Quality of Use
The appliance works with any milk choices and even non-dairy variants (soy, coconut, almond, etc.). It serves to heat and foam milk, as well as froth cold milk for iced drinks.
The device is fully automatic and operates with one touch button. The frothing is carried out quickly, within two minutes.
Used for making foam, the Verismo is capable of frothing 5 ounces of milk. Pour milk in a jug and place a wire whisk on the end of the frothing assembly. Press the button on the device for one second to create a hot froth. Hold the button for three seconds to make a cold foam. Wait until the button turns blue.
Used for steaming, the machine can heat 8.5 ounces of milk for your beverage. All liquid indication levels are marked inside the jug. To heat milk, pour it in the jug and remove the wire whisk from the frothing assembly.
The device is easy to clean. Wipe the exterior parts of the frothing cup and handwash it inside with a soft cloth. After use, clean the lid and metal coil with warm water because milk residue may prevent the whisk from rotating properly and may affect milk temperature and foam quality. When cleaning, don’t submerge the appliance into water. Just rinse and wipe it. The jug cannot be cleaned in the dishwasher, but its parts are pretty safe.
