    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • works great for me!

    Mar 1, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: HOT espresso. Price. Ease of use.
    Cons: Instruction manual, if experienced espresso making person you will be fine though.

    Summary: My second steam espresso maker bit the dust so I decided to do some research before blowing another $30. I found that the steam machines can give a burned taste to the espresso which I had noticed frequently. Now that I knew what was causing that ... read more

  • Great machine!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great foam, hot milk, hot espresso with very nice crema, price.
    Cons: Wish steamer could produce more steam before needing to reheat again. No microfoam.

    Summary: ***Update 2012***Well, four years have passed and now the machine rarely produces decent foam. I've replaced the frothting wand, but it still doesn't produce foam as it did. I'm considering buying a new machine. ****I bought ... read more

  • It's been improved

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good coffee. Good froth. Solid machine.
    Cons: Warranty repair can take a while

    Summary: I bought one of these before reading the negative reviews. I'd like to report that the machine seems to have been improved by the manufacturer. The pump gave out after a month or so, so Krups told me where to send it. It ended up being 30 days ... read more

  • Krups XP 4000 Espresso Machine

    Aug 28, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice heavy filter holder and filters /Looks nice
    Cons: Weak steamer, bad steamer faucet, 4- 5 min to foam milk/ can't micro foam

    Summary: My first comment about this machine is it is sub-standard. I had a problem with my Krups NOVO 3000 FNC2 Espresso Machine ( $199.00) and brought it back to Bed Bath and Beyond. They did not carry it anymore so they gave me it's new equivalent, XP 4000. I ... read more

  • Krups XP4030 - It's Just Awful!

    Jul 11, 2010 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: looks nice
    Cons: Terrible instruction manual; terribly noisy; horribly designed coffee-making process - multiple complicated steps; doesn't work

    Summary: Was given the Krups XP4030 in 2008, and I have tried to make Cappuccino with it about least 7-8 times since (so infrequently because it is such a horrible experience to use it!).The instruction manual is indecipherable and ludicrously ... read more

  • Badly designed machine

    Rated Show
    Pros: Good cup of espresso.
    Cons: Useless for cappucino - better to buy a battery operated frother.

    Summary: Bought on features, would not froth milk properly and after brew much water on used coffee in basket. Complained to Krups. Was told no warranty as bought from unofficial supplier. Supplier intervened. Apology from Krups who said they would repair ... read more

  • Piece of crap.

    Pros: Looks ok
    Cons: Junk.

    Summary: The first one didn't work. Returned it. Apparently the pump was broken. They "fixed" it and returned it to me. Still does not work. Makes espresso only when it feels like it. Forget about steam. It just spits water. Really. A piece of crap. On top of it, ... read more

  • Would not recommend XP 4000

    Rated Show
    Pros: attractive appearance heavy filter that doesn't fall out in trash espresso is good
    Cons: steam/froth function is horrible drip tray too small, overflows easily

    Summary: I got this for Christmas, to replace a Hamilton Beach steam espresso machine. I was excited to have a pump system, and looked forward to even better lattes. I am SO disappointed with the steaming and frothing functions. I used to be able to make ... read more

  • Broken steamer

    Rated Show
    Pros: Good looking machine, well designed visually, feels solid, espresso tastes great.
    Cons: steamer didn't work out of the box; pump seems loud maybe.

    Summary: Crap, I wished I'd read that last person's review before I bought one. I just got my XP 4000 and my steam spigot has the same problem he described -- it starts okay with a stream of steam and within 30 seconds it's sputtering water and only gets the milk ... read more

  • This machine is unsafe

    Not rated yet
    Pros: Build heavy and solid
    Cons: Unsafe

    Summary: About five days ago I purchased a Krups XP4000. The problem I am having is that the piece that attaches to the steam nozzle, (cappuccino accessory), becomes detached during use and blasts hot liquid and steam for a two or three foot radius. This has ... read more

    Pros: great espresso with nice crema, looks great, removable tank
    Cons: slow steamer, small tank

    Summary: I bought this at Bed bath and Beyond after having bad luck with both Gaggia and Saeco machines I bought online. I had a Gaggia espresso deluxe that was made great espresso and lattes but only lasted 2 months before the boiler died and would not heat up. ... read more

  • AWFUL! FROTHING STEAMER USELESS!!!

    Dec 19, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: It can be returned!
    Cons: There is simply NO WAY you will ever get ANY froth.

    Summary: The LACK OF QUALITY of this KRUPS has forever changed our opinion this brand! We wanted to upgrade from a Mr. Coffee ECM20 to a pump machine. The Krups was a splurge for us. We disliked the cheap parts on the Mr. Coffee, which we replaced constantly. ... read more
