I've watched about a dozen of these "how to use your french press to froth milk" videos on YouTube, and every time I do it, the milk still comes out flat as a board. For one thing, it's not clear to me whether one is supposed to pump fast or slow (or if it matters), and for another thing, I count at least four different variations on the pumping motion from different videos: a deep cycle with no crowning through the surface tension at the top of the milk, a deep cycle with crowning through the surface tension, a shallow cycle near the top but without crowning, and shallow cycle with crowning. Clearly at least one of these is right and at least one of them is wrong, but I've yet to find any guidance on that issue. Third, some videos seem to be using cold milk and others hot — when I assumed that hot (@160F) was the only way to go. And finally, some people seem to cant their plunger at a slight angle, and others pump straight up and down. Surely some of these things matter — and surely at least one of them is why it so far never, ever, ever works for me. But heck if I can figure it out.

It finally worked perfectly after I removed the upper part! thanks brother.
but I don't use the same press for both milk and coffee, I use another cheap one just for milk.

That's awesome! ._.

I usually drink it sweetened with coffee. If you add sugar and heat it first, you get a sweet froth like coffee house espresso drinks. (I was using battery powered whip /aereator to get the same result, but this is a lot faster.)
