Summary: This is my third Krupps machine. The first one, which used a pressure system (not a pump) lasted for 17 years! The last one I had was the XP4000 which only lasted for 4 years. This was really my fault for using the very hard tap water that we have where I live. My latest purchase is the XP5240 (bought in a local shop) and I must say it is a great improvement over the XP4000.
Summary: Hi everyone, I decided to write this review because of all the bad reviews concerning the flaw in the steam wand (milk frother). I just want to report that Krups has finally addressed the issue, and a new wand is now available in the new machines. I live in Portugal and bought one XP5240 (in a local store) two month ago and it came with a new milk frother. With the help of a thermometer I can make perfect foam. Also, coffe is no less than perfect.
Summary: Bought this machine in September. Reported a fault on Tuesday Dec 4. Received the standard reply that they would contact me within 48 hours. As of Sat Dec 8 I am still waiting. I rang Krups who were very helpful. Apparently the number on my machine shows that it was made in June 2009. Where it had been since then - who knows. The problem turned out to be with the additional Claris filter - so problem now fixed. Great machine but after service not so hot.
Summary: This is my second Krups machine and it works up to it's name. My first machine is still functioning but I have it at my summer house. Had previously bought a Delonghi (inexpensive model around 60 quid)which I was forced to return to amazon on the grounds that it didn't make any crema at all. The Krups make excellent crema, automatically presses the coffee and gives a great final taste.
Summary: I love this gadget. We used one when on holiday in Italy and were determined to get one of our own when we returned. Decided to get one for Xmas from Santa - what a great choice of gift, love it to bits!!! Get one, so easy to use! MotoBrod.
Summary: I had a similar Krups Machine before and loved it. This one however has several imporovements. The tamping mechanism is very good and ensures that the water flows slowly enough through the coffee to produce a good strong brew. The frothing nozzle is a great improvement on the previeus version and produces a really smooth mousse every time. For it's price the machine is outstanding.
Summary: I have it for three months after another Krups held 8 years. Easy to operate, fast, strong with excellent taste. compresses Coffee by itself. Krups Implemented all the lessons learned in previous machines.

Summary: Ótima máquina, design moderno em inox. Fácil de usar, limpar e ligar. Possui sistema para desligamento automático caso fique ligada sem uso, sua bandeja coletora tem uma peça plastica que sobe quando seu nível está alto. A compactação do café é feito na própria máquina, bastando apenas regular de acordo com seu gosto. Dentre as pesquisas que fiz, a marca Krups é considerada uma das melhores de sua categoria.
Summary: Ich kannte diese Maschine bereits von meinen Schwiegereltern, die auch hochzufrieden sind. Ich selbst kann nichts schlechtes berichten, der Espresso schmeckt genial, die Handhabung ist einfach, auch die Säuberung. Ich verwende gefiltertes Wasser, muss mir also auch keine Sorgen ums Entkalken machen. Man kann/muss sowohl die Bohnenmenge, als auch die Wassermenge selbst bestimmen.
