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.
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.

I have had the unit for over a year and can say it never functioned as a frother. In the beginning it would make hot milk and that is about it. Read morePublished on December 3, 2010 by Doc Wittmer
