How To Keep Bunn Coffee Maker Pot From Overflowing 

 When it comes to quality, Bunn doesn’t know the meaning of word compromise. This is the reason Bunn is dominating the market. They don’t just set the bars, they are the bars! Whether they have to make commercial coffee makers or home coffee makers, discrimination doesn’t come in the way.  

 Although we can’t raise questions about the quality that Bunn provide. But there is one problem that almost everyone face. And that problem is known as overflow. We don’t how to keep our coffee makers pot from overflowing. Well, you don’t know till yet, but you will know now! 

 Overflow is one of the worst feelings someone can get. Well, who like the watery mess of hot water and some crazy wasted grinds? No one. You can’t just start your coffee maker pot and stand over there all the time to look after it.  

 

Let us first discuss who can possibly the culprits because of whom your coffee maker pot overflow. These little naughty fellows can be clogged filter, a weak spot, or even the size of your coffee grinds. Well, the Satan’s Minions are at work again! 

 

The basic thing that you can do to prevent your coffee maker from overflowing is the preventative maintenance. You should give your coffee maker a good cleaning. Keeping coffee maker just like new is not a bad idea! The best way to clean your coffee maker is the easiest way possible! Empty the machine and add vinegar and cold water to the ratio of 1:2. Now start the brewing process. After this, brew 2 to 3 more times just to make sure that the vinegar taste and its smell is gone. Now that your coffee maker is clean, its time to wash the brew basket. The basket should remain clean all the time as the water flows from it. And if the water will not flow at the good rate, your coffee maker will overflow.  

 

If your pot is still flowing then now is the time to point the finger at the filter. This guy tried hard enough to hide but no! You can’t hide from us! During the brewing process, some filters collapse on themselves. If your filter can’t stick with the walls of the machine than you need to buy a large size filter for it. Another thing you can do is that you can purchase reusable coffee filters. They are very good at maintaining their size. But you have to keep one thing in your mind that these filters require a lot of cleaning, that too daily 

 

There are no technical faults in a Bunn brewer, the company is all about great brewers, some brewers overflow some leak not because the manufacturers have done some compromise but because we do not maintain them properly, maintenance is very important if you wish to use the same brewer for the next 20 years and more, cleaning does not take much time after every use wipe it after every 3 to 4 months give it deep cleaning. 

Basics of a Straight Razor 

  Equipment Required 

when a beginner starts using a cutthroat it is daunting figuring out what all is needed, a lot of things go around in our mind strops? honing stones? brushes? 

when I started my journey of using a barber’s razor, I did not want to spend a lot of money so everything that I purchased was cheap and guess what by buying all the cheap equipment I wasted a lot of money with two to three weeks my razor died, buying cheap straight razor was my biggest mistake as straight razors are more like an investment. 

 

Now that I know what you would require on day 50 and on day 1 I m going to help make your journey of straight razor better with a luxurious shave. 

Equipment that you would require on day one and on day 50 as well – THE ESSENTIAL ONES 

The obvious – Cutthroat 

Strop of leather- now this you would need before each and every use. 

Shaving cream or a shaving soap – you would thank me later a cream or a shaving soap is a must so that you do not end up getting a lot of cuts, these shaving soaps, and cream moisturize your skin 

Shaving Brush- this is a must and it depends on what kind of cream or soap you are using, it helps in making a barrier between the sharp blade and your smooth skin. 

Things you would require on day 50 – THE LONG RUN EQUIPMENT 

The only equipment that you would require in the long term is a Honing stone, why do you need it? after ever 8th month or maximum after ever 12th month you would require resharpening and without honing stone you cant do so in the beginning you do not need to buy it you can buy it later on. 

Why is Stropping done? 

You have to strop your straight razor before each use to align the edge of the razor’s blade. Every time the straight razor will touch your face, you will feel the result of your stropping – shaving with a sharp razor means you will enjoy shaving more and get higher quality results. 

Before every use, you actually need to strop your razor so that the edges are aligned and the result is what you would feel on your face when you would shave which means the result would be better quality vise and you would even enjoy shaving. 

Now you need to know why a strop is made up of leather and fabric, one side is made up of leather and one is made up of fabric, the fabric one is coarser which actually removes things on your razor which can damage the leather side and the leather does the rest as it is soft.  

 

Before shaving, you must prepare your skin, you can either take shower with hot water, wash your face with hot water or simply soak your towel in hot water and then hold it on your skin.
