Topic: Bodum Frother (was No more monkey butts - was No good foam) (3 msgs / 74 lines)
1) From: Irene and Lubos Palounek
John, we, too, have the Bodum Frother, bought on good sale from Target. Its
MAX line is at less than 8.5 (US) fluid ounces of fluid milk, and it has
plenty of space above that line for foaming.  Have you tried to use it with
hot milk to micro-foam it?  We have not, yet.
First, I need to find out: how is the CSA level affected by trying / using a
gadget like that? :-)
Cheers, Lubos
This, of course, refers to your contribution, see below:
"Several years ago my daughter who gives great gifts, gave me a Bodum
Frother. The Bodum frother looks almost like a French Press. At first look I
thought she had picked up a cheap press, but written on the side of the
pitcher in six languages (and diagram) are instructions for placing warm
milk into the frother and then churning it up and down until it reaches the
right consistency.  It actually works - with skim milk, whole milk, cream,
soy milk, goats milk. Probably works with water if you can churn fast
enough."

First let me say that I keep it because it was a gift, and it is
considered a museum piece and I would never admit to having used it :O)
It is a LOT of hassle to use, first you have to heat the milk, then
froth it, then pour into the cup. The instructions tell you that you can
place it directly on the heating element - but I've either heated the
milk in something else or used the microwave. We used skim milk in it
when we did use it and it made a very nice microfoam.- but you can take
it to almost whipped cream consistency if you stroke fast enough and
long enough.  If you try it, make sure the top is rotated so the pouring
spout is covered or you're in for some major cleanup. You can rotate the
top to open the spout and pour without having to remove the baffle and
shaft.
One of the things it does well is flavored cream. When they became
popular back in the 90's, we could use a squirt of syrup in it and
produce the same effect.
Today it sits on the shelf with a couple of old grinders, the Cona, and
some old steaming pitchers. It really does look like a museum.
