Smart Moose pitchers need to be activated and programmed upon receipt. It takes just a few simple steps to set the texture (= thickness/density of the microfoam) and the temperature* of the steamed milk, exactly to your wishes.
You only have to activate a new smart pitcher once. The texture and temperature you indicate are then set for every steaming cycle of this particular smart pitcher.
Once the initial recipe is set, you can always adjust texture and temperature pitcher settings afterwards if you want. Click here to see how to adjust the recipe on your smart pitcher.
Programming a smart Moose pitcher for the first time

3. Gently tap 'programme pitcher' on the touch display. The screen below will appear.
First, set the texture of the microfoam by moving your finger along the slider.
The more you move the slider to the left, the thinner/runnier the texture of the steamed m*ilk. The more you move the slider to the right, the thicker/denser the texture.
Click on > in the right bottom corner to move to the second step.
Second, set the temperature of the microfoam by moving your finger along the slider. The more you move the slider to the left, the colder. The more you move the slider to the right, the hotter.
