I am crazy about my brand new aerolatte. How to describe it...hmmm...a teeny tiny magical little wand...batteries came with mine. It froths milk...and I have been using 1% for this...into high firm frothy creamy peaks!!! It is truly a miracle machine!!! The foam is so thick that I have to spoon it on top of my coffee. Then it just stays there in lovely peaks...waiting for a dusting of healthy shaved dark chocolate...mmmm...I have had my aerolatte for a few days now...and I am not the least bit tired of using it. It is such a tiny clever little kitchen appliance...mine came with a stand and it sits nicely on the counter next to the coffee pot.
