The Bottom Line

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 K145 OfficePRO Overview

Intended for office use, the UL Commercial listed K145 doesn't have a ton of additional features, like Strength Control or Temp Control.

Instead, it has a different take on functionality, leveraging a brew size selector knob.

The K145 does have a convenient Drain Brewer function, but it isn't compatible with the reusable My K-Cup.

Intended for use in small offices (Keurig arbitrarily says less than 15 people), the 48 oz water reservoir will get the job done but will need to be refilled frequently.

Pros

  • UL Commercial listed
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Drain Brewer function is awesome and makes cleaning the internal tank easy
  • Brew size knob is sturdy and easy to use
  • Comes with K-Cup variety pack

Cons

  • Not compatible with reusable My K-Cup
  • Underwhelming 48 oz reservoir for an office model
  • Max 10 oz brew size
  • No Strength Control or Temp Control

Is the Keurig K145 OfficePRO for you?

Is Keurig K145 OfficePRO for you?

An uncomplicated, UL Commercial listed brewer, the K145 is great for small office environments if you want to offer K-Cup convenience without breaking the bank on a big-time commercial model.

If you're looking for a commercial brewer with a larger reservoir, we wouldn't blame you. The K145s 48 oz tank is a little underwhelming. Instead, check out the K1500. It's Keurig's newest base commercial model that offers a ton of upgrades over the K145:

  • Max 12 oz brew size
  • Massive 96 oz reservoir
  • Compatible with direct water line plumbing (no refilling!)
  • Strength Control for stronger cups (great with the 12 oz brew setting)

Just about the only thing the K1500 doesn't have, which you'll find in the K145, is the Drain Brewer function.

With 10 different brew sizes up to 30 oz, a sizable 70 oz reservoir, and an intuitive color touch display, K400 series brewers made K-Cup coffee easy. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo Plus instead.

The Keurig K-Cafe, replacing the discontinued Rivo, brews K-Cup coffee, espresso, and even milk-based lattes and cappuccinos thanks to the integrated frother, all with the push of a single button (OK, two buttons).
