Product Comparison: Keurig K475 vs Keurig K575
- Brews fast, which is good first thing in the morning.
- It has good water capacity and makes great coffee.
- Replaced our original Keurig -- outstanding. Larger water capacity than before, select mug size up to 12 oz.
- The timer always work and the water is heated and ready for me.
- Even at 70oz, it seems the reservoir needs to be constantly filled.
- The temperature doesn't come close to being hot enough. I wish there was an adjustment you could make to actually set a temperature to the "Hot" setting.
- Brews stronger, more flavorful coffee from the same pods.
- Makes the coffee hotter than other models I have tried.
- Easy to program auto on/off, which you'll want to do because it is rather slow to preheat.
- Large reservoir w/ filter is convenient for a few uses. Hot water on demand is convenient for tea and hot cocoa.
- Takes a full 3 minutes to heat up for the first cup.
- Brew time is a bit longer (1 min for regular, 2 min for strong brew both a 10oz. brew size.
- Even on the highest level, brew is not as hot as the original versions.
- Seems like a nice coffee maker for the price, compact and easy to use.
- It's not heavy and eay to use.
- It is compact and easy fits on our counter.
- Machine is light weight and we can fit it in cabinet.
- The machine looks nice sitting on our counter as well; it goes with the rest of our stainless steel appliances.
- oesn't take too much space on my kitchen counter and it's easy to move around when in need of a water refill.
- It is really beautiful as well, so looks good sitting on the counter - bonus!
- It's too big. It takes too much space on the kitchen counter. And you can't place it under a low cabinet because it requires 18 inches of clearance!
- It is a larger maker, so you will probably want some counter space for it - didn't have any issues here with our countertop space.
- Ability to use reusable filters, and your own coffee.
- This one is perfect! It allows you to brew different sizes 8 oz, 10 oz, 12 oz, 16 oz and more.
- There are 4 selections for the amount of brew you want. Nice feature if you're heating a cooled cup of coffee and don't need a whole new cup.
- There is a separate control for brew strength (though I don't know if it really makes any difference - generally, the less water you use, the stronger the brew). The display is LED color and walks you through the whole process.
- Bottom cup tray does not lock into unit. Just sits there and can slide out easily and unintentionally.
- I find filling the reservoir awkward - the opening is angled and narrow, so unless you have a goose-necked vessel, you run the risk of spilling water all over the place.
- It's a bit slower than our previous one, since sometimes you have to wait for it to preheat if its been idle for a while, and its louder - there is a piston pump inside that starts pumping to fill the reservoir as soon as you hit the button.
- Hinged lid is in the middle of the machine and seems to fit more towards the rear of the counter without the cabinet above getting in the way.
- Improved ability to use reusable filters without hacks (Di Oro works great).
- Easier to clean and includes a maintenance accessory for the needle.
- The features in this are wonderful. Same auto cutoff , 12 oz, water on demand, seems slightly smaller yet holds 80 oz.
- It takes about a minute to heat water and become "ready". I've been using the "auto-start" option to avoid waiting for it when I wake up and get my coffee right out of the bed.
- Noisier, somewhat slower, and occasionally gets hung up with hot chocolate where I have to reset.
