Keurig Platinum Brewer *Review and Giveaway*

We are huge tea and hot chocolate drinkers in our house, and I like to enjoy the occasional decaf flavored coffees.  I know that we are lightweights here in the house, but we always have coffee available for our family members when they come to town.   My one big problem with a coffee maker is that it makes a whole pot of coffee, or you don’t get to have any options on what you get to make.  So when you have guests in your house or you and your husband drink something different you are confined to making large batches of coffee, or making separate messes in the kitchen for two small cups.

I was recently given the chance to review the Keurig Platinum Brewer and I must say that I already love the functionality of this coffee, tea, and hot chocolate brewer.  Yes, I did say all three!  What is so wonderful about having the Keurig Platinum Brewer is that you can choose what you are having and brew your own individual cup and then the next person that comes along can choose something totally different.  I can remember over the holidays having a large amount of family here and all of them drank or preferred a different kind of tea or coffee and I surely needed the Keurig then, but I didn’t even know that such a thing existed.  When I received the Keurig Platinum Brewer and tried it out I was excited that I had a way to make myself my hot chocolate or tea and then my husband could have something different if he wanted.

Another great feature is that you can pick which size cup of coffee or tea you want to brew and it even has an option for making an iced beverage.  You can set your brewer to turn on or off when you want it too, so that makes it nice for when you get up in the morning.  The brewer is incredibly easy to use, and you will have a fresh cup of tea or coffee in less than a minute.

Nothing about the Keurig Platinum Brewer is difficult, right down to cleaning the unit.  I haven’t done what they call a purge on the system yet but that looks like a fairly easy task.  You can remove the drip tray and put it in the dishwasher, and the k-cup holder is easily removed to clean it.



The Platinum offers the full spectrum of features including Auto On/Off, Digital Clock, Adjustable Temperature Control and the “Set Your Favorite Cup Size” option. The largest available 60 oz. removable water reservoir holds up to ten cups before refilling and the removable drip tray allows for easy cleaning and the use of travel mugs. The sleek, award-winning design is a unique footprint among Keurig’s line of home brewing systems and includes both a blue lit water reservoir and blue lit LCD display.

  • 5 cup sizes 4 oz, 6 oz, 8, 0z, 10 oz and 12 oz cup size options
  • Removable 60 oz water reservoir
  • Fully Programmable Features
  • Blue Backlit Display
  • Quiet Brew Technology
  • Award Winning Design

About Keurig

The word “keurig” is derived from the Dutch word for excellence. Excellence guides everything they do at Keurig from their patented single-cup brewing technology, to the gourmet brands of coffee and tea that are packaged in their K-Cup® portion packs, to their customer service.

Today, Keurig® is the leading single-cup brewing system in North America-for both At Home and Away From Home. Now, you can enjoy a fresh cup of gourmet coffee or tea, and hot cocoa Keurig Brewed® in less than a minute, without any set-up or clean-up. Keurig’s popular coffee, tea and hot cocoa brands offer hundreds of K-Cups® to choose from, so everyone can have their favorite variety.


I was amazed while browsing their site at the huge selection of coffees, teas and hot chocolates, and they also have some really nice accessories to go with your brewer as well.  They have water filters available, racks to hold all your k-cups so they are nice and neat and easily accessible on your counter, and they even have a special My K-Cup adapter so you can brew a cup of your favorite tea or coffee that you are used to drinking.

I love the versatility of the Platinum Brewer because you can make several cups of anything you choose and you don’t have to worry about the mess or making more than you can actually drink, just to enjoy one cup of coffee or tea.  It is incredibly easy to use and I love the blue backlit display because it makes it easy to see.  The temperature preference is also nice because you can pick how hot you want your drink to be, I am one of those people who likes it somewhere in the middle.    The one thing that you have to be careful with is to remember to have your cup in place before you start brewing or you will have a mess to clean up.  I would definitely recommend chucking that coffee pot for a Keurig Platinum Brewer because it is a one man show when it comes to making hot beverages for yourself, for your husband or for visitors.  You’ll never have to rinse out the coffee pot to set it up for something different ever again.  I get excited just to go make a cup of tea or coffee now. I LOVE IT!
