Keurig Charcoal Replacement Filters May Prolong the Life of your Keurig Brewer

Pros:Filters impurities
Makes beverages taste better
May prolong the life of the brewer

Cons:Expensive

The Bottom Line: It is a good ideal to keep a box of six Keurig Charcoal Replacement Filters handy in case you run out of distilled water unexpectedly. 


When I purchased my Keurig Elite B40 brewer, the directions stated to fill the reservoir with bottled or filtered water.  I used distilled water and I felt I would not need to use water filter cartridges.

However, upon contacting Keurig, the representative told me it was a good idea to purchase the Keurig Charcoal Replacement Filters, for if I ran out of distilled water, I would be able to filter the water with the cartridges.  She also told me that using the filters may prolong the life of my Keurig brewer.  This may have been her personal opinion, but I have been using the charcoal filters ever since.

Description:
 
In order to use the charcoal cartridges in the brewer, you first have to purchase the Keurig Water Filter Starter kit.  This is a two piece black plastic assembly in which you place a Keurig charcoal filter.  It is to be placed in the bottom of the water reservoir and whatever type of water you use, is filtered through the brewer.  The filter device  has a built in replacement date dial with twelve months that may be manually set so you know when to change the filter.

The water filter starter kit contained two charcoal filters, but being it is suggested to have the filter changed every two months, I purchased a box of six Keurig Charcoal Replacement Filters so I would always have them on hand.

The six Keurig Charcoal Replacement Filters come in a gold, black, and white box.  All six filters are pictured on the front of the box.  Each filter is wrapped in a white cellophane-type, sealed wrapper with directions printed on the wrapper for use.

Before installing the filter into the plastic filter device, they have to be soaked in tap water for five minutes.  After soaking, they must be rinsed in clear tap water for 60 seconds.  It is important to replace the filters every two months or every 60 tank refills.  It is difficult to count how many tank refills you have used, so I go by the month that is specified on the gauge of the filter assembly.

The filters measure 2” x 1.25”.  Black charcoal, which feels like crushed stones,  are contained inside the white flannel-type covering.  The filters have no scent.

My Experience:
 
After soaking the filter for five minutes and rinsing for 60 seconds, I inserted the filter into the plastic filter device.  With no Keurig cup inserted, I ran three reservoirs of tap water through the brewer to assure the water was clear of charcoal.

Even though I use distilled water in my Keurig brewer, I feel the more the water is filtered, the better.   I personally feel the cartridges improve the quality of water and provides better tasting beverages.

My Take:
 
After speaking with the Keurig representative, I decided it was a good idea to keep the filters on hand in case I would run out of distilled water and I couldn't get to the store for some reason.

The filters are easy to install, and even though they are expensive, I feel it is better to be safe than sorry.  Also, by using filters, they may prolong the life of my brewer.

Cost:
 
A package of six Keurig Charcoal Replacement Filters retail for approximately $25.00.

Thank you for reading my review.
