NESPRESSO Pixie Coffee Machine : A good value for money Nespresso machine

Bought as a bday present for my husband. He had a tassimo machine but there was very little variety in the capsules so this is such a great machine with lots of variety. Plus it’s smaller than the tassimo so double-plusi’ve heard when you buy some nespresso machines you get a nice voucher for capsules, this machine did not have that voucher but overall very happy.

The price of the machine was great, the delivery prompt, the coffee is fantastic and the first order of capsules from nespresso arrived exactly 10 hours after ordering. I have already sampled most of the coffees and except for two varieties i really enjoy them all. The milky coffees are so easy and delicious with the aeroccino that they beat any of the hight street coffee shops. The pixie with aeroccino is the perfect choice for me as a single coffee drinker in our household. I still use my bialetti moka pot in the mornings to make coffee from freshly ground beans, so i only use about two to three nespresso capsules a day, which is not hitting my pocket too hard. If there were more of coffee drinkers in the household i would opt for a bean to cup machine.

This is my second nespresso machine, good value, easy to use.

  • The best thing to enter my life this 2017
  • Perfection in a cup
  • I really love my new Pixie

Nespresso Pixie Coffee Machine with Aeroccino, Carmine Red by Magimix

  • Ultra compact brewing unit
  • Aeroccino 3 for hot or cold fresh milk froth
  • Ergonomic capsule insertion and automatic ejection of used capsules
  • 40% energy saving: Power safe mode
  • The Nespresso Pixie comes with a 3 years guarantee and Nespresso home collection service

The coffee that came with the machine is out of date.

Easy to clean and not too big to take up too much work top. Coffee comes out slower than anticipated and a bit noisy but coffee tastes really good. Don’t use the milk aeroccino much but good to offer it to guests.

Lovely quality machine, good capacity water container, and led lights to remind you to fill upi got it for a great price too.

Coffee machine is easy to use & makes a great espresso. Decent sized water container and waste pod holder. Not very impressed with aeroccino – overflows very easily as lid doesn’t fit tightly, no fill level marked inside so you have to guess the level anyway. Foam created disappears very quickly when poured into coffee. Should have saved money & bought another battery operated hand held milk foamer.

This is our second magimix nespresso machine, we had the citiz + aeroccino previously which we thrashed hence the new pixie. It’s very compact in comparison, slightly different mechanism which is an improvement and looks great. We couldn’t resist it at the price, a full £50. However, and sorry nespresso, we stumbled across a manual frother from bialetti which is outrageously effective and a fraction of the price of an aeroccino. It produces incredible milky foam. The pixie is a no brainer for anyone considering buying a nespresso machine. The seller also deserves credit for dispatching very quickly. Delivery took less than two days.

My neighbour had this machine and i was really impressed by it, i had to get one. I did my research and even took a trip to edinburgh to try out some of the coffees in the nespresso store. Only grip i have, is i wish it was a bit warmer. A trick is to heat the cup up with some warm water first. I am enjoying trying out the new flavours.

Easy to set up, fill and clean. A lot louder than i would have expected, however.

I have several of these machines but this is the 1st one from the uk. Since i live on a nato base and have 220 power, i had to order one from the uk as i was desperate to have my machine overseas (not in the uk). I am now super disappointed as i can’t register it or purchase coffee for it with nespresso since i do not live in the uk. They refuse to ship anywhere else regardless of my offer to pay shipping. It is a great little machine but nespresso sucks at customer service and stupid policies.

I drink at least 2-3 cups a day (at least) but i’ve never been a fan of instant coffee. Which makes drinking nice coffee quite expensive when i stop at places like costa or other coffee shops for my daily fix. Nespresso has just saved me. The liquid heaven that pours from this machine is just incredible and i would be inclined to say it produces the best coffe i’ve probably ever had (i’ve even been drinking the occasional black coffee recently as it is just so perfectly balanced and full of flavour). If you need coffee in your life, get this machine. If you want better coffe in your life, get it. If you don’t like coffee, what’s wrong with you and why are you looking at this?.

