Product Description

The world of coffee would be half as exciting if there was not that delicious layer of milk foam sitting on top of it! From lattes to cappuccinos, the Chambord Milk Frother brings any coffee to its perfection. Simply add cold non-fat milk to the fill line before setting the lid in place. Then pull and push the plunger until you see your milk turn to a frothy foam. The volume of milk froth will approximately double. Allow the froth to sit for a minute and thicken up. If you would like hot froth, just remove the lid/plunger unit and put the carafe with frothed milk in the microwave on high for 20 seconds. Once you are ready, use a spoon to scoop out the frothy foam and top off your favorite coffee drink. The glass beaker is made of durable, heat-resistant borosilicate glass. With the Bodum Chambord Frother and a Bodum Coffee Press you can be your own barista at home! Dishwasher safe.

Perfect for making small volumes of frothed milk.
Alexandra Hess
I was replacing a broken frother, and this one's plunger was not fitted to the inside glass diameter, nor was the lid.
Amazon Customer
And on this basis alone easily worth five (5) stars.

Verified Purchase
This product froths milk very nicely and if you like extra frothy milk it is an excellent product. And on this basis alone easily worth five (5) stars. Clean-up and maintenance is a snap as the bottom portion of the frother is easily disassembled and cleaned. I purchased this as a replacement to the previous generation of Bodum Frothers and have found the following challenges while using this product:
a) while frothing the pour spout isn't properly covered by the cap and on occasion foamy milk spills onto the kitchen counter
b) the meshing seems better suited for a French press, which means separating the foam for a pretty cup display is a bit of a challenge (hint, don't use slotted portion of the cap, just pull the entire plunger mechanism out and use a spoon to separate the foam)
c) HOT WHILE HANDLING: admittedly I like my milk as close to burnt without burning, so this sucker is very hot when coming out of the microwave and this is my primary complaint. The previous version had a nice handle connected to the glass easy for gripping the smoking hot vessel while frothing milk. I still have not found a tolerable solution to this.

Good product and does what it says it will do. But if you like really hot milk for frothing you will need to find a solution for holding the hot glass in hand. Otherwise, a really good product.

The frother works extremely well, however the glass of the frother is very thin and brittle and will crack and break with the slightest impact. I have broken two already while washing dishes. There is NO REPLACEMENT glass container available, so if you break it, you spend another $20.00 to buy a replacement. Bonjour makes a frother also, and they sell a replacement glass container for about $10.00. I guess I'm clumsy, so I'm going to buy a Bonjour next time.

This little Bodum manual frother works better than any of the battery powered "wand" frothers I've tried, and nearly as well as a steam frother. Using a microwave oven, you can warm the milk in less than a minute right in the Bodum flask. Then about ten seconds of easy pumping fills the flask to overflowing with thick froth that stays fluffy in your mug. But handle the Bodum flask with care, because the glass breaks easily. I broke my first flask after about three months. But the price is so reasonable, I didn't hesitate to order a replacement.

Pros: It does the job. You get frothed milk.

Cons: There's no seal between the screen and the glass envelope, so you work really hard to make the screen take excursions through the milk and create the foam.

Nevertheless, I was happy using it, until I broke the glass. To salvage it, I ended up buying a Bonjour frother, mainly because it was the same size as the Bodum. My plan was to use the carafe and continue using the Bodum screen and plunger. That was because, like I said, I was happy with the Bodum.

When I got it, I figured, why not try the Bonjour Mechanism, since I have it.

Well, it was so much nicer and more effective than the Bodum, I haven't bothered to use the Bodum again.

Once you get the hang of pump-frothing your milk, you'll never go back! Yes, the "fragile glass carafes," ARE a problem, and why these companies continue to offer them is beyond me (thus the 4-star review instead of 5). However, what you're really buying is the clever screen pump that pushes air through the milk, expanding it into wonderful creamy froth. And guess what? When my second glass carafe broke, I discovered the frother fits perfectly into the heavy glass beer mugs in my kitchen cupboard, and you get a handle for extra stability. As far as the container being "too hot to handle," I don't have that problem with my heavy glass beer mug. Just froth first, then heat the mug (without the frothing device) for about 30 secoonds in the microwave, and watch your already fluffy foam rise even higher. Using a heavy glass beer mug, the handle never even gets hot. Voila! Problem solved!

Awesome product, if you like a latte or lots of froth,this is the easiest way to get it. It definitely works best with cold skim milk, and the longer is sits, the thicker the froth. If you use very hot coffee and add the cold milk, you got the perfect temperature! Also washes or rinses very well, I keep mine in the dish drain, so it is always readily available.

I use my 3 c. Bodum Chambord Coffee Press to froth milk. It is basically the same concept: a glass carafe and a plunger with mesh. It makes a great foam. At any rate, if you already have a small coffee press, it can probably pull double-duty as a milk frother.

The frother does a great job, produces nice thick foam, and is very easy to clean. I get the best results using nonfat milk, frothing it cold and then zapping it for 20 seconds or so in the microwave, then letting it sit a minute or two to thicken.

As noted by other reviewers, milk from the plunger rod does tend to leak out of the cap as you plunge up and down. I wrap a piece of paper towel around the plunger where it comes out of the hole on the cap, and that takes care of the problem. (This issue and the fact that the container doesn't have a handle so you need to use an oven glove to hold it when it's been microwaved took my review down from 5 stars to 4 stars.)

One reviewer said that dirty water got trapped in the cap and ran down into the froth. I have no idea what he/she means. There is no place in the cap for anything to get trapped, and why dirty water would be there anyway is anyone's guess--unless the reviewer washes dishes in a puddle of muddy water.

Both parts of the frother are dishwasher-safe (top rack). I use my frother daily but don't run my dishwasher every day, so I wash it by hand in hot water immediately after use and put it in the dishwasher whenever I run it. Every few days, while I'm drinking my morning coffee, I leave the plunger in a cup of hot water with some white vinegar added for 5 - 10 minutes so that no milk solids build up and turn sour in the mesh. (A friend had a similar frother years ago, didn't do this, and one day realized the mesh part smelled very bad and couldn't at that point be properly cleaned.)

Followup (Jan 2011): Some reviewers have complained about the fragility of the glass container. I was very careful with mine, but a month ago (one month short of two years after purchase), it broke. I picked it up one morning to fill it and the bottom fell out, having cracked in a complete circle. I still use the frother in a regular mug. Works fine.
