1. Aesthetic Exterior

This machine is an ideal example of what people expect from Breville's coffee machines: looks and great quality. Made with a combination of glossy plastic and cast aluminum, the Creatista Uno gives the look of a large bean-to-cup machine. The coffee maker has a beautiful black sesame color that adds to the look of any kitchen. Some people prefer to keep it in their kitchens, while others like to have it in their offices. It is a simple machine that does not require users to know a lot of technicalities. The coffee maker has various buttons that allow you to programme the machine according to your choice.

2. Fully Automatic Steam Wand

The Creatista Uno is manufactured to make things easier for coffee lovers. It comes with an automatic steam wand which proves this point. The machine has three buttons on its left side and three on its right. The buttons present on the right side of the machine allow users to control the automatic steam wand function. These three buttons allow users to control the temperature of the milk, froth amount and steaming process. This function makes the Creatista Uno unique amongst the rest of the models. People who love milk-based coffee with minimum efforts will always choose this coffee maker.

3. Micro Foam Milk Technology

Along with the automatic steam wand, the coffee maker comes with a micro foam technology.  This feature makes the milk frothing process simpler and easier. All you have to do is fill up the jug with the required amount of milk and then press the steamer button. Based on the froth and temperature settings, the Creatista Uno automatically creates textures and steams your milk. Due to the presence of air, the process begins with a bubbly texture of milk but these bubbles disappear as the process proceeds. To brew a perfect drink of your choice, you will be required to change the froth and temperature settings according to your preference.

4. Auto Clean Function

The Creatista Uno is extremely simple to use and requires little maintenance. Firstly, the machine lets you set the water hardness with the help of a strip that lets you test the water. All of this can be done by following the instructions given on the manual that comes with the machine. The coffee maker also has a descaling light that alerts the users whenever the machine requires descaling. The Creatista Uno has an automatic steam wand that makes the cleaning process easier as it purges itself. This function of the machine saves a lot of time and effort.


1. Noisy

The Creatista Uno is a versatile coffee maker that lets the consumer brew two different cup sizes. You can brew a lungo (5 ounce) and an espresso (1.35 ounce) at the simple touch of a button. People who prefer iced coffee can add a few cubes of ice cubes to their favorite cup of drink. Despite all of these advantages, this coffee maker may not be a good choice for people who like to avoid machines that create noise while brewing coffee. If you are one of those, then it is recommended that you look for other options as the Creatista Uno may not be suitable for you.

2. Auto Purge Function Creates a Mess

One of the main features that make the Creatista Uno unique amongst the lot is its easy-to-use feature. The machine has an extremely simple interface that allows the users to brew their coffee without any unnecessary complications. It is a coffee maker that does not require a lot of maintenance and supports automatic clean function. The automatic steam wand purges itself automatically so that users would not have to clean it every now and then. Even though this feature is useful it creates a whole lot of mess on the countertop which requires the users to put in extra effort to clean it up.
