Mine arrived today - looked new and came with the hot chocolat sachets.

These are rarely reduced.

Only valid at this price whilst amazon have 20% off selected warehouse products.

And yes I’m sure you can boil some milk and whisk it for free.

I doubt that would include the 10 sachets. (Although it’s a gamble with the warehouse ones....)

Give it a go - just grate some chocolate and add it in.

I use ours for hot chocolate (powdered)
Let the milk get near temp and drop in the required powder and let if finish off.
Ensure you give it a good scrub out straight away and ensure you havent missed any, as it will scald/burn next time you use the frother.

I do use my nespresso milk frother to make hot chocolate and it is a game changer! You don’t need anything else, it makes your hot chocolate lovely and smooth
I wanted one of these for my son for Christmas, but bought a lavazza milk frother instead at a fraction of the price. Works great.
Does this really make amazing hot chocolate?
Do my kids need it ???

One is sold by Amazon warehouse, the other by a third party seller.

Given the choice, I’d go with the one from Amazon’s warehouse
For clarity, it’s the OP’s deal that is with Amazon Warehouse - voted hot!

Oh yes so it is
Thank you
Ordered via amazon
Can’t wait
My kids will love it
These are great and make a really good hot chocolate. Use mine all the time but tbh the velvetiser and the sachets are really overpriced. Maybe worth it if you love a good hot chocolate.
great, ordered! My £40 giftcard put to good use

No

I have both and there is no comparison. Much smoother and richer flavour in the velvetiser


Top tip to save a fortune is to buy choc chips from callebaut on amazon (70% cocoa). Then works out at 25p per cup rather than £1.20

Deal is good but for £30 more from hotel chocolat you get a new one with excellent podcups and with

Included with your Velvetiser:

  • 10 hot chocolate single-serves in 5 different flavours worth £12.
  • 2 ceramic Podcups worth £15.
  • A 2-for-1 code for your next box of single-serves.

Do you only make hot chocolate using actual hard chocolate or do you use cocoa powder? I had a Sage Bean to Cup Coffee machine until recently and was using the steam wand on that to make amazing hot chocolate with cocoa/sugar - it was literally the best thing ever. I love hot chocolate and recently ordered tons of stuff from Hotel Chocolat including a Hamper which has a container of their solid Hot Chocolate flakes for use in this, but I wouldn't want to use solid chocolate long term as it seems far too luxurious and expensive. Anyway, I ordered a Copper one - more expensive but looked better. Also - I'm assuming these come with the cups / hot choc sachets. If mine doesn't, I will send it back. I noticed that on some of them they list condition as 'missing the pods/pouches' which I assumed means the rest must have them...

How much do you normally get that Callebaut for? Is £26 for 2.5 kg what you normally pay? Also, why would you want 70% instead of 80% or higher? I thought cocoa powder is 100% so I'm confused why using a lower percentage will give a better hot chocolate

Can be as low as £20.

anything more than 70% cocoa mass will be too bitter for most people

Sorry. Forgot to mention but it did come with the pods and the code for BOGOF. But amazon warehouse is dependent on the returner so YMMV.

Hi - I've done both and has come out amazing regardless. I would advise just making everything in one go though as it melts / aerates the chocolate that way better and is less hassle. When making any hot chocolate with cocoa always obviously make sure you mix with a small amount of milk first and get a smooth paste and then add more milk. Make sure you don't overfill your milk. I've made it straight in the mug using manual frothing many times, but use the metal milk jug on auto for the first few attempts if you're not confident with frothing. The Sage steam wand makes the best hot chocolate you've ever had... I normally put lots of 100% cocoa powder in mine and it comes out amazing.

Bought the copper coloured velvetiser at Xmas. A lot of money but makes the best hot chocolate ever. I love the 50% milky one. You will not regret buying one as a luxury item. Good find OP
Added some heat but when I look towards the end of last year. There appeared to be a few reviews from people stating their item was faulty. Perhaps there was a bad batch? I think the reviewers said the item just died after a few uses. I wasn't looking to buy. I was curious to see what people thought of it. Hopefully they have sorted out any possible issue. Coffee drinkers and tea drinkers have lots of options and gadgets. About time hot chocolate drinkers have something. Wonder if other manufacturers will soon produce their own version?
Had two so far and they’ve tasted better than any hot chocolate ive had in a shop
i bought one of these and so glad i did , the only thing is it isnt quite hot enough for me as it heats to the correct temp for chocolate so all i do is put hot water in my cup until the drink is ready and that makes it perfect
