Milk frother easy & convenient
I love this milk frother b/c it can make enough frothed milk for 6 lattes at once which means more guests can enjoy their drink at the same time. It has quantity markings on the inside, reducing waste from "guessing" the amount needed ... and ...It's easy to clean.
Best appliance in my kitchen
I’ve had this milk frother for almost a year now and I love it! It’s confirmed my coffee snobbery - won’t buy a coffee anymore as I can’t match what I make at home! It’s simple to use and clean - quiet and can froth milk for 2-4 coffees at a time. I have one at work too and have my in-laws hooked on one too.
Breville Milk Cafe BMF600
Got this as a gift, worked fine for a month. After that it started making loud noise. Few days later it blew up the fuse at my home and smoke started coming out of the machine.
Update : Customer Support issued me a replacement device

Without a doubt the best frother on the market
Most fantastic milk frother after having a couple of other brands. The Breville is amazing. Easy to use. Easy to clean. Can do several coffees at once. Can choose desired temperature. Is dishwasher safe if choose to do so but really no need to as it just wipes clean. The best milk frother on the market.
Greatly Exceeds Expectations
My milk frothing journey began with Aldi’s machine which did a good job but having to clean after EVERY froth, to remove the burnt ‘scum’ from the bottom, was a pain.
Enter the Breville. Woohoo, I’m free!
Pour in the milk, press start, make your coffee, beep beep, milk’s ready, pour, rinse jug, turn upside down on dish rack - you’re done! Yeah, no scrubbing. I think that’s awesome.
So, we use ours daily, it’s approximately 6 months old, and so far, no issues. It continues to deliver excellent froth at an extra hot temperature which I like. You can select the temp you want on the dial. This machine is simple to use, isn’t terribly noisy and prepares the milk quite quickly.
Very happy with this purchase. 5 stars.

Easy to use and easy to clean
The cappuccino froth is excellent. It be would nice if the latte attachment produced just a tad more froth but otherwise it is quite good. I like the way it comes in two parts so you can clean the jug without worrying about water getting into the electricals.
Worked well at first then...
Then failed as often on repeat usage with a triple beep error. Workaround was to unplug it from wall and leave disconnected for 6 plus hours. Swapped it out as still under warranty. Replacement worked better at first with what sounded like a fan inside which might have been a workaround for a design issue with the first iteration. Sadly it too failed after some months and I’ve moved on.
Life Expectancy? Fabulous Frother No More.
I love my machine and have used it daily but the froth is now poor. How long should it last? I have tried cleaning the both disks thoroughly. So sad. Don't know whether to replace the disks and wait ( latte one early used) or buy a new machine. Too expensive to have it last and fail.
Purchased in September 2017.
I like that it can produce lots of froth for at least 2 cups although it is not good when you only want a cup of cappuccino. I tried the latte disc but it did not work for the almond milk I got so I will try another brand. Overall it's easy to use and to clean. It just takes a bit long, nearly 2 mins to froth a minimum amount of milk at the lowest recommended temperature.
Has pros and cons but I would buy it again
It is a good product in many ways, as other reviewers have noted. I had a faulty one first time round, and when looking to replace it I chose to buy the same again as it has the best features.
My first one had issues with the magnet inside not connecting, which is what causes it not to start. It would eventually if I slid the jug around in a circle on the base until I heard the magnet click, but it was a real hassle and it eventually stopped working altogether. If this happens to you, take it back straight away and get it replaced.
The s...econd one has been much better. We got a year out of it without issues. After that we have had a year of it beeping intermittently to signal an issue, but it still works. It has now been 2 years, and occasionally the thermostat does not work and the milk boils and has to be thrown away. It did that two times in a row recently, when it had happened very rarely before, so not sure how much longer we have before it dies. The size of the jug, and the ability to set the temperature of the milk are essential to us, so we will probably buy the same again, but will try to get it on special. I might buy the extended warranty this time, but would have to consider the cost benefit ratio...

