Where to start. The Nespresso Pixie by far the best kitchen "Gadget" I have ever bought. I have had coffee machines in the past including Tassimo and Dulce Gusto and the coffee produced has been disspointing to say the least. The quality of the Coffee produced by Nespresso is as good as any I have had from swanky coffee shops (including in Italy!).

Setting the Pixie up is a doddle. From unpacking to being able to enjoy your first cup of coffee will take less than 5 minutes. Operating the device could be done by a 3 year old (if it was safe to let them near hot liquids!). Pop your Nespresso pod in the slot, place your cup under the spout and press either the Espresso or Lungo button and have your tasty cup of coffe produced in a few seconds.

The used pods are stored in the machine (up to ten) so no need to tidy up straight away - just proceed to enjoying a lovely cup of coffee.

You can adjust the volume of coffee produced simply by pressing and holding the relevant button until you have reached the desired fill level. This volume is then remembered by the machine for future use. The standard settings are fine for espresso cups and small coffee cups and operate on a one touch and leave basis.

The range of coffee types produced by Nespresso is quite mind boggling, with 16 different types as standard and special editions released occasionally. The machine came with a stater pack which had one of each of the standard blends. A first from my experiences too, is that even the decaff varieties taste good.

The Pixie is nice and compact so does not take up half your kitchen worktop. There is also an integrated cable tidy to hide away any excess power lead.

Any downsides - only one. The machine is quite noisy, but it is a small price to pay as the noise is the pump which creates the high pressure needed to make the best espresso.

Buy this machine. You will not be dissapointed if you like coffee.

The Nespresso system is an excellent way to get an excellent cup of coffee.
Great tasting, no mess and very fast.
This is better than previous standard machines, warms up faster and has a smaller footprint, and auto off.
You can also move the cup support so that you can use a larger "mug" type cup.
I don't always want an espresso and I therefore top up a larger cup and then add cold milk.
Sometimes using two capsules for the extra strength.I couldn't do that with previous machines easily.
Top tip - if you want a really hot coffee use hot water in the tank and also warm your cup - makes a hell of a difference.

I bought this to replace an ageing Krups Essenza model and I couldn't be more pleased.

Pros
- It warms up in 25 seconds (half the time of our last machine)
- The drip tray lifts up, so larger cups or mugs can be accommodated more easily
- It takes up slightly less space in the kitchen (than the last machine).
- I am also very pleased with the auto-power off feature. If left unattended (or forgotten) it switches itself off after 9 minutes. I confess I had a bad habit of leaving the old machine switched on when I was distracted with other things, so this is a particular bonus for me.

Con
- The water tank only holds 0.7 litres. This is less than the last model, but good enough. When the tank runs low, red lights show by the espresso dispenser, so you know to refill before you try to make your drink.

I've had this machine two months now, and I am very pleased with it.

Product arrived within 36 hours of my order and was packed securley. This machine is very easy to set up - there are detailed instructions to follow included in the user manual. It took less than 5 minutes. There are 16 capsules included in the box which helps establish your preferences for the various types of coffee available. I have only used this machine a few times but it delivers great tasting coffee in seconds. Very compact design which is great for smaller kitchens and for people like me that just need a caffine boast first thing in the morning and do not necessarily want their coffee machine to be a key feature of their kitchen. Machine looks great too.

I brought this as a christmas present last year for my partner and have ended up using it myself daily it is so good.

Very easy to set up for the first time just run a few cups of water through to clean it out. Comes with a pack of sample capsules so you can choose which are your favourite varieties. The machine makes espresso (short) 40ml or lungo (long) 110ml coffee and these amounts are pre programmed from the factory. You can also adjust the volume for each yourself by holding the button down and it will remember the amount for subsequent uses.

The machine uses the proprietary Nespresso capsule system and they are only officially available from the online Nespresso club or a "boutique". I recommend avoiding buying from other places as you cannot guarantee how old the capsules are as they only last 12 months also many places such as ebay are more expensive than through Nespresso. There are around 12 varieties to choose from including Ristretto, Espresso and Lungo types. If your looking to make a large mug of coffee you will need to make an espresso and then add hot water afterwards.

The coffee produced by the machine is excellent and better than most coffee shops and has a great crema layer on top. It has the advantage of being consistant every time and is easy to clean compared to a traditional espresso machine.

I recommend choosing the pixie in a colour rather than the boring Titanium I purchased however it does feel sturdy and well made. It is small and would fit in any kitchen or office. Could be taken on holiday if staying in a caravan or boat etc.

Only negative points would be the unmarked on/off switch which almost seems hidden and the water tank which is awkward to put back into place sometimes. Overall excellent coffee machine and would recommend to friends.
