The Cuisinart SS-10 Keurig coffee machine is the best coffee machine on the planet. I have had mine since 2010 (it is now 2018) and it hasn’t failed me yet!
Now before all you coffee connoisseurs go hating, let me preface this post by saying that I am NOT a coffee connoisseur! I know you probably want a french press or espresso machine. However, I am just a regular ‘ol gal, that likes regular coffee and this machine is the bomb.
It has all the best features from any Keurig machine I have seen. To see all the cool features in person, watch my YouTube Video by clicking here or below!
- Single Serve for less waste
- 72oz water chamber (you don’t have to fill as much!)
- Water toggle alerts you when you need to fill with more water.
- Fully programmable! – you can set the clock, daily timer to turn on and off, Set your preferred brew size and your preferred brew temp.
- You can use the machine to make tea, chai, soup etc using the hot water feature.
- Rinse feature to clean the K-cup chamber.
- Easy on/off switch (or utilize the program feature for the times you want it on/off)
- Comes with single serve plastic K-cup so you can make your favorite (or cheap) coffee and not use the disposable K-cups.
STEP-BY-STEP on HOW TO USE (images below)
Step 1: Turn on machine. Mine is on the right hand side, but it will be a little button on either the right, left or back of machine.
Step 2: Wait for the machine to heat up and for the screen to say READY.
Step 3: Open the K-Cup holder by pulling up and insert the K-cup. The writing on the K-cup should be facing you with the small side going into the holder.
Step 4: Close the K-cup holder by pulling down and place your cup under it.
Step 5: Choose your preferred cup size (4, 6, 8, 10 12oz)
Step 6: Click on the BREW button!
Step 7: Wait for coffee to be finished brewing.
Step 8: Enjoy!
WHICH K-CUPS SHOULD I BUY??
I buy my K-cups at Costco because I know that I love Donut Shop. However, I suggest buying a variety pack to begin with online or at your favorite retailer to test out what brands and flavors you like. 8 years ago we bought the variety pack and I made a spreadsheet with a 1-5 rating system. My husband and I would rate the K-cup after each cup. We figured out that we loved the Green Mountain Brand. So then I found those brands and bought in bulk. I would not suggest buying in bulk until you absolutely know that you love it!
WHERE TO BUY THE MACHINE AND ACCESSORIES
Click here to buy the Cuisinart SS-10 Keurig Coffee maker on Amazon! I also love my coffee storage drawer that fits perfectly underneath the machine. (click here to view/buy the drawer!). It is recommended that about every 3-6 months you should descale the machine and change the filter. (Click here to see the filters I buy). I do NOT follow this recommendation because I am lazy LOL. I only descale and troubleshoot when the machine sounds like its broken (don’t worry, it’s not).
MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
Watch Part 2 of The Cuisinart SS-10 Keurig coffee machine where I tell you how to troubleshoot and maintenance your Keurig coffee machine. As I mentioned I have had my machine for 8 years and a few times it seemed like it was a goner. It wasn’t! It just needed a little tender loving care.
