good ,hot coffee, fast brew, very simple to operate but on the down side very, very messy!!! water drips and spills everywhere
Positive Product Points
I purchased for the high rating and thermal pot. It does keep my coffe much hotter than my Capresso did. If I leave coffee in the pot, the next morning it is slightly still warm. Brewing time is fast. Makes a good cup of coffee if you add more grounds to the filter basket. It is simple to operate, I am not into all the fancy buttons and timers, I really don't like pots that incoparate grinders as the grinds eventually stray into your pot, so I like it for its simpleness.
Negative Product Points
I purchased a Bunn because of the high rating it receved. I owned a thermal capresso and enjoyed it until it caught on fire. It was only 3 years old and decided I did not want to risk burning down my newly built home by purchasing another one. I have a problem with water leaking out of the filter basket before the lid is closed (which by the way activates the brewing process) I also have an extreemly difficult time pouring the water into the resevoir as half of it is on my counter, and getting one cup of coffee without half spilling onto the counter is utterly impossible. I would like to know if any others have experienced this same thing.
I believe since this Bunn is for home use and not commercial grade because of the simplicity of the unit it is overpriced! The Coffee is good, and it stays hot which is what I want. If I forget and leave coffee in the pot overnight when I empty it out the next morning it is still slightly warm. I just hope this one does not catch on fire as my previous other brand did, we were just lucky we were home and not away or we would have been homeless! I just wish I didn't loose half the water before it reaches the resivoir and also before it reaches my cup. I hate cleaning spilled coffee, It makes my counter so messy I am cleaning water and coffe before getting to enjoy my first cup of the morning. Please email me if you have experienced this, I can't help to think that this might be, or become a recall on this model.
We won't go there!!!!! We purchased it at Lowes home improvement center, it took 2 days to finally get the machine. it was a nightmare
