This machine comes with a special package which includes: Keurig carafe in addition to six different types of capsules.
It has the same operation and technical features of K400, however there are a very slight difference between the two machines, mainly in the capacity of the machine water tank which is slightly bigger in K400 and in the package that is offered with it.
In K450; offering more capsules as it is giving ten different types of capsules besides a filter for the machine water tank in addition to Keurig carafe.
Note: the company is not producing this machine type any longer as K475 machine took over this product line; however there are still a few available machines to buy online with a limited machine color till it is out of stock.
This machine is the most recent updated machine of this product line, It has the same main operation and technical features of the above machines but it has a different selling point as it serves more cups in general by giving an additional K cup size.
This machine has got different package than the others which includes the following; Six different types of capsules which is less than what K450 is offering besides water filter kit plus two water filters which is a strong selling point as well in keeping the used water for making the coffee clean, away from any impurity and providing a high quality of cup of coffee.
Worth to mention that Keurig carafe is sold with a supplement as it is not included in this package, it is a negative point of selling for sure but still you can buy this item with a reasonable price.
My K-cup reusable filter is working with the above machines and with any other machines that are using the new Keurig 2 technology, but it is not included in any of the above machines packages or offers.
Keurig thermal carafe is sold separately as well and not included in any of the above machine types, this thermal keeps the drinks hot for around half an hour and it serves around 4 cups.

All the above mentioned machines have the same operation functions and technicality as we can see from the above comparison; the only differences are mainly related to the following:
- Each machine got its own package; K450 and K475 are the best in what they do offer.
- A very slight difference in the capacity of water tank favor K400, a little bit bigger than the other types but it is not that huge gap that we can rely on it as a strong selling point feature.
- K475 is offering an additional cup size to serve than the other machines, representing in K cups.
Although that K450 is cheaper, offering a decent package that includes the keurig carafe and ten different types of capsules while K475 is much expensive and just offering six different types of capsules with water filter kit plus two additional water filters but missing keurig carafe which is really a vital element to serve plenty of cups in the same time, but still you can buy the carafe separately with a decent additional supplement.
K475 is the most recent updated machine that has an additional cup size to serve while k450 has reached to the end and it is not produced any longer from the company as they wanted K475 to takeover and to lead this product line in the market, K450 machine is almost going to vanish away from the market once the left over are sold out from the online websites, the only available color for it now is just the black color while K475 is available in three different colors.
According to the facts giving, it is better to choose K475, the most updated machine, which is leading the product line, available in the market with different colors to pick from, has a decent offered package and simply you can purchase Keurig carafe with a small supplement is clearly better than getting a machine that we all know that it is not going to be produced any longer and will be vanished from the market soon.
