3.0 out of 5 stars Looks good, some usability problems, price a bit steep, 22 Nov. 2011

This review is from: Travola Swiss Capstore Alu 60, Holds 60 Nespresso Capsules, Gift Boxed (Kitchen & Home)
If you like to keep a good variety of capsules without taking up too much space, this stand is a good bet. It rotates smoothly, and is bottom-heavy so it doesn't fall over. You can remove capsules from the bottom or the top, so you can store 12 varieties -- all the varieties except limited editions and decafs.

However, there are three drawbacks.

First, when you take a capsule out from the bottom, the one that drops down sometimes falls out of the dispenser. If you're using two varieties in a column, or if you want to keep the capsules in order so you use the oldest first, you then have to fiddle about trying to put it back in from the bottom, which is awkward.

The second drawback is that loading capsules from the top is a bit fiddly. You need to get the capsule edges between the rails on each side, but unless you have good light, the black metal makes it difficult to see what you're doing. If you miss on one side, the capsule slides down the tower, falls off and rolls away.

Finally, the top of each rail has just been cut straight across; the edges have not been rounded. This gives a rough feel to an otherwise slick, professional-looking item, and can also cut your finger if you catch it wrong.

The last two problems could probably have been solved with a little rounded plastic cap on each rail, in a lighter colour to the rest of the tower.

The RRP of £40 is ferociously expensive, though. I shopped around and got it for about £28, and still feel I paid a bit too much given the problems. For this sort of premium price I wouldn't expect rough edges on metal that I have to put my hands near.
