Cleaning the interior 

  • Once you have done frothing, you will notice the attached whisks and the walls have congeals on them. To remove those congeals, do this: 
  • Remove the carafe jug from the unit. You don’t need to carry the base and remember to unplug your unit from the power source.
  • Warm some water and fill the interior. Doing this helps soak the congeals and remove 70% of the milk leftovers.
  • Haul the contaminated water and fill in the carafe with another warm water but this time use a soft sponge or your finger to remove any leftover gently. Never use abrasive items to clean your carafe.
  • You can repeat this again and again until your carafe is clean.

When cleaning the exterior parts of your unit, especially the base, make sure to be very careful. A damp cloth will do a decent job. Use it to wipe stains and afterwards use a clean, dry cloth to dry your unit. You can even rub olive oil on the exterior part so as to keep it sparkling.

Safety Precautions

  • Never immerse the motor inside a bowl filled with water.
  • Never soak warm water inside the carafe for more than 10 minutes.
  • Make sure no liquid touches any of the functions, not even the spurted liquid.
  • Always clean your unit before its temperature has abated.
  • Make sure that you save it in a cool and open space.
  • Always contact the manufacturer when you begin to have an issue with the unit. The manufacturer will absolutely help you. 
  • Try all that you can to stop spills while frothing.

Self-proclaimed coffee drinker. I would, on a typical day, start my day by grinding my coffee with a manual grinder and use a French Press as a starter (2 cups), then a pour-over in the afternoon (4 cups). I had my fair share as a barista but I prefer to drink it, not serve it.