Good machine, bit pricey, needs smaller volumes
After the frother that came with my Nespresso finally conked it, I went with this machine. I managed to pick it up on eBay for a pretty good deal (manufacturer refurbished), but it is still a slightly pricey unit. The milk froth, especially on cappuccino setting, is really good. Similarly, I love that the pot is stainless. It's even easier to clean than my last one, which had a non-stick coating. My only real complaint is that the volumes it froths are quite large. Even on the minimum setting I have enough to make a double cappuccino and then h...ave about a cup of froth leftover. Great if you're serving a few people, but I end up having to make a giant cappuccino and still drink a bunch of milk, or else tip a fair bit out. That said, if you need milk frothed for a bunch of people, can't imagine any better.
I purchased the Breville milk cafe this year when my new machine failed to give me the standard that I needed. My Sister in law has one and I liked hers so was happy to have one for myself.
I first loved that this machine has temperature settings so that you can choose how hot or not to have your coffee. I also really liked the 2 attachments for lattes and one for cappuccinos as I like both. I first tried the cappuccino one and found that there was way too much froth, so much that it spilled over the sides even though I was well below the m...aximum milk line. I then tried the latte attachment and found that there was too little froth and one person would have a nice latte and the rest of the milk would be a flat white. So my summary is that this machine is a fence sitter. The milk is nice, however at the price point you pay for this machine, you do expect better quality, not 2 extremes both ends!
Works well when you get used to it
For years I have used the milk frother which is part of my DeLonghi coffee machine. That works pretty well but costs over $100 annually to service. I bought the Breville in hope that it would live up to the good reviews rather than the bad and my hope has been realised. It has taken some time to identify the correct milk but for you folk who have problems with frothing I can give you my advice. Pauls low fat Smarter White usually does a good job but with the hot weather the milk is lower in protein which makes it nearly impossible to froth. ...So I bought Pauls low fat Zymil and that makes a really good froth. Perhaps too good, so this morning I used a 50-50 mix of the two milks and the result was perfect! Apart from that, the daily cleaning and maintenance is easy, noise level is very acceptable and I find the frothing/heating process does not take long at all.
Dangerous electrical fault
I have owned my Breville Cafe for a few years and it worked fine. Then all of a sudden today it just turned on by itself while it was stored in the appliance cupboard. Thank God I was home or it could have caused an electrical fire and burnt the house down.

Love it but unfortunately doesn’t froth some Almond Milk
Love my frother but unfortunately it doesn’t froth some brands of almond milk (that are too watery). Froths soy milk amazing though. Great product, very liable and easy to clean after use. Dishwasher safe. Easy to use. Multiple functions. Different temperatures and froth types. I’m not good at making an instant coffee but this makes me look good!

Fantastic performer without peer but don't lose your receipt!!!!
There is no question that this is the best milk frother bar none, with a very big but........
We have had Aldi and Aeroccino frothers and they are very very average. The froth is never as good as steam and once they get burnt stuff on the bottom it is all down hill and just too much effort.
Making home coffee is never as good as the cafe with these units which takes the fun and value out of life.
Enter the Breville frother. On paper this thing looks perfect. In operation it is even better! The work this unit does is outstanding, better t...
Best Hot Chocolate Maker For Home Use
I researched and researched as much as I could about hot chocolate makers.
This one was the best I could find.
Unfortunately most of the reviews and videos only focus on the frother.
Frothers are not unique but hot chocolate makers are.
I finally found a couple of videos after tireless searching that showed the hot chocolate making capabilities.
It makes hot hot chocolate and not lukewarm.
It is easy to use and clean.
The one thing to note is that the chocolate or sugar or any additive must be finely ground or it will stop spinning as th...

Questions & Answers
Hi I have the 3 beep problem keeps shutting down, everything is clean.. is there anything else I can do, before throwing it in the bin, microwave is my milk heater, due to this product having a mind of its own
I love this machine & highly recommend it, have never had any problems. With your issue, I'd contact Breville - give them the chance to remedy the situation before you blast their product. If they respond appropriately, that's good. They said in the past "Please give us the opportunity to correct the situation by contacting our dedicated customer care team at 1300 139 798 (M-F, 8am-5pm) or at email@example.com
PS. When not being used, I turn it off at the power, that might be an advantage.
My milk frother has been awesome for about 6 months but now it will not froth the milk, it only heats the milk and whisks it around a bit. Any idea what is wrong. Disc firmly in place There apperas to be a different motor noise when it is on
Have you changed your brand of milk? Try storing your container in the frig and make sure the milk is nice and cold before adding it
Thanks milk the same straight out of fridge. I feel that something is wrong with the disc. But can’t see anything. Could there be an issue with how the jug sits on cradle??
Milk frother only works interrmittently.
Never sure if it is going to work or not, one day it will the next it won't. Checked & double checked frothing wheel has clicked in place, i've move jug around in different positions. Starts beeping a few seconds into the cycle, frothing wheel does NOT spin & it WON'T heat. Any ideas on how to fix please?
Dial is always on as hot as it will go, i have tried different temps too to try & get it working but it doesn't make a difference. I agree, it's amazing if u get it on a day it works. Thx for ur reply
Mine does this too ... and will take ages for it to 'cool down' after it has stopped midway heating the milk. I have noticed that if there's any condensation on the outside of the jug (if you've put chilled milk in it and not turned it on immediately) thats a guarantee that it either wont start, or will turn off too soon.