Does what it says makes a great cup of coffee almost quicker than making instant coffee. The milk aerator is excellent and even works well with skimmed milk. Coffee is now a real treat at home without any fuss. Only down side is sending for the capsules as i don’t live anywhere near a shop, but service was quick and efficient and you can recycle used capsules which i like. A great machine and worth the extra money rather than the cheaper machines on offer. Machine is slim and stylish and looks good too, doesn’t take up much room and simplicity itself to use and keep clean.

How did i live without you pixie. The best thing to enter my life this 2017. I love this machine it is everything i need in my coffee life. And you can get cheaper capsules that work from costco. If you (like me) have spent countless money at costco buying a cortado or an espresso save some money and invest on this. It tastes so good, get the frother (aeroccino) and you will never look back. Sorry costa – i know longer need you.

Had tassimo before, but this is a different level.

After only 13 months and very little use this coffee machine has decided not to work any morei would certainly not replace with the same make.

Easy top quality coffee and so fast too. Honestly don’t bother with the bigger ones this is more than enough for the home. Looks neat and tidy in the kitchen and the lights at the clear front(which you only get with the pixie) look really cool. Top tip: keep it clean and look after it. The milk frother needs tlc after every use and it’ll last for ages.

Easy to use – water heats up really quick. Can change amounts of water to size of cup.

Compact machine, of the usual (high) nespresso standard. Does 100% of the job for me. Arrived relatively fast (international shipment). The tray and the waste capsules container are a little bit flimsy and cheap-looking (it’s part of the lightweight design, i guess) but it’s fine with me.

Absolutely love this coffee machine. I like how the internal light glows red when it’s time to refill the water.

Thrilled to bits with my purchase and got it for a brilliant price. I use this all the time and now my tassimo machine sits abandoned on the worktop ( sorry).

  1. 4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, compact machine for small spaces
    Bought this coffee machine for a small office. We only needed espresso and lungo options so this was perfect. Its well made, very compact and looks sleek and professional. It holds maybe 8 capsules before the little bin gets full but its so easy to empty and clean. The only thing to note is that its quite loud. So if a meeting or presentation is going on, i wouldn’t recommend making a coffee because everyone will definitely hear it.

    Looks good, easy to operate, the light feature is a plus factor. The only negative i’ve noticed is a tendency for the water filter to become clogged. I find that if you regularly remove the water canister and clean the nozzle connecting the canister to the machine, this helps the efficient running of the machine.

      It is compact, stylish and very easy to use. It is a little noisy when making the coffee but that only lasts a few seconds. The milk frother is remarkable and produces creamy thick froth at the touch of a button.

      1. 3.0 out of 5 stars Good solid kit
        Great machine, hubbie loves it especially the chunky feel of the handle to lock a capsule in place. Occasionally capsules get damaged and wasted but all in all a good bit of kit. He prefers the taste of the nespresso capsules having tried cheaper alternatives. Alternative compatible capsule from the supermarkets are now available the nespresso patent has ended. The milk frothier is good too for lattes. Recommended but wait for a promo deal to get vouchers for free capsules so you can try a range of flavours to hone in your preference.

  7. 1.0 out of 5 stars Disposal coffee machine.
    The large cup and small cup buttons were the wrong way around. Press small cup gwt z big cup and vice versa. So basically a machine you can recycle at the council recyling tip rather than reliably use for years and years.

    1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Great for a couple of months....
      . Leaked (water leakage underneath) after a few months of daily use. Seems to be a recurring problem with this particular model (google it). Cleaning and descaling did not get rid of problem. Very glad it was bought at half price. Still use it from time to time but would not buy again. Have since bought a filter machine and a cafetierre.

      Great machine, makes fantastic coffee. I don’t care how fantastic it makes coffee, if it doesn’t work it’s useless and as of this morning, it doesn’t work.Wnen i put a coffee pod in the machine and press either of the two buttons on top all i get is a noise and the lights freeze on. No coffee and on ejecting the pod. Either a blown foil lid or a bulging foil lid. I have tried and wasted nesspresso pods to no avail. I am deeply disappointed with this machine. If i could give it minus five stars, i would.
