    I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. This is a very good frother, just not perfect. 1. Makes good froth easily with 2% milk and half/half, i have not used anything else. 2.easy to clean. The little disks(there are 2 included) are magnetized and in plastic. I wish these were stainless parts. Everything about this unit that touches the liquid is stainless except for these. Yuck. However, compared to other units out there, this has the least amount of non stainless steel that touches liquid. 3.so far, probably due to induction heating , I have not experienced any scorching of dairy product and cleaning is very easy. 4. I like that there is no steam used to dilute the dairy product. 5. Makes pretty good froth. I usually use the recommended heated froth setting and it turns off automatically when it's done. But still, sometimes there is still more liquid. In this case I put the dial to cold froth and let it froth more. I do this because once the liquid reaches a set temperature with the setting, the frothet will not let it spin at the same setting.

    I am not a coffee drinker, my poison is Chai Lattes. This milk frother does such an outstanding job that I no longer need to go to the local coffee house to get my fix. The milk comes out hot, thick and creamy. It gets used about 4 mornings a week and has never failed me in the two months I have owned it. Clean up is simple, the stainless steel cup is easy to rinse out in between and fits perfectly in the dishwasher rack. Overall, does an excellent job. I was concerned about spending a bit more on something that gets used only by me in my household, but after a few months, it will have paid for itself in what I would have paid to the retailers.

    I first bought a Epica and it was a great "starter" machine BUT this is so very much easier and totally worth the extra money. I did have $30 in rewards and I price matched it down $20 so it felt like an especially great deal. Regardless, it is a solid piece of kitchen equipment. Very strait forward, I love the milk temperature adjustability and that it can go in the dishwasher (which is rarely needed because if you rinse it immediately it never has stuck milk) unlike the first machine I got. I think it is the best, of this class, milk frothers on the market. Plus it looks really sharp beside my Bonavita kettle and Capresso Burr grinder.

    I purchased this item to replace an Aerochino 4 milk frother. I had my doubts about the Breville but after a few tries I was able to produce incredible fluffy foamed milk. I tried whole, 2% and 1% milk and they all worked quite well. Because of the induction heating system the milk never burns! The only downside is the design/look. The ease of use and fluffy foam easily makes up for that. Breville products are well built and last a long time. Definitely worth the price.

    We got this frother from Best Buy, they priced match which was great. The frother works excellent, my husband and I are using it constantly along with our French press. We did not want to purchase a whole new giant piece of equipment to get frothed milk. We love the coffee results of our french press. Now with this frother we have the best compliment to our coffee, steamed milk and froth! It makes cappuccinos, lattes and hot chocolates. Excellent little price of kitchen equipment.

    I've bought several milk frothers the last few years. They always end up burning out and not lasting. This one is by far the best one I've tried. I love the temperature control feature. It allows me to have hot milk that won't cool down my coffee. I like the lid that allows me to add a cocoa packet or pumps of vanilla syrup. It incorporates the toppings very nicely. I bought the geek squad protection for $20 so I know I'll have delicious frothy milk for years to come.

    My husband and I returned from a trip to Portugal and dearly missed warm milk with our coffee. After doing a lot of online research I took a chance with this item (it is a bit costly). We couldn't be more pleased! Easy to use, quick, little noise - doesn't bother us at all. Sturdy and non-plastic were requirements for us and this fits the bill nicely.

    Amazing frother! Bought it as a gift and she says it makes perfect froth for her morning coffee! However she also tells me even if you put the minimum amount of milk it makes a little but too much for her cup of coffee.

    I was a little skeptical but after the first use I love this. It is a little loud, I thought it would be close to silent, but it is not. Kind of like the cappuccino Breville is pretty loud too, but very nice. Hot to cold temps for frothing. Very creamy foamed froth with whole milk and foamy froth with other like Lactaid but still perfect.

    My daughter uses this everyday for her coffee. It whips the milk to a perfect froth. I've been so impressed that I've started using it for my own coffee. What I really like is how easy it is to clean up. Everything goes in the dishwasher and cleans up well. It also looks nice at our coffee station.

    I had a nespresso frother and this is way better. I love how the mug is separate from the machine. You can froth or heat more milk. Easy to maintain. Wish bought sooner even if it is a little pricier. Well worth it.

    I've been looking for a hot chocolate maker and ended up going for this Breville Milk Cafe after reading lots of reviews. I love everything about it. It's elegant and it produces great cafe-like hot chocolates. Easy to use and clean. Endless options especially for those who drink coffee and tea. Got a price match for $20 less.

    Frothing quality is good for 2% milk and great for whole milk. I like that it is stainless steel with minimal plastic parts. Coffee tastes a lot better. Visiting parents loved it as well.

    My daughter and I love this simple to use milk frother. It is basically pour in the milk and turn it on. With 2 inserts for either latte or cappuccino we get to chose how frothy to make it.

    No worries about boil over. Just fill to the indicated line weather for milk or hot chocolate, hit the start botton and in a few minutes it’s done.

    Very reliable milk froth, you can make flavored or just plain for your cappuccino. We've had such fun with it. Works best with 2% or more milk fat milks. Enjoy!!

    Works best when you froth 8 oz or more...definitely rinse right after using and it'll clean up really easily. I don't need to spend money out on coffee anymore!

    I so glad I splurged for this. I have another brand but the milk only get warm. I like the option to control the temperature of the milk. Easy to use, milk foams very well.
