Question about Saeco Incanto Rondo Fully Automatic Coffee Maker Black Espresso Machine
What am I doing wrong? I've had the machine for about 6 months and it made great foam but for some reason this past week, all it does is heat up the milk making it scalding hot and then it sprays it everywhere. I've descaled and cleaned the machine but still it doesn't foam like it did. Any suggestions?
The stainless steel cover has a very small hole near the top. The hole allows a venturi action - meaning air molecules are entrained with the steam flow to increase the affect. Milk will clog the hole, but warm water and a guitar string, cheese wire, even a staple - something thin - will work to clean it out.
After frothing either clean the entire stainless steel piece or at least occlude the end at the same time as shooting through some steam. I usually use a kitchen sponge with the abrasive pad attached. The pad helps insulate the heat and provides the necessary resistance to force any milk out the small hole.
Yes, I hate living with this also. In fact I am considering machining a different steam tube assembly.

Sounds like there is something wrong with your frother. Make sure there is no milk internally in it. A good cleaning agent for a milk frother is Rinza® Milk Frother Cleaner. Hope this helps! johnny
