Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasant surprise! So I bought this little guy to practice latte art in the privacy of my home and to my surprise it really delivers! It's not as powerful as a wand attached to a professional machine of course, but it's incredibly easy to get microfoam with this steamer! It's all stainless steel so it's easy to clean plus it's incredibly durable! Very happy with my purchase! I've been recommending it to all my friends!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Quality, Great if you don't have a steamer! I have a portable espresso maker. Obviously this comes with no steamer attachment. I actually prefer this setup with the Bellman for home use. It takes far less time to preheat my handheld espresso maker (Portapresso) and do the milk on the stove top compared to a full-sized home machine. The build quality is good. Nothing seems too flimsy and the device has a good heavy weight to it. I've heard some people complain about the device getting too hot. You certainly need to be careful, but I haven't had issues thus far. Don't use absolute high heat! Medium-high is fine and it will take 10-12 minutes to build sufficient pressure. The Bellman seems a bit small on the stove top. That's why you have to be careful about high heat creeping up onto the pieces you'll be putting your hands on. Right before you begin steaming milk open the steam valve slightly to let a constant line of pressure out. Then begin steaming. The outwards pressure will keep the inside lines free of milk. Take care of the Bellman and it will take care of you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I JUST received this in the mail two yrs ago and now that we have a SNOW day, I don't have to go to work - sooooo - I had my first attempt at making a latte. I didn't blow up the kitchen or burn myself, so that's a step in the right direction. I have been wanting to buy one of these things for AGES - so when I saw it here at this website, I couldn't resist. Each time I plunk down $5 for a latte around here, I think GOSH -I'd really better invest in a milk steamer. The directions were simple and to the point. Everything worked as directed. It was my first time and I worried about splattering the milk everywhere, so went a little too deep with the nozzle, thereby making more frother than steamed milk I think. Can't wait to try it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect companion to wandless espresso machines I've been using the Bellman Stovetop Milk Steamer for the past few weeks, and it's been fun. I got it because my espresso machine doesn't have a steam wand, so this would work well for people with moka pots as well. It is simple to use and, equally importantly, to clean. Add water to the line inside, put it together like in the instructions, put it on heat and wait. It's going to be 10 minutes or more, so plan ahead! I've gotten my best, and quickest, results by waiting till it gets loud and steam starts coming out of the valve on the handle. I use a 20 oz (~591 ml) pitcher and always use a thermometer. Right when you're done steaming, be sure to use a wet cloth to get the dried milk off the steam wand, and then open up the valve again to get any milk out. Watch plenty of YouTube videos on steaming (there are even some specific to this device) and on pouring. Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I've been looking for! I've had hand held "frothers" and electric "frothers" but the first required I heat the milk on the stove or in the microwave and the second never got the milk hot enough. This little device is small, handsome, no nonsense and does a beautiful job of making authentic piping HOT steamed milk for either a latte or cappuccino. I haven't found cleaning it difficult and it makes plenty of steam with solid pressure. A fantastic product at a fair price, I just bought one for my mom. Bravo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not fancy, works great! I have plowed through so many big fancy (expensive) electric cappuccino makers, that all break down mechanically at some point, and now have gone back to the simplest mechanism possible for steaming milk.  This stovetop steamer takes a while to heat up (20-30 minutes) but is worth the wait.  The steam is powerful and doesn't spit a lot of water in the milk.  You can make some nice micro foam with just a little practice.  We make the espresso in a stove top mocha pot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from you will be pleased Does a great job. What more would you need to know? Won't accept this review unless it is longer. Is this long enough? Apparently not. It says 38 characters are required. Am I getting close?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like it! I've had this stovetop steamer for a few weeks I like it. It takes a bit longer then expected to get up to boiling temp, which is why I gave it 4 stars. Steaming wond conducts heat so milk gets stuck on their so you have to scrub it off right away. But If you have no counter space or tiny kitchen it's a great space saver.(Reason why I bought it) I pair it with the Mypressi V2,and it's perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Milk Steamer I have know used the Bellman Stovetop Steamer several times and it works excellently. I would recommend putting much less water then instructed. Maybe fill it up only about 1/4 of the way or about 1.5-2 inches of water. This allows it to heat up much quicker and you still have plenty of steam for several lattes. Getting the proper milk consistency takes a little bit of a learning curve IMHO. I'm used to commercial machines, and steaming with this is a little different. You can still get excellent milk consistency for latte art.

Love love the steamer -HOWEVER, after maybe 6 mos of  use, water is leaking from the bottom through the "screw" which doesn't seem to be at all loose (can't tighten it), but of course that's decreasing the pressure - any ideas for a fix??

How does this model differ from the Bellman CX25S?

Asked by: EnjieP
Hello. I believe that particular model has the ability to pull single espresso shots as well. The model we carry is completely dedicated to milk steaming.
