This feature is not suitable to keep warm the
milk froth and other drinks like hot chocolate.
To get the best results, take the milk out of the refrigerator immediately before pouring it into the container.
If you want a rich milky froth, first run the cold
froth cycle and then a hot froth cycle.
We recommended using full fat milk for all frothed milk beverages, as it gives a richer froth.
If the appliance has been left connected to the
power outlet for a long time after use, you must
press the start button twice to turn it on and then
start a cycle.
Allow the appliance to cool down after using a
hot cycle; do not use it immediately for a second
cycle. Wait a few minutes between cycles.
After a cold froth cycle, you can immediately
start a new heating or frothing cycle.
Always pull the power plug out of the wall outlet
and wait for its motor to stop completely before
cleaning the appliance.
To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not clean
the base or power cord with water, and never immerse them in water.
The container, whisks and lid can be cleaned
with hot water and a mild detergent, or in the dishwasher.
Take care to dry all parts thoroughly before using
them again.
The heating base can be cleaned with a soft
damp cloth which has been dipped in a small
amount of detergent. Never immerse it in water
or clean it in a dishwasher.
Do not use abrasive or aggressive detergents.
