Great. The last coffee maker you'll ever buy.

Pros:Great coffee, quick, well worth the money if you consider how long it will last

Cons:No timed safety shut off

The Bottom Line: The best and last coffee maker you will ever buy, hands down. No other maker will ever top BUNN for home coffee makers!


I can only echo the great things about this coffee maker that other people have said about similar BUNN coffee makers. The coffee tastes great. It brews a full pot (10 cups) in less than three minutes. It will outlast other coffee makers 10 times over. I bought this coffee maker shorty after my wife and I got married. I bought it because the one we received as a wedding gift (we tossed our old ones) was, to be nice, complete junk. We had purchased one of these BUNNs at work about 10 years previous when we were killing Mr. Coffees, Black & Deckers, etc... on an average of about every three months. Somebody recommended we buy a BUNN and that there was a store that sold them locally. After that, no problems. The coffee maker work flawlessly for 8 years at which time it was replaced by another BUNN. Please keep in mind that this coffee maker typically brews at least 10 pots between 7am & 9am and then continues to brew all day up until about 7pm. We typically go through a 3 lb can of coffee in two days. So, with this in mind, 8 years is a long time. So, anyway, I finally bought one for home. It works just as good as the one at work did.

Now, some people here have complained that there is no timer. I really don't see a need for one when it only takes a couple of minutes to brew a full pot of coffee. If you are that tired in the morning, fill the pot with water and the basket with coffee before you go to bed. Some other have complained about the styling, saying that it looks like it came out of the 70's. My answer to that is "I don't care". I bought this coffee pot to brew coffee, not to impress friends. BTW, it seems to impress friends without looking good. I have at least 4 friends who have bought this coffee maker because of me. I never said a word, the coffee maker sells itself. They would see it in my kitchen and say "where did you get a BUNN!?!?" When I ask people if they want coffee, they say usually say no, but when I tell them it'll only take a minute they usually change their mind and then come to the kitchen to find out how I can make a hot cup of coffee in a minute. For those who demand better styling, there are a few other models available in stainless steel or with stainless accents. Some people have also complained about it wasting energy while keeping the water warm all day. I really don't know how much energy it uses to do this, but I doubt it is all that much. After all, our home hot water tanks keep 30 gallons or more warm all day too. Also, this is the secret to how this coffee maker makes coffee that tastes so good so quickly. For those who don't like the idea, there is a switch to turn the heater off. Just turn it on in the morning and let it sit for about 15 minutes. So, your up to the old 17 minutes that it took your old pot to brew, but it tastes better. Really the only thing I think could be improved is the lack of a safety shut off. The pot warmer is an actual rocker switch that will stay on as long as you leave it on. There is no auto shut off after a certain period of time like some other brewers.

UPDATE: To answer questions that have been asked. The filters are standard 8-12 cup paper filters. Some people have stated that the coffee tastes better if you use BUNN filters, but I didn't notice a difference between the filters that came with it when it was new and the cheap replacement filters. The vacation switch is the switch that I spoke of. This coffee maker works by using a small hot water tank which keeps the water hot all of the time. The vacation switch is the switch that turns this heater off. If you don't make coffee for an extended period, the water in the tank will slowly evaporate if this switch is left on. As I stated above, it only takes 10-15 minutes to heat this tank of water back up to brewing temperature. This is the small switch you see on the side of the unit in the pictures.
