Will Yamaha EF2000iS inverter/generator run a Nespresso coffee machine?

We want to run our Nespresso Pixie coffee machine on board and plan to buy a Yamaha EF2000iS inverter/generator.

The Nespresso is rated 220 volts and 1260W. The rated output of the generator is 220 volts at 1600W.

This seems sufficient but I have been warned that start up power draw might be an issue?

Grateful for any advice.

It should not be a problem.

The 1260 watts of the Nespresso is all resistance. Resistance loads have no startup peak. You should be fine.
