Keurig K-Select Overview

The K-Select is the best combination of cost and feature-rich performance among Keurig's new line of brewers, making it our pick for the best bang-for-your-buck K-Cup brewer.

What makes the K-Select the Goldilocks of single-serve coffee makers?

  • It features the 12 oz brew size, Strength Control, and High Altitude settings not found on the K-Classic
  • It's priced much more affordably than the K-Elite

Of course, the K-Elite does have several upgraded features not found on the K-Select, such as a larger 75 oz reservoir, Temp Control, Iced Coffee, and Hot Water Only settings, but most people don't need those extras.

So why pay up for them?

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
  • Strength Control and High Altitude settings

Cons

  • Mediocre 52 oz water reservoir
  • Doesn't have a Temp Control setting
  • Doesn't come with a water filter kit

Is the Keurig K-Select for you?

The Keurig K-Select is well-positioned as the best bang-for-your-buck brewer because it comes with all of the most-used features, specifically the 12 oz brew size, Strength Control, and High Altitude settings.

Keurig K560

Keurig K560
Overall Rating: 88
The crown jewel of the Keurig 2.0 pod-scanning system, feature-rich K500 series brewers offer 11 brew sizes (up to 30 oz) and massive 80 oz reservoir. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo Plus instead.

Keurig K145 OfficePRO

Keurig K145 OfficePRO
Overall Rating: 84
Keurig's most basic office model, the UL Commercial listed K145 has an underwhelming 48 oz reservoir and max 10 oz brew size, but the Drain Brewer function is handy and its sturdy build makes it great for heavy use.

Keurig B150

Keurig B150
Overall Rating: 81
A sleek, customer-facing commercial brewer with a 90 oz reservoir and color touch LCD display, the B150 makes brewing simple for small and medium settings. Now-discontinued, check out the K150 or K150P instead.
