Can We Help You Find The Right Keurig For You?
I need help finding the best model for my use.
No, thanks. I prefer to browse all models and decide for myself.
*Note: Breville YouBrew has been discontinued and replaced with Breville Grind Control. Read our comparison between Breville Grind Control vs Cuisinart Grind and Brew here.
We’ve previously compared two excellent grind and brew coffee makers, the Cuisinart vs the Capresso Grind and Brew coffee makers, as both are similar features and price wise.
Another popular choice for a Grind and Brew coffee maker is the Breville YouBrew Coffee Maker, which is around $100 more expensive than the other two. Many people wonder if that much in extra cash makes a difference performance wise, or is just all just a hype? In this post, we’ll be comparing the YouBrew to the Cuisinart Grind and Brew to find out.
You can read full features of both machines in the following post: The Best Coffee Makers with Built-in Grinders.
Both are excellent coffee makers with built-in grinders that prepare fresh and delicious coffee. But the Breville YouBrew is way ahead when it comes features and performance:

So, what’s the difference between the two machines?
If you care about a truly customized cup of coffee, the YouBrew is what you want. The Single Cup brew feature is also another great plus, not many coffee makers offer that. The design and control panel of the machine is clear to read and easy to use. It offers great value for your money.
Convinced that the YouBrew is the right coffee maker for you? Great! The second decision you’ll have to face is between two YouBrew models: the BDC600XL (Thermal) vs. BDC550XL (YouBrew Glass). Both work almost the same way, the difference is only in the carafe material, double-walled insulated thermal carafe or a glass carafe with heating element on the machine.

As Keurig is a popular name in the coffee maker market, people often try to compare the Breville YouBrew to Keurig coffee makers, but there’s absolutely nothing to compare. As of now (late 2014), Keurig does not have a coffee make with a built-in grinder. It does have many single-cup coffee makers, but it’s not the same as the YouBrew at all.
a Keurig 2.0 Brewer is the only Keurig that can brew both single cup servings as well a full carafe. The machine is available in a number of models that vary in sizes, so you can choose the right one for your needs.
Keurig K55 is an excellent choice for single cup brewing with a large 48 oz reservoir. Perfect for brewing many cups without the need to refill.
Keurig K15 is perfect for a single user who needs something compact. It has no water reservoir, instead you add a fresh cup of water for every brew. It's very small in size in comparison to other Keurigs.
