I have been using a lot of milk frothers since before buying sunbeam milkfrother. Most of them are jug-type milk frothers. I cannot even do latte art. 

This is the one where the jug can be detachable from the power base. Also, I can do latte art using the jug that cannot be done using the other milk frothers.

Shortcomings on Sunbeam EM0180:(Tried & reviewed sunbeam milk frother practically)

Although the milkfrother has a lot of features to operate with. A few difficulties are happening when I am using this. That is, the frother is not dishwasher safe. Placing any part of the appliance in the dishwasher may short circuit & ruin the electrical boards in the frother.

The milk jug is detachable from the powerbase. The powerbase cannot be washable using the dishwasher. 

Due to the detachment, you need to be careful while frothing. The maximum level ‘M’ should be maintained to avoid spilling out milk. 

Avoid spilling out the water over the powerbase to maintain the longevity of the frother device.
