Nespresso XN300540 Pixie Coffee Machine by Krups - Titanium.
From the manufacturer
Thanks to its compact dimensions, the Pixie coffee maker fits in any kitchen and is available in a wide range of colours and two finishes. Only 11 cm wide, it uses hardly any space and is ideal for smaller urban kitchens.
Espresso and Lungo
The one-touch buttons with two cup capacities (espresso and lungo) can be reprogrammed to customised volumes and are backlit for ease of use. The folding drip tray accommodates differing cup sizes for espresso and milk coffee lovers alike.
High Pressure Pump and Ideal Heat Control System
The 19 bar high-pressure pump allows for a barista-style result, unlocking the delicate flavour and premium aromas of each coffee capsule during the brewing process and creating an incomparably dense and unctuous crema. The ideal heat control system reaches the ideal temperature in just 25 seconds.
Empty Water Tank Alert
Red backlights along the sides of the machine light up to alert you when you need to refill the water tank. With the automatic power-off function, the machine turns off 9 minutes after the last use, consuming less energy.
Each machine includes a welcome set with 16 capsules. Try each Grand Cru to find your favourites.
Nespresso Capsule System
The Nespresso capsule system delivers ideal taste and aromas thanks to the preparation of high-quality coffees in hermetically sealed and recyclable aluminium capsules for coffee enjoyment at the peak level.
The Nespresso Club
The Nespresso Club is always there for you; online, by telephone (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) or in one of the Boutiques. Order your Nespresso capsules, receive personalised advice and obtain technical support for your machine: whatever you are seeking, the Nespresso Club is with you every step of the way.
They also offer a capsule recycling service to all Club members in mainland UK and ROI.
The Positive Cup
Nespresso believe that each cup of Nespresso has the potential to not only deliver a moment of pleasure but also restore, replenish and revive environmental and human resources. In effect, a cup of coffee that can create a greater value for society and the environment.
This is the Positive Cup vision and continues Nespresso's commitment to sustainability in coffee sourcing and consumption.

Looks-wise, I'd peg them about even. I do really like the streamlined design of the U, and I'm not crazy about the exposed screw heads on the Pixie, but I do like the corrugated metallic side panels and the led lighting which goes red to warn you when the water tank is empty (as with the used capsule tray, the U just goes *gronk* and stops mid-pouring if the water runs out).
In terms of quality-of-coffee-poured, this is very tightly controlled by Nespresso standards and all machines should produce more-or-less identical drinks unless they're full of limescale, or old and worn out.
The only significant downside, compared to the U, is that the water tank has to be positioned at the back of the machine, where the U allows it to go on either side, or at the back.
My issue is that, as other reviewers have pointed out, it leaks water. Every single time it's used. It started after about 6 months and still does. I contacted Nespresso, expecting their famed fabulous customer service to kick in, but although perfectly pleasant, the issue was ignored and a replacement tank was sent out - even though that's clearly not where the fault lay. Based on previous reviews I'd expected a replacement or a proper fix, but neither have been forthcoming. Eventually gave up trying.
If you're thinking of buying one, my best advice would be to go ahead, but ideally hold off until it's next on offer and expect to have problems that Nespresso won't address. These machines aren't cheap and although it works out costing less than buying chain coffees, it's still frustrating when a purchase like this is fundamentally flawed. These machines go on offer at 50% off which I feel is about right given the known issues. When mine eventually dies completely, I will repurchase, but not at full price.
I was torn between this model (pixie) and the inissia, but I went for this one due to it being slightly cheaper, and I prefered the sleek modern look of the pixie. At the time of my purchase this cost £59 and the innisia only slightly more expensive. Now however, this machine costs £129.90. I am not sure what the reasoning for this price increase is, but I don't think I would pay that much more than what I originally paid.
Unlike Nespresso"s other machines which are manufactured in China i believe the Pixie is still made in Switzerland and is not all plastic.
I love the Pods & the availability of them & the way there is a scoring system for the strengths.
In all, this for me was a great purchase. I use it regularly it's easy to use simply turn it on & press the "go" button. It makes very little mess & better than all this I can get frothy hot milk!!
