We have one of those electric milk frothers for the pod coffee machines. It is a nightmare to keep clean. The milk always burns and sticks to one spot each time we use it and I struggle to get it clean. Does anyone have any tips on how to stop/prevent this from happening or how to best clean the machine each time?

Ask your question

  • Clean after each use or you can soak in dishwashing liquid till the next use.



  • I regularly (well I try regularly) use just water in the frother. I think this cleans it out well and helps it keep from blocking up



  • I see this is a very old post but i found some good tips on her answers, thanks!



  • Clean immediately after use as it is easy at this stage.



  • Warm water and a scratch free cloth.



  • Sit it in a jug or container filled with boiling water, and use a thick cloth with no detergent to wipe it clean on a daily or weekly basis.



  • yeah you have to clean those after every use. it is a pain but that’s what you gotta do! lol



  • I clean mine every time I use it, clean it while it’s on.



  • Regularly! is the best answer to this question, you should wipe down the want each time you use it, alternatively leave it to soak in a cup of water for a few hours then hit it with some steel wool. I have nearly fired many baristas for failing to wipe down the milk wand!



  • Hi there you should clean it after every time you use it or the next time burns the milk left from the last time if you know what I mean. Usually just hot water and a scourer that DOESN’T scratch. You say it’s worse on one side? Maybe you have already scratched it ? Hope this helps !!



  • Clean wet cloth for the outside (hot) and there is a specific brush you can buy to clean up inside it.



  • You need to wipe with a damp cloth each time immediately after each frothing the same as a professional barista



  • you have to clean it straight after you use it



  • Make sure you clean it straight away after use! BEFORE you have your coffee! :)



  • I wash mine straight after use. I use hot soapy water and a dish brush to get the built of milk from the bottom. Mine seems to get built of of milk and burn in the one spot too. It drives me crazy but l would be lost without my milk frother. A wonderful invention.
