Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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.

The plunger in the frother does not fit well. We have had almost no success in frothing. We should have returned it, but didn't. Now it just sits unused on the shelf.Published 13 months ago by Steve B
