Cons

May leak excess water/coffee fluid when brewing larger amounts of product

3 agree

Automated water-heating preparation can be time-intensive - must be executed prior to each separate brew

2 agree

Portafilter can be difficult to replace after cleaning - fits very tightly into the rest of the machine

1 agrees

Pump unit must be re-primed before using the steam wand - can become tiresome after prolonged use

1 agrees

Intricate cleaning of plastic and rubber parts can be difficult and awkward

 The Saeco Nina Bar is a low cost, low quality product. It is described as requiring traditional "hands-on" brewing and is perfect for an "entry level" consumer. One good feature of the Saeco Nina Bar is that is is able to handle ESE Pods. This means that prepackaged shots can be used to brew single cups, a great feature for the coffee inexperienced who just want something simple and easy to use. The Saeco Nina Bar has a stainless steel boiler and heating element which is great for durability. It includes a cup warmer, basic button controls and a temperature ready light that are designed to make it easy to use for the inexperienced. It has a cup warming surface and a built in grinder.

there is no "built in grinder" in this model.
the only difference from the Nina model is a touch
electronic dosing system and control panel instead of the manual control
and automatic Cappuccinatore frother.
it is gorgeous and makes a good brew
so what do you want more from it?
longevity(questionable. ABS plastic is quite durable)?
metal instead of plastic in Panarello frother?
OK I agree on that one
