    I love it as it is so easy when you're not a Barista, just put the water in the back, milk in the front, pod in, choose your coffee type and press a button! The best bit is the self-cleaning, so easy to do.

    Pods can be a pain as they're only stocked in Nespresso stores or online, but I usually stock up anyway and I love Christmas time when they release their limited edition flavours. I have found other brand pods which are compatible with this machine and they have a hot chocolate one which is great, as Nespresso as far as I'm away, still don't do chocolate.
    I've never seen this one...I think I'll be getting this when our other one finally dies!

    We don't use our milk frother/heater cause we had burning issues, we just heat the milk in the microwave now... If I had to replace ours I wouldn't bother with the milk part.

    I have this one and never had any trouble with milk burning. I've had mine for about a year and a half, and I love it.

    It's used daily, sometimes several times a day. I think it's a nice tasting coffee. So easy to use too which is what I want in the morning when I'm trying to function before I've had my caffeine

    Please, please don't get a pod one. They are a disgraceful invention that are awful for the environment. Honestly, it's two tiny extra steps to use an espresso machine and you're not throwing all those horrible pods in the bin. And even if some are recyclable, they are still being produced, packaged, shipped, etc.
    for a tiny bit of convenience you're hurting the earth a whole lot.

    I have to agree with @FearlessLeader I'm afraid. Coffee pods are like the tampax of coffee machines to me (in terms of unnecessary wastage when you could achieve the same result without the packaging).

    We have a manual machine and it is so easy once you are properly shown.

    If you buy a nespresso or any other brand it's like crack ...you HAVE to but only their pods - except that the aldi pods also fit the nespresso machine so you can have the more expensive looking machine but not be roped into buying their pods. Also the aldi pods are as nice as the more expensive ones.
    The Aldi pods don't fit the nespresso machine. I bought some but they are too big.

    And... Milk seems to burn in one spot in the frother which is weird and irritating!
    I notice Gloria jeans has pods now but not sure which machines they're suitable for.
    I think we sent our nespresso up incorrectly for short and long cup because it's never completely right. But it's convenient and once you find a flavour you like it's pretty good
    I did the same thing with set up but discovered you can restore factory settings. Its in the booklet.

    We've had both of them for over 5 years. The office one gets used a minimum of 30 times a day and it is still going strong!

    I agree about the milk burning onto the milk frother though. Annoying. You have to make sure it's super clean before anyone uses it next, and you can't make one directly after the other without washing it or it will burn on and stop working properly. That's my only gripe with it though, otherwise, it's awesome! I even make hot chocolates in the milk frother

    I contacted Nespresso when my milk frother ended up with a burn mark and they gave me a reply paid address to send it back to and they sent me out a new one. Might be worth a call.

    OP, I like our Nespresso machine. The coffee is admittedly not as good as the coffee I get at my favourite café, but it certainly does the job. If you do get a machine it will come with 16 different sample pods. Take note of each one as to whether or not you like it (at the time you have it) so you know what pods to order. Out of the 16 pods, I usually order the same 5 pods.
