Reviews around plate (4.57 of 5)

  • That is workable but it also has no warming plate to keep the coffee warm after brewing and the thermos does not keep the coffee hot
  • No clock, no timer, no "sneak a cup" feature, no hot plate to roast the life right out of the brew, just a solid coffee maker that brews a really good pot of coffee
  • The new unit is noticeably lighter, the bottom plate is flimsy and the filter holder is flimsy and not finished in stainless steel like the old one
  • My husband actually burnt himself as it poured all over him.
  • You do not have to keep a hot plate on to keep the coffee warm.

Reviews around product (4.34 of 5)

  • I would recommend this product to anyone who wants an excellent coffee maker
  • I can't even begin to express how worthless and insane this product is
  • Bunn makes a good commercial product, but I didn't like this because first of all, it came damaged in shipping; but what I really didn't like, is that you have to leave it on ALL the time!!!
  • This is a great product and the coffee taste is spot on
  • I own this product also and would recommend it for anyone

Reviews around brew (4.33 of 5)

  • No matter how finely I ground the coffee or added, the brew was way too weak.
  • Only criticism is, if you want a slightly slower brew to let the grinds "bloom", you have to let it flow for 30 seconds, open the top to stop it, wait a minute or so, and then close it
  • Lightning fast brew times, coffee stays hot for hours, and you don't have to remember to turn off the heat to the carafe
  • In the morning we dump out the hot water from the carafe and brew with the cold water.
  • I love the fast brewing time, the temperature is hot and the carafe keeps it that way for hours

Reviews around machine (3.99 of 5)

  • This machine is the worst machine that I have ever purchased
  • The water chamber always keeps the water hot so this machine would not be ideal for casual coffee drinkers.
  • The machine makes excellent coffee and works as advertised.
  • The Bunn BTX-B is a must buy if you drink a lot of coffee and want a fast brewing machine.

Reviews around flow (1.95 of 5)

  • To solve the problem, you have to actually order another part from Bunn that restricts the flow of water (you can get around this by wetting the filter prior to
  • We contacted the company and a part was shipped to us immediately to slow the flow of water to the filter.
  • I also enjoy the fast brewing time, even with the a restrictive value installed to slow the flow down to prevent overflow.
  • and they sent me two replacement spray heads(free)that slowed the water flow and eliminated the mess

Reviews around coffee grind (1.29 of 5)

  • If you use the smaller filters the coffee grinds will float over into pot and could plug unit if pot is not rinsed well
  • I think we had to increase the amount of coffee grinds we use though.

  • It leaks water from front of basket the coffee grinds float over the basket
  • Doesn't keep coffee quite as hot as I like it.

Reviews around overflow (1.00 of 5)

  • Not this one - no leaks at all, no overflow of the basket or filter
  • This works much better for me as it's resulted in never having any overflow from the filter basket (or grinds in my cofee!
  • For us, this means grinding more coarsely (to med-coarse from med-fine) and grinding for ~3/4 of a pot (to limit the grind overflow in the basket), using water for ~6 cups (to keep the strength high and prevent carafe overflow) and using only Bunn filters
  • This has a design defect that causes water to flow through too fast and the filter is overwhelmed causing overflow, including all over the kitchen counter.
  • Even though we have made more per pot, the overflow of the "Bunn" filter dumped too many grounds into the pot.
