Ease of Use/Performance: 4/5
How much I enjoy 5/5
The Aerocinno Plus milk frother from Nespresso is a great companion to the Nespresso single serve espresso machine for great espresso based drinks. The Aerocinno Plus is an easy to use and simple cleanup machine for frothing with a separate pitcher and base that has the electric cord.
Frothers come in two general styles with a heating unit as part of the pitcher or a simple whisk to froth the milk that has been heated prior to frothing. The Aerocinno Plus is a full frother that heats the milk as well as froths but you can also simply heat up milk without frothing.
The Aerocinno Plus has a base with a quick connect to the bottom of the pitcher that has the heating element and magnetic connected frother inside. The pitcher is a smooth nonstick surface inside with a small dent that fits the frother or heating whisks while the plastic lid that fits well on the pitcher stores the other disc.
The Aerocinno Plus has indicators for milk levels inside for both the froth and heat settings which are selected using the front power button. The frother and heating whisks simply pull off and on with simple magnetics that hold them in place on the lid and inside the pitcher.
The Aerocinno Plus has a single control for both heating and frothing with a simple push of the front button turning on the heater and the frother. If you hold the front button down for several seconds the frother will turn on and indicate a blue light instead of red and only froth the milk without heating it.
The frother takes about a minute to heat and froth milk which gets up to about 150 degrees Fahrenheit for a decent enough temperature even if the ideal for cappuccino and lattes is 160 degrees. To simply heat milk you use the smaller paddle bladed whisk while the round whisk with the spring is for frothing milk which does a great job.

The frother can almost double the milk when frothed but you still get milk in the pitcher for your drink but not just espresso based drinks. The frother can be used with espresso for latte and cappuccino drinks but I have had hot chocolate with frothed milk for that extra special touch.
The Aerocinno Plus is a fast frother and can be used easily in a sale or craft show for quickly making single drinks like lattes and cappuccinos. The only issue I would have is repeated use in a noncommercial appliance that might cause the frother to become overused too quickly if you make drink after drink.
Using this for a show or sale as a commercial machine may be asking a bit much but for smaller events the machine would probably be no problem as long as you did not have to use it constantly. A little cooling off period between drinks would be best but the Aerocinno Plus would probably work well for a smaller event or venue.
I highly recommend the Aerocinno Plus as a great frother for espresso drinks and more and it would work well for smaller venues or shows for individual drinks.
