The 5 Best Milk Frothers

By Andrea Cannon on 7 May 2015 0 comments

Do you love having an upscale coffeehouse creation every morning, but hate the high price tag? Then whip up your own cappuccinos, lattes, and fancy hot chocolate drinks using an affordable milk frother. You may never buy another expensive coffeehouse drink or whipped cream again. After all, why would you when you can create barista results for a fraction of the price at home?

What is a Milk Frother?

A milk frother is a small kitchen tool that can produce light, airy froth and foam for all of your favorite hot and iced espresso drinks. In just a matter of seconds, hot or cold milk can be transformed into a rich creamy topping on your latte. Frothers can also be used to quickly mix together light ingredients, such as hot chocolate, sauces, powdered drinks, and scrambled eggs. It can also be used for low-fat and non-dairy milks, as well as soy or almond milk.
