Positive Product Points

Brew temp is about 200 in the basket. FAST pot of coffee, you take that for granted until you use a drip brewer in a hotel or relative's house.

Negative Product Points

Hard to pour out the whole pot without dripping some on the counter. If not used regularly it's hard to judge how much water to pour in, as some has evaporated and you'll get a short pot.

Detailed Commentary

I own a Bunn VP-17 pourover brewer at work, and this B-10 is a comparable step-down home version. I've measured the temp and it varies between 196-202. I like mine hot (for cream), so this is an ideal temp for me (wife puts ice in hers). I use this along with the Bunn BCG grinder (I also roast my own coffee) and I get consistent, easy to repeat results--unless it hasn't been used in a few days, in which case I usually end up with a 'short' pot since some of the water has evaporated. That's really the only annoyance with this machine.

You need to use Bunn filters (they're taller) or else the filter will overflow due to the speed. I've tried the 'slow' brew head but prefer the coffee with the standard head (maybe the agitation extracts more flavor?).

Oh, and Bunn has excellent customer service.

Buying Experience

Typical Sears experience, I'll leave it at that.
