Summary: We've had this frother for about a month and it works like a charm. (Actually, I didn't know that charms worked at all). We've been having lattes in our household for over 20 years and this machine does a great job.
Great little machine IF you follow the instructions

Summary: I purchased this machine because the steamer wand on my Rancilio Silvia is nasty to clean and doesn't do a terribly good job of steaming milk unless you know exactly how to use it. After multiple failed attempts to show my beloved how to do it, I gave up and ordered the Breville.
Summary: I'm usually a huge fan of Breville products and thus the reason I purchased this milk frother. However, Breville needs to make some needed improvements in this one because it doesn't last! It stops working way too soon for a product that costs as much as this does..
Great milk warmer and frother - very reliable if you follow a simple step

Summary: There is a simple trick to making this unit work reliably every time - simply swish a little hot water in it before pouring in very cold milk. We use it to make hot frothy milk for coffee - puts that coffee you get from the overpriced corner coffee franchise to shame.
Summary: I had looked at this milk frother for a long time but just bought it this week hoping I could make my favourite chai tea lattes (with soy milk) at home. I happy to say that this frother does the job well ...
Summary: I had a cheap milk frother for a few years and decided it was time for an upgrade. I did a bit of research and decided to order the Breville and I couldn't be happier. With my old frother I had to zap the milk in the microwave to make sure it was hot enough.
Summary: The magnetic frother is very very touch and go. I have to oil it, and help it start spinning manually and can only add the milk once it is spinning at full speed. even then if I add too much milk it will stop.
