I bought my Bunn "Thermo Fresh" coffee pot about two years ago after losing custody of my regular Bunn coffee pot in a bad divorce.  (Yes, it was terrible!  Lost the espresso machine too!)  That's ok though--I upgraded to the Bunn thermal pot and LOVE it!  I even bought an extra carafe so I can brew iced tea and have coffee at the same time.

The thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot and fresh tasting for several hours--much longer than I thought it would.  It's dishwasher safe and comes out like new every time.

It does seem a bit expensive compared to what you'll find just anywhere, but this is a really durable long-lasting "forever" type appliance.  My mom just bought a new Bunn pot only because she was tired of the old one--it still worked after 10 years or so!  (This is why you have to fight for them in a divorce...unless you just want a newer model.)

These pots make barely any noise and do not sputter and spit like cheaper coffee pots.  They also spray water on the coffee grinds more like a shower instead of just dripping or dribbling onto the grinds, so you get full saturation and flavor from your coffee without it taking all day.  There's not so much backsplash onto the spray area either, so less mess to wipe off there.  Quite low maintenance actually, which I like.  You do need to make at least a half pot of coffee... but for just 2 cups why not use a French press & wait 4 minutes?  YUM!

Oh lord, make SURE you put in the grounds before the water! My husband bought this and he normally makes the coffee in it. If I'm home alone, I use the french press which I feel makes better quality coffee, but not in enough volume for two of us. Since I don't use it that often, I have a habit of setting it up like I do my pot at work - dump in the water, put in the grounds, press start.

On this machine though, water starts gushing through before you hit the front start button, which is stupid. Water and coffee grounds end up gushing all over the counter and floor, and you have to decide whether to brave sticking your hands in the hot running water and trying to fix it without burning yourself, or just to let the 10 cups of hot water spew all over your kitchen.

I also have an issue with the hot water chamber. I see a lot of people happy with how quickly you can get that first cup in the morning because the water's already hot, and my husband likes that feature. Environmentally though it makes no sense to use all that energy to keep the water hot all night just to save a couple minutes in the morning. It ought to have a timer built in so you can preset it to heat up 10 or 20 minutes before you wake up.

As for the coffee quality, like I said, I'm spoiled on the french press, and it's not as good as that - so I don't get the point of spending such an insane amount of money for a so-so cup of coffee that wastes so much energy.

Brew Performance
Nothing outstanding, nothing horrible.

Comments about Bunn 10-Cup Home Coffee Maker:

I have been through 2 of these in less than a year. The coffee keeps leaking out from the bottom. I will make a full pot and only half a pot will make and the other half will leak on my counter top. I thought it may of been a one time thing so I bought another one and they both only lasted 4-5 months due to the same issue. It was great when we first got it. It made coffee really fast but it doesn't last very long.

      this is very nice and i am very happy for have this my product is favorite thank you and i am so proud keeping and keeping get like this product i will buy every thing like this
      The first thing I noticed when I had a cup from the AeroPress was the taste, It makes the best espresso's in no time flat. Its flavor is amazing and the coffee never comes out too strong or too weak. the results are way better than a drip coffee maker. It is PERFECT for me. I love how fast it works. I'd recommend buying this over any of the other coffee devices.The cleanup is exceedingly simple and takes a minute. It takes me a lot of time to make coffee for a group. This isn't what you want for a large group since it makes one cup at a timeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

          Weather drinking coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or making some Cup of Noodles, this thing is ready to go immediately. Cleaning is a little more complicated then your $20 coffee makers but well worth it!

          Comments about Bunn 10-Cup Home Coffee Maker:

          After griping about buying such an expensive coffee maker, I agreed to pay for half with my boyfriend. I absolutely do not regret it! I drink coffee daily, and love this coffee maker. It holds hot water in the back, so it's ready to go whenever you want coffee. A word of caution - make sure to turn the heater OFF when it won't be used for a while, otherwise your coffee maker will overheat and be ruined. Otherwise, when using it every/every other day, no problems. It's super convenient and I would definitely buy it again.

          Comments about Bunn 10-Cup Home Coffee Maker:

          I have had this brand for about 4 years now. Every year it needs replacement. The current one was a replacement from the company for one that wouldn't turn on. Now in the morning I either get half a pot or a counter full of coffee. When I contacted the company they gave a few instructions than hasn't changed a thing about the way in which it brews. I am tired of cleaning up after it or having a half pot of disgusting coffee. Don't really think its the best pot for me. But when it brews properly the coffee is good and it brews quickly.

          Brew Performance
          it's either half a pot or a full counter of coffee. When it does brew the coffee is easy to prepare and it does make a nice HOT cup of coffee.

          Ease of Cleaning
          Pot cleans up quickly. Descaling is pretty easy too.

          Ease of Use
          When it works properly it's really a great pot that make nice HOT coffee..

          Design
          If there is any overflow it drips around the heating plate and finds it way all over the counter.

          Durability
          Shouldn't have to replace this pot on a yearly basis for the cost of the item

          Everything I wanted in a coffee maker

          Comments about Bunn 10-Cup Home Coffee Maker:

          I shopped around for quite a while before I decided which coffee maker I wanted to buy. With so many models coming with 10-million features, I just wanted something to make coffee, not launch the space shuttle.

          I finally came across the Bunn 10-Cup model, and I seriously couldn't be happier with this thing!

          With my last Mr. Coffee coffee maker, I had such a difficult time with my coffee not being hot enough. With this one, however, it's always the perfect temperature. Amazingly enough, this model also keeps my coffee in the pot hot for an extremely long time. I love that! There's nothing worse than having your second cup of coffee be cold.

          Overall, I'm very impressed with this Bunn coffee maker. It makes a delicious, non-complicated cup of coffee.

          If don't need a fancy, 50-step cup of coffee, then this is the perfect coffee maker for that!

          Also, I love that this one is so easy to clean. It only takes me a few minutes to clean it, which is something I really appreciate in a coffee maker.

          Fast and Fresh Every Morning

          Comments about Bunn 10-Cup Home Coffee Maker:

          After owning a previous Bunn coffeemaker for twelve years, I passed it on to my son to use in his new apartment and replaced it with this model. I am very pleased with this coffee maker and expect to get years of service from it. The brew time is approximately five minutes and the coffee is delicious. I know from previous experience that customer service from the Bunn company is stellar. I needed a replacement part, and it was shipped, free of charge, within 48 hours.

          Brew Performance
          Not only is the brewing process extremely fast, the end product is consistent and delicious.

          Ease of Cleaning
          A small snake is included. I use it monthly to clean the innards of the brewer and then run a cycle of white vinegar, followed by two cycles of water.

          Ease of Use
          There is nothing to it. Fill the basket with fresh coffee grounds and pour a pot of water. Five minutes later-enjoy.

          Design
          This is my only complaint with this coffee maker. The spout of the carafe could be better designed. If I pour too quickly I end up with coffee on the counter.

          Durability
          Because of my experience with my previous Bunn, I expect many years of use,
