This little gadget is so easy to use and just so light you can take it anyway. I got given one and just threw it in my draw thinking I would never use it, until one day my daughter wanted a milkshake thats when i got into a panic i had nothing to make this milkshake with, then i remember this little gadget i threw into the draw, i hunted it out and gave it a whirl and what do you know it made a great milkshake.
So I gave it a go for other things like beating eggs, that was great a easy tool over and done with nice and quick, cream and more. There is so much you can use it for, i even had to give it a go in my milo and man the best milo I have had so creamy and yummy. The clean up is really easy i just turn hot water on and and rinse it out turning it on...or get a cup of boiling water a little soap and blast it though the cup no need to wash the handle just the whisk part. This little gem can go camping with you as its so light and small.
I found the milk frother great for making milkshakes. I also came up with a unique idea of using it - I found it's awesome for mixing my daughters formula. I'd definately recommend it to mums. Great for milkshakes, hot drinks, formula, making Ice blocks - the possibilities are endless. I would definately recommend it to anyone it's so versitile. You could even take it camping, in the car or your hand bag. Great price. Great product.
Whilst this milk frother does just what is says it does for frothing milk, I would be hard pressed to recommend its use to whisk eggs, cream or for other options where a good balloon whisk will do the job in about 3 mins rather than well over five minutes with this, unless perhaps one has a physical condition the prevents the good wrist action needed for a balloon whisk.
Being able to froth up milk for She Who Must Be Obyed's coffee is now a very quick task, something I've never bothered to do before mostly because breaking out a whisk to froth milk for coffee is next to pointless. Having the milk frother is damned helpful and now it is demanded.
Warm the milk, plunge in the frother and press the button until you have the required frothiness. Then take the wand out from the handle and give it a good wash. This alone makes it very easy to clean and a good reason why you should buy this frother over other inferior and cheaper gadgets and very useful to keep around the house for those guests you want to impress with your barista skills.
I love this gadget! I was a bit hesitant about trying this as i thought, "how much better could it actually make my coffee?!" But i was actually very surprised! It makes my coffee soo much creamier it's great!
I've tried frothing the milk with everything in the cup, milk coffee sugar and water; however it didn't really give me the right satisfaction. Now instead, i put the milk, coffee and sugar in and froth that first (there's no more need to stir with a teaspoon as the frother mixes it well enough) and then i add the hot water last. Perfection!
Now i've used the frother, i'll never go back to non-frothed coffee! And it actually makes you think it's cafe style too!
When I first saw this I thought great an all-in-one solution for frothing milk, plus all those extra's like cream, milk shakes etc.... well kind of.
Installing the batteries is a simple as all the other One Touch range, a bit of manual pressure to pop open the battery compartment, install the battery, close the lid and insert the mixer extension.
The fact the the mixer extension can just pop out is a great feature and makes for super easy cleaning
While this unit does an excellent job of frothing milk, and any other liquids of a similar ilk, when it comes to whipping cream it is a slightly different story. Whilst I have no doubt that it could indeed whip cream, I just feel that the time factor involved in such a process may be a bit off putting. We tried it with a 500ml bottle of regular store brought cream and proceeded to whip it with the unit. After around 10 minutes, while the cream did have a slightly thicker look to it, it still seemed to be a while away from thickening up to what I would call whipped cream. I feel the same could also be said for a regular Kiwi milkshake (Milk, ice-cream and flavouring).
When it comes to eggs and cocktails, this would be great, and for things like jelly or instant pudding type mixtures this would also most likely do the job nicely.
So it's great as a milk frother, good for eggs and some cocktails and dessert toppings. But for cream and milkshakes, it will do the job, but may take longer than you want.
