Check with your AHJ (Plumbing inspector), not all locations will accept primeless cements
one steps are not the best, the primer cleans and softens the pipe for the glue, and the glue , solvent welds the pipe together, dipping the brush that cleans the dirt and junk from the pipe just contaminates the entire can in the one step stuff...most codes dont allow it..
05.16.2 Solvent cementing. Joint surfaces shall be clean and free from moisture, and an approved primer shall be applied. Solvent cement, orange in color and conforming to ASTM F 493, shall be applied to all joint surfaces. The joint shall be made while the cement is wet, and in accordance with ASTM D 2846 or ASTM F 493. Solvent-cement joints shall be permitted above or below ground.Exception: A primer is not required where all of the following conditions apply:
1. The solvent cement used is third-party certified as conforming to ASTM F 493.
2. The solvent cement used is yellow in color.
3. The solvent cement is used only for joining 1/2 inch ( 12.7 mm) through 2 inch (51 mm) diameter CPVC pipe and fittings.
4. The CPVC pipe and fittings are manufactured in accordance with ASTM D 2846.

IPC allows one step for CPVC if the above is true.

I always use primer with one step glue, it's helps clean and bond the pipe
