Summary: Excellent when using the capsules especially for the Pixie. I also have (had..gave to my daughter) a plain Nespresso least expensive and had no problem with other makers of capsules. The best part of the newer Pixie is the automatic shut off and there are two "buttons" where you can select either the regular size or the Lungo size.
Summary: I have a Citiz in my office and recently got the Pixie for home. My wife has a kitchen appliance addiction that's wiping out our kitchen counter space, so the Pixie's smaller footprint is great. It's amazing how they get 19 bar pressure in such a small package. The Pixie is a fraction faster than the Citiz, and I also feel it's the better looking machine. I prefer the Pixie's more secure water reservoir release mechanism to the one in the Citiz.
Summary: I have two Nespresso machines. I have purchased several others as gifts; all the Pixie model. I love this espresso maker. The capsules are easy to order through Nespresso online. The espresso tastes great. The machine is so easy to use. I cannot say enough about how much use this gets in our house. It is super slim and compact, so it will fit in any kitchen. The boldness of the espresso ranges from mellow to very intense, so all tastes are accommodated.
