Nespresso and KitchenAid have partnered to produce a coffee machine specifically for Nespresso showcasing the design and flair of KitchenAid products. KitchenAid are a home applicance brand that specialise in kitchen equipment, so it’s interesting to see that they have invested in making a Nespresso machine.
Unlike other manufacturers such as Krups and MagiMix, at present KitchenAid have only focused on producing the one Nespresso machine, positioning it as a premium product with KitchenAid quality and experience behind it. It is named “KitchenAid Artisan Nespresso” and was available in two colours initially: Candy Apple Red and Onyx Black. The range of colours has now expanded to include Almond Cream, Medallion Silver, Empire Red (which is darker than Candy Apple Red) and Frosted Pearl. A photo showing the colour options is below.
The KitchenAid Artisan Nespresso coffee machine comes with a hefty price tag, but is definitely on the high end of the scale when it comes to Nespresso coffee machines. Most people’s experiences of other KitchenAid appliances are very favourable, and what you are paying for in this instance is the fully metal finish to the coffee machine as well as the sleek lines and design elements which blend in with other high end KitchenAid products.
From a technical Nespresso point of view, the coffee making process itself is the same as some of the cheaper models like the Nespresso U or the Nespresso Inissia, but these machines won’t carry the premium finish that the KitchenAid model does. The KitchenAid Nespresso can be expected to be at home in a kitchen where the best products are on display, and the user fancies high quality in the appliances they buy.
You can also combine the KitchenAid Nespresso machine with Nespresso’s Aeroccino milk frother to allow you to make silky milk-based coffees at home as well – it is not just an espresso exclusive.
The parts that make up the KitchenAid Nespresso are predominantly die cast from both zinc and aluminium, and as a result can often be extremely sturdy and reliable. Naturally nothing is ever 100% but the finish truly is superb and this is what you’d be paying the extra for on the price tag.
If you’re after a premium finish or want a Nespresso machine that looks fantastic and is extremely reliable in your kitchen, then look no further than the KitchenAid Artisan Nespresso if it’s pure high quality that you’re after.
On the other hand, if you only care about the end result in terms of coffee then some of the other Nespresso models such as the CitiZ, Pixie and U may be more suitable as they’re a cheaper price but for a very similar product.
