Summary: My husband was happy to get a BUNN. When we opened it up it looked great and fit so well under the cabinet. But when he made it the coffee was so weak. He tried several times with different grind of the beans not much different. My husband found a # to call BUNN They said that there was a restricter you can put in it to have the water slow down to get stronger coffees they sent it to us for free. He waited to get it. And when he did get it.
Summary: I really love this coffee maker. It took me a while to get used to the concept of no timer and turning it on and off. I don't know whether it wastes electric but I assume it's minimal. Love that it brews a full pot in 3 minutes. Cons (otherwise 5 stars) - the final portion can sometimes go on as it's dribbling the last water through. Also you can't make half a pot unless you guess what half the water would be inside the jug.

Summary: Very disappointed. 2 Major flaws with this unit that I hope will get addressed when I call customer service: 1. Coffee is not hot enough. 2. The basket overflows on nearly every brew creating a huge mess. I've tried using different grind sizes and I definitely use the Bunn filters that came with the unit. The coffee does taste very good. And, it brews very fast.
Summary: I love this coffee maker! Had it about a year and still running like a champ. Coffee ready in 3-5 minutes tops. Which if it's slows down I know I'm due for a cleaning. (We have very hard water, so I usually clean it once a month) Coffee stays hot in insulated pot for several hours. But not scalding fresh brewed hot. Which is great for me, I like it to cool down a bit before drinking it. Overall very pleased.
Summary: i cant figure out how to operate this coffee maker effectively. the large water chamber is meant to heat the water to the proper temp; however, as soon as i close the water-well lid, the water starts flowing out - cold. but if i wait an unpredictable (every single time - unpredictable-so predictably unpredictable) the water is still cold i have no idea, but im sorry i bought this

Summary: This brewer is awesome. Coffee still hot three hours after brewing in thermal pot. No continued heating so coffee never tastes burned. Highly recommend. It will be your last coffee maker if yours works like mine.
Summary: Not sure what to say about it. The Bunn is a good coffee maker, but could be so much more. A timer on it would make a BIG Difference, right now I use a wall timer for it. I still keep my keurig around because I want a cup in the afternoon and this stuff is cold by then. Keeps coffee warm for about 4 hours. takes 3 minutes to fill pot, same time as it takes for my keurig to warm up and fill my cup. If there are two of you who drink coffee in the morning it would be fine.
Summary: Second one of these I have bought. Wouldn't own anything else. It makes coffee fast and tastes SOOOOOOO much better than any other coffee maker I have ever had. We have very hard water and thats why I had to replace the first one (after 5 yrs thought). The hard water built up (no...I never descaled it as instructed...my bad) and so it quit heating the water. I still got 5 years out of it without proper maintenance so that's good.
