Keurig K-Select is a new addition to the Keurig family (added 2018). Like we’ve always known, Keurig are always quick on their feet when it comes to responding to their customers feedback. They offer the carafe option in Keurig 2.0 machines for anyone who wanted more than just a cup, made the machines compatible with refillable pods to avoid the DRM issues that customers didn’t like, and now, in K-Select machines, they added the biggest feature customers have requested in their single-serve machines, which is a new serving size.
Let’s have a look at the features of Keurig K-Select Coffee Maker:
- Single-serve Keurig brewer, compatible with all K-Cup pods including branded, non-branded and refillable pods.
- Brews multiple sizes: 6, 8, 10 and 12 oz.
- Strong Brew option for making your coffee taste bolder and stronger.
- Accommodates different cup sizes, including travel mugs up to 7″ tall.
- Button controls, with a dedicated button for each cup size, as well as Strong Brew.
- Brews fresh cup of coffee in under a minute.
- Removable large 52 oz water reservoir.
- Indicators for adding water and brewer maintenance.
- Available in three colors.
What Is New In Keurig K-Select?
This new model is most comparable to the Keurig K55 in looks and features. The K55 is now called K-Classic, so if you read the name, you know which model it refers to.
Additional Cup Size:
The biggest difference in the K-Select model is the fact that it can brew an additional cup size, which is 12 oz. K-Classic, as well as older models of single-serve brewers by Keurig, only brew up to 10 oz. Only Keurig 2.0 brewers were able to brew larger sizes. So now with the K-Select, you can get a single-serve K-Cup brewer that can brew 12 oz and accommodates travel mugs.
Keurig also updated the design of K-Select to make it more sleek and modern. Control buttons remain the same, to keep it simple and complicated to use. Need a cup? Just press on the size you want, and that’s that.
Design difference doesn’t stop at looks though. Keurig has also changed the material finish on the K-Select to make it more resistant to fignerprint smudges, and it has a matte finish, too.
Keurig did not add an additional cup size without increasing the water reservoir. Naturally, the water tank on the K-Select is larger than its counterparts. It has the capacity of 52 oz, you should get five cups out of it before having to refill.
This is actually a great addition to a classic Keurig model like K-Select. Before, this feature was only available on premium Keurig 2.0 machines, and maybe some K-Cup brewers from other brands. The Strong Brew option allows the coffee in your K-Cup to steep longer before being dispensed into your cup. This kicks up the taste of your coffee into a bolder and more flavorful cup.
K-Select vs. K-Classic (K55), What’s The Difference?
Like mentioned above, the biggest competitor to the K-Select is in fact, K55 classic brewer. So, how do they compare to each other?
