If you're a fan of cappuccinos, lattes, hot chocolate, or other drinks that use hot, frothy milk (and really, who isn't?), then Capresso's FrothXpress should become an indispensable part of your kitchen collection. After it's been turned on and warmed up for two minutes, it's easy to use. Just fill the water tank (which is in the actual machine), then fill the milk tank (which is a separate unit), and attach them. From that moment, it's just a matter of putting a cup under the spout and pressing the button--voilà, steamed frothy milk for a variety of treats. The milk temperature is adjustable from 120 to 170 degrees F, and the frother has 1,220 watts of power, as well as a stainless-steel ThermoBlock that ensures the aluminum parts don't touch the steam, a nice safety feature. The FrothXpress measures 8-3/4 by 6-1/2 by 8-3/4 inches (length by width by height), and looks sharp in gleaming bright black plastic. --A.J. Rathbun

I called the company, which acknowledged this fact.
Mary Collette Rogers
The orange indicator light turns on, but when the Safety Steam Button is pressed, the milk doesn't come out of the nozzle.

I would highly recommend this product and Capresso as a company.

I still use the automatic frother when I am running a little late on a weekday morning, but not on weekends when I have time to do it right. It produces steamed milk and froth more conveniently than the steam attachment on my espresso machine, but the milk is rarely hot enough and there is not enough foam for me. Cleanup is very convenient. As the machine continues to produce steamed milk for several seconds after it is turned off it takes a bit of practice to avoid overfilling the cup when steaming directly into the cup. I use ut, but I would not miss it and would not replace it if I did not have it.

Someone told me about this frother, but she had not used one. I looked for reviews and was not entirely convinced by them. So I put the Capresso Froth Xpress on my Christmas list. I received a black one (wanted white but out of stock), have been using it for almost a week and I love it. All the things listed in the other reviews are true. I have not had difficulty with the temperature of the milk however, and we make mochas/lattes twice a day. My husband commented about so many little parts (there are 4), since you must assemble them and disassemble them each time to wash them, but I'm the one who does it.. and it literally takes seconds! I bought a little plastic mesh basket at the store for $1 and I just put them in it to drain-dry after use. My former frother/steamer was part of a coffee machine (not an espresso frother). It had only two parts but one had to be cleaned with a brush and the other was a milk tank which had to be cleaned with at least a sponge - it couldn't be simply rinsed out. Worst of all, the smaller part wore out twice a year and I needed to replace the entire tank assemblage. I bought the Capresso because DeLonghi no longer manufactures that assemblage!! My Capresso came with a parts replacement list and you can replace any small piece you need. Further, Capresso has a website with plenty of information. (I still think buying from Amazon is best though.. great price and reliable service.) The only thing I don't care about the Capresso is the Tupperware-like container that holds the milk to be frothed. It just seems too bulky to clean and use for only two people. But the machine comes with a small tube that can be placed directly into a carton of milk. I take that tube and place it a smaller container of milk.Read more ›

This frother works very well, and I was surprised because of problems with other similar products. It is an easy cleanup (a big concern) and it heats the milk quickly. You have to fiddle with the petcock to get the right mix of creamy froth and steamy froth, but in the end you will get what you want from this machine. N.B. I have not owned it long enough to know anything about its durability. A note to purchasers: you have to make certain that the sleeve that contacts the ring from whence the hot water comes must make FIRM CONTACT or the thing simply won't work. Just make sure each piece is seated properly and let the machine do the work.

We're into our second unit. The first one lasted just a year. However, since our family enjoys the FrothXpress, we decided to spring for another one. Beats running out on cold nights to Starbucks, not that there's anything wrong with that...

Tips: Before use, squeeze the horizontal parts together and push the spout upwards. This prevents loss of pressure. Also, the easiest way to clean is just run fresh water through it, as you do milk. No need to disassemble to clean.

To begin with it may help you know my coffee making and drinking habits. I make my espresso using a stove top device (traditional), I use cafe Pilon coffee (after many trials this I find the best), I normally make the espresso the night before because as most coffee fans know cold coffee added to hot milk tastes far better. I drink about 3-8 cups per day.

I was initially disappointed that the button "broke" within a week of use, turns out this is a safety feature, if the tube the steamed milk comes out of is not pushed all the way up to the machine it disables the button. So back in action after a few minutes of troubleshooting, I will be suggesting to the comapny that they include this in their instructions or web site.

Temp vs froth, as is clearly stated in the manual and online the frothing doesn't produce much temparature and the steam doesn't produce much froth. So I find it best to heat half the milk to the desired temp. I easily got it to 140 degrees, but I prefer my drinks ready at 120, then move to full froth mode. Voila a perfect cup of hot and very frothy milk.

I did find some variation in the finished product, but cetainly less than with any cappuccino machine steamer I have owned, which has the additional headache of more intense cleaning, slower warm up time and as time goes by the fun of using needles etc to remove blockages (lime etc) from the tube which always seems to happen when running late.

I would suggest that those who gave such negative reviews be not too savvy on reading simple instructions and applying them to the real world, probably the same people who would call my tech support line before actually checking remote control batteries etc.
