Nespresso Frother burnt spot - how to avoid

Avoiding a burnt spot in the frotherBecause the frother impellar is magnetic, it will stick to anywhere on the bottom of the frother. It will even stick to the bottom if it is not on the little pillar that it should spin on.If you insert the impellar into the milk after it is filled, it is very easy to think you have put it in the right place (because it seems to stick to the bottom). If it is not on the pillar it will not actually do its job of spinning (it needs to do this to create the "frothing", but also it is needed to circulate the milk to prevent a "hot spot" in the milk - burning occurs if the milk is not circulated).So . . . always check the impellar is correctly fitted - or burnt milk will be a problem

What are the parts of the central ''spinner'' of a milk frother?


There are no moving parts in the frother other than the whisk assembly. The whisk assembly is spun magnetically. I am not sure if it is possible to have the magnet in the whisk assembly in the wrong orientation, but if so, be sure that it is reassembled with the magnet side down. Additionally, if I haven't removed the whisk in a while (I normally just immediately rinse and wipe the interior with a cloth) then the metal stem can build up with milk solids... and cause the whish to "stick"... the magnetic force is not exceptionally strong and it could be that the plastic assembly is "sticking" on the metal post... pull off the whisk and give the post a good wiping with a wet cloth to remove any possible residue.

the milk frother has stopped rotating.....the milk heats but the frother doesnt rotate hence no froth.... am in india,mmbai so dont know where i can fix it !


The solution to rotation issues with the frother have been soved finally by myself after reading all the suggestion. The fix is simple... Your attachments have been magnitised and need to be demagnetized. It works a beauty. Run a magnet around the metal rings. Hint. Never leave them on the the frother when not being used.

dishwasher very noisy as it goes through it cycle. think its the water pump? sounds like bearings or impeller rubbing off the housing? not as noisy when the machine is cycling empty?


Could be bearings or something caught inside the impellar. If you take the wash arms off and run a cycle with water, it will "sometimes" blow out anything in the impellar. Undercounter machines are usually problematic - recommend avoiding them when possible.

Burnt Milk at Bottom of Aeroccino


Try this - make a paste from bicarbonate of soda and water and let it
sit in the bottom of the frother for ten minutes or so. Then use a sponge
to clean off the milk stain and rinse and dry thoroughly. To prevent it from
recurring, rinse and dry the inside after each use and don't get the base
of the frother wet.
