Bodum 'Latteo' milk frother
Bought this item to go with my bialeti coffee maker. These products together are far easier to use than my old cappuccino machine. The glass does feel a little thin but it works well for me. I haven't put it in the dishwasher but it scrubs up well by hand. Nice product, a bit pricey but it does the job very effectively, especially if you warm the milk in the microwave first.
so easy to use.
Great for making lattes at home especially with a dash of syrup in them and the children just love a frothy hot chocolate made with the Bodum Latteo. Ideal for a gift that's different and very useful.
Despite the flimsy appearence of this item I have used one for many years and have only just had to replace it after my cat decided to knock it off the worktop onto the slate floor.
This makes the best froth with a minimum of effort.
We have had a lot of fun
All the family have enjoyed having frothy milk for coffees and hot chocolates. It is easy to operate and quick. Definitely recommend for a fun addition to breakfast, brunch and bedtime.
Excellent milk frother
I bought this Bodum milk frother as the steam frother on the espresso/cappucino machine I purchased last year broke and would be too much hassle to get fixed. The Bodum frother is fantastic, it's easy to use and makes really good froth (much better than the froth my coffee maker made). Highly recommended!
Does what its says
I bought this to go with my new coffee machine. Does what it says really well. The only issue i have with the product is that the glass seems very thin and very fragile. Apart from that it provides very good frothy milk to make my cappuccinos and lattes!
just waiting to break
fragile piece of expensive glass
We have a Nespresso Coffee Maker complete with the milk heater/frother. Whilst this can make good froth, the milk burns on to the supposed non-stick surface. Also, the milk rarely get warm enough. The Nespresso reps we have spoken to in shops when demonstarting say this is a known problem. Great!
Having read other excellent reviews on the Bodum Latteo, we have taken the plunge. All I can say is WOW. The very meagre amount of skimmed milk used froths with very little effort. You can then heat in the microwave to whatever temperature you require. There is then enough "stiff" froth for two good sized drinks. And cleaning is easier and simpler than the Nespresso piece of kit that costs Â£Â£Â£Â£.
The Nespresso coffee is good and that par5t of the machine works fine. So, if you are thinking of buying just go for a Nespresso or similar coffee machine without a frother and get the Bodum Latteo for all your froth needs. Or you can just use the good old cafetiere.
And, of course, you can also use the froth cold if you want milkshakes.
