I have bought one in the past, but it has been unavailable for several months. Starbucks customer service is unhelpful and has no idea when they will get more. At first they told me that they didn't sell it, and when I asked again they tell me it's back ordered. Unfortunately the machine is inconvenient to use without this part and we (like other reviewers here) manage to occasionally throw ours away without realizing it. I believe this is more evidence that Starbucks is no longer supporting their Verismo line, so I would advise potential customers to avoid buying them.
This is a vital component of the machine, as it catches all of the discarded pods. However, it is easily thrown away. While I appreciate the fact that Starbucks sells these as a separate accessory, I am extremely ticked off that shipping was just as expensive as the part! I wish we had done more research before buying the Verismo.
The container for used pods is too easily tossed in the trash by distracted, busy owners. I have had to purchase this twice, and it is taped to the other components of the machine. Ridiculous. At $4.95 for shipping, we've wasted $20 on this. If it is lost once more, I will buy a machine from a different manufacturer.
I like this one better than the original, because it holds the drippings. This one is not a basket type design, with all the openings in the bottom. It keeps the bottom of the pot cleaner.
I like that this part is now fully enclosed! No more "drain" in it makes for less liquid in the system! But, it should be attached to the base so it doesn't get tossed in the garbage can by accident! That's what happened to me - and, that's how I know about this specific piece - the other piece fell off when my house guest threw it away by accident!
Threw my original away by mistake when dumping used pods. Pleased that I get get parts for the verismo.
The original pod container had drainage holes in bottom, the reaplacement does not. Extra coffee from used pod now collected in the container . This is an improvement over original.
When the pod holder for our Verismo system escaped and ran away I was afraid that the system would no longer be useful. Nothing that special about the replacement other than it was available. It is so hard to find a part for any apppliance. I was very pleased Starbucks offers these parts.
Personally, I would prefer that the receptacle for used pods had a solid bottom. The grid design allows fluids to drain around the bottom of the cup. Just too messy.
