Bought as a christmas gift and it was and is perfection. My step dad loves it and everyone who he makes a coffee for is so impressed.
Solid piece of equipment which heats milk to the perfect temperature for my taste. Good for hot chocolate and making frothy milk for coffees.
I bought this to go with my melitta caffeo solo coffee machine that i have just purchased (see separate review). It is a brilliant milk frother. It takes less than five minutes to heat and foam the milk (and i do mean foam, not froth as it is very thick and unctuous). The foam is so luscious that it took almost ten minutes to disintegrate when i made myself a capuccino this morning. The machine is like a very small kettle and it has a minute base so it really doesn’t take up much room. It also looks incredibly stylish and expensive (although i guess it is considering there are other frothers on here for £40 odd). However, i am really glad i invested in it as it does hot and cold milk and i will be able to make milkshakes in the summer. It’s very easy to use – just choose the type of froth (you can do hot milk, latte machiatto and capuccino), put the milk in the cremio, close the lid (which is very easy as you just turn it anti-clockwise to open and clockwise to close), then choose whether you want hot or cold milk using the switch on the side and, hey presto, off it goes doing its work. Can’t recommend this highly enough for coffee – and indeed non-coffee – loversoh dear – update as at 11 september 2013: this item has now stopped working. I have realised that the whisk inside is extremely flimsy and bends easily.
Very good product and excellent at heating and frothing – also excellent milkshakes – however – hard to clean (due to location of electrics) and no uk plug provided. Does the job but not without faff.

After reading other reviews, i think it holds more milk. Note, it comes with a european plug so it does need an adaptor. It has 3 frothers so you can choose between just hot milk, latte type froth, or full on cappuccino. Combined with the dolce gusto espresso pods, it makes a fab coffee. My parents loved it so much, i’ve just had to buy them one.
Very frothy item and looks nice too.
Nothing to dislike; genuine well made product, does exactly what it says on the tin. Avoid the many similar chinese imitations.
Superb 10 stars would be more appropriate, top product, great for making frothy coffee’s however even better for keeping the kids quiet with choc milkshakes etc, froths milk brilliantly and easy to clean.
