Does good for the value
Saw a few people say it took 8 min to brew...mine took about 3 min. Someone else posted they couldn't get it to turn on...have to admit, the push button switch takes some effort & you need to hold onto the unit when turning it on; but once I learned the proper touch, it turns on without probs. Will automatically turn off after you've brewed. Another posted you could use grounds or pods...you can't use pods, because it doesn't have the puncture pieces to puncture the pod. If you open the pod & pour it into the reusable filter, then I'd say yes, you can use pods. Since it's light weight, you need to use a small cup, or it will tip forward. For a quick cup of "Joe" before I leave for work, it's more than adequate for me. It's not a Keurig, so don't expect it to perform like your Keurig or expect it to be of the same quality of one. For the price, it does a good job.

Would give zero stars if I could.
The item flat out just did not work right out of the box. Would not turn on. Pushing the button does nothing. I followed all instructions, even waiting a long time before pushing the start button again. Nothing worked, it would not turn on. Waste of money and at my advanced age, it's a real hassle to return something. Plus with shipping rates being so high, not much sense in sending it back. VERY DISAPPOINTED in Haband for even carrying this worthless item!!

Don't waste your money
I do not recommend this item.
First, it's very slow to brew. It takes 8 minutes to brew one cup. It another person wants a cup also, you have to wait 15 minutes for the heating element to cool off enough before you can brew a 2nd cup. When it brews the 2nd cup, it abruptly stops after brewing just half a cup. Very annoying. I'm giving this item 2 stars, only because it does work, just not very well.
I stopped using it after 3 days and went back to my old 12 cup maker.

Great deal on a great little coffee maker. Perfect for early morning when you don't want to measure and fiddle. Can use grounds or pods, pops out a single cup serving in no time at all. Great value for the price. I love mine. Please note that the cup in the picture is NOT included.
