    Hi TheITBod, 

    It's great to see you enthusiastic about the frother! Like myself and my colleagues, we've all been high-five-ing at the sheer joy it brings. Anyway, to answer your question, here are four sequenced photos of the frother in action, or should I say in milk  ;)

    Oh what a joy! I was starting to think the frother was entirely a fabrication but I am glad to see it in action - much appreciated, @MSE_Becky

    And may I say, what a beautiful machine...I hope you cleaned it properly after use...last thing you want is milk protein rotting on your whisk tip and spreading bacteria to your future brews.

    Thanks, TheITBod! I've made sure to dip it in the pool before I've let it out to play :)

    Better to be on the safe side in frothy town.

    In 1993, I bought a round wooden chopping board for £1.  I still use it most days.  Humdinger x

    Sounds like a good bargain...have you got a picture of the board? if not, can you take one and make it choppy?

    Not a day goes by I don't think about this frother.

    Hoping you're keeping it sanitised if it's communally used in the MSE office...there's a bug about atm, @MSE_Becky - can't be too careful.

    I've just spent 99p on 20 custom printed iron-on clothes labels on a certain online auction site that "must not be named". Factoring in the cost of the blank labels, an envelope and especially postage, even second class, I can't see how they make any profit.

    In the late 90s I spent £1 on a ZX80 (without a box, but with leads) at a car boot sale.  Tested it on getting home and it worked fine.  Couple of years later put it up on ebay and was surprised to get £200 for it!  It was bought by a retro shop who I think boxed it with a manual and sold it on.  Probably could have got more but was well chuffed.  Cool story bro.
