4. Empty the container and fill with about 100
grams of milk for each cappuccino to be prepared. In choosing the size of the container,
bear in mind that the milk doubles or triples in
volume. You are recommended to use semiskimmed milk at refrigerator temperature.
5. Immerse the cappuccino maker in the milk
container (fig. 14). Take care not to immerse
the raised line on the cappuccino maker
(shown by the arrow in fig. 14).
6. Press the
button. Steam is discharged
from the cappuccino maker, giving the milk a
creamy frothy appearance.
•
NB! To obtain a creamier froth, immerse
the cappuccino maker in the milk and rotate the
container with slow upward movements. You
should not deliver steam for more than 3 minutes
at a time.
32
7. When the required froth is obtained, interrupt
steam delivery by pressing the
button.
HEATING WATER
Important! Danger of burns. Never leave
the machine unsupervised while delivering hot
water. Stop delivery of hot water as described
below when the cup is full. The hot water spout
becomes hot while water is being delivered and
must be held by the handle only.
1. Place a container under the spout (as close as
possible to avoid splashes).
2. Press the
button. The
light comes on.
3. Press the
button (fig. 3), then interrupt
by pressing the same button again or wait
until the customised quantity has been delivered.
Important! Danger of burns
Stop steam delivery before removing the container with the frothed milk to avoid burns caused by
splashes of boiling milk.
8. Add the milk froth to the coffee prepared previously. The cappuccino is ready. Sweeten to
taste and, if desired, sprinkle the froth with a
little cocoa powder.
Cleaning the cappuccino maker
after use
Clean the cappuccino maker each time you use it
to avoid the build-up of milk residues or blockages.
Important: You should not deliver hot
water for more than 3 minutes at a time.
