Steam all the way on;
Lower pitcher quickly to bring tip to right below the surface;
Stretch;
Raise pitcher (keeping wand in center of pitcher);
Slowly adjust angle to get roll over the tip;
Steam and finish.

Also...
Refrigerate the pitcher and use more milk than normal.
Thanks for the suggestions, they helped. Then, this morning I tried the old "plug two of the holes with round wooden toothpicks" trick. The steamed milk, only a partial pitcher's worth, was much better!

Which graph?

This one?

okay...

well, take the hypothetical values for each bean in the first graph at each temperature, and add them together, and then plot the results. it should look something like the second graph. hypothetically.

With Chris' data table; a polar plot or spider diagram might be another way to represent the data also.

I'm still wondering why I wouldn't want to tinker with an M5?

The parts required to return the device to working condition are too expensive. :lol:
