I still use the automatic frother when I am running a little late on a weekday morning, but not on weekends when I have time to do it right. It produces steamed milk and froth more conveniently than the steam attachment on my espresso machine, but the milk is rarely hot enough and there is not enough foam for me. Cleanup is very convenient. As the machine continues to produce steamed milk for several seconds after it is turned off it takes a bit of practice to avoid overfilling the cup when steaming directly into the cup. I use ut, but I would not miss it and would not replace it if I did not have it.
Someone told me about this frother, but she had not used one. I looked for reviews and was not entirely convinced by them. So I put the Capresso Froth Xpress on my Christmas list. I received a black one (wanted white but out of stock), have been using it for almost a week and I love it. All the things listed in the other reviews are true. I have not had difficulty with the temperature of the milk however, and we make mochas/lattes twice a day. My husband commented about so many little parts (there are 4), since you must assemble them and disassemble them each time to wash them, but I'm the one who does it.. and it literally takes seconds! I bought a little plastic mesh basket at the store for $1 and I just put them in it to drain-dry after use. My former frother/steamer was part of a coffee machine (not an espresso frother). It had only two parts but one had to be cleaned with a brush and the other was a milk tank which had to be cleaned with at least a sponge - it couldn't be...
This frother works very well, and I was surprised because of problems with other similar products. It is an easy cleanup (a big concern) and it heats the milk quickly. You have to fiddle with the petcock to get the right mix of creamy froth and steamy froth, but in the end you will get what you want from this machine. N.B. I have not owned it long enough to know anything about its durability. A note to purchasers: you have to make certain that the sleeve that contacts the ring from whence the hot water comes must make FIRM CONTACT or the thing simply won't work. Just make sure each piece is seated properly and let the machine do the work.
