When I got this new Bunn, which was on sale online for $85, I had forgotten how huge they are because of the water tank that stays warm all the time. Disappointingly, the carafe is smaller, 10 cups, than the Toastmaster, which held 12 cups. The Bunn has a weirdly shaped top on it to prevent the coffee from dripping. Left me wondering why they didn't just reshape the carafe spout so it wouldn't drip.
You have to fill the basket with a filter, then coffee, fill the Bunn carafe with COLD WATER, pour the water in the top, turn the coffeemaker on and THEN close the lid, or you will end up with water all over your counter!! If you use soft water or filtered water, you will need to order a device from Bunn that slows the water down as it comes out, or same problem.
The coffee perks in three minutes and is good and hot. You get a small package of Bunn filters with the coffeemaker, but they are expensive to reorder. Plain ones from a discount store work just as well. A permanent filter will not work, as the coffee will go everywhere, and again, you'll have coffee and water all over your counter. If you want a coffeemaker that will last, buy a Bunn if you can adapt to its quirks.
1. In the manual, there's a phone number to call to order a free "flow restrictor" piece that you swap out on the spray head. Do this, it's very important.
First of all, the stock machine wastes coffee and requires the taller Bunn filters. The coffee comes out really fast, but it pushes a lot of the grounds up against the wall of the filter, making for weaker coffee and requiring taller filters - which isn't necessarily bad but they're not as readily available as regular filters. If you just drink regular, coarse ground coffee you may not care. But if you really want to get the full flavor out of your coffee, like we do, then changing out the spray head takes care of that. It makes the brew time slightly longer, but a negligible amount. The difference in flavor and the ability to use regular filters makes it worthwhile.
(FYI, we had to do the same thing with our previous Bunn, the one with the silver double-sided tank, so I half expected to have to do it again, but I was surprised that Bunn just doesn't include the piece, or make it a permanent switch. We called them and in 2 days it was in the mailbox, so they're aware of the demand for it.)
2. On this model, compared to the other, the heater plate doesn't have any raised part to hold the pot in place, so it can slide out easily. Just make sure you don't knock into it while brewing or it could slide too far to one side and make the coffee miss the hole in the pot. Also, the pot shape is a little awkward compared to the other model. It has a little tongue on the top of the lid so that when you pour a cup of coffee it doesn't drip. That works nicely, but it takes some getting used to when you're pouring the water in the brewer. I guess this is why they sell that little pitcher, to avoid that. But in the larger scheme of things it's not that big a deal.
3. Where you pour the water: This model has a door that lifts, while the other model slides open sideways. No big deal, but if you have it beneath cabinets like we do, you may have to pull the machine forward a little more to get the water in. No big deal.
4. The filter basket on this model is definitely thinner and a little more cheap feeling than the other model. Again, no big deal, but don't be surprised. It does what it's supposed to, but it's not very ergonomic like the other one was.
5. Aside from being a little awkward, the pot itself is also a little thinner and lighter than the other model. I'm always careful anyway, but I have a feeling this one would be more susceptible to breaking than the other model. I may get a spare, just in case.
So bottom line, if you like coffee brewed fast, this is a great machine. No clock or timer or lights or anything like that, just coffee on demand. Just be aware that (a) it has to be plugged in and "on" all the time to keep the water reservoir hot (that's how you get the coffee so fast) and (b) if you like really flavorful coffee you'll have to call in for the free spray head. But they give you a bunch of tall filters in the box, so you can use the machine while waiting for the part to come in the mail.
We've only been using this machine for a week or two, and so far it works great. Our other Bunn lasted two years before it started to leak, and wound up leaking so much water that it became unsafe. Hopefully this one will last longer.
Pros: Fast, quiet, and user friendly. Love the fact that it fills from the front. The decanter is truly non-drip.
NOT a negative for us: Yes, as some have mentioned this coffee maker does require Bunn (slightly larger) filters, but that is no big deal to my way of thinking. We are coffee lovers and spend a few extra bucks for better coffee anyway, and the filters are available almost everywhere. If economy is what's important, than one should be looking at the ubiquitous "Mister" brand $15 coffee pot anyway, right?
Cons: I should have taken more seriously what some other reviewers when they say "your whole house will smell like hot plastic for a few days"! Had I realized just how strong the smell is, I would have set up the Bunn in our garage and used it there for the first several days! Thankfully the smell has now subsided.
The only other shortcoming that we've encountered so far is that brewing (only) 6 cups of decaf coffee almost overflowed the filter; I'm sure had we brewed more cups at one time it would have overflowed. Looking in the troubleshooting guide, Bunn states that if you use decaf coffee OR have soft water, you will need a special restrictor-type spray head. Well guess what - we also have a water softener!
We contacted Bunn and they cheerfully and quickly sent 2 restrictor heads at no charge. I'm guessing that the reason they supplied 2 heads is that with smaller holes, it will become plugged-up more quickly; we'll see.
It's simple to change-out the head, just unscrew it with your fingers and screw the new one back in. And it did solve the problem at least for brewing 6 cups, as we haven't tried a full pot yet. However, it does slow-down the brewing process, taking about 5 1/2 minutes vs. 3. That in itself is no big deal since that's still fairly quick. But it does partially negate Bunn's premise on why a Bunn makes such good coffee - that the pre-heated water flows quickly through the filtered coffee grounds so as not to remain in the filter basket long enough for the grounds to make the coffee bitter. Seems to me that since the restricted spray head slows down the brewing process, water now stays in the grounds a little longer now. And although our coffee still tastes good, it was slightly better with the original spray head.
Sidenote: Bunn should make the restrictor spray head available as an optional component when ordering the coffee maker, depending on one's intended use of decaf and/or softened water. But if you feel that you will need it, I suggest that calling Bunn and requesting the restrictor head immediately after ordering the coffee maker; they required no proof of purchase and no product date code, only the model number "GRB". Phone 800-352-BUNN
In summary, if this coffee maker lasts a few years we'll be very happy. And if it doesn't, we may buy another one anyway :>)
