Check out our new Quick Start Guide for tips, tricks, videos, and links.

Here are some links and info to help you get started.

Do
Make sure you have well charged batteries for best resuts
Slowly warm your milk to 55-65°C (130°F- 150°F) for optimum sweetness and the best texture.
Use a narrow jug and ensure you have at least 40mm (1.5”) depth in the milk.
Start with the fine NanoScreen if it’s your first time, it’s a little bit easier.
Keep a steady hand and make very tiny movements and observe the reaction of the milk.
Start in the middle to aerate the milk in just 3-10 seconds. Listen to the gushing sound which means big bubbles are created.
Very slowly move towards the edge of the jug, make sure the NanoScreen is deep inside the milk and not near the surface. Now you no longer hear the gushing sound. Over time, the milk gets quieter and quieter as it is all turned into microfoam. Hold this position for 15 or until you feel the microfoam is homogenous.
Find the perfect position to keep a silent vortex in the milk. This pulls all the surface bubbles down.
A couple of practice attempts and a steady hand is all it takes.

Don’t
Don’t use cold milk if trying to create microfoam for latte art, it will end up too thick.
Don’t overheat the milk, it will taste burned and can leave marks in your jug.
Don’t start with too little milk, it is more challenging as big bubbles can easily form
Don’t raise the impeller too high inside the milk
Don’t move the NanoFoamer aggressively around inside the milk as you risk creating big bubbles.

Practice
You can practice with soap and water and get a similar texture to microfoamed milk. Find out how by registering for the master class.
