Are you like me who prefer your coffee all good and velvety? Does the mouthfeel it gives make your morning a whole lot better? If you are, you better stay with me as I dive into the Nespresso Aeroccino Plus milk frother.

The first good thing that I’ve noted is that it’s made up of a non-sticky material, therefore, it saves me time since it’s quick and easy to clean and use. With this device, you can both heat and froth your milk of choice in either cold and hot conditions. This is also a winner if you do not enjoy excessively noisy machines as this frother does its job quietly, eradicating the hassle of waking anybody up in your household.

The interior of the Aeroccino Plus is made of Teflon making it a durable appliance to add in your kitchen. Given that you familiarize yourself with how to operate this properly, this is safe to use. To add to this, it also has different modes that offers you control over how exactly you want your coffee to be.

Five major features

  1. Ease of use

You do not need to be an expert or a barista to enjoy this frother. It’s indeed easy to operate and is compact so it is easily stored. It is actually so small that its carafe only has a 2-cup capacity.

This one is small but terrible. It can actually heat up your milk in a quick span of seconds. Amazing, isn’t it? Perfect for those who do not have the luxury of time but still want some fancy cup of coffee. Once you’ve reached the consistency you want, simply scoop the foamed milk out with a plastic spatula.

A push of a button is all it takes to have this device running. Take note also that although this is dishwasher-safe, make sure that the motor unit and the button do not come in contact with water.

  1. Ability to froth in hot and cold

I know I’ve said it already, but I just have to say it again: the Aeroccino can froth your milk in both hot and cold conditions. This is a feature other frothers lack. Also, it can steam your milk up to 145 F.

Another mind-blowing feature of the Aeroccino is that it has the capability to turn a whole pitcher’s worth of milk into that desirable creamy micro-foams. It does so with the help of the spring-like and petal-like whisks.

If you want some latte, the spring-like whisk is the way to go, but if you plan on brewing up some cappuccino, then go for the other option. Both of these devices may be used for cold or hot frothing.

  1. Design

We have already established that the interior of this machine is made of Teflon. The manufacturers utilized magnetic technology in producing the Aeroccino. Both of the whisks can be conveniently attached to the respective unit with a quick snap by the magnetic know below. Only one whisk can be used at that time, so the other unused whisk also has a dedicated magnetic spot where it can be stored. 

Moreover, the spout’s design aids in easy transfer of liquids. It is not messy and is almost spill-free  as compared to others of its own kind. 

The overall dimension of the device is 4.1 x 4.1 x 6.7 inches with a concomitant weight of 4 pounds. Put this into consideration when deciding how much milk should go in the pitcher. 

  1. Performance

Basically, it works by having the attached whisk spin causing a centripetal effect on the surface tension of the milk. In more technical terms, it vortexes the liquid surface. This is convenient to use because it’s electrically-powered at 120V.

Although I said that transferring the liquid from the pitcher to other containers can be done spill-free, this may not be the case when the frothing is ongoing. There may be some spillages here and there during the process. However, to minimize this, there are markings in the carafe that dictates up to how much milk you should put in to ensure a less tedious experience. 

  • Upper marking (250 mL): maximum limit for whipping the milk in hot mode
  • Lower marking (130 mL): maximum limit for whipping the milk in cold mode
  1. Consumer-friendly

Especially among the population who never really read the user manual, users actually complain of the consistent spurts and spills that deposit on the button. Of course, this may lead to some damages in the unit.

The good thing, however, is that the company’s pretty easy to deal with. If they find your complaint reasonable, you might just be lucky to have your old and broken unit be replaced. They are consumer-friendly and reliable this way.
