Now and then you will see me go on a bit of a rant about quality of service and products, both can really get me going. Over weekends, starting the days with a yummy cappuccino is our regular indulgence. Last year we went through 3 hand held milk frothers. The first 2 were the same Salter frother which comes with a “lifetime” guarantee, but there’s a limit to how many times you will want to exchange junk for more junk. We then got a “Stickocinno”, which was very unstable from the start and lasted all of 4 months before the switch stopped working.
This time I ordered the Aerolatte from Yuppiechef. Cliff had done some research and found that they were the first to make hand held frothers. I was super impressed with Yuppiechef and their price included free delivery to my door. The Aerolatte is by far the best of the 3 brands that we have owned. It feels more solid, is extremely stable, froths milk in no time at all and comes in a nice plastic container. I will update this post in about 6 months time but at this point I feel certain that this one should stand the test of time.
Update 6/5/14 – For a horrible moment I thought that the switch on the Aerolatte was broken as it would not turn on recently, however it turned out that the stick was just stuck, after a light twiddle it worked again
Update 24/1/15 – A year down the line the Aerolatte is still working brilliantly and is used every weekend
Update – 11/9/15 – The Aerolatte is still in regular use and fine fettle
Update – 23/11/15 – My domestic worker managed to bend the stick so badly that the Aerolatte can no longer be used, were it not mistreated it would still be going strong. I have a replacement of the same brand on order from Yuppiechef and look forward to it’s arrival
