The item arrived very quickly and packed well for transit. In the past I have physically shaken a milk bottle to make a small amount of foam on top of a coffee when I have guests - but with this little gadget that strenuous activity is now a thing of the past .
Firstly i was very impressed with just how easy it is to use. The instructions were very simple to follow and within minutes I was left with a very warm and dense foam . For my first experiment I poured whole milk to the maximum line ( please note that it is essential that you should only use full and whole milk ) pressed the relevant setting out of the four that would provide me with the thicker foam rather than the airy and once the process was complete I poured it into a mug and added a teaspoon of coffee granules and boiling water appropriately . The coffee was amazing and was such a treat. It basically reminded me of a coffee that you would purchase at a coffee shop. It was thick and luxurious.
I adore the fact that you can also make a cold foam and am eager to try this out to create a foam topper for a milkshake. I am also tempted to try a flavoured whole milk in the machine to see how this would work out ( although this hasnt been stipulated as possible - I cant foresee any difference than using a plain) At first I saw this item having a limited use but it's amazing really how much I have used it in the last few days.
Although the item offers a great wattage for a small kitchen gadget of this type it also has a very quiet operation - pretty much silent ..my kettle is louder. It is also relatively easy to clean which is a big bonus. I recommend that once used before you sit to enjoy your drink - give the canister a quick rinse under warm water once it has been safely removed from the electrical base. This will ensure that the milk doesnt dry up at the bottom making it a harder task .
Overall the item is stylish and innovative whilst being compact enough to not take much kitchen counter space . This would also make an unusual gift for coffee and hot chocolate lovers . Only downpoint is I wish it was a bit bigger to accommodate a whole family in one sitting. Other than that I cannot fault it
