I recently tried out the B155 Commercial Grade Keurig Coffee Maker for a period of two weeks. I did this so that I could provide a detailed review to anyone considering this commercial grade model. I put away my usual coffee maker and used the Keurig for all my coffee-making needs. This way, I was able to see how this unit performs with regular everyday usage. Here is my review.
The B155 Keurig coffee maker is actually intended to be a commercial coffee maker, not a residential one. I have spent many years in the restaurant industry and I have worked with well-made commercial grade appliances. I tend to expect more out of my kitchen appliances because of my experience. Unfortunately, you can't just plop a commercial grade appliance into a regular kitchen in most cases. The reason you can't buy a regular commercial Keurig coffee maker and put it on your countertop is because of the water line. Most of the commercial models do not have a refillable reservoir, rather they are professionally installed and plumbed into a water supply. This way you never have to fill the water tank. Keurig realized that this isn't always feasible, even in commercial settings, so they made a change with the B155. It can be plumbed into a water supply or you can fill the 90 ounce water reservoir. This makes this a convenient option for someone who wants high-end commercial quality appliances in their kitchen or office without hiring a plumber and cutting holes in the walls.
The Keurig B155 Coffee Maker costs about $240, making it a lot more expensive than their residential models. Expectations ought to be very high for this model. I carefully unpacked my new coffee maker and looked it over. This machine is absolutely beautiful. It feels and looks incredibly high-end. The user interface is a full color touchscreen that looks very modern and expensive. There are four cup size options. The entire unit gleams with a gorgeous stainless steel finish. This coffee maker is heavy; it weighs almost twenty pounds empty. This is a testament to how well-made and sturdy it is, but also something to think about if you move your countertop appliances around a lot.
I brewed my first cup of coffee. This machine is very quiet; Keurig boasts that it is equipped with Quiet-Brew technology. The coffee was done quickly and turned out perfectly. I found the user interface to be very intuitive and user-friendly.
This model comes with a removable drip tray that is almost twice the size it needs to be. Oddly, the cup you are brewing into must be placed all the way to the left. I barely noticed that fact and I seemed to naturally put the cup where it ought to be. I am right-handed. My husband, who is left-handed, seemed to be inclined to place the cup on the right side if he didn't make a point to pay attention to placement. It seems obvious to me that the cup ought to go on the left side since the drain holes are cut out on that side and the part of the machine where the k-cup goes is directly above it. However, we ended up with a couple of messes due to an improperly placed cup. I remedied the problem by placing a small decorative sugar cup on the right side. This way, no one could put the cup on the right side and the sugar was always on hand when needed for a cup of coffee.
Other than the awkward drip tray placement, I honestly can come up with no real criticism for this model. Neither can anyone in my family. The closest thing to another complaint I might have is the high price tag, but I really do think it is worth it. A residential Keurig B70 or B77 Ultra will cost you more than 75% of the price of this unit, but they don't have anything near the quality or high-end look of the B155. The rest of my kitchen has residential versions of commercial appliances, such as my Viking range and KitchenAid Pro mixer and this fits right in with them. I don't just prize these items for the high-end look, I like residential appliances that deliver commercial grade quality. I have tested many Keurig coffee makers, and this is the one that has earned a permanent place in my kitchen.
