AEG DolceCrema Milk Frother - £19.95 (collect) or £22.95 (delivered) at John Lewis

Found 22nd Jun 2013
Looks a good alternative to the Aerocinno for all you coffee pod machine owners out there - Nespresso for example.
Usually up at £49.95 - and more elsewhere, not that I recognise any of the retailers that came up on Google shopping search for alternates.
2 Year warranty included and John Lewis great service included too

For perfectly frothed milk, The AEG milk frother is capable of creating perfectly frothed and heated milk at the touch of a button.

It’s great for making milky lattes, foamy cappuccinos, luxurious hot chocolates or simply livening up an instant coffee. The removable whisk, easy and safe cleaning make for smooth functionality.

Complete with automatic switch off and waterproof jug. This milk frother can be placed on its base at any rotary angle or taken straight to the table where it will keep milk warm.

Same as I thought, was going to get an Aerocinno but at this price it's worth a punt on another unit.

Did anyone pick one up? How is it?

Just got mine today, was bought as a gift but did see it tested once. was very impressed with the results.
Takes 90 seconds then auto shut off. nice and hot and gave a nice froth. at £20 I dont think you will do any better. Most alternatives I have seen are twice the price.

Noticed that JL have taken it off their website, maybe a refund or replacement with similar item - have you tried contacting them?
I am using mine daily at least twice a day and it's working like a charm

it was the best

ive had the nespresso and a kenwood

I cant understand why
first it stopped spinning that was fine i still got warm milk

now only a red flashing light weird..Like I said a replacemet is preferrered to a refund I havent given up faith

I got one of these from John Lewis and was mightily disappointed. Firstly it came with a two-pin plug, which meant plugging it into my shaver socket in the bathroom to get it working. Then it only froths for around 15 seconds before cutting out. It will be going straight back to the shop.

We used to have a tall glass jar and a handheld manual frother a little like a mini ski pole with nylon netting at the bottom which fitted the jar exactly. 30 seconds handpumping followed by a minute in the microwave gave perfect hot frothy milk. But some idiot broke the jar... Can't find anything like it anywhere.

Incidentally, I thought it was illegal to sell products without a proper three-pin plug in the UK (except for shavers, electric toothbrushes and similar)?

Not a good idea! Those sockets aren't designed to take the current drawn by anything other than a shaver - this draws way, way more than that.

There's a serious safety issue here - and it's probably why it's cutting out.

Thanks - that's worth knowing. Definitely going back then - but why supply with a two-pin plug?

It should have been supplied with a conversion plug (not just an adaptor) - anything less than that does not comply with the regulations here:

I'd be interested to hear what John Lewis and AEG have to say about that - if there was no conversion plug supplied.

So would I! I'll post back with their response (John Lewis's at least) once I've been able to return it. Meanwhile I think I'm going to go low-tech with one of these: amazon.co.uk/Bod…hen

Successfully returned the frother to John Lewis, but the sales assistant knew nothing about the legality or otherwise of selling it with a two-pin plug, and I couldn't wait until she fetched her manager (I needed a coffee!). Hopefully she'll pass the comment on. I've now bought the old-fashioned manual Bodum frother (delivered in two days from Amazon) and it does the same job (with the help of a microwave) for far less money and with much less fuss.
