La cafetierie has always been famous for designing their products really stylishly and with a very good quality. I got this set with a pot and two mugs as a gift from a friend at christmas and it was definitely one of the best gifts I got that year.
I love how light they are, but still feel really sturdy and very resistant, since I have accidentally dropped them into the sink several times and they have not even chipped at all. The big handles make it very comfortable to hold, even if the drink you have in is boiling hot, You wont feel the heat going through the handle. The pot has a very efficient lid to keep the drinks warm while you are on the table, having always an extra mug of whatever you are drinking, warm enough to not have to warm it up again in the microwave.
I just love the design, they come in cream with brown writing which says Chocolatiere up the sides. The jug looks kind of retro which I like. The way it works is that you mix your hot milk and powder and use the frother to thicken up and froth up the milk inside so make a professional standard hot chocolate. It's quite big too and it definitely makes more hot chocolate than just for those 2 mugs which come with it.
Personally I do not like the server bit on the pot since it is too small and sometimes the drink might spill out when you tip it too far. However, I still like it and it looks always great in my kitchen. I would definitely recommend it.
WHAT IS IT?
A gift set comprising of a 1 litre hot chocolate jug and matching pair of mugs.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
We were given this as an anniversary present and I think it's a beautiful gift, the set came well packaged in an attractive printed box and I instantly liked the design. The jug and mugs are of an identical cream ceramic with brown trim, it looks very authentically Italian and carefully dated. The mugs are thick enough to withstand a knock and all items are dishwasher safe.
The lid lifts off completely for easy access to the jug and fits securely into place to ensure the hot chocolate pours smoothly. Built into the lid is a plunger to froth the hot chocolate and this works better than expected, I always use my trusty old Baileys milk frother to whip hot chocolate up and this plunging method is a bit too long winded. The plunger works smoothly and pulls right out for cleaning.
I use lots of different hot chocolates and they are all equally good when made in this jug. This is partly because this is simply an attractive vessel to make your hot chocolate in, or even just to serve the chocolate in if you make yours in the pan. I used it last when we held a dinner party, it will hold three mugs of hot chocolate but is easily rinsed and refilled if you need more. I can't find the mugs available separately and that's a shame as I'd like to buy another four to have a matching set for everyone.
The jug and mugs are of high quality and flawlessly made, they are a functional and decorative item that are value for money even if mainly used as an ornament. I was given a tip recently to warm the jug through by swilling with hot water before pouring the hot chocolate in, this keeps the drink warmer for longer and does work so give it a try if you are using the jug just for yourself to save the remaining cups going cold.
