Krups Nescafe Dolce Gusto KP210040 review


Fresh coffee made from pre-packed “pods”? It's a concept that might have espresso purists reaching for the sick bag, but it saves hassle and whips up a decent cup in no time, as this machine shows…

You've seen them in the Come Dine With Me bumper ads, now sample the wares of these cartoonish-looking pod-based coffee machines, available in a range of colours from exciting black to sensual off-white. Unlike the Siemens, it makes the logical design...

As with most pod machines, this isn't for the purist, as you're stuck with Nescafe's notion of a perfect blend. The pods also aren't especially cheap. The 'cute' looks aren't going to be to everyone's taste, and the 15 bar pump can't quite nail a...

Great little gadget


so quick and easy to set up and get going. Makes a delicious 'cafe-style' coffee in seconds - hard not to be tempted to have more than one cup at time.

Nice machine but see below


Great piece of kit, nice to use, produces lovely hot coffee. However, compared with the Nespresso capsules, these have two disadvantages - they are quite bulky to store conveniently, and they leak once used, so are fiddly to dispose of. I am not...

easy to use, quick hot drinks, pleasing design

pods are quite bulky, used pods contain liquid which then leaks out
