Care to explain why? I was in the coffee business for years and we sold this exact model, it was pretty decent.

If you just say "Junk" because you compare it to a $100 milk frother, then you are ignorant.. they are totally different products..
Thanks OP, bought 25!

I saw this and wanted it but couldn't bring myself to order it for curb side pickup by itself. Nothing else I want from CTC. *first world covid problems*

Better off just using a cheap French press to froth. The motors in these die so quickly and easily

There are some things in the world that shouldn't exist just because they're cheap...or should exist just because they're expensive. (Whether we're talking about this product or otherwise)

e.g.

Maybe you can inform us on whether the OP frother is any good? (Though maybe I'm assuming 'selling it' equates to some degree of usage experience)

(i.e. If it's junk, state why so. If it's good, state why so. Just because it's a "product", it doesn't mean it's automatically useful until "proven otherwise".)

(p.s. What is the 'model' of this? There's no brand name, UPC...etc)

Here's a video of a (visually) similar frother:

Would this beat an egg or is it too fast or under powered?

Lol, I used to have this machine in my shop (it is NOT an "Aldi Albiano" or whatever- it's a rebrand)
This is a $175-200 usd (and not 300eu/350usd as the video suggest) machine. It's known as the cheapest semi-automatic thermoblock brewer with grinder.. Why should it not exist is beyond my mind, as you can still pull decent shot of it.
We had 2-3 in our repair shop. We were buying them for parts because customer came with those for repair but no parts are sold separately. Mind you, MANY Breville part will work in this machine (and even improve it's quality..)

Back to the frother, keep in mind most peoples drink cheap coffee. They don't need warm frothed milk in their instant-coffee coffee. This frother will froth just fine, it's easy to clean, and it also serve other purpose (whipping eggs, mixing hot chocolate..)

It's how much Aldi UK is selling it:

The frother, is it a brushless motor? If not, how long can we expect the motor to last?

After a quick google search, company can buy them for as low as $150 usd in bulk, (a company like Aldi that get it modified a little bit with a logo and buy them in huge quantity probably pay like $100 a piece..)

Might or might not be 100% this one, but from a quick glance I'm pretty sure it is.
Refer the the video in the listing for a slightly different model that has a white gauge, no logo under the gauge, and square grinder. 100% is the same, and most likely the one Aldi buy.

I had this, tried to use it beat egg whites and milk. Once the liquids get too thick it can’t spin anymore.

Got something similar at London drugs few weeks ago for 12$. Yes over paid but was desperate. Great little gadget to mix drinks. Great for making foam top drinks.

Canadian Tire curb side pick is the worse haha...
I made two phone orders and one online order.
The online order was cancelled even though the item I ordered had hundreds in stock at time of order and the two phone orders... well, I never heard back.

Home Depot curb side pick up is very organized and I had an excellent experience.

I have one of these (10 years old, slightly different model) and it’s great at mixing home-made salad dressing. Great deal for this price IMO.

After having a couple of these hot deal units fail within 2 to 4 months, used 3 times a day for no more than 20 seconds each time, I decided to roll my own. No batteries required and 30,000 rpm instantly! I now froth in a tall vase, never longer than 3 seconds. ;)
