The Keurig KOLD Is A Rather Odd Duck
TechCrunch has a pretty strong opinion on Keurig KOLD - it’s a bit of an odd duck.
The Keurig Kold is such an odd product that it almost looks like it came from a distant world where no one cares about corn syrup ingestion. Clad in white plastic and covered in grills, the case is far bigger than anything else in your kitchen and makes a noise like Darth Vader taking a nap.
They also go on to say the machine is rather pointless given the price of soda. What do you think? Is the Keurig KOLD just a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist? Is single serve soda going to take off? Did you buy a KOLD? If so do you like it?
The jury is still out for us here. We see the appeal of the machine and convenience, but the price for the machine and the KOLD cartridges is really high. Also the size of the machine on the counter is really large. We’ll have to see how this plays out over the holidays but so far the reviews for the KOLD and articles are not that kind.

Have the Kold machine in a small office (7 people plus clients). Most colleagues were skeptical about the Kold machine until it arrived and they tried it, and everyone uses it and loves it. Machine is only noisy on set up or if it has to re-refrigerate after 5 or 6 consecutive drinks, and it takes up counter space, but in the break room there's plenty. Only negative so far is the cost of the pods. Since production is still low, hopefully prices may drop as production and sales increase, and pods take up much less space than a variety of bottles or cans in a refrigerator or in stacks waiting to be refrigerated. Thinking of putting the machine in the client conference room with the stainless steel pod display to let clients pick their own drink!
