Oh how I will miss coffee... :(
Today, my Bunn coffee maker caught on fire. True story. A big flash, some smoke.... it was crazy and I am SO glad I was right there doing dishes when it happened so I could unplug it quickly.
We've had this coffee maker for years, and we've always liked it. I was sad to see it go, so a few minutes ago I sat down to the computer and put the model (GR10W) into Google so that I could find a new one to replace it. To my shock and horror the first thing that came up was a recall. Yes indeed, back in 2005 Bunn recalled our model of coffee maker because it was a firehazard. Well, nice to know NOW.
|RIP BUNN Coffee Maker... we'll miss you even though you tried to catch us on fire.|
I'm disappointed we didn't know our product was recalled...but I guess we just didn't get the memo?
Well, my husband tried to take it apart to see what he could see. Let me tell you... you do NOT want to see the inside of the water holding tank after 7 years of using it! There was a TON of calcium/mineral build up- it was so gross. We will now be replacing our coffee maker more often. *sigh* I will miss my super fast coffee maker...but I am more glad I was in the right place at the right time and we still have our house and family!
