Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

This is my 3rd Nespresso machine in about 10 years. I was happy to replace the last one because it was way too noisy. This one is quiet and stylish. It works as great as it looks.

The Best Cappuccinos and Lattes

I have had other Nespresso machines but this one is the best tasting! I also like the variety of coffee that you can use with this machine. It's easy to clean and looks great on the counter

Awful, burnt espresso with little to no crema.

Submitted by KarlIcchan - 1/25/2017

Let me preface this review by saying that I have had 3 different Nespresso machines over the past decade and drink Nespresso espresso nearly every day. I recently received the KitchenAid Nespresso Espresso Maker as a gift. I was initially impressed by the build quality - it is a solid, good looking machine. That was, however, its only redeeming quality. The espresso made by this machine comes out much more quickly than any other machine that I have owned. Every shot that I pulled tasted burnt, dull, and foul. The crema was weak and dissolved almost instantly. I contacted Nespresso to see if I may have gotten a dud. They gave me the contact info for KitchenAid Small appliance division. The associate decided to send me a replacement machine. After waiting without coffee for over 2 weeks, the replacement finally arrived. Unfortunately, the replacement was identical to the first machine. Disgusting, burnt espresso with little to no crema. It seems to have an issue with keeping the proper temperature. I promptly sent back the replacement and returned the original to the store. I replaced it with a Breville Nespresso machine that makes wonderful coffee. In all, I cannot warn you enough to stay away from this machine and pick pretty much any other. Even the cheapest Nespresso maker makes better coffee than this one.

Best Nespresso machine on the market

Submitted by Alexandre - 1/7/2017

I've had this machine for a year and half and I really love it. Very robust, stylish and makes great coffees. It looks amazing on our counter top. I had the chance to try other Nespresso machines and no one comes close to this KitchenAid one. Top quality, this is the high end product for Nespresso and it's worth it.

I absolutely love my machine!!! The look and color ( mine is empire red) makes it even better!!! The only thing I would change is the water tank. I would like easier access to it and thicker plastic or make it glass.

Very solid appliance that produces great expressso

Submitted by Richard - 11/26/2016

The quality of your drinks will depend on the quality of the capsules that you select and your personal preference. Most of the Nespresso brand capsules are good and a couple are great. There are several other brands that make great capsules too. I found several capsules from Gourmesso that I really like. If you liker green tea you should try the Gourmesso green tea - I was amazed! I have to move the machine away from the wall to fill the water reservoir but I like the looks of this machine I don't think that I would change it even if I could.

Outstanding support from Kitchen Aid

Submitted by Stu in Newbury - 8/11/2016

I had an unfortunate experience with their Nespresso machine and wrote an earlier review. KA responded quickly and replaced the machine FOC even though the warranty had recently expired. Customer service is clearly a priority at KA and for that reason alone I'd recommend anyone who is looking for a stylish Nespresso machine then this is the one. The design flaws are still there - the difficulty of seeing when the capsule container is full or the water level is too low, and it doesn't have the sophistication of the KA toaster, but they look great together on the counter top. I'm sure that KA is listening to their customers and the next gen of KA Nespresso machine will address the shortcomings.

High Quality!

Submitted by MK - 2/7/2016

Heavy cast iron construction and built to be a perfect match with other KitchenAid Pro line counter top appliances. Performance matches the construction... I've used this regularly since purchasing it 2 months ago and can not find anything I don't like or would change about it. The KitchenAid Nespresso machine is a wonderful product and I am very pleased with my purchase!

Good aesthetically, poor functionality, low reliability

Submitted by Stu in Newbury - 1/24/2016

I've bought perhaps 5 or more Nespresso machines over the last 10 years and this one by KitchenAid promised to be robust and highly complementary with our other KitchenAid products. However from the onset it would crush capsules and was always difficult to load capsules. The lack of a low water warning light is not as inconvenient as not knowing how full the empty capsule is. If you pull the drawer out to see if it needs emptying you can't push the draw back! And if you have an overfull empty capsule container that adds to the problem of crushing capsules by not allowing the used capsule to drop out of the way of the new. An expensive way to learn that the container needs emptying. Now after just over a year since purchase the machine has quit working. It still heats, but won't properly pierce the capsules meaning all you get is hot water. Compound this with the fact that KitchenAid does not have any parts online available nor even recognizes it as one of their products when you search for parts by Model number. Altogether a very, very disappointing experience and unexpected compared to the well designed, good performing KitchenAid mixers and toasters that we own and that created the confidence to pay a premium price for a bad product. I've gone back to the conventional Nespresso machine and won't be buying another KitchenAid Nespresso machine again.

Best Espresso Machine on the Market

Submitted by Jumping Johnny - 11/15/2015

I have purchased numerous high-end automatic espresso machines that were very expensive--all of them failed after a year or two. This machine-with it's 19 bar pump--makes espresso that far exceeds those costly machines in taste and quality. You will get no better crèma, even from an industrial machine. In addition, it's beautifully made and does not have a lot of plastic parts. I very highly recommend

This machine is beautiful. It was a gift and somthing I was really excited to own. It has a very sturdy build, and is very simple in execution. The beauty and convenience of this machine in an early morning routine is lovely to experince in a morning on the go. And aesthetically, it never disapponts anytime you end up in your kitchen.

Awesome Machine

Submitted by JB7 - 9/17/2015

I purchased the machine for my home so I could take a different machine to work to have Nespresso. After using the KitchenAid for a few days at home, I gave away the other machine and ordered a KitchenAid for work. I could not be happier with my machine.

Great Coffee Maker

Submitted by Maria - 9/1/2015

I love Nespresso coffee, so when I saw that Kitchenaid made a coffee maker exclusively for Nespresso, I had to try it. I already owned a Nespresso Citi coffee maker, but the Kitchenaid is so much better. I.can select various sizes, the water reservoir is larger and easier to fill and clean and the overall look and quality is better. The only complaint I have is it takes a bit too long to fill up a regular size mug which requires several button pushes to accomplish. However, this coffeemaker is wonderful.

Built like the proverbial tank!!

Submitted by RWA - 6/15/2015

Bought this KitchenAid / Nespresso coffee maker a few months ago and could not be more satisfied. - Makes excellent coffee from Nespresso capsules (to my surprise much more flavorful than my previous (not KitchenAid!) Nespresso machine. - Appears to be built for eternity - Easy to operate and clean Only complaint: The water tank is in the rear of the machine and needs to be angled backwards to release it for refilling. If the machine is placed on a countertop with wall-mounted cabinets above, the tank is very inconvenient to remove and re-insert. It would be much easier, if it slid out sideways.
