Aeroccino 3 (Milk frother) NESSPRESSO (Black) by Aeroccino 3

First of all let me say that I love love love my Nespresso machine and my Aeroccino. Great-tasting coffee quickly and easily. Having hot, frothy milk is a luxury and the fact that this one uses fresh milk makes it so much nicer than some other brands that use dried milk in pods.
However....
It is really difficult to clean. The interior has a coating that looks like non-stick, so one would imagine a little hot soapy water would do the trick. Not so. I got my Aeroccino in November and it now has two patches of burnt-on milk that will not shift no matter what.

2.0 out of 5 stars Let's see...., 8 Jan 2013
These look amazing in the photographs. I ordered my usual size 5 using the size converter provided. As they were being shipped from Germany I knew they would take a while to arrive.

Dark Matter by Michelle Paver
Atmospheric and chilling, this novel managed to take me back to my childhood fears of a malevolent anonymous threat intent on doing me harm. To be fair, I am new to the "Ghost Story" genre, so it doesn't take much to unnerve me, but this book had it in spades. The isolation; constant darkness; dogs whimpering and the sort of windows that faces look in at (to coin a phrase from Withnail & I). It summed up my own night terrors of an unseen monster - the kind of fears that kept me frozen to my bed, too afraid to turn on a light in case I saw what I was already convinced was there waiting for me.
Really very good.
