How much I enjoy 5/5
The Aerocinno Plus Nespresso Frother is a great frother for heating and frothing milk or simply frothing without heat for espresso based and other drinks. The Aerocinno Plus makes a great companion to the Nespresso single serve espresso machines available from Nespresso.
The Aerocinno Plus is a handy milk frother that works well and is easy to clean that has two discs for both frothing and for stirring milk. The Nespresso Frother uses a base with the electric cord attached and a connector for the removable pitcher that plugs into the base.
The pitcher has the bottom connections for plugging into the base and the inside of the pitcher has the level indicators for milk and the post for the discs. The discs sit on top of the post and are held in place by magnets on the motor top that also spin the discs.
The Aerocinno Plus uses a magnet system to suspend the frothing and heating discs above the top shaft of the motor inside the pitcher so the discs actually do not touch the pitcher at all. The discs spin without making contact and so no need for bearings or other components that would wear out internally for a longer lifespan of the frother.
The inside of the pitcher is nonstick to make cleanup easier with the motor parts inside the pitcher under the seamless interior of the pitcher. The pitcher does have the motor and heating element inside so dishwashing is out but a simple rinse and occasional wash in the sink with soapy water works well.
While you can get the bottom of the pitcher wet I would avoid keeping it underwater and simply wash then rinse the pitcher without leaving it soaking. I have been using a foam brush to wash out my Aerocinno Plus after use for making my lattes and cappuccinos.
The Aerocinno Plus Nespresso Frother is an easy to use frother and with the easy to remove froth and stirring discs its easy to make espresso based drinks. The pitcher simply sets on the base and is easy to remove for quick pouring and cleanup as well as filling at the fridge.
You can use the simple front button to make heated milk with the stirring disc or you can press the button for a few seconds and wait for it to turn blue to just froth the milk without heating it. The red or blue indicator around the front button is easy to use to get the frothed and heated or simply frothed milk for your drinks.
You can use the frothed milk for espresso based drinks and other drinks like smoothies and hot chocolate but steamers are a favorite that has become popular in coffee shops. Steamers are simply steamed milk with flavored syrup like Torani’s for a different hot drink without the caffeine fix for something just a bit different.
The Aerocinno Plus works extremely well and only takes about a minute to heat and froth or simply froth without heating so it works very quickly. I highly recommend the Aerocinno Plus frother for a fantastic frother available as a set with many recent Nespresso machines or by itself.
