About Milk frothers
Most modern kitchens boast a milk frother nowadays. This tool is used to heat and/or froth milk that can then be added to various milk-based beverages: from the classic cappuccino, latte and latte macchiato to the trendy flat white, espresso macchiato, coffee cocktails, chai latte, cocoa or hot chocolate. Milk foam can even be used to prepare a variety of dishes.
There are lots of different tools a sworn fan of milk-based drinks can use to froth some delicious milk foam: for example, those who value maximum convenience can go for a bean-to-cup coffee machine capable of producing milk foam at the touch of a button, while true coffee connoisseurs with some serious barista skills might choose an espresso machine instead and froth their milk foam manually. If you prefer a different brewing method though, or if you don’t feel like investing in brewing equipment that’s more complex (and more expensive), a stand-alone milk frother may just be the ideal choice for you. Frothers like these are often purchased by owners of coffee machines without an automated milk system: this might be a bean-to-cup coffee machine that doesn’t froth milk at all or a capsule coffee machine dedicated to brewing black coffees only. Users of various coffee brewing tools also tend to choose stand-alone frothers for their milk-based drinks.
Coffee Friend’s range of products includes a variety of milk frothers produced by some of the world’s best-known manufacturers. Feel free to explore our assortment and choose from different manual, semi-automatic or fully automated options!
Manual Milk Frothers
If you want to froth milk affordably, conveniently and with no need for complex maintenance procedures, a manual milk frother is your best bet. Plunger-style milk frothers are especially popular nowadays. Using a milk frothing tool of this kind, you first have to pour some milk into the frother and heat it. It’s important to pay attention to the kind of hobs your frother is suited for—that’s especially true for those who use induction plates. To obtain foam that’s particularly sweet and yummy, heat milk to a temperature of no more than 65 °C (a special milk thermometer will come in handy here). Once the milk’s been heated, start frothing it by moving the plunger up and down. When the foam reaches the desired texture, pour it straight onto a cup of coffee. Frothers of this type are usually made of aluminium or stainless steel, so they’re particularly durable and easy to maintain. A plunger-style frother is also a great choice for those who tend to enjoy their milk-based beverages in a group of friends: thanks to how capacious these frothers are, they can be used to make enough milk foam for several servings.
Manual milk frothers can also take the shape of shaker-like utensils. These tools froth milk without heating it. All you have to do is fill one of the cups with milk all the way up to the special mark, connect the lower and upper cups, then shake. If you’re making an iced drink, you can go ahead and use the cold foam as is—and if you’re planning on brewing a hot beverage, feel free to heat the foam in a microwave (make sure to use a microwave-safe container though).
It’s interesting to note that French presses can very well double up as manual milk frothers too. While they’re primarily used for brewing coffee or infusing tea, you can also pour some pre-heated milk into your French press and then move the plunger up and down to make some delicious milk foam.
To sum up, a manual milk frother is a great choice for those who value convenience and are currently on a budget. They don’t require electricity, by the way, so you can even take a manual frother with you when going on a trip!
Semi-Automatic Milk Frothers
A semi-automatic milk frother is an excellent tool too. These frothers are handheld and usually powered by batteries. A special nozzle helps you produce delicious, stiff milk foam easily and quickly. High-end devices of this kind often feature a switch for speed adjustment, so you can obtain the exact texture you desire. Semi-automatic frothers are particularly compact, and the fact that most of them don’t require electricity makes them even more convenient to take with you on a trip.
Automatic Milk Frothers
If you’re going for maximum speed and convenience, an automatic milk frother is the device for you. Compared to other types of frothers, it’s more expensive, yet its astounding ease of use keeps this tool at the top of the bestseller list. Simply fill the frother up with milk, press a button and watch it do the rest for you! The milk’s automatically heated to the right temperature and frothed using special mixers. Most models let you choose between different kinds of mixers based on the amount of milk foam you plan on making. You can have your milk heated, or heated and then frothed. High-end automatic frothers are often capable of producing cold milk foam and usually feature temperature adjustment options along with other novel functions, such as an integrated hot chocolate program. If that sounds tempting, take a look at Bialetti “Choco & Milk”: as its name suggests, it can serve you with both yummy milk foam and delectable hot chocolate.
