The Aerolatte was one of the first milk frothers that I owned. I bought my first one nearly 20 years ago, and bought my second one nearly 10 years ago. I've owned nearly ten different frother brands over the years, yet I only use the Aerolatte one, mainly because it does the job. I still use it today and it has become my go-to frother. It can be used for any liquids for blending or frothing, but I only use it for frothing milk/cream, and it works on cold or hot milk. Also, mine has a stand and I keep it displayed near my coffee maker to use anytime. It runs on AA batteries and I like to use my rechargeable batteries to save money. The bottom line is that this tool is simple to use, easy to clean, compact and does it's job.
