I should have read the reviews before I purchased. There is nothing wrong with this machine, except that it only takes Vue cups, not K cups. Vue cups are not available any where I have looked,evidently they have to be bought online. I ordered an adapter from Amazon, the only place I could find one, but I have not had a chance to try that yet. Much simpler to just get a regular K-cup machine and have the vast assortment of K-cup coffee available at any store.
Ok, I should start off by saying the disappointment is partially my fault for not doing more research and reading before purchasing the VUE... guess I was too impressed by the price! My main disappointment is that there are no refillable cups available for the VUE which would allow me to use my own type of coffee. I am originally a New Orleans girl and absolutely love my Coffee & Chickory. I finally have a Keurig after hearing so many brag about them, but have kept my former coffee brewer handy. I just don't know how long I can go without my coffee & chickory, which I have been drinking for about 39 years. I received a variety pack of coffee with this machine and also ordered several different types of the VUE coffee pods from Keurig.com, unfortunately I have found that they all seem to have an instant coffee taste. If only they would make a refillable cup for the VUE as they have for the K-CUP machine, it would be perfect in my opinion! If not, guess I'll just have to order the cocoa and sweet tea pods and let the kids use the Keurig.
I had already ordered this before I sadly realized it didn't use K-Cups (my own fault...I could've just read where it says "DOES NOT WORK WITH K-CUPS") I was ready to return it before we even received it, but my husband did some research and told me that it actually has an option to make frothy lattes, so I gave it a shot and we absolutely love it.
It brews in under a minute (the 2 step lattes take a bit longer but are totally worth it!)
The user manual even suggests peeling the foil and filter out of a used cup and using it to heat water for oatmeal or soups! Haven't tried that yet...but it got me thinking...you could just let it heat the water to brew your favorite tea, so I won't be trying the Tea Vue Cups!
I ordered the two-pack of Coffee vue cups from Walmart and was very pleased with the price.
Our local store is small, and they had virtually no selection of vue cups. I happily discovered that a competitor's store (the one with the red and white circles) has a much wider selection of cups!
TIP: Both stores keep the Vue cups with the Coffeemakers and NOT in the coffee aisle.
Another tip...You CAN modify an empty TRAVEL size Vue Cup to hold a K-Cup. I tried it with a hot chocolate K-Cup and it worked... but I did have a lot of dripping and spewing to wipe up afterwards. I would be afraid to use a coffee K-Cup because I think I would have gotten coffee grounds all down in my machine. There is a video on Youtube of "how to use k-cups in the new keurig vue" But I've found, unless you already have the K-Cups, the Vue cups aren't any more expensive and won't risk damaging your investment.
I was underwhelmed with this Keurig system at first, but it's definitely grown on me. I had the impression that the Vue was an upgrade from the standard Keurig, but I think it was equivalent. I got this Keurig Vue at a $50 or $60 discount so it was a great value. It does brew well. You get the option of coffee, tea, cocoa and café style drinks. I've used the coffee, tea, cocoa and brew over ice options and I'm pleased.
I think the appearance is bulky, but all keurigs are.You DEFINITELY want to use filtered water to get good tasting coffee. Vue cups are hard to find, but the solofil 3 in 1 works super well and you can use regular K cups with it. However, the k-cup can fall out a little and you'll have to be careful that it does not get stuck when you open it.
I love the convenience of making anything I want rather quickly. I am also looking forward to hosting with it.
This was a gift as I am a big coffee drinker and love GREAT COFFEE! This machine makes great coffee. But what good is a machine that takes specific VUE cups that aren't available ANYWHERE!!! So Keurig told me I can order them online or get them at Bed Bath and Beyond (which is a few hours from me). So if I want VUE cups I have to order them!!! I don't like this idea!!! So if you MUST get this machine then you MUST also pay an additional $20 to order the refillable Solofil cup for the vue. I can buy regular coffee and kcups and just fill my refillable. Takes convenience out but the coffee is still good.
As soon as I figured out that I had to buy special K-Cups I returned the Keurig! That is ridiculous! Not only that but you can only get them at specialty store or at Keurig.com! That was my main complaint and a valid one I thought!
