advantage on such a small, inexpensive accessory is negligible in our eyes.

Pros
  • Stainless steel construction is more durable than plastic
Cons
  • Not compatible with Plus Series brewers (K200, K250, K425, K475, K525, K575) or new Keurig K-Duo or K-Mini brewers
  • More expensive and only get 1 reusable K-Cup
  • Needs to be inserted in the correct position
  • Clogs easily

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
