Summary: My machine has the frother sitting quite low, and I am not going to put it on a stand. I originally bought a different frothing pitcher but I had to angle it so far that the milk and foam would pour out. I looked at the 20 oz version of Krups at BedBath but it was also too tall. The 12 oz is the perfect height for my Saeco Aroma w/o a stand. It's actually too small for two latte's but it can work ok for two capps. So glad I found it though because it's so much cleaner!
Summary: This cup is pretty to look at, but it actually cut my hand when I was washing it for the first time. It's drawn stainless steel, and although the main body of the cup appears to be a decent thickness, the rim is pulled too thin and finished with too sharp of an edge. It actually creates a knife edge that is very capable of cutting things. This product is made in China.
Summary: It's a nice looking pitcher, but I recommend you order the 20-oz. size instead. I thought this would work for me because I only make a single latte at a time, but this pitcher isn't really big enough for a decent sized latte. Might work fine for single-shot beverages, but for me, I need the next size up.
Functional design. Perfect size for a single cappuccino.

Summary: The tapered shape and flared handle make this pitcher easy to maneuver under any size frothing arm. I also own an RSVP brand frothing pitcher which is much prettier than the Krups, but I personally find the Krups handle more comfortable to use. I'm not dissing RSVP here; they make a great little pitcher too. I'm just saying that as the owner of both brands, I'd have to give a slight nod to Krups for the comfort of their flared handle.
