Having both the Pixie and Vertuo Pro, they've all broken or had problems within or soon after the warranty. I was able to get the Pixie repaired/replaced but they all leaked. After a couple years and more issues, we decided to replace it with the Vertuo Pro for the coffee option. It lasted past the 1 year warranty before issues arose in that version too and now, before the 3 year mark, it's completely dead. We've religiously descaled and cleaned our machines. So while the coffee and convenience are great - these machines aren't a good investment - 1-3 years at best.
