      I'm not sure about the other reviewers who had trouble with their machines, but I love this little coffeemaker. It is very small and would travel anywhere easily. It brews a perfect cup of coffee and then shuts itself off automatically. What more could you ask for? It uses regular coffee and some of the "pods" that are available on the market. I had luck using the pods/cups that had a cup-like top and a soft bottom (almost like a tea bag). The one I tried was from Chock-full-o-nuts. All I did was peel the cover off of the lid and then drop the pod inside of the reusable filter basket. It worked like a charm. I would not try a regular K-cup, only because the machine has no way to pierce the cup to get the coffee out of it. A great little coffeemaker; give it a try!

      Meets all my criteria

      I'm very fussy about everything having to do with my coffee, both in the morning and all thru the day. This little wonder qualified in every way. It fits most cups (even has a little cup extender that snaps onto the bottom), doesn't have an annoying carafe or travel cup that must hit some lever or else the coffee doesn't flow, doesn't have the warming plate either, doesn't need cleaning (I use regular Mr. Coffee filters and kinda press them into the cup so I can toss the grounds into the wastebasket), doesn't use those expensive K cups so I can drink my Bustelo and makes a full cup (just barely but fine for me (any more and the coffee gets cold before I finish drinking it). I guess the cons would be that it is a bit slow but that's okay with me. I'm slow in the morning as well. This tiny, inexpensive pot has completely replaced that stupid Keurig I struggled with for years and I get better coffee!.

      It's Ok

      First of all, before you even make your first cup, make sure to run it at least twice with just water. Otherwise you will get a strong plastic funny taste on your coffee. With that said, here's my review: It's a nice small coffee maker. Takes about 8 minutes to brew a cup. I gave it 3 stars only because after running it twice with just water and 5 coffee cups later, I still get a funny taste on it although not as strong as the first time. You will smell a strong plastic chemical odor every time you brew a cup. Not sure if it will eventually go away with time. Other than that, it's a nice coffee maker perfect for your work desk. Hope this helps.

      Was searching for this without knowing it, but sure am glad to find it. I was using a 20oz press for years because nobody made a decent single-cup machine. I found this gem while searching for a reliable small serving water heating appliance. Sure, there's that "single brew system", but it's based on wasteful, plastic, one-use vessels. With this brewer, I just use my bulk coffee grounds like always and a steaming mug is ready in a few minutes. With a durable basket, no filter is ever needed. If you like, you can peel open one of those pods and brew it just the same. This one gadget has completely changed my morning game, and for the better.

      This single cup coffee maker is a good value. It appears to take the single cup ready made coffee serving containers that are popular nowadays - I can't confirm that as I grind our our whole beans. The coffee maker does a good job making a single large cup of coffee. The only negative comment I would make is that the brewing process is a little slow compared to the single serve B&D unit we related this one with. Other than that we would purchase this unit again.

      This coffee pot is much smaller than it looked in the picture. About half the size of a Keurig mini. The unit comes with a re-usable filter which is what I wanted. The drip is VERY slow on this unit, it took much longer than I expected to make a cup of coffee. Also be careful, the unit is so small that you will barely be able to get a normal size coffee mug in place. Other than the slow drip, it gets the job done and makes a decent cup of coffee.

      Picked it up for my son in law who's the only regular coffee drinker in the house. It gets plenty hot, brews good coffee and the compatibility with regular grounds saves a lot of money. Note, like most single cup machines you don't have enough height to brew directly into oversize mugs. It's not a problem for me, but if you want to brew directly into a travel cup this machine isn't what you need.

      Don't be tempted by the price! This machine never worked properly, is cheaply made, and should be avoided. If you want a one cup maker that uses grounds and pods, there are many out there for a few dollars more that are much better quality. And, the lack of any real instructions or owner's manual made it twice as hard. I returned mine within days. Save your money!
