Great Machine but with Milk Problems
We have had the machine for 16 months and everything has been going perfectly except the milk frothing.
Now with minimum milk in jug the milk gets to boiling point and overflows have to stop it manually. Maybe a thermostat problem. Now we have the inconvenience of returning the machine to manufacturer and waiting for it to be returned.
Purchased in December 2017.
Great replacement for our Citiz and milk
We had a Citiz and milk for years and it recently bit the dust - it got a lot of use in the years we had it.
We decided to upgrade from the Citiz to a machine where you froth your own milk but did not want to pay the money for a Creatista Plus as we still go out for coffee on the weekends and sometimes buy one during the week.
The Creatista was on special at DJs so we bit the bullet and bought one - such a great machine.
The ability to froth the milk to the temperature you want is a bonus we never had on the Citiz and the coffee is still consistent.
Purchased in February 2019 for $449.00.
I love this machine!!!
I recently purchased the BNE600 in Champagne. I find the little screen for selecting the type of coffee, milk temperature and texture so easy and fun to use. I have found the coffee nicer than any manual machine I have used, and I like that it uses a wand to froth the milk, but has a temperature detector underneath where the jug sits, so it turns itself off once the milk reaches the chosen temperature. I was also impressed by the recycling program for used pods.
Perfectly steamed milk, and excellent coffee
I have had another (cheaper) Nespresso machine with a milk frother. The milk steamer is far superior. The machines is very adjustable - coffee amount, milk temperature, milk froth etc. It is easy to move between options. Although I liked the milk/coffee temperature, some that tried it thought my coffee was too cold even on the highest temperature - this depends on preference.
Best Coffee Machine
Great quality unit. It makes delicious coffee and is easy to use. I normally place everything away but this machine adds a touch of class to my clinically clean kitchen. Ideal for a fast espresso or a cappuccino. I would highly recommend this model for any Italian as the crema is perfetto!
Great coffee machine
The reason I only gave 4 stars for this machine is because initially I had some problems with this machine. It turned off by itself when frothing the milk every time we made a latte (appears it didn't have this problem when making other coffee). I returned the machine and got another brand new one. The same problem happened with the second machine. I returned the 2nd machine and got the 3rd one which has been working great for over 1 year. It makes great coffee and many of our friends like the coffee and the machine itself when they come over our place. I noticed from other reviews other people also had the same problem like I did with the first 2 machines. Breville/Nespresso need to look at this issue seriously and have it fixed permanently. In short, I am very happy with this machine except for the problem I had with the first 2 machines.
GREAT coffee machine
What a beautiful product! Great coffee machine with coffee choices and milk froth settings to suit your preference. It heats up within 10 seconds from turning on. It produces superb creamy froth just like a barista from a cafe. It's been saving us hundreds of dollars so far by enjoying the coffees from home. It costs just around $1.20 (a capsule and milk) instead of paying for a $3 - $5 per cup. You do the maths absolutely worth it!
It’s good but just good and cannot auto clean steam wand
At first, I did love this creatista. But there is a big problem that many times the machine just turn off immediately in the latter stage of the milk frothing. It doesn’t auto purge to rinse itself even though I follow the instructions to return its down position. And I need to turn on the machine AGAIN to choose steam purge for cleaning steam wand. It’s really annoying and seems not worth to a buy a machine like that cannot auto clean and just quickly and suddenly turn off even you don’t know does it finish the milk frothing.
BTW, I bought it TWO weeks ago!
Great way to save money on coffee - and get consistency too!
We love using this to make coffee at home. Fast start up, choose an option and get your coffee shot / ristretto etc, fill the milk jug, hit start and walk away - it has a temperature sensor with 5 settings. I also like how it sprays some water out of the steaming wand automatically after you finish - you do have to wipe the outside of course.
Great machine, we can’t live without it anymore. Quick and silent, easy to clean.
The best thing of this machine is the milk frother, absolutely fantastic, the texture is really smooth. It works great with plant based milk as well such as coconut, almond and soy. The only downside is that the pod dispenser is small, nothing major though. We still recommend it to all our friends.
Taste as good as coffee shop, frog is smooth but no custom control
I think I love it all overal, pack with nesspresso pods I saved a lot of money from spending at coffee shop. The only downside is no custom control on the froth which my friend who is barrister said he can't do the art much with it. But I love its frog smoothness and automation and easy to clean that saved me a lot of time and for its price, I think I got the best choice
Very easy to use and perfect coffee
This is the second Nespresso machine I own. It trumps last model I had which is a Lattissima. Quick and easy to make cafe standard coffee and it's fool proof. Everyone can make perfect coffee with this machine. Love the large water reservoir and the slick design. Easy to clean is also another plus feature for Creatista. Love it.
