I use this exact model at work. :) For the price point you can't beat it. It brews nice and fast. This brewer can handle continuous use if you need it. We only use it for 3-4 pots a day. My work has extremely hard water and this machine has only needed 1 descale in the last 2 years. I am a manual pourover drinker but if I were to get a commercial machine this model would be it for me.
Pros - Fast brewing (2L in about 4min) - Fast heat up time (about 20min) - Makes an exceptional brew (needs a finer grind) - Can handle continuous use - Can stay on continuously - $250 new! Ridiculously cheap for a commercial drip machine
Cons - If not used for more than 12 hours the volume in the boiler goes down quickly. (not really a con) - No ON/ OFF switch (I just hooked up a power bar) - Requires manual descale (You can run Descal through it but rinsing is endless due to reservoir size) - Small footprint doesn't allow for a gravity air pot.. was hoping to use a Zojirushi with it when we acquired it but the filter cone is too low for it.
