Positive Product Points

Great invention!  You can even put chocolate milk into the milk tank and create automatic frothy hot chocolate.  Easy to clean.

Negative Product Points

A little tricky to figure out at first.  Cold frothed milk could result if you don't do it right.

Detailed Commentary

It is great fun and creates perfect frothy milk for cappucinos, steamed milk, hot chocolate, etc.  It will be great for parties because creating steamed milk for cappucinos can be time consuming, messy, noisy and error prone.  With this little thing it's going to be a snap.  The milk chamber is huge and makes tons of froth.

So basically you load milk and water and then wait less than a minute and then you hold down this button and it shoots frothy milk into your mug.

We had a little trouble getting it work at first because we didn't have all the little pieces of tubing completely pushed together and apparently there's a safety shut-off that was triggered.  

Also, there's this little adjustment valve which controls the speed of the flow.  What they don't tell you right up front (they mention this later in the guide) is that if you have it turned all the way up then the milk comes out only warm. You have to crank it back a little and then the milk comes out steaming hot.  

Cleans up easily. All the milky parts come right off.

Buying Experience

I found this in the back of Marshalls for $16.95!  That's right! $16.95!  It must have been a mistake or something.  It was unopened and completely shiny new.  Not the first incredible coffee related find I've found there either.
