Bodum Milk Frother Not Spinning
The Bodum Bistro Electric Milk Frother is an efficient yet simple machine for creating rich and airy foam like you find in coffee shops. All you have to do is plug it in, attach the frothing whisk attachment, pour in some cold milk, and secure the lid firmly. Once set at temperature, this machine automatically shuts off after completion.
The Bistro’s compact design and convenient cord storage make it perfect for small spaces, like dorm rooms or offices. Furthermore, this electric milk frother is one of the smallest on the market at just 4.38 x 5.63 x 7.88 inches and under 2 pounds in weight – making it an ideal choice for dorms or offices alike.
This compact and portable frother stands out from other models due to its features, including the capacity to heat and froth cold milk up to an ideal 158 degrees Fahrenheit and hot foam from any type of milk – including oat or whole.
* Temperature Control: Some more advanced models feature temperature settings to help create the ideal froth with different types of milk. Regular milk should be heated to around 170 degF, while soy or almond milk should not be warmed beyond 140 degF as this may alter their flavor.
No matter if you use dairy or non-dairy milk, the froth can be made up to 10 ounces at once – more than enough for a large cup of coffee or hot chocolate.
The frothing whisk is designed to introduce hundreds of air bubbles into milk, creating that signature foam you find at coffee shops. Once you pour in cold milk, the device froths it until its temperature reaches an ideal 158 degrees Fahrenheit.
Easy to use and compatible with a wide variety of milk types, from dairy to soy or almond. Plus, its small footprint makes it ideal for kitchens with limited counter space as the base can be stored inside for convenient access.
For optimal performance when using your frother, ensure you always have fresh, clean milk on hand. If it hasn’t been filtered in some time, your milk may not be as creamy and delicious as it could be.
Another common issue with frothers is overheating, which can cause your frothed milk to boil over. This occurs when too much pressure builds up when steam enters the machine and pushes against its seal. To prevent this from happening, let the frother cool down for a few minutes before making your drink.
Additionally, inspect the carafe or piping in your frother for dirt that could be causing it to overheat. A little dirt is acceptable, but too much dirt will reduce its life and cause breakdown sooner than anticipated.
Preventing this problem from occurring is to keep the frother in a clean and dry area, and always check it for debris before use. Dirt can ruin the taste of your milk as well as damage its piping or carafe, leading to costly repairs.
