Tips & More

Capresso froth PRO Recipe Tips

  • Always finely grate or shave the chocolate before adding it to the frothing pitcher. We recommend using a rotary grater, cheese grater or vegetable peeler. Do not add large chunks of chocolate to the frothing pitcher.
  • If a loud noise occurs after you add ingredients while making a warm or hot beverage, press the illuminated button to turn the machine off, or lift the pitcher from base. Allow a few seconds for the ingredients to melt, and then press the Warm or Hot button again. The ingredients might have been stuck on or around the heating disk.
  • Always follow the measurement marks inside the pitcher.
  • Never froth more than 8 ounces of milk at one time or milk may overflow out of the pitcher. Remember that the volume of milk increases with frothing.
  • Capresso froth PRO can froth any type of milk, including soy, almond, skim, 2% and more. Some milk product froth better than others. Fresh skim milk provides the largest amount of froth. Organic milk and non-dairy milks will not produce the same quality of froth as non-organic milk.
