HIC’s Stainless Steel Milk Frother easily aerates milk and cream into a thick, rich foam for topping delectable hot and cold beverages. With a generous 14-ounce capacity, create frothed milk for several servings in seconds with very little effort. The lid features a built-in plunger with a double-mesh aerator, much like a French Press, and easy-grip handle on top. No electric required or batteries to replace. More economical than battery powered frothers and expensive espresso machines. Easily froth chilled or warmed milks, from whole milk, skim or goat milk, to hemp milk, almond milk, soy or cashew milk, and other non dairy milk. The milk frothing pitcher, also called a milk foamer, is so easy to use. Simply measure chilled or warmed milk into the frothing pitcher and place the plunger inside, making sure the lid is on securely. Pump the handle up and down, about 30-60 seconds, until foam has desired consistency. To serve, raise the plunger and hold back the milk froth with the lid. Pour the underlying un-frothed milk into beverages, then gently float the foam that remains on top of the beverage. A great addition to specialty coffee accessories, foam transforms fresh-brewed coffee into specialty coffee drinks, like cappuccino, a traditional cafe au latte or festive eggnog latte, caramel macchiato, mocha, Irish coffee or iced coffee. Elevate conventional hot chocolate to peppermint hot chocolate and white hot chocolate, and ordinary to extraordinary, with warm milk and honey or coconut milk chai tea latte, finish craft cocktails, like dulce de leche and mudslides, with panache, and more. Made from stainless steel, HIC’s Milk Frother is durable, versatile, easy to use, and top-rack dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.

I ordered the HIC Brands 14 ounce size really not knowing anything about the relative size of these units. When I got it I thought I had probably wasted my money. This was a simple stainless cup that held about 2 cups of liquid. The top included a plunger mechanism with a round screen held in place by a plastic fixture attached to the plunger. Anyway, with a fair degree of skepticism, I decided to give it a try. I heated about a half a cup of 2% milk in the microwave, pored it into the frother and then pumped away. I suppose I pumped it 30 times or so. Be aware that this is about 15 seconds of effort. Once I finished and took the top off I was totally surprised. I had practically created butter. It was actually too heavy to use for a Latte. I experimented a few times and discovered you only really needed to pump about 12 times to make reasonable froth. There is so little effort and time that I simply cannot imagine why anyone would want a powered unit.
My routine now is to pore about a 1/3 cup of milk in my coffee cup, heat it in the microwave for about 40 seconds, pore it into the frother, pump twelve times, pore it back into my coffee cup, and then put it under my espresso machine for a shot of espresso. I end up with about a half inch of milk in my cup, another layer of coffee and the rest of the cup is froth. I give it a quick swirl and then enjoy some of the best Latte's I've had. I know everyone is different on what they like in a Latte, however, for me, this technique makes the perfect Latte.
Just two other comments. Clean up is quick and simple. While my Jura is making the espresso, I rinse and clean the frother. It's really easy. Also, my frother is 14 oz. I think it's the smallest of the hand frothers. This size is perfect for say making say one or two coffee cup size latte's the way that I make them. The other bigger frothers would be too big for my purposes. I suppose if you are making a couple of 20 oz latte's or simply wanted to spoon in the froth for three or more drinks, you would want to consider one of the bigger units.
Produces very good microfoam, although there is a noticeable amount (about one part in twenty) of larger bubbles on the top. Perhaps an extreme coffee connoisseur might find this critical, but it is unlikely to be an issue for most users.
Have previously owned two of the Bodum 5-oz frothers (earlier model). They worked very well. But, unfortunately, the screen/frothing element on those was overly-complicated and had a plastic part which was prone to breaking due to normal usage.
In comparison, this Harold Import model is very sturdy and simple. The one plastic component is made of a type of plastic that is not so brittle and is unlikely to break from the plunging action. Of course the stainless steel (in comparison to glass) is not going to break is tipped over or dropped.
The relatively lower price reflects the simple construction -- it is not fancy, it is made to accomplish the task. As an example, the handle is attached to the pitcher with a three-point spot weld -- probably wouldn't notice it, unless looking closely, but it's only to make a secure attachment, not to be artistic.
This is not a product that is the result of "planned obsolescence," I expect to be using this little unit for many years.
Cleaning is a breeze! I always do a quick rinse after using and then do a quick soap water wash. It takes just a few minutes to clean and put away. I detest things that hard to clean, and this milk frother was very easy to clean.
This milk frother would make a great gift for a latte lover!
I love that it is completely stainless steel because that means it is travel-friendly! Just toss in you suitcase and no matter where you are in the world you can have a nice latte! I just gave one as a gift to my cousin. She is going to Ecuador for 9 months and was so excited to have one! Everyone is asking her to make a latte LOL!

Did You Find My Review Helpful? If so, I would appreciate it if you clicked yes.
June 27th, 2015: I am amending my review. Even though my original review states that I am disappointed and I was going to return the item, I decided to give it another try. Even with a few flaws, it works great, looks good, and I found that I can use it to make my bullet proof coffee! If you don't know what that is, check it out online...Dave Osprey.
