Bottom Line: If you are unfortunate enough to receive a defective product, your temper might percolate, like mine did, trying to resolve the problem

Product Reviewed: 4020 expresso
Bottom Line: Never buy this machine again.  The Krups 4020 is what appears a bottom of the market machine

Bottom Line: DON'T EVER BUY A KRUPS PRODUCT!!!!!  Horrible horrible machine.  First one didn't work out of the box.  Second one worked once.  Third one worked for 2 days

Product Reviewed: XP4020
Bottom Line: I would NEVER buy a Krups product again based on the "head in the sand" attitude of the NZ Krups agent (especially any that are manufactured in China)

Bottom Line: Horrible machine for the $150 price it carries.  More water than steam comes out of the steaming pipe.

Bottom Line: Good if you dont care, or dont know what you're doing, but serious buyers should drop a bit more cash for a real machine.

Bottom Line: get one if you are new to espresso making/steaming, but get it cheaper!
Nick DeJesu (quality: 5.0) 09.14.2007 Rating: 5.6

Bottom Line: A risky purchase, but maybe worth it to get the free Krups grinder? When it works, the machine makes great coffee and froth, but it will let you down when you are dying for a coffee!
