Krups XP1500
2 Star Review  productwiki.com - Aug 23, 2011

The Krups XP1500 is a combination expresso and coffee maker. The coffee maker comes with a glass pot that has a 10 cup capacity while the espresso part comes with a glass carafe that can hold up to 4 cups of expresso. The water tank has a well defined indicator to show how much water is in the tank while the filter swings out to make it easier to get to the coffee grounds. The drip tray is removable and has a stainless steel grid. The Krups XP1500 comes with a steam nozzle to make it easy to froth milk. It includes a coffee scoop, has an illuminated on/off switch and includes a pause and serve feature. All of these features makes the Krups XP1500 good for a large family of coffee drinkers or for a small restaurant. Features 10-cup coffee capacity 4 cup expresso capacity Steam nozzle Water level indicator ... PROS: (1) users manual is fairly detailed, instructions are clear (2) capable of brewing rich, aromatic coffee thats second to none (3) solid construction will not break down with proper usage and maintenance, very stable ... CONS: (1) takes some time to get used to how to use it, need to experiment before you can brew the perfect cup (2) can clog the steam nozzle if you arent careful (3) no clock or timer built in, fully manual operation (4) fairly bulky, takes up a lot of space on the counter

3 Star Review   By member GUIDEGUIDO - Oct 3, 2006   

Strengths: Makes quick espresso

Weakness: Does not use top quality parts-- lots of plastic and glass; certainly a consumer model

I've had this unit for a little longer than a year. It's fine, but I wouldn't buy it again. It's a home model-- not industrial by any means. Both carafes are glass. The coffee pot lid is hinged and must be carefully removed if you want to use the dishwasher. The espresso lid is not meant to come off also, but it fits in my dishwasher in 1 piece. ESPRESSO The handle kept getting loose. The 3rd time we tightened it, it broke and we ordered a replacement carafe. It makes a fast cup (or two) of espresso, but the water temp exceeds 212 degrees-- not the traditional "just under boiling". The chamber lid screws on securely. The carafe base is plastic which stays firm but pops out easily if desired. I've never used the built-in steamer. COFFEE MAKER I already mentioned the dishwasher issue. The warming plate scratches easily, and has worn down significantly in a few spots. The water reservoir holds 10 cups-- a significant amount. If you add 11, it overflows through the back vent-- which in my house is very close to the electrical outlet. The glass reservoir indicator is on the right side and not easy to read. Removing the carafe mid-brew leaks a small amount of product onto the base. The coffee tastes just fine. SUMMARY I paid a little over $80 for this unit at LNT. The black color is sharp but shows dirt and dust. It makes good tasting coffee and sub-par espresso. Very easy to use. Doesn't seem geared for everyday use. It would be a nice addition to a vacation home. Espresso connoisseurs will not be impressed, but for a fast cup of espresso or cappuccino, it does a fine job.

4 Star Review   By member HerculesRockerfeller - Aug 31, 2006   

Strengths: I have had good experience with Krups in the past, and this machine appears to be of the same high-quality of other machines. Good value

Weakness: This model does not have some of the same high-quailty parts of other Krups machines (only a 1-piece espresso filter, no "perfect froth" attachment for steaming milk.)

The machine lacks the following things that some other Krups machines have: 1. It only has a 1 piece filter set for the espresso filter 2. No "perfect frothing" attachment 3. Cannot make drip coffee and espresso simultaneously 4. No attachment for espresso filter for making steamed milk. The machine is still a great value, but it lacks the above things that come with other Krups machines
