The Secura is still going strong, never had a single problem.
As it turns out, the easiest way to clean the layer of burnt milk at the bottom is by rinsing it with water first, then use a napkin / paper towel etc. and wipe the layer off, and now you are ready wash it, (Remember not to put it in the sink).
I decided to go with the 'Secura' because of the exceptional customer service, and the 2 year warranty, that really tells me about the quality of the product.
+ Machine quality.
5 stars. It's built very well with high quality material. The exterior is Stainless steel, and the interior is a kind of a non-stick finish = easy cleaning.
+ Froth quality.
Excellent froth and very fast operation. Hot and cold options. Hot temperature is perfect for me.
+ Easy of use.
Very straight forward and easy to use.
**And, of course, 'Very easy to clean' if you wash immediately after the cycle is done.**
The price (I paid almost 50 bucks) is good, and is actually better than the other options out there.
- You can't submerge it in water when you clean it.
- There's always a thin layer of burnt milk on the bottom after each use, (although it could be removed quite easily).
I'll update it in a few months on how it lasts.
This is a fantastic milk Frother! And believe me.. you're going to end up using it every day!..
I hope this helps..
Thanks for reading :)
I originally started with a couple of handheld battery operated frothers, one had a coil whisk and the other had a spinning wheel that was flat with pointed spars. Unfortunately, no matter how long I frothed the milk with these handheld battery frothers, the results were only slight milky fuzz that poured off the spoon. Neither one provided the thicker froth that sweetens the milk; therefore, the outcome was no different from adding regular milk to my choice of coffee. This was so discouraging that both these handheld frothers are now on a top shelf and out of the way, because I just don't use them.
Instead, I have the Secura Automatic Milk Frother and the difference is night and day. I love that this milk frother is completely automatic and I do not have to monitor the heating or the frothing. I check to see the correct whisk is at the bottom, pour in the milk, cover the frother, and push the button. By the time, my coffee beverage is ready, the thick and sweet frothing, is also ready too.
The Secura milk frother stands about 8” tall, which includes a separate, corded and unattached base that is the heating unit. The frother (pitcher) unit does not have a cord as it detaches from its heating base, and I am able to bring this frother directly to table, without a cord to get in the way. In addition, since the frother part is cordless, it’s convenient wash and rinse the frother in the sink.
Within the frother are three designated lines showing maximum and minimum filling to prevent any overflowing. The top maximum line is for heating milk. The lower maximum line is for frothing because frothing causes milk to expand to approximately twice the amount. Right below the maximum frothing line is another to specify the minimum amount to use. I have difficulty seeing this last mark, but since I know that’s it is a smidgen lower, than the maximum, I haven’t had a problem estimating the amount.
This frother has one function button, with two LED light indicators. The first press operates both heat and frothing, and a small ‘blue’ and another ‘red’ bar below, lights up during this process. For a ‘cold’ milk froth without heat, I hold the function button for a couple of seconds, and just the ‘blue’ LED bar lights up, designating my choice to froth without any heat.
The Secura frother comes with two interchangeable whisks, the spiral whisk is for frothing, and the other whisk without the coil is for heating milk without any froth. I choose which whisk I need and fit into the bottom of the frother, and the other stores conveniently on the inside of the frother acrylic lid.
Below are my results:
2% milk – FROTHING WITH HEAT - frothing in conjunction with the heating selection creates mounds of sweet dense froth with the consistency of whipped cream, and thick enough to scoop out with a spoon.
2% milk – FROTHING COLD MILK - aerates the milk into large milky bubbles, and a little denser than regular milk, but it certainly is not thick and pours like normal milk.
Using the coffee lightener Half-&-Half, I received the same results. Although the cold froth Half & Half frothed thicker than the milk, with the addition of some heat, the Half-&-Half froth was denser and thickens into thick and sweet creamy foam.
In conclusion, I receive a thicker froth with the addition of the heating element, and this creates a sweet and whipped cream consistency that requires spooning.
The smaller whisk works to swirl the milk while it’s heating, it delivers airy bubbles but without the froth, and is useful for a hot chocolate beverage.
I appreciate a few design features in the Secura frother.
The flat acrylic lid is transparent with a silicone ring that fits tightly on the top, and I have not experienced any leaking or overflowing when the frother is in use. Furthermore, the see-through acrylic lid enables me to view the frothing process.
This flat acrylic cover has a place to fit the extra whisk for storage, and both the smaller whisk and the larger coiled one both fit into the grooves of the lid. In addition, if either whisk is missing or lost, they are a standard universal size, and are available on Amazon.com or other places on the internet.
The Secura milk frother is compact and quiet, and the exterior remains cool to the touch. Although the frother powers with electricity, the frother removes from the heating base, this provides portability for placement on a table and without an attached cord that would get in my way. Furthermore, this also allows me to rinse it out in the sink and the non-stick interior washes out with ease. In addition, a cleaning brush is included with the frother and this reaches down to clean the bottom. I have not experienced any milk scorching with this frother, and the non-stick interior rinses out with ease. However, I only make as much as needed and rinse the milk frother immediately after use.
I love that the Secura frother automatically senses when the frothing and/or heating finishes, and then automatically powers off. This safety feature is reassuring in the case of a sudden distraction, such as a ringing phone or an unexpected knock at the door.
In conclusion, my coffee maker along with the Secura Milk frother are my favorite kitchen appliances, and the ones I use most often on a frequent daily basis.
The good: The Secura is very similar to the Aeroccino in terms of functionality. There's a little wand (which is littler than the Aeroccino's) that creates about the same amount of foam as the Aeroccino. The whisk also generates a similar density of foam. As other reviews have mentioned, they do not attach by magnet like the Aeroccino but the only real difference that I found this makes is when you forget to put the attachment on before you pour the milk because the magnet draws the attachment. However if you're not prone to forgetting this step, it doesn't make much of a difference. They both heat fridge-cold milk to about 145F.
The bad: After the milk is heated in the Secura, there is a layer of milk skin on the bottom. The unit does come with a little cleaning brush, but the way it is right-angled, it doesn't really help in brushing the bottom - better for brushing the inside side walls...which don't really need brushing. I thought that it formed that skin because it heated the milk hotter than the Aeroccino, but as mentioned above, they actually heat to the same temperature.
The potentially ugly: The bottom of the Secura jug has a metallic contact exposed, whereas the Aeroccino only has a pin exposed. Though not submerging in water at all, I can see this as a potential problem if you get the bottom wet at all (e.g. putting it down on a wet counter or something). Or accidentally getting a sprinkle of water on it and not drying completely before using again. My Breville cordless hot water kettle is built similar to the Aeroccino where there is only one pin exposed.
If the cleaning and milk skin problem, or exposed contacts issues are not a concern for you, it actually is functionally decent. And having the longer warranty is nice. I'll probably just hold out for a discounted Aeroccino.
