Question about Gaggia Baby Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Do not get froth on milk using.

Everything seems to be working fine except now when steaming the milk, the milk will splash up out of the container and no froth forms on the surface. I took apart the steam nozzle and cleaned it but problem continues. The manual indicates that if there isn't enough froth that the steam nozzle is clogged or air intake hole is clogged. I didn't see any air intake hole on the steam nozzle and it doesn't show one on the shematic for the steam nozzle. What's up?

Froth


If you are getting steam out of the wand I suggest you practice and work ha and to learn how to froth up the milk. The machine does not froth up, it is the operator who does. You basically need to keep the wand just below the milk level and keep moving very slowly up and down always trying to stay below the milk level. If the container is wide you may need to swirl as you moving.

I have just bought a delonghi ec220cd coffee maker - a replacement for the delonghi ec270 which started to leak badly. However, the milk doesn't seem to want to froth - just wet and may as well just pour...


Try removing the plastic steaming sleeve and just use the stainless pipe. Keep the pipe just below the surface to make the ffroth, then go lower to heat the milk to a max of 165F.

Frothing attachment coming off from pressure


Check the holes in the attachment they might be blocked and the pressure of the steam is blowing it off.

Frothing


You should try to hold the steam end half a centimeter lower the top surface of the milk and try to have it with a slight angle in the pot with milk and near to side of the milk pot about 1 centimeter. If the steam end goes very near to the top surface of milk and for seconds goes above and then back into milk this can create the bigger bubles foam milk.. So with a very steady hand you can create very nice smooth foam. Also remeber that should stop heating anymore the milk after 72 degrees selcius the point at which you can not leave your hand out on the pot for more one second this point you must stop. After the 72 to 75 degress you could burn the milk protein and any foam already created will desapear just like that.
Try also in youtube "milk frothing" and you find many videos on how to do it.
Good luck.

Milk doesn't get much volume . My son works with one all the time and thinks their might be a regulator on this unit?. The steam comes out alright but maybe not as strong to volume. The milk temp gets hot...


You should keep the end tip of the steam pipe always just below the surface of the milk. As the milk rise try to lower the milk pot. A slow move up and down but always near the surface can make better froth. In youtube their many videos on how to make froth

EAM3500S will not froth milk ?


First, check to see if it will pump out steam without a ton of water. If it doesn't, don't use it.

Now, skim milk is terrible for it, the bubbles are too dry and flavorless. Use 2% milk or half-and-half. It should be cold (very cold). I put mine in the freezer in a steel frothing container for 5-10 minutes before use. Just barely submerge the wand (about .25") and turn on the pressure. It should sound like tearing paper (not like blowing bubbles through a straw). Do this until volume increases to around double (if you have a frothing thermometer, it should be around 100 degrees F). Now submerge the wand farther and tilt the cup to create swirling (this is called stretching & sweetens the milk). This should be done until the temperature is around 140-160 degrees F. Done.

If your machine is no good for steam, there's another way: Put milk into a steel cooking pot (I use a saucier for large groups) and put it in the freezer. When very cold (ice forming) put on stove. Whisk briskly while heating up on medium-high. It will create fine foam & stretch the milk at the same time. The bubbles will start big, but become finer as time goes by. I test by stocking my finger in & going until it feels nearly scalding & remove from heat. Just use a ladle for he milk & a spoon for the foam.

New Rancilio Silva - steamed milk not perfect


please relay on your experience realizing that you now have new steam pipe(with different holes in the end of it and different pressure)
you will need to get use to them and get maximum quality of that steam pipe.
my advice:
  1. every time hold your hand in the bottom of milk container, so that you will prevent overheating which often gives the result you mentioned.
  2. every time you use cold milk.

Steam and froth malfunction


The milk can not be room temperature.  It needs to be cool, does not have to be fridge temperature but can not be warmer than room temperature
