Can We Help You Find The Right Keurig For You?
I need help finding the best model for my use.
No, thanks. I prefer to browse all models and decide for myself.
Now you’ve learned the basics of a Nespresso machine, let’s dig deep into each of its three popular models:
The Nespresso U, Nespresso Pixie and Nespresso CitiZ.
Each of the three machines stand out in a different way:
So let’s look at the features of each machine in details:
The Nespresso U:
The Nespresso CitiZ is also available as a stand-alone machine without the built-in frother.
When it comes to Nespresso machines and milk frothers, you’ll have three options:
Do you have to get the milk frother? That depends on what you prefer to drink, of course. If you like Cappuccinos, Lattes and other milk based drinks, the milk frother will be an excellent addition to your machine.
Does it matter if the machine has a built-in frother or not?
Whether it’s bundled or built-in, both are the exact same frother. Here’s the only difference it makes, with the built-in frother, you’re getting the frother powered up with the same plug as the machine. Where with the bundled frother, you’ll need to plug the frother on its own. So a built-in frother will save you some space with it comes to power management. Otherwise, both work in the exact same way.
Here’s what we think…
The UMilk is basically Nespresso U with a built-in milk frother, much like the CitiZ. We can’t seem to find it either on Nespresso’s or Amazon’s website (US websites, at least), so we’re guessing it might have been discontinued for some reason. We highly recommend that you go for a Nespresso U with an Aeroccino milk frother instead. It is exactly the same deal, possibly less expensive. The only difference is that you’ll need to separate plugs for the machine and the frother.
