This is an Exellent Cappuccino Foam Maker – Handheld Electronic Kitchen Mixer/Blender (2 x AA) Reviews

posted by renfro on 02/12/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Easy to use
Uses regular AA batteries (x2)
Awesome to make that cappuccino milk foam
Great for mixing drinks and kid's milk chocolate
Cons:
Cheaply built
Screws rust after a few weeks of use!
Eats up batteries like there was no tomorrow.
Other:
This is how I learned to use it (from a Austrian friend).
1. Take a bit of milk to the microwave for about a minute, making it really hot but not boiling.
2. Mix the milk with this device by starting at the very surface of the hot milk.
Use a deep container (like measuring jars) b/c the foam should end up 5 times the volume of the original milk.
Bottomline:
You'll impress your friends by serving real foamy cappuccino w/o the huge machine. The resulting foam lasts much longer than you'd expect!
Love mine, got 3 to give to family.
