    Colour Name: Electric Red Verified Purchase
    Firstly I admit it, on most occasions I'm a tea drinker - I've never really been a big coffee drinker as I've never found any variety I really like and previous machines I've used such as a Bosch Tassimo never really produced anything of merit.

    I didn't fancy all of the efforts the more expensive specialist machines seem to involve, plus I'm easily swayed by some nice packaging and reviews from my friends so I splashed out £105 on the Krups Nespresso Pixie - in a dashing shade of red - with an extra bonus at the time of £40 cash back to spend in the Nespresso Club. Not a bad deal.

    Unusually for an Amazon delivery, this Nespresso didn't arrive in a generic brown box, it arrived in its retail box with my delivery note attached to the side. The box was fairly small but was well packaged. Easy to open, easy to delve into, the Pixie was wrapped carefully and came with a binder of sorts, with a help guide, quick reference menu for the various coffee types, an instruction manual, and quite conveniently a sample package containing one of each of the sixteen `Grand Cru'.

    The machine was very straightforward to set up, a simple case of unpack the machine and place it on the kitchen counter, slot the perspex spent coffee pod container into the drip tray, then slide this into the main body of the Pixie. I filled up the water container that sits on the back of the unit - which takes 0.7 litres which isn't masses - but does offer enough for a few cups of coffee, especially if you're fond of espresso! A few quick cycles of the machine washed everything through and I was then ready to test the machine in earnest.

    Deciding what coffee you want is the first step that's actually difficult.

    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.

    Nespresso by Krups XN300940 Pixie Coffee Machine, Electric Indigo

    This is the 5th Nespresso Machine I have purchased over the years, and in my opinion it is the best I have had yet. Its is very compact, but very sturdy and well made, and it heats up so quickly. The power save feature is great as I always forget to turn off the machine after using it, now it turns itself off, brilliant! The other machines I have had have all leaked water to some degree, this one does not. It does not froth milk, but frankly the Nespress Aeroccino does a much better job of frothing milk, than any coffee machine with frothing nozzle that I have ever had. Perfect little machine!

    I bought this to replace a Magimix Nespresso U which I'd had for just over 3 years and which broke with a horrible snapping, grinding sound, after which the top wouldn't open any more. This machine (Krups Pixie) seems to be superior in every way despite being only slightly more expensive. Firstly, the water tank is locked into the machine when the lid is closed, making it harder for e.g. passing cats to knock it over. Secondly the pod is clamped and punctured by a big, robust manual lever instead of an internal motor. This is how the other Nespresso machines work, and although the electric motorised system in the U is kind of cool, it's far more fragile and liable to break. Also, the U is activated by closing the pod pay door, which can lead to inadvertent activations. Thirdly it heats up very quickly. Fourthly the used capsule tray is clear, so you can see how full it is, whereas the U's used capsule tray needs to be pulled out to look inside, and in practice you don't know it's full until it makes a weird grinding sound after pouring the coffee.

    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.
