Nearly bought one myself but sadly doesn't really cater for Hot chocolate fanatics as it just don't hold enough milk.

Did you have to wind that one up? Sounds silly cheap.
The lidl milk frother was £20. The coffee grinder was £10.

I bought a Severin from Amazon.de a couple of years ago, the heating version and would highly recommend it. It is a lot more expensive but the quality is obvious and I am confident better value long term. Oh and it's plenty big enough for a couple of hot chocolates.
I would disagree to the comment of saying it only gets milk lukewarm. I've got this milk frother/heater, and use it with my Lavazza coffee machine. The coffee comes out perfect at ~59/60C, and so does the milk. I've got a laser guided thermometer which is very accurate!

I think most frothers aim for 65C & kettles to boil water generally from a min of 70C (temp controlled). So perhaps not that hot.

Kettles boil water at 100c (assuming you're roughly around sea level)
I think 60C is perfect for coffee. Boiling water destroys the taste of coffee, so it shouldn't be so very hot. As the milk is warmed to the same temp as the coffee, and ready to drink straight away, it is perfect for use with a coffee machine, and an essential bit of kit if you like milk in your coffee.

I've also used the machine to good effect to make mochas. I just *slowly* add good quality chocolate powder to the milk as it is swirling and getting warmer, then add that to the espresso.

Epic.

That is true if you don't have a temp controlled kettle. Otherwise 70/80/90/100 are often options.

And look at the price!
ordered. .great price!
the nespresso aerocchino has two different sized spinny thing options for frothing but maybe that's because it takes a bigger volume?... don't suppose anyone knows if this does too? nothing on JL website or lavazza store...

If you want to save a bit of money and time I would order a handheld milk frother for about £3 online and pre heat your milk in the microwave and voila you have hot frothy milk....btw I speak from experience of owning one of these flashy milk frothers and in truth...its more hassle at a greater cost and time!

That's cold are you sure your thermometer is pointing in the right place
If you want adjustable heat, a large tank to make like 3 cups at once(not have to wait for the next batch) this is TheOne.... Big bucks, about £90.... But a good bit of kit. milkfrotherworld.co.uk/sev…ew/

Totally agree with you on this one. Been there too.
We have one, it's quite good...only downside is you have to use full fat milk or it doesn't froth. My sister has the Lidl one and it froths semi skimmed milk too so better in my opinion!

I believe one is for heating milk and one is for frothing. Yes it is because it holds more milk.

This one is £25, but not as nice looking, other wise they all seem to be more than £30, so looks a good deal.
I have had mine for six months now, its fantastic. The trick to frothing the milk is to use very cold milk.
Full fat milk froths better than skim milk, semi skim ok.
You have two attachments one for part froth, one other for very thick froth.
You will notice a big difference if you switch to Lactose Free Milk, we use Semi Skim. Lactose free milk makes a massive difference some how, so try semi skim.
If we use the perforated attachment only, you will find 90% will be froth 10% milk. The other attachment you will combine to heat the milk for latte coffee 80% heat 20% froth.
It does pay to read the instructions provided, to understand what the attachments are for, and the levels mean.
Like most I thought it would be straight forward, but the instructions do give 100% results as intended
So there are two types of frother...

The ones like the Severin linked above are induction based. A small magnetic whisk goes inside the metal cup, and it is whizzed around magnetically. You pop that out and give it a quick clean, and then the cup goes in the dishwasher.

No fuss to clean at all.

The ones like the LOGIK linked above have a mechanism inside which is fixed and which you have to clean around, which is an absolutely unenviable task.

It's worth paying more for an induction frother, because it's the difference between spending 25 quid on something you won't use, and 50 quid on something you use every day.

(Or for the less chronically lazy than I am - but don't kid yourselves - it's at least the difference between spending 25 quid and 15 minutes every time you use it, or 50 quid and less seconds than worth counting.)

The Lavazza looks like it could be an induction one, but I'm not sure? It would be a good deal if so, and very meh if not. If it truly is a rebranded Severin milk frother SM 9495, jump on it unless you're allergic to frothy milk.

I've looked inside it and it is a induction one. No fixed parts.
This is the Severin one I have. It's great.

As you say, def buy the induction type.

Just been in Sainsbury's. They have it on offer for £50 oO
Still seems expensive for what it is, but then that Severin one is even more so oO

I am voting luke-warm
The debate can go on but like most things in life it's a choice, am I willing to pay double for a quality German product that lasts me 10 years or half for something from China that might last me 3 years before burning out.

If you think the tech will move on in 3 years to the extent that the product will be significantly outdated or you simply can't afford the higher price then the second option may appeal. If the product is one as simple as a milk frother/heater and can't improve I prefer to spend the extra. I've probably jinxed it now.

The Lavazza one posted here looks the same as the basic Severin model someone mentioned but may be (I don't know) imported from China and branded by these 2 firms if not others.
