March 23, 2014Not Hot enough
"This is a great item to have it foams great but it never get the milk hot enough I have been heating it longer to get the heat I want which is around the 170 mark. If it is to go that hot let me know for I can return this I got as a gift at Christmas."
December 25, 2013outstanding foamer
"I purchased the Milk Cafe two years ago just for hot cocoa and was very pleased with the results although I only used it during the winter months. Then I received a Nespresso maker last year and now I use the Milk Cafe every single day for the best foamed milk ever. It never fails to produce the best foam at just the right temp. (no scalded milk to ruin a good cap) I do suggest that you use organic milk (either whole or 2%) for best results (I suspect it has a higher protein count than non organic and that makes all the difference in the world when you want the finest foam on that morning cappuccino or latte!) I was somewhat guilty for buying what is clearly a product aimed at the people with excessive disposable income, but I'll learn to live with this guilt as I have a proper cappuccino every day. (I may burn in hell for this attitude). "
November 26, 2013NOT HOT ENOUGH
"I purchased this product from a retailer on ebay because it was lower in price. The picture that had been provided showed that it went to extra hot but when I received the item there isn't an extra hot setting!? So it's now been returned. Breville please make this machine with an extra hot setting. 160-170 isn't hot enough on freezing cold days, 170-185 would be best! This product would have been perfect if it didn't go cold within seconds of hitting my mug. The temp stays mildly warm if put in a travel mug. Anyway.. great machine.. not enough temperature control options!!!

"I purchased the Milk Cafe in November 2010 and I've used it at least once a week since. It works just as well now as it did then. I prefer using this to the steaming wand on my espresso machine. Its a snap to clean and is extremely well constructed. I've even used soy milk in it. It doesn't froth as good as milk but it still did a decent job."
July 11, 2013Milk issues...
"Just got one, worked beautifully until it stopped working--tried foaming skim, 2%, nothing but a few big bubbles, not the beautiful dense mass of the day before. Only difference was using organic milk--skim & 2%. Went back to store & got 'regular' skim & foam is perfect again. Maybe because organic milk is heated to a higher degree (?)
Also wish there was a small cup option, as it's used for macchiato, so even the minimum delivers more than needed & much is tossed. Still, beautifully designed (love the plug) and (with the right milk) beautiful froth...

"The milk cafe is so easy to use, and makes an unbelievable milk froth. It cleans up quickly and actually compliments a single cup expresso, as the is very little that needs to be done. Whole milk works best, but 2% will also work."

"Making Lattes at home is now a breeze. Easy clean up. Kids love the hot chocolate. A bit pricey, but if you consider that Lattes are about $4.00 ++ pays for itself in a few weeks.Sleek design, looks great."
December 30, 2010Excellent product!!
"Wow!! The Milk Cafe makes perfectly frothed milk every time. The best thing is the easy clean-up. No more paying $$ for a perfect latte. It's also great for making hot chocolate for the kids. A must have for coffee lovers. "
December 22, 2010Exceeding vs. meeting
"I rarely write reviews for anything, but the "Milk Cafe" has exceeded my exceptions.
Everything Breville (the maker) said it would do, it did and then some.
The frothing quality and quantity is unbelievable? It's performances surpasses it's competitors.
But my point is that it exceeded, not just met my expectations.
When expectations are exceeded all bets are off and one is obligated to return it's seller and that is just what i will do.
