Can 3rd party Nespresso Compatible pods work?

Some may prefer 3rd party brands as they are generally cheaper on per capsule. But not all 3rd party pods are compatible with Nespresso machines. Nespresso machine models  starting from Nespresso Innisia and Pixie onwards have switched to using thinner injection needles. These needles is only able to pierce through the Nespresso capsules which are made from aluminum. However, most 3rd party pods use plastic for their capsules and they are just too hard for the needle to pierce through.
