Keurig K-Classic Overview

The Keurig K40, K45, K50, and K55 are all the same basic brewer and collectively are one of the most popular models Keurig has ever produced.

When someone thinks of Keurig brewers, they're thinking of these models.

The K-Classic is Keurig's updated take on their flagship machine.

It doesn't have Brew Strength or Temp Control functionality and the 48 oz water reservoir isn't the largest you'll find, but not everyone needs those extras.

If you want the typical, hassle-free Keurig experience you've grown to love, stick with the K-Classic.

Pros

  • Includes Keurig's upgraded system for richer coffee and quieter brewing
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Easiest, most-basic in-production Keurig brewer (if that's what you're looking for)

Cons

  • Mediocre 48 oz water reservoir
  • Max 10 oz brew size (most new Keurigs brew 12 oz)
  • Doesn't have Brew Strength or Temp Control settings
  • Doesn't come with a water filter kit

Is the Keurig K-Classic for you?

Is Keurig K-Classic for you?

The Keurig K-Classic the new-and-improved version of the iconic K45/K55 and is great if you're looking for an easy way to enjoy Keurig's convenience.

If you're looking for something more feature-rich, here are some alternatives:

  • K-Slim: 46 oz reservoir in a slim, 4.8" wide model with a 12 oz brew size but without Strength or Temp Control
  • K-Select: 52 oz reservoir with a 12 oz brew size and Strength Control
  • K-Elite: 75 oz reservoir with 5 brew sizes from 4-12 oz and both Strength and Temp Control
  • K-Duo: 60 oz reservoir with ability to brew 6-12 oz and full 60 oz carafes with Strength Control on the K-Duo Plus
  • K-Cafe: 60 oz reservoir with ability to brew 6-12 oz and lattes/cappuccinos with an integrated frothing system

If the K-Classic is more brewer than you need, you can also go more smaller with either the K-Compact (smallest brewer with a removable reservoir) or the K-Mini for truly space-efficient brewing.

The base model of the now-discontinued Keurig 2.0 pod-scanning system, K200 series brewers are an affordable option for those who want to brew multi-cup carafes, but we recommend the in-production K-Duo.

A revolutionary series from Keurig, the K-Vue introduced K-Vue pods for bigger, hotter coffees. Today, all Vue brewers are discontinued. For a versatile brewer with all the extras, check out the K-Elite.
