Coffee is OK, but...
I bought this coffee maker thinking it would make coffee. Well, it does, but that's all it does. If it didn't have a digital clock and the ability to program the coffee makes when to come on, then I would be satisfied. Unfortunately the digital components for the clock have a serious problem.
The first unit I had was consistent. After setting the clock it was between 35 and 55 minutes off after 24 hours. I took the first unit back and got a second one, thinking I had got a "lemon." Nope!!! The second one is just as bad.
I will be returning it and looking for another brand.

These are hit or miss. I've had several of these, and when I get one that works and lasts awhile, it makes good coffee with little effort. I've never had one last a full year, either the hotplate dies or the water pump stops working. The pump on the one I have now died a while ago, but the hotplate still works, so I heat my own water on the stove and pour it over the grounds. DO NOT EVER clean using their recommendation, you will have water/vinegar all over your kitchen counter, cupboards, carpet, etc. The vinegar eats the rubber seals or tubing or something. I've made this mistake 2-3 times (hard-headed I guess). I'd never pay full price for these, they just aren't worth it.

problem with internal rubber hose
We purchased a CH Series Mr. Coffee coffee maker which looks to be the predecessor for the CG model. The coffee maker worked well for about two years but then water started to leak from underneath the coffee maker. When I disassembled the machine to see if I could fix the problem, I discovered that the rubber supply house (which transfers water from the fill tank to the brewer) had rotted and cracked. The hose crumbled in my hand when I took it off. More concerning, the hose had a petroleum smell to it which is very surprising after two years of use with only clear water running through the hose. We replaced our Mr. Coffee maker with a Cuisinart coffee maker – so far no complaints with the Cuisinart.

Good flavored coffee
We have had this coffee maker for several years, and even though it is a basic model, it works wonderful and gives "full flavor" to coffee. And, we also have found that it uses less coffee grounds.

I bought this coffee maker in May. Here it is July and it is no longer working. I hope I can find my receipt because it is definitely going back.

Makes good coffee BUT problem with warmer plate
I purchased this pot August 2015..replacing a Cuisinart..it makes good coffee BUT within months the finish starting wearing off warmer plate/heating element. I only clean it with soap and water..no harsh abrasives..so obviously coating is defective.
It really looks horrible..will have to replace the unit. Have been looking at other makers and Mr.Coffee makers..but not sure yet what I should replace it with..
