Nespresso by KitchenAid review – the elegant machine for coffee lovers

0

KitchenAid, the iconic appliance brand, has partnered with Nespresso to create a new portioned coffee machine that delivers both in terms of looks and performance.

Nespresso by KitchenAid has retro looks and charm with a die-cast metal construction that comes in Onyx Black, Candy Apple Red, Medallion Silver and Almond Cream.

For this new product, KitchenAid brings to the table its high quality craftsmanship and attention to detail.

It is 33cm tall and 20.8cm wide so it’s going to take up a fair bit of space.

And this doesn’t include the separate Aeroccino milk frother which can be positioned anywhere you have space.

The Nespresso by KitchenAid has a classic design that combines elegant manual features with the latest technology.

The loading system for the coffee capsules has a simple lever that puts the capsule into place and also ejects it after its been used.

On the back is a 1.4L removable water tank.

Under the hood, the Nespresso by KitchenAid has a stainless steel heating element to give you precisely the right temperature for your coffee.

It has a 19-bar pressure pump to extract every ounce of the coffee and deliver a rich layer of crema for an authentic espresso experience.

On the front is a simple control that allows users to set the size and strength of their coffee.

It has an easy-to-read LED indicator and a knob to adjust the machine to the right setting.

Naturally, the Nespresso by KitchenAid can be set to brew ristretto, espresso and lungo coffees with a heat-up time of just 25 seconds.

The used capsule capsule canister can hold up to 14 capsules so you’re not continually emptying the machine between brews.

The machine comes with the Aeroccino3 milk frother to heat and whip your milk for a delicious finish to your coffee.

The coffee temperature was spot-on every time.

We’ve used other Nespresso machines that produce good coffee but we needed to heat it up in the microwave for 20 seconds to get it to the right temperature.

There’s no such issue with the Nespresso by KitchenAid.

On the down side the Aeroccino3 is not connected to the machine so it needs its own power supply.

So you’ll need to plug in two appliances – not one. For our review we used a double adaptor and a short extension cord so we only needed to plug in one cable at the power point.

VERDICT

The Nespresso by KitchenAid coffee machine combines two great brands into one impressive product.

It makes great coffee each and every time and looks as good as it performs.
