4.0 out of 5 stars Should I have bought the other one?, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nespresso by Krups XN300640 Pixie Coffee Machine - Electric Red (Kitchen & Home)
I contemplated this item for a long time, then decided just to go for it. I think it's great and it is really small so looks smashing on the bunker not taking up much room. However, I thought I would point a couple of things out that would have made me buy the Citiz instead.

If I want to use a large mug/glass I can't use just any mug as the flip up part at the bottom is a bit awkward. Sometimes it doesn't fit properly and you have to hold it under whilst it dispenses your coffee. The Citiz seems to have a more practical stand.

The other think worth mentioning is the mechanism for opening/closing it. With the Pixie, the dispensing tube pushes out. This means that if your mug is in place it can push it over, and also means that if you use a small esspresso cup, when the dispensing tube moves, it can dribble down the side of the mug. On the Citiz, the front doesn't move when you move the leve, instead an opening in the top opens without anything else being effected.

Hope this helps a bit for anyone trying to decide between the two. The only other comment would be please, please buy your coffee direct from Nespresso. They have a great service and are much cheaper than others selling it on third hand online or selling inferior coffee in compatable capsules, which are just as, if not more, expensive.

Now a year down the line it is still working as if it was new. No problems what so ever.
