Frothing of Milk

Hello,
I am having a problem with my Breville machine. It is not frothing very well at all. I think it is because the whisk part may be blocked. What is the best way to clean it?

    I have the same problem. I've only used my machine for two months. I've cleaned it daily and two days ago I did the decalcifying process, as recommended in the manual. I have the same results. There's also an odd smell coming from it. Smells electrical, maybe a little like plastic burning.

I simply use a needle on mine. I don't believe the upper section gets blocked unless you have hard water. Then you will have to go with a descaler solution.

Problem with frothing unit. I bought my Die-Cast


It probably has a line clogged. It could be from backed up milk, but also could be the water you're using. Those things are finicky about have filtered water, especially because when the water heats up it can deposit calcium etc. onto the inner water lines. Only use store bought filtered water.

The steam wand is bubbling the milk, not frothing


THere is a little black tube inside - make sure its pushed out enough - about 1/16 an inch from the bottom. And you may have to clean it out. Happens to us too and after I do the above it works

Aeroccino Overflows


As a Nespresso demonstrator I've had this question many times- use the black plastic wand for light foam- can use to max line. Using the wire whisk wand for heavy, cappacino foam and fill only to bottom line. This wand uses more aeration to achieve foam density- causing more pressure and your leaks. The wand stored inside the lid doesn't have anything to do with function of the aerrocino.

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.

Steam not frothing milk


Hi,

Have you decalcify the machine, the boiler does not heat up if there is calcium in it.
