If you want to keep some K-cups right near your brewer, this is a stylish way to go. It seems well made. I wasn't sure if I would care that there are wheels on the bottom which lock when you don't need them, and unlock with a push of the drawer handle when you want to use them. However, it has been handy for when I want to slide the entire drawer forward to wipe the counter behind.
Originally my idea was to place my brewer on top of the drawer, and the wheels were handy then for moving the entire set-up for cleaning without having to lift/slide my brewer when it's full of water and heavy. And that worked when everything was sitting out on an open counter/bar.
Then we moved, and the ideal location for my brewer in my new kitchen was always going to be under some kind of overhead cabinet. And while the brewer fits nicely, and the pod hatch on the brewer has plenty of room to open and close when the unit is placed directly on the counter, such was not the case when the brewer was placed on top of the storage drawer. When placed on top of the drawer under an overhanging cabinet, now the pod hatch on the brewer can not completely open and close without hitting the underside of the cabinet.
My solution was just to place the brewer directly on the counter top and then have the drawer sitting right next to it. I now use the top of the drawer to hold decorative canisters of chai tea mix and hot chocolate. So, I have still made the space look pretty and functional, but I wish that Keurig had made this entire set-up in such a way that you could stack the units under a standard sized kitchen cabinet and still be able to open the top hatch on the brewer without hitting the underside of the cabinet.
So, consider these comments when deciding where you are going to place your brewer in your kitchen and how you want to use the drawer.

I like the fact that this storage is made out of metal and fits underneath the brewer, but this product is storing K-cups laying on it's side, not labels up - so you CANNOT SEE at glance what you have in your drawer! And if you don't have your drawer completely full, K-cups slide around making a mess.
I have a storage unit similar to this (Costco) that stores k-cups labels up, so you can see round labels at glance - very organized! Keurig should adapt this design.
Compare the two designs...

I received this when I purchased the K55 for my dad. To me it's unnecessary and I prefer a ceramic coffee container that matches my kitchen to keep my pods in, just my aesthetic. Also, when I set this drawer up for my dad, the Keurig can go, or should go, on top of the drawer to save space. But the top of the open Keurig hits the cabinets above so he has to move it from underneath the counter when he makes a cup of coffee, something to keep in mind especially if your cabinets are low. However, the drawer has little wheels so moving it in and out from under the cabintes isn't a difficult process just annoying.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Aubrey25 Space saving drawer
This came free with my Keurig. II have a carousel and thought this would be a good space saver, which it is but....the pods sit on it's side and I don't think it's as easy to see the labels on them. For someone that uses only one or two brands it may not be a problem as it can then be put in rows. I like to use a variety of coffee and this poses a problem.
