As of 2015, the best coffee maker, according to Good Housekeeping, is the Keurig Vue. The testers stated that the machine comes loaded with customization options, but takes up a lot more counter space than its competitors.
Consumer Search gives the award of best overall pod coffee maker to the Cuisinart SS-700 Single Serve Brewing System. The SS-700 is one of the most consistent machines available. Testers at Consumer Search stated that it also worked very fast, usually taking less than a minute to brew a single cup. The machine is also very easy to use and has an internal capacity of ten cups. However, many customers stated that the pump inside the machine wore out quickly, sometimes in as few as six months.
