Steam Nozzle Broken upon arrival

Lynn, Amazon
13 June 2014
  • Summary: I've had another Krups Espresso Machine for many years and loved it. This one came with a broken steam nozzle right out of the box. Unfortunately I didn't notice until I'd thrown the box away. I have sent away for a replacement part, but after reading reviews I am not confident that it will work either. This machine is much larger than my old one, which fit on my counter well. I would not buy this model again.

Amazon Sent Me 2 Of These That Were Broken

ALEXANDER GILMOUR "ALEXANDER GILMOUR", Amazon
13 May 2014
  • Summary: And when I ended up buying a new one elsewhere, it broke within months. I have had 7 of these since 2011 and they work REALLY GOOD when they are working, but they have too many issues. The frother was actually upgraded in the newer inventory because of complaints. I got shot a dozen or so ties in the face from these tips flying off. But the new ones turn and lock on, and stay on. The other issue is water.

Espresso is not up to the standard

Seth, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: A few things impressed me and one serious issue turned me off. Pros - Very cool milk froth/steamer nozzle. This made it very easy to make some pretty good looking cappuccinos. The big CON- The expresso made was not up to my standard. The crema was lacking heavily compared to the machine I am used to (Mellita 14 bar machine) and this unit, though much nicer looking, was more expensive than the Mellita.

We love it!

Frank Holzberger, Amazon
8 March 2014
  • Summary: We love this machine - its the 3rd Krups espresso machine that we've purchased (in 20 years) and it's by far the best performing. The auto-tamp feature is great and the steamer works much better than the other 2 machines that we've had. Only wish that the water reservoir was a bit bigger.

FOR THE MONEY AND FEATURES FIVE STAR MACHINE!

Rob, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: GREAT MACHINE READ!I would like to say first that I had a very hard time choosing a espresso machine. This is the first espresso machine I have ever owned. For the money I dont know how you could expect anything more and I do not understand the bad reviews. I mean it is a three star machine compared to the high dollar machines. But for the price and features five stars. The only machines with all great reviews are $1500 +.

What happened to Krups?

Miguel Pendas, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: After having a Krups espresso machine for 20 years which worked great, it was time to replace, and I thought another Krups would be a good choice. I bought the XP5240. I was never able to froth the milk, just heat it up. And frankly, the crema from my old machine was way better. I finally took the frothing wand apart and found that a flimsy plastic part inside was broken. It's a huge hassle to get the thing back on as well because of those three little prongs.

My second Krups - preferred over DeLonghi

J. Webster, Amazon
14 October 2013
  • Summary: When my 4-year old Krups XP5220 gave out after it's daily use, I decided to look around. I did extensive reviewing and purchased a DeLonghi for about $175. After unpacking it, I simply put it back together and returned it because all the parts that looked like silver in the ad were plastic. I knew it wouldn't hold up to my daily use.
