About - Bunn STX

The Bunn STX is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker models like the STX are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Brew performance:
The ability to reach 195° to 205° F for five or six minutes, the industry standard for optimal brewing.

Convenience:
Reflects ease of filling the reservoir, placing the filter, gauging the amount of coffee remaining, and cleaning up. It also reflects how clear we judged the controls.

Carafe handling:
Covers handle comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance of a full carafe, and how easy it was to empty the last liquid. Models with no score here brew into single-serve cups or are brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

Comment:
Bunn stands behind their product. First, they replaced a carafe that didn't live up to what we expected. Then, after we used ours for over 5 years, they replaced the entire pot because the plastic by the fill crumbled due to temperature. We've never seen any manufacturer who offers this type of guarantee. We'd become tired of replacing a pot every six months, without even an I'm sorry for your loss!, from any of the other manufacturers. Add to this the fact the coffee tastes great! A 39 rating? Maybe CR should revisit their rating system and add things that matter, like the way the company protects the owners. That seems a lot more important than bells and whistles.

Comment:
I have owned only 3 coffee makers in the past 30 years--all Bunns. I won't buy anything else. Expensive but divide the cost over 10 years--not bad.

Comment:
Brews a great pot of coffee in about 3 minutes. After the initial heating cycle, it uses low wattage to maintain water temperature. New carafe design dosen't dribble, and keeps the coffee hot longer. The previous one lasted almost 10 years. It's a little pricey, but I think its worth every penny.
