Adding a rich, foamy layer of your favorite milk to your drinks will make you feel like you’re at your favorite café without ever leaving your home! Try these milk frothers to take your morning beverages to the next level.
Choosing a Milk Frother
Here are some things to consider before making a selection:
- Do you want an automatic milk frother or a manual one? This question is fundamental to your choice. Automatic frothers are super convenient, but they need a power source and require counter space. Handheld frothers are easy to use and store. A well-designed manual frother can make great foam with very little effort.
- Does the frother work with almond milk or other types of plant-based milks? Most frothers work with all kinds of milk and with dairy substitutes, but be sure to check if that’s how you intend to use it.
- Do you want a precise temperature or texture for your foam? If you want precision in temperature and texture, an automatic frother might be your best option.
- How easy is it to clean the frother? Automatic frothers may take extra care for cleaning. Manual cleaners are usually pretty simple to maintain.
Our recommended milk frothers will deliver the rich, creamy, airy foam that makes café drinks so special!
