Maintenance BUNN MCU:

This coffee brewer uses an internal hot water tank to heat the fresh water. You need to run a few rinse cycles by flushing and refilling this tank a few times to get rid of the horrible burnt plastic smell. You need to rinse the pod drawer after every use. To keep the outside of this coffee maker clean, occasional wiping in every once in a while with a mild no citrus soap and water with a damp cloth would be good. Deep cleaning the brewer every once in a while to clean the water deposits is necessary as the deposit impairs the brewing system of this machine. Mineral deposits, loose coffee and tea granules can clog the spray head. You just have to rinse it with a mild detergent and water to get rid of the dirt.

The MCU coffee maker comes with a two-year replacement warranty which promises to cover any faulty unit for two years, which is certainly a good deal.

Conclusion:

The BUNN MCU Single Cup Multi-Use Home Coffee Brewer is the most versatile one and yet very simple. This coffee maker can make almost everything and the taste is as good as any expensive brewer. If you are looking for versatility in your kitchen, this coffee maker is the one for you.
