Too weak for the money,
This review is from: aerolatte Milk Frother with Stand, Stainless Steel (Kitchen & Home)
I bought the aerolatte with stand because of the positive reviews as I was looking for something a bit more powerful than your average Aldi/Lidl gadget. Ok it looks nicer but then it cost 4-5 times as much. It was stated that it had a stronger motor, but it is not more powerful than cheaper models and can only turn smallest amounts into a nice froth. The manual states something of up to 150ml as possible but no way, you can swirl it for a minute and it will not do it as the speed will decrease substantially as soon as you dip it in. I wrote to aerolatte as I thought I might have got a faulty one, but they did not care to answer. And no, the reason was not old/weak batteries, I tried 3 different sets fresh from the blister and checked charge beforehand.
So: I would never buy it again.

Was your milk fresh? There is a protein in the milk that makes it froth. This protein dies (or whatever happens to proteins) well before the milk goes off. It still tastes fresh but won't froth. I have tried many diffferent types but I like this model of Aerolatte best as the shaft is stiffer and it is less likely to bend off centre. Once the shafts bend off centre, the speed goes down dramatically and the thing is pretty useless. It doesn't seem possible to bend back straight again.
