It's great whilst it lasts!
24 November 2017
An amazing frother - admittedly the first one I've tried - but as I am just getting into coffee that can be expected. As some other reviewers have mentioned, you don't need to put as much milk in as it suggests (I kept having to use huge mugs to keep all the froth inside).
So why am I giving this only 3 stars, I hear you ask? Well it was amazing, until the bottom fell off.
I've been washing this by hand and have been using it pretty much everyday. I got this maybe 3 weeks ago. Yesterday I was warming up the milk in the jar, as usual and I heard a crack. When I poured the milk into my coffee, I noticed a large crack pretty much circling the entire of the bottom of the jar had appeared.
Well, I knew that wasn't going to end well, but I thought perhaps it was superficial.
This morning I got a message from my flat mate letting me know that when they picked it up and poured some water in, the bottom fell off. It took them a while to realise what had happened as of course, this isn't something you'd expect.
So, I can only think that either I was heating it on too high a temperature - but I mean it's supposed to be glass? Or, perhaps some water after washing was still on the bottom and causing some damage when the pot was heating up.
The glass didn't seem thin to me, so I'm uncertain as to why this has happened.
So final verdict - it's great, whilst it lasts. I would buy it again (although luckily my other flatmate has a coffee press, so we're just going to use my lid on that) but don't expect it to last long.
