STILL HAPPY AFTER 3 YEARS! Functional, attractive, sturdy, clever design features (like the tilting trays), great price.

UPDATE: HAD THIS THREE YEARS AND STILL IN LOVE WITH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This hits all the criteria. It's neat, slim, priced right and looks great sitting outside on the counter or it fits perfectly well in my tiny NYC cabinet (the tilting trays are perfect even if the cabinet is higher up)! It neatly organizes up to 10 different styles that are right at your fingertips with no shuffling of other styles to get to the one you like. All the other type of capsule holders had too many negatives that this little beauty avoids, like: 1) Those that act like a basket where you just dump assorted flavors and then search for the one you want or 2) those which are stacked tube-style organizers and only allow easy access to 4 or 5 of those styles that drop into the opening at the bottom or 3) those which are carousel basket-type holders which are very bulky.
I really like the way this looks on my counter next to the machine (the black and aluminum finish goes well with the machine and the other brushed nickel accessories in my kitchen), however if I do need more counter space, the slim design of this unit also fits perfectly inside my skinny cabinet, with the front of the organizer still visually displaying all the capsule styles.....all you do is slide the door out and it swings down, allowing easy access to the pod of your choice while allowing the entire case to remain in the cabinet). Before getting the organizer, I would keep the capsules in the cardboard sleeves and then stack the sleeves inside my cabinet, one on top of the other. Needless to say, when I removed a sleeve, the others would tumble out or topple over. This keeps all the different capsules easily organized and accessible. I wouldn't change a thing about this....the design team got this one right! And it's priced well, too.
Tax and free shipping put this at $32.00 and I'm quite happy with the purchase.
