Specifications wise, the BUNN 13300.0003 VP17-3SS3L Pourover Commercial Coffee Brewer is a very close but slightly advanced cousin of the BUNN 13300.0001 VP17-1SS Pourover Coffee Brewer. The former has three warmers while its predecessor was equipped with just one. So while earlier you could keep just one extra pot of coffee ready, the advanced model allows you to prepare two pots and keep them on standby on the warmers. At 3.8 gallons an hour, the coffee output is the same for both variants of this industrial machine.
At 24 pounds, the BUNN 13300.0003 VP17-3SS3L Pourover Commercial Coffee Brewer is one sturdy machine and you will surely need a hand to move it around. However, the stainless steel components that add to the machine’s weight also makes it a sturdy equipment that can perform even under heavy work load.
If you are a larger food outlet with countless consumers to serve at a time, this is definitely the best option for you. The taste of the coffee will not be of very superior quality and coffee connoisseurs are most likely to grade it at around seven out of ten, it will definitely work for the executive on his way to work who wants to have his coffee on the move and prefers it to be delivered without delay. With the machine being able to produce about 12 cups of coffee in approximately three minutes, it should not be tough for you to meet the demand.
The carafes are fitted with Bunn’s trademark SplashGard technology that prevent the hot beverage from spilling out of the containers and protects your hands from accidental burns or scalds. This is a major positive aspect of Bunn’s coffee makers because the carafes can get pretty heavy when they are full. However, the Splash Gard ensures that no coffee spills out until you turn the carafe completely upside down.
Given that it is a Bunn product, the appliance is sure to be a sturdy one and like most similar devices produced by the company, does not churn out a brew of espresso-like perfection due to the low pressure. However, what it lacks somewhat in quality, it more than makes up for in quality, speed, durability and efficiency.
With regular maintenance, cleaning and descaling the steel interiors, the device should run for several years unhindered. Some users claimed to have their ones functioning for almost twenty years.
