Helps you make consistent cafe quality drinks
on 8 March 2017
I have bought two of these, the first was for me about two years ago and the second was for my Dad when he got a coffee machine just before Christmas.
My Dad is happy with his and mine is used almost daily. It still works as well as when I first bought it. Considering it's so cheap, I think that's remarkable!
Allows consistent results for milk steaming - perfect temperature lattes, cappuccinos, flat whites, hot chocolate etc every time (you still need to make sure you have a good technique for steaming your milk to the right consistency for the right type of drink, but at least you don't have to worry about getting the temperature right or about burning the milk!)
My only niggle is it does tend to collect milk residue around it's clip and that's not the easiest to clean. I'm not knocking a star off for that though, you get what you pay for and I'm surprised I haven't had to replace it yet! One day if I'm feeling flush, I might invest in one of the jugs with a temperature indicator on the side but for now I'm happy with this :-)
I'm quite passionate about my coffee addiction, if you're the same you might find this list helpful / interesting :-) http://amzn.eu/gyvvWu4
