Comment:
I like the Keurig Elite when I want a quick cup of coffee. Servings are small. I carry a large mug of coffee with me, so when I need to fill it up, I will make a whole pot of coffee in my regular coffee maker. If I want a smaller cup of flavored coffee or to top off my large mug, I will use the Keurig Elite.

Comment:
Purchased the K45 Elite Brewing System and received one weeks worth of use before it stopped brewing. Returned the system to the store from which purchased and purged the system and got it ready for use the following day. Upon awaking the following morning the system did exactly the same as the one it replaced. DID NOT BREW A SINGLE CUP OF COFFEE!

Comment:
I have gone through 4 Keurig Coffee Makers (they work for about three months) and I have had nothing but problems with them. They are mechanically flawed and break down often, not brewing properly, is loud and unpredictable. I would discourage consumers to avoid this product altogether and buy a Mr Coffee.
