Works with the Chulux brewer, so if you have that, you need this

I'll be 100%
I'm a cheapass.
I got the Chulux single cup brewer. It's not perfect. I got these cups because they're by the Chulux company, ostensibly for use with the coffee maker. When it comes to reusable cups and single cup brewers, it can be a crapshoot. I've heard of reusable cups not working in certain brewers.
These reusable cups do work in the Chulux single cup brewer.
The price isn't the best on Amazon, but it's better than buying a set of reusable filters without the assurance they'll work.
I like that there are two colors. I'm sure some people use these to mark regular vs decaf coffee, or flavored vs unflavored coffee. I try to alternate the colors so I know whether a given reusable cup is full of old grinds (as I'm a lazy bastard who doesn't empty them out as soon as I should) or new grinds.
I love that they're dishwasher safe.
The one thing that would make this product perfect is if the sealing ring design was better. Each cup has a black rubber band style sealing ring. I've had one come off and I almost didn't notice. If you aren't careful and the ring is loose, it could end up in the trash when you empty out the reusable cups.
Because there's a poking thing on the cap, which digs into the grounds, you cannot fill the cup up all the way. I use a K-cup measuring cup and funnel combination device called Perfect Pod. It measures out the perfect amount for these cups, but, leaves no room for the poking thing on the cap. If you use a similar type of scoop, just remember to leave space for the poking thing, or else you will get grounds everywhere.
