Great price, does the job wonderfully, nothing to complain!!
on June 5, 2013
Had it for a month, so far so good; buying another one for office.
I love espresso, especially cappuccino, and have used espresso machine before with steam frother built in; I bought the machine from starbucks too, which wasn't cheap, however, this little machine produces froth so much better than I expected, much better than the froth from the espresso machine. The froth came out dense, creamy and sweet, just the way at espresso cafe. The bubbles are very fine, and dense, not large bubbles, with lots of holes.
2. Quality and Size
The quality is built well, inside is not flimsy, but well made non stick material, and cordless feature is great in the office or at home. Design is also sleek, and the size is perfect for frother, comparable to a normal frothing cup of a espresso machine, intended for one cup cappuccino or latte. I like that better, since it tastes better, one cup at a time, rather than one big pitcher. The machine is easy to rinse/clean because of non stick coating, and comes with 2 froth inserts.
3. Price and Value
I've been shopping for a frother for awhile, and looked at other comparables, nespresso, CBTL, handheld and starbucks; this one beats them all by value and price. It has three options, 1. hot froth (cappuccino) , 2. warm milk (for latte or hot choco), 3. cold froth (iced latte/capp); I was equally impressed with cold froth for cold iced beverages. So easy to use !! all the info you need is on the cap of the machine; tells you how many times you push the button for each setting; simple as that.