I didn't know until it arrived that this version doesn't use the usual K cups-you have to buy a specific kind of cups.
I love how u can make cafe lattes, and all the different coffee options they have! Also how u can choose how strong you want ur coffee!! The price was excellent and I received it a day after I order! Worth it every penny!! Love it
My coffee pot was beginning to show signs it was on the blink and the kids told me I would love one of these. I finally bought the V500 and I love it. I bought the reusable cup also so I can use my own coffee if I want to as some of the pre packaged for the machine are a bit expensive. Wish I had bought this sooner. Great fresh coffee, tea, cocoa, cider, and so much more!
I greatly regret buying this thing.
I didn't know what I was doing when I decided I wanted a Keurig for a gift. BIG MISTAKE buying the Vue! You really need a k-cup machine instead. Fool that I am, I couldn't imagine that there would be a difference. THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE between Vue and K-Cup, the former being nearly impossible to find the coffee cups for.
I had thought that I could get a reusable filter for this machine but none such exists. It was the major reason why I wanted to get it- you could use your own coffee when you want to save on money! WRONG.
I really really hate this machine. I can't believe I am stuck with it now. The cups are nice treats but unrealistic for daily use. I cannot use it everyday.
BIG THUMBS DOWN
I wish I had known that the VUE cups are not as readily available at local stores as the K cups are. But the machine works well, and is easy to use. I would recommend it.
Never owned a Keurig, but learned a lot about them over the 2 weeks it took to select the Vue V500. Chose it because of these options: 16 oz setting, higher temp settings, pulsed water, and the strong option setting. Delivered on 7/18/14. Used for 3 weeks when, with no warning, it decided it only wanted to put out just a small amount of water regardless what ounce it was set on. 3 weeks old! I wasn't about to deal with customer service trying to figure out what was wrong with it. Just got back from returning it. Purchased the Keurig K75 Platinum at another store. Lets see how it goes! I can already say I miss the options I wanted to begin with.
I thought I was upgrading, when I ordered this product, but it is not as good as my 5 year old Keurig, so I am returning it.
I purchased this for a gift. She's very happy with this gift. It's all she talks about. I happy, as long as she's happy.
Easy to use, its quick and my coffee comes out hot. wish it had temp control. I use it for teas, coco and coffee. my husband is not a coffee drinker but he loves it because is able to make his coco and teas pretty easy and fast.
GoTo Walmart To Find Coffee Or Hot Chocolate Nothing....They Don't Even Make The Refillable K CUps And Have No Idea When They Will Make Them To Sell ...So I'm Gonna BeReturning This Item....Just Not WOrth The Money....The HOt Chocolate Was To Watery
Will not work with K-cups. Must use expensive Vue-cups. Coffeemaker sold by Walmart but, the Vue cups are not available at my local store. Have to order online which adds shipping cost and time delay to receive purchases. Plan on returning my purchase and buy a K-cup model.
Huge waste of money and now I have a huge, useless machine on my kitchen counter. I can't find vue cups anywhere. I can order them online at Amazon, but honestly, I think I should easily be able to find coffee at the grocery store. I am disappointed beyond words. This was the biggest waste of money ever. Wish I had read the reviews and returned this gift without having opened it. Trust me... Seriously. Don't buy it. Get a regular keurig. Even the frothing option is underwhelming. You have to use two vue cups to achieve that effect, and they are much more expensive (if you can even find them.) Save yourself the buyer's remorse. Don't buy this.
I received this as a Christmas gift , it came with 6 cups of a variety of coffees and teas. They were very good and the machine worked good BUT when I ran out I couldn't find anymore cups for it!!!!!
Shipping was fast. Got my Keurig tried it out with samples that came with it. Tryed the hot chocolate it kinda has a weird taste to it. Walmart does not sell the Vue cups which is very disappointing. When I finally found the cups at a different store I tried the hot chocolate again and still has a weird taste to it. So I'm not so excited about the machine any more since I bought it specifically for hot chocolate and hot tea.
