Review: Aeroccino Plus Automatic Home Milk Frother from Nespresso

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviewsnespresso.jpg

The Aeroccino Plus is a larger version of the Aeroccino that also allows you to override the heating function if you wish to froth milk without heating. The cost for the Aeroccino Plus is $129 versus $99 on the smaller Aeroccino (read our review of the earlier Aeroccino here). The reason any single serve coffee drinker would want to get an Aeroccino is the need for frothed milk for those latte and capuccino drinks you might want to make at home to save a few dollars. We used the Aeroccino Plus in this review with the new Essenza Touch and our Nespresso Essenza C100T.

The Aeroccino won't make the same frothed milk as a high end espresso machine, but it will make a very thick-rich frothed cup of hot or cold milk. The Aeroccino Plus is also larger than the earlier version, and this allows you to make enough milk for 2+ drinks depending on what your making.

How does it work? To produce warm frothed milk, heating the milk to temperatures between 140-149°F/60-65°C, quickly press the button once. To override the heating function, press the button for two full seconds.

There are a bunch of changes from the earlier Aeroccino - namely the base and button has been improved. The entire device functions reliably, and the quality of the milk froth produced is good. We had no problem whipping up several espresso based drinks lattes, cappuccinos, and just a richer more interesting cup of lungo coffee.

Also you don't have to have a Nespresso machine to use this with. If you own a Senseo, Keurig, or other single serve coffee maker that doesn't have a milk frothing option the Aeroccino is a good option to have along side. We also use it just for hot frothed cup of milk on those nights we can't sleep.

The new cold option isn't one we used much, but it does work. The hot frothed option is the way to go if you want the best results. We think at $129.99 the Aeroccino Plus is a great addition to any one cup coffee maker or single serve coffee kitchen.

Today was the second time I used the frother. The first time it worked great; however, today it will not froth the milk...any ideas as to what I should do. The machine is working, I can see the frother moving just as I did the first time, it also took about as long to complete the process, but no froth

Help, I am looking for wip at the bottom of the Nespresso Aeroccino Plus 3192. I found it at the bottom of the garbage disposal and now it's impossible to use it. I've look on the web and had no luck to find it.

I really love this machine. It makes warmed frothy milk with excellent microbubbles, much better than the previous steamer we had (which I bought in a store and cannot find online.) Our Aeroccino Plus stopped working mysteriously and I called the company. The first person I spoke to asked us to turn the unit upside down for 24 hours and try again. When it still would not work, I called back and they agreed to ship us a new unit. Their customer service is refreshingly excellent.

I am also waiting for the Keurig review before purchasing. I hear the milk/foam is not that hot from the Aeroccino. Pls reply when the review ofr Keurig is in! Thanks...

The Aeroccino Plus is better designed than the prior model, and I notice a big difference in the milk froth than the older version. The best thing is Nespresso's customer service. They shipped me this model after the prior version stopped working - a year after my wife and I bought it - no receipt needed. Terrific product and well worth the expense.

Darrylr,

No big improvements - milk frothing about the same and in the same time.


Posted by: Jay Brewer at December 11, 2008 8:24 AM

I was wondering, will you be reviewing the new Keurig frother any time soon? I have a Keurig B60 and was waiting to hear about the frother before I bought it to compliment my coffee maker.

It's a great shame you cannot seem to buy this product on it's own, only with a machine, certainly here in the UK anyway.

They would sell a ton of these things, someone should make this seperately for next christmas, they will make a mint.

Jay, do you notice any difference in what the frothed milk is like between the old Aeroccino and this new one?
