Subminimal NanoFoamer

Write a Review

The Subminimal NanoFoamer is a milk frothing device that enables you to make cafe quality microfoam milk at home, in the office or travelling.

Ever notice that cheap milk "froathers" only ever seem to add a whole lot of dry, stiff foam with big bubbles that doesn't mix in with your coffee? The difference is in the technique used to generate the foam. Microfoam is frothed milk with bubbles so small that they cannot be seen by the naked eye and give it that shimmering, liquid velvety finish that blends in with the coffee crema and can be used to make latte art. The NanoFoamer enables you to create microfoam with pre-heated milk in a milk jug.

The NanoFoamer has three different screen sizes for different microfoam types: ordinary, fine and superfine. The NanoFoamer churns your pre-heated milk (65°C or close to it is ideal) for about 15 seconds. Starting in the middle to incorporate the air into the milk, move to the side to create the microfoam. Then pour your beautiful velvety microfoam over espresso and enjoy your cafe-esque latte or cappuccino as you intend it wherever you are.

The NanoFoamer contains the following:

  • NanoFoamer wand
  • Sheathe
  • 3x screens

*The NanoFoamer requires AA batteries (sold separately)

    Works exactly as advertised. An ideal unit for creating microfoam as good as that produced by some of the best steam wands I have used, including commercial machines.
    The only downside is the high pressure required to operate the switch. However, this can easily be overcome with suitable modification.

    Great idea, not so good implementation

    The key part of this product is a simple yet innovative idea of enabling a frothing wand to produce micro foam using simple mesh
    filterss. It's a great idea for sure and it is definitely capable to produce what is promised.

    It looks great from far but the build is poor, finishing is not impressive. I expected it to be a bit better built than Ikea frothers.

    The power button is hard to keep pressed on for about a minute (it takes more than 20s unlike as advertised). However, the button gets softer and thumbs get stronger after few days of use.

    It takes some time to learn generating good results with this. I found it easier with the fine mesh.

    The filter screens get clogged quite easily even with immediate rinsing after use. It is not easy to clean the screens.

    Finally, the service and support from Dibartoli is flawless as usual.
