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.

  • 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.
