If you like making Starbucks Coffee from home with milk that is frothed or whipped, this is not the too for the job. It simply spins inside the milk whether it is cold or hot. I cannot understand why this is being sold as a frother. It is annoying having to take the time to return the product when it is only $** or less to begin with, but I don't want to donate it and have someone feel disappointed like I did. I bought a small frother from another maker that used only one battery that did a terrific job for one year. This one should have been at least powerful enough to get the job done and it did not. I ended up purchasing a nicer counter milk steamer / frother that makes higher end froth from cold, fat free milk that is remarkable. Brand I bought Froth Au Lait. Don't know much about it, but it is easy to clean and I hope to see it on Overstock soon so I can purchase for family members!
