Milk Frother

I just purchased a frother from my home town Meijer store for mixing my juice. Runs on 2 AA batteries, but there where no instructions on how to install them! There was no door to remove or arrows any where to show how to open the unit, to intall them you simply( YANK) and I do mean yank the cover off the end.

I must say that the Chinese piss me off to no end, if your going to sell products in a world wide market please make sure to include proper instructions.

Rant over!!

Before I bought a milk frother I used a cheap drimmel drill from harbor freight. I would cut off one end of a plastic cuetip then slide it through the attaching cap. On the other end I cut the cuetip so that it had 4 blades. Waalah! With the drimmel drill I was mixing my juice at 3000rpms. Cheapest and best frother I had. When I’m lazy and making large batches of juice I always use the drimmel. Quick easy changes of the quetips!

What size bottle will that fit in? Or do you use a beaker?

You can use a beaker but just be careful. I mix in either a 100 ml plastic bottle or 250ml plastic bottle. After that into my 30ml bottles for storage.

Used my new frother this morning in a class beaker from Walmart and it worked like a charm, wished it had more power but it will do.
I started this thread to vent on stupid Chinese for not having instructions on how to put in the batteries.

Maybe you should have called it Stupid Chinese instead of Milk Frother :grinning:

My milk frother works ok. Lacking power. But it does work. The dremel idea is great.

I’d use a small paint mixer or a dremel tool with some sort of attachment :smile:
