Mr. Coffee® Simple Brew 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker is rated 3.25 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Columbian Roulette 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a Quality Product I owned this model for a number of years and it made a pot a day for each of those years. It finally went out and I replaced it with the same model. It made two pot and then the heat element failed. Though it was a fluke. Returned it for another one of same model. 3 months down the road and the same issue happened this morning. Time to move to a different brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No backlight on clock Just bought the unit yesterday. Made a good pot of coffee this morning. The problem is with the clock! With no back light the black digits are almost unreadable! Did not do a delay brew because I could not see display. Customer service very helpful, but stated it does not have a back light. I will be returning it for something that has a more visible display.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problem This is the second coffee maker of this model that we have owned. They make great coffee. However, the white plastic materials inside and especially, the white plastic lid on the urn, turns coffee stained within a few days and cannot be removed with dishwashing soap, liquid soap, etc. even using a brush. That is not appropriate with an appliance this new.
