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.

      Hi, Eithne. First, unplug your machine. Then, slide your thumb under one side of the disk and gently pull up. The disk should snap out of place. Sometimes during first use the disk seems hard to pull out, but just tug on it and it should pull out.

    I am starting to get inconsistent performance from my frothPro: the frothing disc won’t start without being “kick started” with a finger, the disc speed fluctuates significantly through out the cycle, and the cycle sometimes ends before the milk is hot. Note: the spindle on the bottom of the frothing cup and the disc are clean.

    Any suggestions?
