Advantages: froths well, price
I recently went into a store and these frothers were £10! So when I spend only £1 on the frothier at IKEA I was pretty happy knowing that I had purchased such a bargain previously. I would never spend £10 on one now I have bought one for a £1 and it works really well.
I bought this milk frothier mainly for my partner more than anything because he tends to froth his milk when he is having lattes. This requires 2x AA batteries so it obviously costs a little more than the £1 but I guess if you purchased rechargeable batteries the cost would end up been very little.
It takes very little time at all to make the milk froth I would say around 15-20 seconds and really froths the milk well. I always froth the milk when it is hot because we use it for lattes so I must admit I have no idea what it is like frothing cold milk I guess it will do it's trick the same way. People always comment on how lovely my coffees are and I'm sure its down to this frother because it does make the coffee look and taste more like a coffee from a proper coffee shop because of the foamy frothy milk this frother creates.
How to use
Put the frother into the cup with the drink in before you turn it on because trust me it will go everywere if not. Then you simply have to turn the switch on and froth the drink until you feel like the drink is frothed to your standard. Once again switch the frother off before removing it from the cup as like I said before it will go everywhere if not. I guess its logic really, something I'm sure you'd already know to do!
How to clean
I clean the frother in hot water with some fairy just like I normally do the washing up. It is simple to wash as you only need to curl the frother twirl bit not the actual bit you hold because obviously there is batteries in there.
Overall, this frother is great and does exactly what I need it to do, it really froithes up the milk when I am having milky coffee based drinks and is so simple to use all you have to do is turn it on and let the frother froth!
Summary: love it!
