Not out till 31st.
Has been this price before - see previous thread hotukdeals.com/dea…567
Also plenty of reviews on the Aldi website.
Had mine for £8.99 when they reduced them after the last time they were out.

Good bit of kit but not worth £20, wait until they are reduced!

People really seem to vary on their opinion of these.

Looking on ebay/Amazon/Wish these copies of the Aerocinno are all £35+. Many people comment no real difference between cheaper or more expensive versions so it really seems to be a question of expectation vs price.

Personally even at £20 I think its worth a try considering the 3 year warranty/ ease of a full refund.
The only problem with these is the capacity. Looks like you can only do one drink at a time. Dualit do a larger capacity but it's £50
We have had it for about 18 months and works as should absolutely fine. Just a bit of a pain cleaning it and removing the stirrer, but the non sick coating has not deteriorated, which happened on a previous Lidl one.

Morrisons have one for £17 with an induction /magnetic stirrer so it is flat inside and should be easier to clean. I think I'll get that when this one breaks, which it is not showing any sign of!

Any further details on this - can't see anything from Morrisons online other than a £10 version of a £1 frother.

Great thanks. Looks like it’s the same concept...? Like the clonealikes on EBay/Amazon/ Wish.
Two different inserts for the base. One just to stir or one to froth.
Doesn’t look any different from this one?

The whole mechanism is different for both attachments, is what I meant, both have similar stirrer and frother attachments. However, with the Aldi one, there is a protruding spindle/shaft for each of the two attachments, whereas the Morrisons one uses a magnetic type mechanism so the inside is completely flat and sealed.

It's not a big deal and both probably perform just as well, but based on my experience of this Aldi one and a previous similar style, just something I've been considering when I need to replace it (my previous one, the non sick coating started to deteriorate and then my daughter submerged it to wash it, so it was temperamental after being dried!). There are more expensive ones where the the cup/jug section detaches from the part housing the heater element and motor to allow for cleaning in a dishwasher, even.

With the Morrisons one being cheaper, it seems a no brainer anyway, unless wishing to order online.

Yes I do have one of these. I will be honest theres two stirs with levels inside to know where your milk goes for which stirrer. I've made cappinco and I use it for my whittard hot chocolates. I use this to reheat my coffees when I'm working from home. This is a great tool for your nice coffees and standard ones. It's well worth the money I got it for the same price as last year. Also a tip clean out straight away I used kitchen paper towel to clean it. Stops the non stick from being damaged.

Yes, that is similar to what I do, but with a little washable cloth thing (have several that my wife crochets, or something, so they are changed daily), rather than waste paper - thinking of the trees and all that.

As I said it, it's not a really big deal, was just offering my experience and thoughts when it comes to a replacement (my mum is happy with hers, from Morrisons on my suggestion). I didn't expect to be commenting several times on this post!
Edited by: "Rickardo" 28th May
Had ours for over 2 years and still going strong... just as good as the aerochino IMO. You MUST clean it out straight away.
I broke the brother element a year ago - phoned up the company and they sent three replacements out FOC. I bought it for £9 from Aldi but would still recommend it at £19.99

Works very well with cow's milk, soya milk is the best though - turns it so frothy it resembles a mr whippy!
Does this just make a bubbly froth eg for a cappucino, or can you get a proper velvety microfoam like you'd want for a flat white or latte art?

theres a timer on it and in my opinion if you leave it to hit the timer its too frothy. You can just stop halfway to get a better 'microfoam' just fine though.

No burning for me - but you must clean it out after each and every use otherwise it will burn the residue left from the last time you used it.
As previously mentioned the more expensive milk frothers come with a detachable jug making it much easier to clean. If you use it more than once a day it might be worth the extra few quid for the convenience. I have an older version of this one and going strong after a few years amazon.co.uk/Lav…-16

Maybe I didn’t clean it well enough 🙈
I've never been overly impressed with the Nespresso aeroccino. Didn't feel it warned the milk up enough (although some always got burned at the same spot at the bottom) and the forth was weak and lacked density.

Near the end I mainly used it for the cooling feature in summer to make cold coffee based drinks.
deanwall28/05/2020 15:19

True but if someone planned on using this two or more times a day they might see the time saved cleaning and convenience as good value.
I picked up one of these few months back when I spotted it in Aldi, sure I paid less than £10 but I don't really remember
First milk frother so can't compare to others, it comes with two attachments/stirrers - one whips up a lot of froth, one is more subtle
There are two fill lines, the heavy frother allows a much smaller max amount of milk
It warms the milk enough pretty good, makes a good temp hot chocolate with just chocolate powder and milk in here without any other heating needed
I do find the heavy frother gives me too much froth, and the gentler one doesn't give me quite as much as I'd like
I'm going to try as someone mentioned above and turn it off before the timer ends to get a happy medium
I wasn't overly impressed, but then again it has remained out of the work top and gets used still occasionally. Lots of things I've bought like this have used once or twice then given up, so thats something
This type of frother works well - it makes a much smoother and more liquid foam than the handheld little whisk types. It won't , and couldn't, compare to heating milk with a steam wand but it's not too far off. I would agree these are way overpriced for what they are, though.

They are a bit of a pain to clean. There is a nub in the bottom of the container to which you fit the different attachments, and this nub makes it difficult to clean everywhere. If I was replacing the one I have, I'd pay the extra for one with a magnetic stirrer or removable container that can go in the dishwasher. When you clean this, it's a bit like cleaning a kettle - it has the exposed electrical connection on the bottom so you have to clean the inside without getting the rest too wet. I certainly wouldn't be comfortable dunking it in soapy water.

For those having problems with burning - use whole milk. Not only is the texture of the foam far better (this is partly why coffee shop coffees taste nicer) but I've never had it burn. Lower fat milks like B.O.B I've found burn on after one use and are difficult to clean off. For the 100ml of milk you use per coffee in one of these, the difference between skimmed and whole is about 20 calories which is well worth it.

Here's how I use this to approximate a flat white/ capuccino style drink at home:
- Fill your mug/cup with hot boiled water to warm it through
- Tip the hot water out of your cup, and make a strong shot of coffee into the cup. I use an Aeropress or Moka pot, but use whatever you have - espresso/ pod machine etc.
- Add whole milk to your frother up to the lower line, switch on. (I will try someone's suggestion here to stop it early)
- When it has finished, bang it against your work surface a couple of times to pop the big bubbles. Give it a quick swirl to stop the foam separating from the liquid milk underneath.
- Hold your cup over the sink and pour the milk in one smooth motion, from a height. You want the milk to hit the coffee and mix with it. Sometimes this is easier if you pour the milk from the frother into a jug first, but be quick if you do. The result should look foamy, and lightly coffee coloured. I'd be impressed if you can achieve latte art! If it looks like white foam, you've not poured with enough impact.
- Drink it. It will be ready almost straightaway. The longer you leave it, the more of a Guinness effect you'll get with a stiff foam floating on flat coffee.

If this all sounds too much - get a takeaway drink from a local cafe - they've got better kit than you and they need the income right now!
I've bought mine nearly 3 years ago in-store for £20 and I've been using it 1-3 times a day (love my lattes).
It still works perfectly and I haven't had a single issue with it.
Sold out after waiting in a queue ...

I just got this from Morrisons today and at 17£ it's a steal. I was considering splashing out on a proper brand one but I thought let me give it a chance. So far I only tried the cold milk froth and I was quite impressed. Yes for frothing the max is only 100ml but when I poured it into my latte cup it is enough to make one latte. Looking forward to trying the hot milk froth with a shot of espresso tomorrow morning. Thank you guys.
