Nesco CU-30 Professional Coffee Urn is an easy way to give coffee to the masses without running your own coffee shop. Many reviewers used this coffee urn for large family gatherings, church events, or other community events. The appeal for this coffee urn is its simplicity. This is an easy appliance to use. Simply add coffee and water and flip the switch. The coffee urn brews large amounts of coffee and keeps everything steaming hot. As easy it is to use, it is just as easy to clean. The stainless steel prevents the coffee from sticking around permanently and highlights the spots to scrub.
To some, however, Nesco's Professional Coffee Urn was too simplistic. Some were hoping to adjust the temperature setting. Others did not want to brew coffee; instead, they simply wanted to keep liquids warm. But Nesco's CU-30 only has one option; on or off. Furthermore, the quality of this coffee urn has come into question by some reviewers. According to some reviews, the coffee urn lasted only a few months before parts started deteriorating; a hose started leaking or the heating component lost its power.
Perhaps the driving factor in your purchase decision depends on your needs. If you do not expect to entertain large amounts of people often, then the Nesco CU-30 Professional Coffee Urn may be the right choice. It is a cheap and simple appliance that does exactly what you expect, brew hot coffee. If you intend on making large amounts of coffee on a daily basis, then perhaps it may be better to search for a more intricate coffee urn.
