Question

What is the difference between a VUE and regualr model?

asked 10 months ago

ulie
on Keurig Vue V500 Single Serve Coffeemaker Brewing System
12 answers
Answers
answer 1
If you want to use the k-cups and your own coffee with the VUE 500, 600, or 700 you need to purchase an adapter which I found to be very expensive, $38.00. Its called the solofill V2, it comes with 3 pieces. You can purchase the solofill V3 at walmart for $12 but it is only to fill your own coffee, YOU CANNOT USE K-CUPS WITH THE V1 or V3 MODEL!!! The temperatures settings range from 187* to 197*, comes default at 192*. It has regular or strong on the coffee settings 4-16 ozs depends on how strong you want as to the ozs you brew, Tea/latte 6-12ozs and Hot Cocoa 6-10ozs. You can program the brewer to turn on each morning so you won't have to wait for the brewer to warm up. You can also program the brewer to turn off in increments of hours, ie 2 hours in case you forget to turn it off although that is not necessary but only to save on electricity. I do not find it necessary to purchase the water filter kit as I use bottled water anyway. De-scaling is recommended periodically. I hope this helps in making your decision.

answer 2
The Vue will make 2-step cafe drinks (like a lattee) - with the right Vue cup of course. ;) Also, the Vue allows the user to choose the oz of the beverage (8, 10, 12, 14, or 16 oz) and the user can adjust the temperature of the brew, which is great if you like really hot coffee like I do. Finally, the Vue does not come with (or have, as far as I can tell - but a Google search is always a good idea) a K-cup equivalent, so there is no way to brew your own coffee with it.

The VUE only uses pods which are only available from Keurig.com to my knowledge, while the pods for the K-CUP (regular model) are available just about everywhere. Also, there are refillable/reusable pods available for the K-CUP so that you could use your own coffee.

Vue cups are much harder to find than K-Cups and more expensive

answer 5
They use different pods -- the k-cup machines use k-cups and the VUE machines use V cups, which are bigger. You CANNOT mix and match the different cups unless you get an adapter (solofill v2 is the only one I know of at the moment). In my experience, the VUE actually brews a better cup of coffee and has a lot more options when it comes to drink temperature and the types of drinks you can brew. The VUE pods are also recyclable, if that matters to you.

The Keurig Vue builds in many more brewing options. Rather just coffee you can brew tea and specialty drinks. There are K-cups for tea and other types of drinks, however the Vue lets you specialize them with specific settings for tea, coffee, hot cocoa, brewing over ice and café style drinks like lattes and cappuccinos.

Vue does more things such as makes Latte's and Cappuccinos. Vue cups are a bit harder to find. Can be expensive but you can buy the cup to put your own coffee it it. Great fresh coffee every time! Small one is great for limited space kitchens and there is no water tank on it.

From what I could gather is they both use different cups, Vcups for Vue Machines and Kcups for the Keurig machines. The the Vue machine has a knob for temperature control now. The Keurig machines do not. Just a set temperature. This is about what i could figure out. The prices vary but due to the bells and whistles. I ordered the V500 during Black Friday so leaving soon to pick it up.

NO...at least mine did NOT. Also the v500 takes a different pod than your original kuerig. I find it difficult in finding pods for the v500 in my area. You can purchase an adapter called solofill V2 (3 pieces) that will fit in your v500. With this adapter you can also use the k-cups that are used in the original kuerigs. DO YOUR RESEARCH.

You'll need a travel size or iced coffee sized vue cup. Here is the video I found, I do have to warn you though, I tried it with a hot chocolate K-Cup and it dribbled out from places it shouldn't have...so I would be concerned it could leak coffee grounds if I had tried a coffee K-Cup.

In order to use the regular (original) k-cups you need to purchase a solofill V2 adapter (3 pieces). The V500 cups/pods are shaped differently and I have a hard time finding the v500 pods in my area. Research the cost of the solofill V2, I found they are expensive! This is also true will ALL the VUE products.

Walmart sells the Solofill V2 Gold Cup, the is for ONLY vue coffee makers. Suggest to buy the V2 not the V1, as the V2 has the adapter that you are able to use a regular K cup to make coffee.

So the Vue and Keurig cups are different fit now, Kcup and Vcup. BTW, Walmart has the cheapest Solofill V2 cup at the moment in store.
