I've already raved about how much I love the carafe. However, the one thing I wish the carafe did was keep my coffee hot a bit longer. With Mini and Micro JG taking up most of my morning, I rarely ever get to enjoy a second hot cup. I'm actually lucky if it's still warm by the time I get to it. I think I may have to invest in the Keurig thermal carafe.
The second thing I've now noticed is getting hot water from the K500 is a bit more tedious than it was on our Platinum brewer. In the past we just had to lift the lid, close it, select the water size and hit brew. With the K500, the first few steps are the same as, however once the lid is closed, you have to press and hold the brew button. It also only dispenses 6oz at a time. Given that we always have hot water on hand for Micro JG's bottles, this isn't too much of an issue, but in a few months from now when he's weaned, I can see this being annoying.
Since my last post, I registered by brewer on Keurig.ca for two reasons, the first for warranty purposes and the second was to get the coupon code the buy 2 get 2 free (Yay! Free!). This was great because I really wanted to try Timothy's new line of "Indulgent Beverages" so I picked up a few boxes of these along with a few boxes of the K-Carafe cups so I could figure out which ones I want to continue buying. As a result my pantry looks like this...
I received the Keurig 2.0 K500 brewer complimentary from Influenster for testing and review purposes.
