Dead out of the box; replacement came fast

Rakman, Amazon
19 November 2012
  • Summary: Just received this, and fresh out of the box it did not work, at all. Zero stars. Waiting for replacement from amazon. Will update to see if the replacement works. UPDATE: Amazon shipped a replacement very quickly, which arrived within 48 hours. The machine works fine.

Krups Proving Satisfactory and in Demand, Steamer wand failures experience.

Peter Lehman, Amazon
16 December 2010
  • Summary: I ordered this Krups after returning the Saeco Aroma. I had been concerned about the frothing attachment based on the reviews. I noticed the Krups web site acknowledged redesigning the frothing attachment. I do not know if the machine delivered represents the new design or the one with which so many customers had concerns. This Krups is very similar to my mid 90's model which proved very reliable for 18 years.

wanted to love it

Aynee J. Osborn, Amazon
26 March 2010
  • Summary: We also had a Breville but took it back every year for a replacement- seems to be the norm these days- Breville is no longer making this model btw ($399 retail) So we got this Krups and I really like it for all the same reasons as other reviewers. HOWEVER - after 10 days the steaming arm would not stay attached properly and the pressure of the steam blows it off - which can be dangerous with hot steam coming at you. Very disappointed.

Very good cofee but the frother isn't

Migreis, Amazon
12 July 2012
  • Summary: Bought the machine about a month ago and I love it, unfortunately the frother just isn't any good, not because it doesn't properly, it just isn't any good because the arm of the frother just broke on its fourth usage. I have just asked for a replacement, hope Krups as revised the design of the part. If not maybe I will give it an even worse result.

Disappointed.

B. Dinsdale, Amazon
9 October 2011
  • Summary: Great coffee maker, good quality build, except for the frother,the plastic frother kept blowing off and spraying hot water/milk every where. My wife was frightened to use it after that, so we sent it back. If Krups were to modify the frother,I would not hesitate to purchase another.

Moyen en double café

Herve N., Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: La fonction café avec 2 tasses est moyenne comme s'il y avait 1 manque de pression. L'eau s'écoule très (trop) doucement. Par contre, aucun Pb quand on fait un seul café Enfin, la buse permet de faire un chocolat chaud léger et onctueux.

Chromage du porte filtre travail d'amateur!

Mr. Henri Anfossi, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: Je suis satisfait de la cafetière qui fait un très bon café, sauf qu'il faut prévoir de nombreux porte filtre de rechange, car le chromage, sur base alu ne tient pas. Ni la marque ni les vendeurs n'ont l'air de s'en inquiéter.

Obligation de racheter un porte-filtre (30€) tous les 3 ans environ.

Blanche, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: Cette machine, comme plusieurs autres machines à expresso Krups, utilise le PORTE FILTRE référencé MS-622248 qui intègre le filtre "dans le manche". Le porte filtre est cette grande louche à manche noir avec l'emplacement pour la poudre de café. Le MS-622248 comporte un défaut de conception. Sa durée de vie est de 2 à 4 ans . Il faut donc fréquemment changer le porte filtre entier (l'élément complet y compris le manche). Cout environ 30€....

Если часто делаете капучино - это не ваша модель

Corthead, Onliner
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Кофеварку нам подарили. Пользуемся уже более 1,5 года. В целом все хорошо, за исключением регулярных поломок насадки капучинатора, в итоге купили отдельный.
  • Pros: - хороший вкус кофе (даже из недорогих зерен), - легко ухаживать
  • Cons: - каждые 3 месяца ломается насадка капучинатора. Сервис признает дефект и меняет по гарантии, пока та действует.

Krups XP 5240

Waltraud Jung, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: Ich kenne ein Vorgängermodell. Es hat sich eigentlich nicht viel geändert. Ich finde von Vorteil, dass man auch Pads benutzen kann. Allerdings bleibt, entgegen der Beschreibung, immer noch Wasser nach Benutzung im Filtereinsatz stehen. Der Geschmack des Kaffees ist gut, die Crema in Ordnung. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist in Ordnung.
