Does anyone have these? I need one for work, but Amazon has about 200 reviews saying they break a month after the one-year warranty expires. While I admire fine engineering, I'm not always eager to subsidize it. Do you have a Keurig? If so, what model do you have and how long has it lasted?

Ours gets used 4 or 5 times a day, more on weekends, and is probably 3 years old now. We love it. No idea when the warranty expires though.

What model is it, do you know? I'm thinking maybe the bad reviews were just for one model.

My wife's company likes theirs, no problems after the warranty period.

We have had one at work for about three years, gets used several times
a day, no problems. Got one for the house and I love it

We have one. It is the mid-range one with 3 buttons/coffee sizes. We've had it now for 4 years I think and it is going strong. It gets used twice a day and sometimes more.

I have another one at work. Same model but newer. It is only about 4 months old but gets used frequently by about 5 people.

There are several @ work (different sizes) that have been there a couple of years with reasonable office use. No breakdowns/complaints. Other than a mediocre cup of coffee at best.

I have a one of the original One-cup Keurig coffee makers in my office. It's several years old and works fine.

We haven't had the same luck with the multi-cup makers for the home. Our last one broke after just 8 months. However, buy your machine at Bed, Bath, and Beyond; they replaced the broken machine for free with the latest version. Their replacement policy is top notch and does not have a time limit. May cost a little more at the beginning but you don't have to worry about it breaking as they will replace it at any time (as long as you keep the receipt).

Regardless, I still believe the Keurig is the best thing since sliced bread.

We've got one. Got it through Costco which means that it had an 18-month warranty (vice the 1 year) plus 24 free coffees. My wife used it pretty heavily and I just had to descale it despite only using bottled water in it. It still has an intermittent back flow issue which I haven't debugged yet.

Not sure what model it is, one of the mid range with three cup sizes.

My uncle has the same maker and its broken twice on him BUT he thinks he knows why. The grandkids would make a cup of something and open the lid right as it was done pumping water through, sometimes before it was done pumping (impatient kids). Basically interrupting the machines process, over and over again. When he stopped them from doing that, the maker stopped having problems.

The really nice thing about them is the variety of K-cups now available. All kinds of coffee, you can get Dunkin Donuts coffee in K-cups too, tea, hot chocolate, cider. It will even do brewed iced tea (I was skeptical the first time I tried it but it works and it tastes good).
