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.
I clean my carafes in the dishwasher, and they go in the microwave (mine is 1200 watts) to heat the milk (I use high for 1min 10 sec). I can still hold the carafe in my hand, maybe other people are heating the milk to a much higher temp (I read one complaint that the glass gets too hot - if so use a hot pad) Yes, the glass will break, and there are no replacement glasses available. I use my frother every day, I would say on average they last at least two or three years until I do something stupid like knock them over in the sink or accidentally hit them against the sink. If you break your carafe, consider buying the Norpro (at $11.50) as a replacement for your Bodum.
I also always save my old plunger mechanisms, so if I don't like the new ones I can always revert back to the old (which were mostly metal) nd thre have been several styles over the past 12 years..Read more ›

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 20 months ago by Steve B
