Bottom Line: Good choice for larger milk quantities but not my favorite pitcher.
Positive Product Points

Standard stainless steel straight-walled frothing pitcher. Good for doing larger quanities of milk.

Negative Product Points

It's a bit deep for the wand on many home machines. I have to tip my Gaggia Baby or else tilt the pitcher to get wand into it.

Detailed Commentary

This was the first pitcher I acquired after graduating to a better quality espresso machine (I graduated to a Gaggia Baby Millenium from a Delonghi $80 pump machine). It's made of nice heavy 18-10 steel and is identical in style to the pitchers used in most commercial coffee joints but appears to be a bit smaller at 32 oz capacity. I use this when doing milk for two doubles but the Kinox is still a better pitcher for my typical use (see other product review).  It seems to alllow frothing very quickly but the depth requires tilting the espresso maker or tilting the pitcher (and thus spilling some milk) when removing it after frothing.

Buying Experience

Walked in - bought it - walked out.
