The Krups brand of coffee makers is ranked 13th of 17 entries from 13 manufacturers in a comparison of 2015 models conducted by Top Ten Reviews. The Breakfast Set model by the German kitchen appliance maker earned a comprehensive rating of 6.9 out of 10 points.
Top Ten Reviews scored the Krups Breakfast Set coffee maker on four criteria: design, convenience and safety, quality of carafe and quality of warranty and support. The Krups unit garnered good marks in the second and fourth categories, but subpar performance in the first and third.
Good Housekeeping, which conducted a similar comparison of 83 models of coffee makers from a diversity of brands, graded seven Krups coffee makers. One model, the Krups Cup-On-Request, earned a top grade of "A" alongside 11 other units. The unit was noted by Good Housekeeping for a quick brew time, producing hot, good-tasting coffee. The Cup-On-Request is conveniently operated, shuts down automatically and is easily cleaned up.
Consumer Search conducted a 2014 comprehensive review, based on ranked reviews from 12 sources like Consumer Reports, Amazon.com and Real Smple. Based on this synopsis, the comparison chose one best model for five different categories: best drip coffee maker, best budget drip unit, best thermal coffee maker, best budget thermal unit and best grind-and-brew model. Krups failed to take the "Best Reviewed" distinction in any of these categories.