Takes excessive to a whole new level
At first I loved the look of this machine, the coffee tastes fine, and it’s really easy to use but the constant cleaning is way over the top, or inefficient, and it uses a lot of water in the process. We’ve tried a new wand nozzle, and Nespresso’s own descaler. We don’t live in a hard water area but this machine now wants to do a nozzle clean after every coffee. Nespresso have supplied us a basic machine but are yet to collect our Creatista.
Excellent machine for all types of coffee!
I always love the convenience of capsule machines. It produces excellent, black, coffee in no time, no mess, but if you prefer your coffee with milk, the milk quality that comes out of the frother is not so good.
This machine perfectly addresses that. I can now get barista quality milk with its easy to use steaming wand, and best of all, it's really easy to clean and maintain. Just wipe the wand with wet cloth and you're done!
My only complaint is the screen contrast. Under certain lighting it's a bit hard to see from angles, but that's a not a big deal.
Best capsule machine
I can't believe the taste of this coffee. I have stopped buying takeaway coffees and now just use this pod machine. I have used a few pod machines in the past so didn't have high hopes but I was pleasantly surprised with how good this tastes. Definitely worth the price.
Not cheap but worth it
This is the first coffee machine ever bought, and we chose to go with a capsule model to make it as easy on us as possible. We're pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to get good results out of it. However, the menu system can be difficult to use at times as the buttons and knobs aren't intuitive to use at all. And it was not cheap, as this Nespresso machine is one of the premium models.Also, submit the capsule rebate straightaway as it expires every month.
Excellent product with one Improvement please!
Am happy with this product but as a person with a vision problem I find the menu screen difficult to see at times. The screen contrast is where I have an issue and it would be better if it was a black background with white symbols and text. This would be more alighted to Nespresso packaging etc. Does a good job of making coffee but I find I need to adjust the temp settings to
Maximum for my preference. Once this is done it does remember the settings.
The quality and final outcome of coffee is barista quality! A touch of a button gives you perfect silky froth which not even your average barista can master! And this would be the reason you’d purchase this machine!
You literally select the temperature of the milk you like and select the amount of froth (from 1 - 4) and leave it do its job... just over a minute and voila perfect frothed milk suitable to do café art! You have to clean the milk element immediately (the inside self cleans after every use)
This machine is fiddly and takes a bit longer to use /program though in comparison to others that I’ve had from the Nespresso range. But once you get the hang of it and know it’s the best coffee you can have without putting much effort in you’ll be fine haha
The gold standard for great home coffee results
This was an excellent, albeit expensive, purchase that looks fantastic in the blueberry colour.
Not been serious coffee connoisseurs, we wanted a coffee machine that accepted Nespresso pods, that also had an integrated milk foaming wand, so we could get that home barista feel for us and our guests.
This machine has met our expectations. We’ve been using it for a few months and we’re very happy! The wand is automatic, where you can apply the correct amount of steam and temperature to the milk that you’re looking for. Fool proof and quick, but makes us feel a bit like baristas!
It’s quick start too (10 seconds) and has a big display on the top for selecting the drink type you are making. It came with a small metal milk jug, although we bought a larger one to make more milk for larger drinks at one time. It also came with a selection of the full range of Nespresso pods - great for finding out which flavour you prefer!
We’ve had good and bad experiences with Breville appliances in the past, however this appliance has been worth the premium price. The common trait with Breville appliances always seems to be the modern, simplistic style and functionality of the appliances. This has been no different, and we are very happy with our purchase, and to be able to use this daily.
Loving it!! No need for exxy $4 coffees anymore!
We purchased a Breville Creatista from the Good Guys just over a month ago, and we are regularly having about 10-15 coffees a week, and we are absolutely loving it!! I love the way that it is pretty much idiot proof! The LCD display lets you select exactly what type of coffee you want (i.e. Cappachino, Flat White, Long Black etc), you can choose how strong you want the coffee, how hot you want it, and how frothy you want your milk. The milk frother is abslutely brilliant!! Get cafe style froth (really hot) every time!! Can't believe a home coffee machine could be this good!! We love it!! No more trips required to our local cafe every day!! :)
