I've used this Bunn over a year now. No reliability issues at all. The stand-out feature is the ability to brew any coffee, tea, hot cocoa etc - whether loose grounds, K-Cups, pods etc. The other tested coffee makers are limited to one brand. And this Bunn can be upgraded everytime a new pod style comes out. Love it.

Comment:
After two Keurig's failed, I though I would try something different BUNN used to be a reliable name brand but I now have my doubts. This coffee maker lasted about 7 months and then failed. I followed cleaning instructions to the letter but it still didn't last. <br />I won't buy another.

I was excited to receive the Bunn MCU for Christmas. It brewed a great cup of coffee with nice crème... for about 9 months. After that the grounds in the drawer were soupy - the machine was no longer extracting the water. I cleaned the machine regularly but still had this problem. I called Bunn - they replaced the unit. The second unit worked well for about 3 weeks. Water was 165, and the grounds were soupy. I called again. Another unit was sent to me. I was thrilled to have the machine working the way it was supposed to be working. After 4 weeks, I began having the same problem. Check valves were replaced, I had deep cleaned (vinegar) the machine, I verified that the seal was properly reinserted, tried a different drawer and still had the same result. Once again I contacted Bunn. Natasha offered to replace the unit again. I declined. I have had 3 Bunn coffee makers since 1979. I am sold on the quality of these machines. However, I cannot in good conscience recommend the MCU to anyone. I can get the same flavor making one cup of coffee at a time using my Bunn coffee maker. It's just not as convenient.
