The Krups XP2010 is probably the worst piece of Kitchen equipment I have ever had (and I'm in my 50's).
First the espresso maker was intermintent, making pulsing noises and then the display flashing on and off - no coffee.
Now the filter coffee maker has failed because when the pot is under the filter-holder it no longer opens the valve - so no coffee.
It's going back, we intend to get a refund as this is equipment is not fit for purpose.

The coffee jug always dribbled as I poured, unless I was very very... (read more)
