anyone have any experience with these?  I have a Gaggia coffee I got used
and have used about daily since christmas.  in the last day or so I am
having problems with my milk steamer/frother.  I am using the same milk I
always have and fill my pitcher to the same level. but what used to be
good foam for a dry capp. is gone now it looks more like soap bubbles and
it fills up and overflows which it never did before
any ideas?

Sounds like steaming technique error. Specifically not having the tip deep
enough which results in interjecting too much air.

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment

Sound like your getting better at foaming.

To state the problem:
   1. "used to be good foam for a dry capp.
   2. is gone now
   3. looks more like soap bubbles
   4. fills up and overflows which it never did before"
LIFO:
     4.- If it just fills up- [the deep- injected steam condenses to
additional liquid volume, adds to the milk volume. Only heats milk and adds
volume.]
     3.- No micro foam, just big bubbles- [the steam being injected too dee=
p
into the milk= bigger vortices create the bigger bubbles]
     2.- [The wand is too deep to create vortex to draw in air and mix
rapidly to make foam]
     1.- [Withdraw wand to just below surface of milk. Experiment to create
best micro foam. Microfoam is created by mini vortices' from steam injectio=
n
at surface drawing micro air streams into liquid and mixing rapidly.]
