The instructions say, warms up in three seconds. Not 100% accurate, more like about 10 seconds from completely off to actually delivering espresso or steaming milk. That's far better than the standard Nespresso machines that take around two minutes to warm up.
This uses a lot more electricity than the other models. The heating element and pump seem to be much larger. If your kitchen circuit is close to capacity, best to not run this and the toaster at the same time.
There is a small learning curve and not everything is super high quality. The steamer is super easy to use. However after you steam milk, have a towel ready to wipe down the steamer right away. Because when you return the steam wand back to home, the steamer purges automatically. You want the milk off the wand before it purges.
There are a couple of seemingly flimsy parts. The espresso tray feels kind of cheap. This is the little drawer that slides out for shorter cups, like an espresso cup. I would have loved the drawer to be spring loaded and to push out completely. Instead it bumps out a little bit and then you have to pull it out the rest of the way. The spent capsule tray has a loose fit - it just doesn't feel expensive.
The selection knob works backwards - when you turn the knob clockwise, the selections move from right to left.
The screen is easy to read. And the whole thing is infinitely adjustable. And super intuitive to make adjustments, unlike Nespresso machines that require some crazy button pressing to change the volume.
This will make three espresso sizes - ristretto, espresso, and lungo. The volume for each of those can be adjusted, if you like your espresso slightly larger, well press the select button, and then turn the dial to increase the volume. It is as simple as that.
It has four frothed milk drink settings - flat white - steamed milk with almost not foam (a cafe au lait) and espresso; cafe latte - steamed milk with a little bit of foam and espresso; cappuccino - truly steam foam and espresso; latte machiatto - combination milk on the bottom and foam on the top and espresso; and simply steam.
For each of those drinks, the milk temperature and amount of foaming can be adjusted.
The milk steaming / foaming is fully automatic. You pour milk into the included carafe, lift the steam wand with the ring, put the carafe in the machine, lower the wand, and the steaming starts automatically. No need to stir, or move the carafe. The head has multiple holes to stir the milk and foam at the same time. The Nespresso pump works to pump hot steam into the milk, and then a block heater creates high pressure steam at the end to finish the foaming. Temperatures are incredibly reproducible.
The water reservoir is huge. About double the size of any other Nespresso machine. There is a unique low water indicator. The bottom tray holds a lot of overflow. There is a red float that pops up when the tray is filling up.
I have owned and own many Nespresso machines. Starting with a D290 that was retired four years ago after making thousands of Nespresso. I used a Nespresso U for several months and gave that to my sister. I have a Essenza for travel. My wife has a Pixie at school. And the red Citiz is being replaced by this Creatista Plus. I have made thousands of Nespresso. In the long history, only one machine has ever acted up - that original D290, it actually still works, it just had trouble with preheating sometimes.
By far, the best machine of all that I have ever used is this Creatista Plus. Everything came together exactly right with this machine. They got the steaming perfect. And it produces the correct temperature right from the very first espresso made. Other machines require a water only warm up. This machine does not.
Best investment ever. The machine is sold by Breville - where ever you can find those appliances, you'll find this machine. The service and warranty are all covered by Nespresso.
Truly a gorgeous machine.
I then tried a Nespresso shot and liked it. Very good ; and very little thinking involved. I was considering their Evoluo vertuloline system with frother bundle. Just not sold on the centrifugal force to extract espresso; and their pods were expensive with no third party supplier.
So I ended up deciding on a original line Nespresso machine with separate frother. Luckily, just before Black Friday, I noticed this machine and saw a video review. Since the milk is heated to a thermostat temp, it should get hot enough. I pulled the trigger....
1) beautiful machine; chrome; and small size 8 inches wide
2) makes great espresso with presets for ristretto, espresso, or lungo. And all presets are adjustable for volume.
3) also presets for latte, cappuccino, flat white, or just milk. And all can be user adjusted for milk temp; and liquid/foam ratio
I can get fantastic microbubbles; I can get milk so hot it tastes scalded.....greater than 170 f; I backed off temp setting back to ideal , which corresponds to about 150 f.
It is crazy easy to use; and clean (milk wand automatically water purges after use) So easy my 16 y/o daughter learned how to use machine CORRECTLY (she has not broken it, unlike her cell phones) in under 15 minutes.
I also enjoy the no-brained espresso capsules. Makes great espresso. I now can tell which varieties I like and don't like.....and it had nothing to do with how I set up machine (unlike Saeco Xelsis).
And I got it for $419!!!!!!
Also, water reservoir is fairly large. I guesstimate at least 10 milk based drinks per fill ......not really sure but definitely large enough; and easy finger ring holder to lift up, fill, and replace water reservoir. Sounds trivial, but all the other water tanks more awkward to lift and move.
As for costs of capsules:
It came with a Nespresso sampler pack. I am new to Nespresso but found their identification system extremely tedious. Nothing written on capsule; just different color. (Decaf had a red dot on bottom .....but who the hell cares about decaf!). Every time I chose a capsule, I had to look at box to identify name; and then look at manual to see what the actual coffee was . No markings for lungo vs regular vs ristretto. No number on capsule telling it's boldness/strength.
I ordered a bunch of capsules (sampler from Gourmesso.com)......I think my average cost after coupon was about $0.40 per capsule. And each capsule has a label for what it was; strength; and lungo vs espresso. Though reviews of these as compared to Nespresso were not as good , I honestly though many of them were on par with Nespresso. I also bought a brand from Bed Bath Beyond that was ok; but each capsule was individually wrapped in separate pouch ; unless opened , would not fit in my capsule storage carousel.
Only one so far is the container that holds the spent capsules. When it gets full, it prevents a new capsule from properly loading (capsule gets crushed incorrectly). I have now learned to just empty every day . Very easy and it holds about 10 ? spent capsules. I wish there was a sensor telling you to empty it
Final verdict: 5 stars ; no regrets
I would highly recommend this product!
Did I mention the drinks taste great???
