Bun 10 Cup Coffee Maker - Terrible



I paid about $80 on sale for a bun 10-cup coffee maker. We have the professional Bun 2 pot coffee maker at the church and it is fast and wonderful. I was tired of my old one & bought this expensive one. It overflows when you use more than 6 spoons of coffee with the full pot. If I make it with 8 cups and just under the 6 spoons, it's ok, but when I have company & want more, I have a huge mess every time.

More Information:

I had a DeLonghi before this that made coffee and espresso. I'm now of the opinion that the cheaper, regular coffee makers are the way to go. The espresso stopped coming through and eventually the milk frother stopped working too! Plain, inexpensive coffee makers are just fine.

    I'm on my 3rd Bunn coffee maker (over the past 15 years). Love it. The coffee is ready in about 2 minutes (or less). When I have company I use a coffee thermos to pour the first pot in and quickly brew another. - by SLICKCAT1
  • As long as you are making small pots of coffee or you like your coffee pretty weak, it will work just fine. The only other complaint I have - and I was aware of this when I bought it - is there is no 'interrupt' on it, so you have to wait for it to finish. I thought it wouldn't bother me & perhaps that was just something that would break down on cheap pots, but I do wish I had that feature. - by REVELATIONGIRL
  • I have a Bunn 10 cup coffee maker (that we bought at Walmart... paid around 100 for it) and we love it... but we only put about 3 rounded spoonfuls of coffee in it and we love it... sorry you don't like yours! - by TRACYBIRD411
