Have seen at my two local Kmarts a Pod machine that takes Nespresso for $29. It is the Homemaker (Kmart) brand. No idea of if they are great or not but they are so cheap

If it's the same one I have, I bought it at $89, then it went down to everyday price of $69 which I was a bit bummed about, but $29!! Awesome price! I love our machine, works really well. I buy the nespresso pods online.

Can any other pods be used in this unit? Ie Woolworth's . Might grab one for the beach house, rather than taking mine down .

I would also love to know which pods I can buy for the kmart machine (all I know is the nespresso ones).

I have been wanting a coffee pod machine and $29 is worth me giving it a try.

It also fits the Piazza Doro L'or brand which we found at Coles and Joyce Mayne.
We bought one at $69 when our espresso machine broke. Never had any problems with it.

Thanks OP, what a great deal!  Coles has something similar for $79.

Does anyone know if the silver drip tray can be removed to clean?  Mine looks jammed in there.

I pull the whole front out (to empty out the pods) and then clean it like that. I'm not sure if the silver bit comes out by itself though, haven't tried.

I'm seriously thinking about buying a second one of these at this price for when my other one eventually stops working original.gif

Slightly OT.  I had a look at the Nespresso site to check out the types of coffee.  OMG what a clunky site!  

Was interested in looking at their recycling program.  Just a whole lot of text, can't find where I can drop them off (not near a Nespresso store).  

Littlebirdy - at $29, why not I say! biggrin.gif

Does anyone have any problems with theirs?  Mine is dripping a lot of water after use.  Going to take it back later to exchange for another.

The unit I have seems to leak, quite a bit. Its inconsistent, sometimes its at first use & virtually uses all the waters in the reservoir to make one cup, at other times it may not leak until its the 2nd  or 3rd cup. I'm going to return mine.

I paid $99 for one of those cheaper coffee machines and I loved it, but it started to leak all the time, so I sent it back and they refunded my money. I then bought a cheaper one from Advancer and no trouble so far. I think I have had it for six months. I prefer the Nespresso Voluto capsules as I found the Woolworth ones awful tasting. oomg.gif
