NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Oblo by KRUPS Coffee Capsule M&hellip by Krups
2.0 out of 5 stars Over priced novelty, 16 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've wanted a pod machine for a while now, but always put it off due to the layout cost of the unit and ongoing cost of refills.

Having now tried one, I'm glad I never bothered (though I'm not saying they're ALL a let down of course - I can only go by this one)

Excellent - but using it was difficult for him because it was too big for his hand, and - again - the novelty wore off because of that.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I usually enjoy testing the products I get sent, as often they are items I wouldnt explicitly buy - but "always quite fancied"

This mixer/ grinder/ blender was one such item, where the idea of putting away my single function devices and swapping out for an all in one was very exciting...

I'll quickly get the good points out of the way: The red colour is lovely. Vibrant, cheery and bright.
It looks very "pro".

Thats it.
As for the rest of it; The blender is adequate for liquids, but terrible for anything too chunky or dry - it just pushes the contents around and nothing more. As mentioned, liquids it deals with very well (soups/… Read more
