Hey everyone,


Does anyone have any positive experiences with this milk frothing device?

For me, it's proven to be *OK* for cappuccinos (though it doesn't froth the milk quite dry enough for my liking), but for lattes and even considering latte art, it's proven to be pretty useless.

In fact, I haven't managed to froth the milk to that fine consistency of microfoam with it to date. I can either heat milk up, or froth it so it's thick.

Has anyone managed to do latte art with this little thing?


Ciao,

Reuben

It looks like a Mechanical frother.  Not steam like on a machine. I have never seen a Mechanical frother do latte art type foam.  There are very little bubbles spread thin through out the milk for latte art.  That is hard to do with a whisk of any kind and I would guess almost impossible.
