Used to own a Bunn Automatic 3 burner diner style commercial brewer. Took 10 minutes to warm up in the morning and you could keep as many as 3 pots on the go. This was perfect in my household as I worked from home and had frequent visitors. It gave out after 20 years of loyal service and Icant seem to find one for less than $800. Does anyone know of a nice clean used version of this machine?
I actually saw one of these for sale in a local store yesterday for $99. I don't typically make coffee in bulk by the pot, but this could definitely come in handy during holidays and such. I'm definitely considering picking one up.

I just purchased the HG model from ABT Electronics for $99 with free shipping. I have to say that I am impressed. I always wanted a Bunn coffee maker, but didn't like the idea of having to keep a tank of water warm constantly. As soon as I saw this model, I had to have it. Thank you to the original poster of this topic.
This unit brews excellent coffee. It works much better than my Cuisinart.

Finally! Thank you so much, I have been looking all over the web for a review by someone who bought one. I am holding out for the thermal model, but I can't believe the lack of reviews of the glass model, as its been out over a month now. Any further info you could post would be great. Thanx
I mailed Bunn and got a reply from Cheryl in Customer support. The dimensions are 9"W X 10.4"D X 15.6"H
That a little wider/taller than what I've got there now. But not enough to be a problem.
Right now I've got the current machine (which I hate so much I can't even remember the brand) and a grinder sitting on a piece of 12"x12" black marble tile (with teflon slider feet under it). This makes it a lot easier to keep the counter clean. I'll have to get a wider piece of tile for this one. I'll just get a 12"x24" piece and cut it to width. Tile shops usually have singles for samples, or left-overs.
Looks like it might be our next machine!
So, Cecil, how's the construction of it? Does it seem durable? Is it first-thing-in-the-morning-brain-dead easy to use?
