I tried the Ozeri Deluxe Milk Frother, and Pitcher out and I was so amazed by the amount of froth, that came from the Ozeri Milk Frother. I would highly suggest using a small amount of milk in the stainless steel pitcher, because the milk frother really does produce a high volume of froth, from just using a small amount of milk, and that can be fat free, skim or regular milk and then you only have to wait 10 seconds while 15,000 RPMs go to work making a nice cup of delicious froth, for cappuccinos, hot cocoa or other beverages. I also can use it for making mayonnaise, or salad dressings and other sauces. It has a button on top of the handle that you can push in and stays on and continues to run, while it mixes and froths.It also has a stand with it as well, and it comes with a extra whisk. It is a very high quality item from the Ozeri family ,it's a beautiful piece to have on hand to use to make those delicious cappuccinos, hot chocolates even more delicious. Instead of paying those name brand places a arm and leg for those great frappes and Iced Mocha's I can do them at home now, and the Ozeri Deluxe Milk Frother and Pitcher, even looks great displayed. So I don't have to worry about hiding it or storing it, when I am done using it.It comes with batteries as well they take 2 AA's. I think the Ozeri Deluxe Milk Frother and Pitcher, are a great thing to have on hand and would make a awesome present to anyone.
