We've just had a gadget turn up for review which isn't the sort of thing we'd usually cover. Instead of boxing it up and sending it right back, we've decided to turn it into a game, of sorts, and ask if you can Guess The Gadget.
Below are nine shots of the item in question, followed by the answer and a quick review.
Take a look and let us know, honestly, if you had any idea what it was.
An abstract one to begin with...
Hmm, some kind of grill?
Nope, it's an actual grille.
How good is our macro camera?
Should be easier now...
So liquid might be involved? Or nitrogen coolent?

Answer: Nespresso Magimix U Pure
That's right - it's a coffee maker. Specifically, it's the <a href="http://www.nespresso.com/uk/en/product/u-magimix-orange;jsessionid=B4EA5C056C466378971E7A487900A7F6.node2">Nespresso Magimix U in orange</a>. This device retails for about £120, and uses a thermoblock heating system and 19 bars of pressure to turn Nespresso's little coffee capsules into very decent espresso indeed. We found it to be a nice looking, quick and well-made coffee maker, but one which is also a bit pricey and lacks some key options - no steamed milk, extra hot water or other extras. It folds up neatly, uses magnetic clips for its extraneous parts and handily turns itself off when not in use. It's a solid and tasty choice if you need to up your caffeine intake at work.
