Bunn NHBX-B Problem Update and How to Clean The Rocker Switch

Bunn NHBX-B Problem Update and How to Clean The Rocker Switch

My Bunn NHBX-B coffee maker has been giving me problems for awhile. As I wrote about early last month, hot water poured out regardless if the lid was in the proper position or not. Bunn’s customer service was responsive, and they attempted to help over email. They told me to remove the lid and make […]

Problem With Bunn NHBX-B Coffee Maker

Problem With Bunn NHBX-B Coffee Maker

I’ve owned my Bunn NHBX-B drip coffee maker for about eighteen months. The NHBX makes great coffee, but filling it with water is a bit weird. You have to swivel the lid back to pour water into the first reservoir. When you swivel the lid forward, it releases the water in the primary, heated chamber. […]

Krups GVX-1 Burr Coffee Grinder Review

Krups GVX-1 Burr Coffee Grinder Review

I review the Krups GVX burr coffee grinder. It is a great value at $40 from Costco, and a decent grinder even at the more common $50 mark. It has a problem with beans not falling into the grinder but is otherwise a good unit.

Thermos King Stainless Steel Insulated Beverage Bottle Review

Thermos King Stainless Steel Insulated Beverage Bottle Review

I review the Thermos King stainless steel insulate travel bottle. It keeps coffee hot enough to drink for almost nine hours if you keep the bottle capped. The King will also do its job if you drink one ten ounce cup every half hour.

Great Bunn Customer Service Regarding Deliming Tool

Great Bunn Customer Service Regarding Deliming Tool

I’ve had my Bunn NHBX drip coffee maker for almost fifteen months now. We lived in Virginia the first nine months we owned it, and it operated flawlessly.

T-Fal Vitesses 1.7L Variable Temperature Electric Kettle Review

T-Fal Vitesses 1.7L Variable Temperature Electric Kettle Review

At about $40, the high capacity T-Fal Vitesses is a strong performer. Out of the three variable temperature kettles I’ve tested, it was the fastest to heat 32 ounces to 200°F. Its poor control layout and wonky temperature range adjustment are major detractors. People who are aesthetically minded may dislike the styling and plastic construction to the point where they look elsewhere.
