I never owned a Bunn before and can say after using it for 2 weeks that it makes great coffee.
Recommend this product?
However, I would not have bought it if I knew it had to stay on all the time as a matter of its operation.
You can hit the vacation switch or unplug it, but otherwise, it is supposed to stay on, which I do not like when I am not at home.
Also, I encountered the issue of the other reviewer where it starts running and you cannot use the carafe to fill it.
I decided to keep it and use it, because the coffee is good but I may end up getting another coffee maker that does not have to stay on all the time, filled up with water.
