I've had mine for about the same time. Works great.

I will add to superbigjay's 2 cents: we have had one for over a year and it works great. Mother in law loved her latte every time she visited, so we got her one for Christmas. If you are looking for a frother that works well and is easy to use and clean, I would recommend this one. That said, this is the regular price from what I have seen.

I'm partly interested, and partly skeptical.

a) can someone explain the advantage of using this vs: heating some milk in a cup in the microwave and then using a $10 hand-held frother?
b) The $50 version has a max capacity of 125ml of milk before frothing for a latte — half a cup, or 4oz. A medium (or 'grande' @ starbucks) is 16oz, and technically, only 2oz of that is espresso. Even if you double the milk volume through frothing (more like a cappuccino than a latte), you'd need 7oz of pre-froth capacity.

Am I wrong? Should I stick with my microwaved-then-wand-frothed lattes?

I'll chime in on owning this for 6 months now. I had two Nespresso units fail on me and was sick of spending over $100 on them. Went with this and had mixed results. My issues with the Nespresso ones was that they'd boil the milk (after 2+yrs). This Secura started doing that on and off after about 4 months, not at the 6 month mark it's boiling it all the time. Basically 1/4 the normal foam and burning hot milk. It's somehow a lot harder to clean than the Nespresso ones too, always need to dive back in 2 or 3 times to get the edge or around the wisk area.

Same, we bought this to replace a Nespresso one that had failed.
The volume of milk is fine for a single coffee. It works fine and all, but we found that the cleaning isn't as easy as they say. There is always a bit of cooked milk stuck to the bottom so you have to clean it thoroughly. The Nespresso had the same issue, so we're fine with it.

I wouldn't say it is life changing, but at half the price of the Nespresso one, it is fine for our needs.

And yeah, $50 is regular price.

For cleaning we found a dry paper towel, then rinse clean worked best. You can see the burnt milk come off clean with the paper towel.
