The Pixie is the smallest Nespresso machine, and features a host of innovative and practical features. The Pixie is fast, with a heat up time of only 25-30 seconds, so you can enjoy your Grand Cru coffee without having to wait.
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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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!
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.
