The Pros:Powerful steamer that produces consistently rich espresso.
The Cons:Pump mechanism must be thoroughly cleaned before each use to avoid risk of steam wand blockage. Water tank can be awkward to remove and refill. Waiting for water/milk to heat up can be time-intensive.
The Saeco Nina is described as being an entry level espresso machine, meaning that it is supposed to be easy to use and has a low cost, but overall it is not the best product out there. It is described as requiring traditional "hands-on" brewing.

One good feature of the Saeco Nina 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 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.
