::::: TAP & SWIRL for Fab Silky Frothy Froth :::::

Great Machine actually does what it says - I tried the 2 magnetic stirrers that come with the Machine (make sure they actually ‘Click’ into place). Both Stirrers produce the same Froth . I use Plant Based Barista Milk/Liquid (I don’t like the smell & taste of Cow’s Milk). To get the silky smooth milk gently tap the Jug on a hard surface (Tap & Swirl) the Jug, until the Milk looks silky & smooth, with no largish bubbles. This is the type of Froth that is in a Latte. The Tap & Swirl is the secret. Show details

Jug Wobbles

My jug is faulty from the first use, it wobbles whilst in action, the more milk used, the worse the wobble. Have contacted Breville directly and they are very unhelpful. I lodged my concern over 2 weeks ago, going back and forth with their repeated questions indicating it's dirty (wobble on first use brand new), I have sent a video of the wobble in action and photos showing a perfectly clean jug and base, and still no resolution! Aftersales support from Breville is very slow and still no outcome. Its a massive shame their customer service is so bad, cause the product is otherwise impressive, and if it wasn't for the wobble and the lack of service, this jug is easily a 5 star for perfectly smooth and creamy frothed milk. Very disappointed. Show details

Good but fatally flawed

This is my second unit, both failed @ about the 2-year mark. They do the job well, but over time they develop fine cracks from the centre post outward. If any moisture gets through these cracks, as inevitably happens, they instantly short out. As much as I like using this device they need a design update, I will not purchase another. One customer lost to the competition! Show details

! Avoid ! - It was good until it died

Only lasted a bit over a year and then it died (used only on weekends).... only months out of warranty so there goes that money. Was cared for and died for no apparent reason. Planned obsolescence for sure! Show details

Brilliant product

I bought this after my nespresso milk frother stopped working. It is significantly better than the nespresso, and i use it every day. The only comments to note: the minimum milk level is quite high but i just make sure the frother is covered (125ml) and it seems to be fine. Light milk doesn’t froth that well, but still usable. It is really easy to clean. Overall, a great product. Show details

Just get it! It'll level up your at-home beverage game!

I got it five days ago and have already used it 15+ times. It froths perfectly every time (especially when you use the 60 degrees level). I've tested it with a few different kinds of milk, and so far, Oatly Barista Edition Oat Milk, So Good Extra Creamy Oat Milk, and regular full cream milk work amazingly.

I LOVE this machine

I know it's just a milk frother, but for an almond chai latte snob such as myself, this is a dream machine.
I brew the leaf tea in just enough water then strain it into the frother as it's heating the almond milk. You can also heat the almond milk and then let it brew, but you don't get the spicy froth using this method. The capacity is great. Our boys use it for hot chocolates and they can get 2 cups in one go. Just make sure you don't add the powder in a clump. Dissolve it first or sprinkle it on top. Great and accurate temp adjustment. Less milk = more froth or if you want more milk and less froth, use the other included attachment. Always rinse immediately after use and it's good to go for next time! Nice work once again Breville! Show details

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

I purchased this product 14mths ago and it worked very well. However, over the past 2-3mths it has stopped frothing. I have contacted Breville to assist with this issue, however they have put it in the too hard basket, as it is over the 12mth warranty period. However, I wonder if they are taking a fair and reasonable approach to this issue as stated by consumer affairs? Extremely disappointed. Show details

5 months of use and it is starting to break

Easy to clean, easy to use settings, quick and relatively quiet. Magnet starting to fail after 5 months. Two frothing options. Great for hot chocolates. Looks good in the kitchen. Show details

Hot milk & good froth

Use frother average 3 times day since 2017. Purchased at Myer with care plan which gives me a total of 5 years replacement, excellent! Haven’t needed it as this little beast hasn’t missed a beat. Really hot temp and it’s a good froth. Show details

I have recently purchased this product and have no problems,There must be a tiny imperfection somewhere in the jug. Return it for replacement.

My machine when I press start will spin for a 2 seconds then stop and start beeping. What can I do to fix this so that I can just press the start button and it starts up?

Tim Wearne
Tim Wearne  

Reset your machine. turn off power and turn dial back to cold spin and start again. Check if all vents at the bottom are clear. If this doesn't work you should call breville for support. Good luck!

What temp range does this heat up to?

Tim Wearne
Tim Wearne  

There is a dial that you can adjust the temp on. There is an optimal range for frothing (60 degrees). However, mine doesn't work in that range any more and also at the 70 degrees mark. Over 70 degrees is the max for the frother.

Carly P.

The temperature is set via a dial that can reach a maximum of 70 degrees Celsius. I find that I have mine set at 70 at all times but doesn’t ever feel quite hot enough.

Features

  • This Breville milk frother uses an induction heating method that provides gradual, even heat distribution, to achieve tiny bubbles rather than big ones.
  • An auto shut-off feature turns the frother off when the milk has reached the programmed temperature.
  • A dishwasher-safe jug helps to save precious cleaning time doing better things.
  • This milk frother has a large capacity of around 3 cups of milk, or 740mL.
  • Not just made for hot drinks, this versatile milk frother has 4 settings: Cold stir, Warm, Optimum temperature and Hot.
  • Designed with a brushed stainless steel finish that’s neutral-hued and sturdy.
  • Comes with the following accessories included: latte frothing disc, cappuccino frothing disc, and a plastic measuring cap that you can add powdered ingredients to, such as hot chocolate, cocoa powder and chai latte.

Points of praise

  • This handy electric jug does what it’s supposed to, and froths milk effectively so that it makes tasty drinks.
  • Makes a generous usable quantity of 500mL, or 2 cups of milk per frothing session.
  • The fact that this frother is easy to use and clean was appreciated by reviewers.
  • This frother’s multi-functional capabilities were considered convenient. It also works as a milk and drink warmer. This helped reviewers make tasty lattes and hot chocolates.
  • The frothing discs work well and make delicious hot drinks.
  • Reviewers reported that they witnessed well-frothed milk with cow’s milk as well as almond and soy milks.

Points to consider

  • A smaller number of reviewers experienced electrical faults with their milk frother, including a common error known as the ‘3 beeps of death,’ after which the machine will often stop working. This was not appreciated by reviewers, considering the frother’s expensive price.
