This review is from: Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter (Kitchen)I've had my Keurig for 2 years, and my re-usable K-cup for 1 year. It works perfectly just as it is, as long as you don't overfill it and follow the directions.
Oh, wait...mine didn't HAVE directions.
When I first got it, I won't lie...I screwed it all up. The blasted thing didn't have directions, so I thought the cute little basket went right into the K-cup part of the Keurig. I had not a clue that the black K-cup holder part with the needle that pokes the bottom of the K-cup had to come OUT of my Keurig to put the gray part in.
I made a huge mess.
So, here are the directions for everyone else, so you don't have to be a dummy like me:
1. That place in your Keurig where K-cups normally go? Yeah, it actually comes out of the machine. Really, it does. There are three little tabs you have to push on the rim of it to pull it out. Get that thing out of there. It's not difficult, so if you're being rough with it, stop. It comes out pretty easily. Be careful you don't gouge yourself with the stabby-thingies in the machine.
2. Open up your reusable gray K-cup filter, wash it, and put about a tablespoon of coffee in there. If you like it strong like me, I suggest a finer grind. If you use Folgers, put it on a smaller cup setting or you won't get it very strong. This little bugger is made for just one cup at a time (whereas I can usually get one big cup or two little cups out of a disposable K-cup).
3. PUT THE LID BACK ON (!!!) the gray K-cup filter and put it into the spot where the regular black one usually lives (amazing, it fits!). Close it up and let 'er rip.
4. If you got coffee everywhere, you did something wrong. I know, I know...I didn't want to believe it either. Maybe you didn't put the lid on, or put the cute little basket into the machine without the gray part. Whatever. Either way, it's not the product's fault that you're dumb like me. :o) Start over, figure out what you messed up, and enjoy your coffee when you finally have that forehead-slap moment.

I was not using the cup with the lid! Just put it aside, wondering what it was for.
Instructions might have helped. Thanks so much for spelling it out.

Thanks so much for saving us all a lot of aggravation. While my husband has the ability to take a jet engine apart and put it back together and make it fly this probably would have pushed my stressed hubby over the edge until he figured it out :)
My question is, how easy is it to put the original kcup holder back in so my daughter can make her hot chocolate?

It is not that difficult to insert the original K Cup holder. As long as you line the arrow up you are ok. It will work out very well. Also....your Keurig came with a manual and in there it shows you how to take the K Cup holder out and how to insert it again. It really is very easy. My hubby is a mechanical engineer...and for the life of him he could not figure it out either...guess it takes a novice to do it...lol!

It's REALLY easy to click back in once you've figured it out. Just line up the tabs and push the edges down firmly until it's all snapped in place. I remove mine and pop it back in regularly. Best of luck!

Thank you! This is the only place I found the answer to how to use the reusable coffee filter. I couldn't figure it out and was going to call Keurig support today.

The one I received does not have Keurig under the lid. Maybe that is why, even after following the directions in the video, I still get grounds overflowing out of the hole in the top of the lid and into the cup? I also do not get a nice eve stream, the coffee come spilling out of all the sides of the hole in the bottom. I must use a very wide cup or the coffee will miss it and drip all over the counter. I am return this one and will buy one at Walgreens or Walmart where it is much easier to return if it does the same thing.
