In many ways this is a well thought out answer to the problem of dispensing a range of capsule flavours. The case is neatly designed and the option to match the colour of its side panels to those of your Nespresso machine is excellent. It functions well too, with the drop-down shelves giving the option of placing the case on an upper shelf or on a worktop. Being of similar size, proportion and (hopefully) colour to the machine it sits comfortably next to this on the worktop. There is enough friction created in the trays to hold the capsules securely whilst still allowing them to slide out easily when needed, so it's convenient and pleasing to use.

The four rubber feet stop the case sliding around, and the top panel has four sockets which would allow other cases from the manufacturer's range of storage units to be stacked safely on top.

A disadvantage of these cases is that each tray is only seven capsules deep, so if you have a different flavour in each rack, when it's loaded from the Nespresso delivery boxes you're left with three capsules in the box and unless you're happy to drop them in a bag or box mixed up with other flavours, the boxes then have to be stored until three of that particular flavour have been used. Presumably the reason for this arises from the need to limit the depth of the case to ensure it will fit onto 300mm deep shelves. Vertical storage devices don't suffer from this and normally hold the full set of ten capsules.

Another weakness which could easily have been designed out is the lack of labelling for each flavour - potentially ten of them. The front of each drawer has a recessed strip across it, and if this had been provided with a clear plastic face to create a slot (as for the labels on filing cabinet sleeves) the names of flavours could have been cut off the end tabs of the delivery boxes and slipped into the slots. One can still use these by sticking the names onto the drawers with double sided tape which helps enormously, but it could have been so much easier at little or no extra cost.

The last reservation is more subjective: at first sight the case looks as if it's clad with metal panels, but as soon as you touch it it's obvious that it's all made of plastic, and it's not all that rigid. It will wobble from side to side when it's handled; it doesn't feel as if it will break particularly easily and it doesn't affect the functionality at all - just feels slightly tacky. Built to a price, of course.

Quite study and well made, non slip feet, fits exactly in the wall cupboard next to our Nespresso machine (OK I measured it first but it's still nice that it fits so perfectly) and best of all it actually holds 70 pods not 60 as described.

Absolutely perfect - loads easily and can be used in a cupboard on a shelf or next to the coffee machine.
With the shelves pulling out and dropping is great for short people like me even on a fairly high shelf.

I did hesitate when looking at this as I thought it would become another kitchen 'dust collector' and end up being put in a cupboard or in the loft. But this is far from the case - it's ideal and is great way of storing the pods.

This is a lovely product, well made and a delight to use. It is the ideal way to store your coffee pods and although I keep mine in a cabinet they are elegant enough to store on your counter-top right next to your coffee machine. Although all the blurb tells you they can store 60 capsules they can in fact store 70 capsules with room to spare. I have two of these organizers set side by side but they are designed to stack should you wish to do so. I highly recommend the Café Stack Organizer.

Be aware that all capsules do not fit in, the ones you use with a Dolce Gusto Melody 3 wont fit in. but brilliant holder for others.

Its a shame you can only fit 6 (7 if you try hard) into each row. This means you always have some left overs when you open a new box of capsules! I

I don't think stacking two on top of each other will be very stable either, the single unit wobbles quite a bit already.

At the price i can't complain though, much cheaper than Nespresso's own offerings, and it does look good in our coffee area!

Half the price of what it would have been in JLP! It came with a few scratches on it but not bad enough to go through the hassle of returning it, very speedy delivery. This works best if in a cupboard, I didnt know this nor do I want my coffee in a cupboard....looks good and does the job!

Exactly the right colour , blends perfectly into my kitchen . Sturdy, neat and looks good . Arrived well packaged. Very pleased, as I have been looking for some time for something enclosed to keep our Nespresso coffee capsules in as I don't like the open ones you tend to see .

Is neat storage solution and sits nicely at the side of the Nespresso machine. Only criticism is that, unless right at the front edge of a shelf, the lower slides don't drop when pulled out and so pods don't move to the front to be taken out.
