Melitta Cremio Milk Heater and Frother – : Quality Product Which heats Milk to Perfection

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.

  • A fantastic gadget
  • Easy to use and easy to clean
  • Perfect hot foamed milk in 2 minutes

Melitta Cremio Milk Heater and Frother – White

  • Milk froth at the touch of a button for all coffee specialities and hot chocolate too
  • For hot or cold milk froth or just warm milk
  • Easy clean non-stick interior, dishwashable components, wipe-down exterior surface
  • Box contents: Melitta cremia milk frother in white, two whisks, one frothing rod, heating attachment

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.

  1. 1.0 out of 5 stars doesn't work to froth milk.

    This review is from : Melitta Cremio Milk Heater and Frother – White

    It really is very poor at frothing milk. Inadequate frother coil or poor design. I really don’t think i should have to wait to warm up milk to about 7 degrees before using (my fridge is set at 4 degrees) and also change my milk brand to have greater than 3 grams of protein etc. For it to work (this is according to the manual). I buy a quality organic milk and think that a frother should just work with the milk that people have in their houses. Also 4 minutes to warm up milk is ridiculous. If i just wanted just warm milk without froth (the only thing this product does) i would put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Btw i just checked my milk carton and there is 3. So this product can’t froth properly even if following all recommendations according to the manual.

  2. 1.0 out of 5 stars Dead after 7 months little usage, no warranty option at a Amazon UK

    Used it only a few times as it is at my holiday place and just after 7 months it does not work anymore. I am a technician and checked the power connectors as well contact plate but it seems the electronic board is broken. I had the same issue in germany where a different melitta model failed two times within warranty. Now i see there is no warranty at amazon uk which is really bad so i won’t buy anymore here. Since melitta is not melitta anymore but owned by some investor trolls the quality has degraded a lot.

  4. 2.0 out of 5 stars Poor design - lid and spindle weak point

    This review is from : Melitta Cremio Milk Heater and Frother – White

    I only use it for hot milk froth at weekends and the odd hot chocolate. Owned it for 5 months and it is now more fiddly to use and gave up using it. The centre spindle is simply glued in one spot onto the plastic lid and the glue spot has brojen. It means it is more fiddly to operate and difficult to take off the lid from the unit.
