Burnt Milk at Bottom of Aeroccino

There is a spot on my aeroccino where the milk keeps burning...for a while I was able to remove the burnt stuff (with some work) but now it's like the spot is permanent and nothing will remove it. Help please????!!

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.

My solution: after "burning milk", empty the aeroccino and first, rinse shortly but well with running hot water. Then fill until the higher level mark with cold water, place the bigger propeller and let it working the same way you prepare milk. Wait until the water is hot. If desired, repeat more times. Burnt milk gets soft and even very old rests you can remove with a sponge very easily.

After each use, don\'t just rinse. If you feel the bottom there is an almost invisible layer of milk scum on the bottom. If you don\'t remove this each time, it burns the next time and leaves the brown/black residue. You can use your fingers to rub the scum off each time, but it is easier to use a bottle brush to brush the bottom with each rinse. If you get rid of the scum each time, you won\'t ever see that burned stuff again!

Advice from Nespresso themselves for this issue was to run a 'deep clean' which can be done as follows:

1. Half fill the frother with cold water and a drop of washing up liquid with the whisk attachment in place.
2. Press and hold the button until it turns blue - important that you do a cold cycle - not hot - to avoid the mark getting further burnt into the frother.
3. Run twice more back to back (as soon as the cycle finishes run it again).
4. Leave the frother to stand for an hour with the solution still in place.
5. Wipe with non-abrasive cloth.

This *didn't* work for me but I think I'd burnt the milk on so many hot cycles its beyond help. If I can find the proof of purchase they will swap the Aerocinno free of charge. Great service.

A stitch in time saves nine.
Watch the didn't work for about 15 seconds. When the milk foams up to the desired level, pick up the for and pour the milk into your cup.

Save time cleaning and enjoy your latte earlier!

Spray with mr muscle oven cleaner. Leave for a few hours, then thoroughly rinse. Removes the burnt milk without scratching the Teflon finish.

Frother overflows even though I add correct amount of milk, or even less than called for


There are two milk amount markings in the Aeroccino - one (less) for use with the wire whisk attached, and one (more) for use when the wire whisk is detached. I had the same problem when I first used the Aeroccino, but with the correct amount of milk you shouldn't have the problem.
I hope this helps, Carole.

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

Aeroccino frother won't turn back on after we get some froth and still more milk in container.. takes a long time to be able to activate again.. using Almond milk could be the problem any suggeest


My Nespresso Aeroccino often would not heat or froth multiple times after one use. I called Nespresso, they have excellent customer service, and was told to rise the inside (careful not to get the outside button or electric elements wet) of the Aeroccino with cold water a few times and to retry. Works like a charm!
The customer service is the best I have encountered in a long while, give them a call, it will make your day they are so pleasant and helpful!

Doesn't heat completely and light blinks


This is either a problem with the thermostat that lives just under the surface of the bottom of the aeroccino jug and is a technical problem that can only be resolved (replaced) by returning it to Nespresso OR it is related to a fine layer of burnt milk that builds over successive use that builds and holds the heat the element produces 'tricking' the thermostat into thinking the milk itself has heated to the desired temperature, not just the burnt layer. Clean the bottom of the jug, regularly with a non scratch scourer and use a mild detergent as well.

Aeroccino deosn't make froth


Our aeroccino worked fine for 2 years and suddenly it didn't made foam anymore. We tried the "inverting trick" without much success. We contacted Nespresso and they suggested switching from regular fresh milk (we used 2%) to UHT milk (harder to find in US) and to use it cold and freshly opened. So we tried that and it works.
Hope this solution works for you too

Nespresso Aeroccino milk scum hard to remove


I have used a baby bottle brush. It is not easy to clean, and the cooked milk does build up, and the scum build up will cause the frother not to move as fast compared to when it is clean.

It would seem that I was not putting sufficient milk into the aeroccino. I amm putting more in now and monitoring the situation. So far ,so good!

I have an Nespresso Aeroccino that will not make froth


Sorry, but it looks as though you have the classic Aeroccino-problem. Nespresso states that leaving the Aeroccino on its base while it is plugged-in to the wall, will cause it to short-circuit (because there is no off-switch on the base, it is continually feeding full power to the frother), and the result is that it makes only warm milk. Replacement is the only solution...I hope you are still under warranty.
