Not for Dolce Gusto pods!
on July 31, 2015
This product, in general, let us down quite a bit. While we are sure it is a GREAT product option for some, especially those looking to organize their K-Cups, it is not for us. We were frustrated that the product listing called out Nestle Dolce Gusto pods as one of the organization potentials. The trays are simply too shallow to properly organize Dolce Gusto pods. Just because the pods fit do not mean it is a good method of organization- you're best off with a carousel. The pods look sloppy and even fall out when the drawers slide open too fast and this unit is much too big to be a counter space saver as is sticks out so far (over half) across our counter depth. We live in a 2 bedroom condo so the kitchen simply isn't big enough and this storage bin is about 3x the footprint of our Dolce Gusto Genio machine.
These wouldn't have been major issues for us if the product image hadn't looked so different from the actual product. We were expecting a brushed metal (plastic) finish. The red plastic is much brighter and cheaper looking than the concept images and stands out like a sore thumb. We quickly returned this.
