Why use Keurig for RV?

All Keurig Coffee makers come in the 1000 W to 1500 W range. But the good thing about them is that they all work for RV without any problem.

Preheating the Keurig coffee maker takes less than 2 minutes. So, once the Keurig is preheated, the wattage consumption is very less. Like low wattage coffee makers.

How many wattages the keurig coffee maker will use after preheating will depend on the model.
