Now that I've had it for a few days here's some impressions of this machine. This machine holds a lot of milk (2 cups = 16oz = 500ml) at one time . The biggest downfall to my Aerocinno is that I'd have to run 2 to get the same amount of milk heated (or run 1 twice) thank god for eBay and buying a few used cheaply after my Aerocinno plus kicked the bucket after a year and a bit. The Breville is a lot louder (due to the cooling fan running) so the Aerocinno wins on that count. It might seem that it takes longer to heat the milk with the Breville but it's heating up more milk and I can control the temp of the milk on the Breville as to on the Aerocinno it's done when it's done. So the Breville wins on that account unless you use 2 Aerocinno's at the same time to heat up the milk, but still I love the temp control on the Breville. Now tothe clean up, and here's where the Breville really shines. Rinse out the Breville milk container, soapy wand the inside and clean the mixer and your done, or if you can't be bothered you can put it in the dishwasher. The Aerocinno is a whole different ball game. First you rinse. Then look for the burnt milk at the bottom (which there always seems to be), clean the mixer (easy) then try and clean out the burnt milk (hard). For me the Breville is really the next evolution of the automatic milk frother. Nespresso and Starbucks would be better servicing their customers by selling this great machine. Don't feel too bad for the Aerocinno's that I own, they will be making it down to my mom's nespresso machine to join her Aerocinno plus for when my sister and her husband and kids wake up for morning Latte's and espresso's. They need to have 3 Aerocinno's going at the same time!
As to my previous post, you can see that the customer service is up to the nespresso standards that we like to have. So if you need a milk frother, keep Breville in mind.
