For this post, I have put together a collection of the best milk frothers currently available.
What is a milk frother?
While there are different types, a milk frother simply adds air to the milk by quickly agitating it. This increase the volume of the milk and gives it a much lighter texture.
Types of milk frothers
There are two common types of frothers: handheld whisks and electric frothers.
The handheld versions quickly spin the milk to add air to achieve the desired texture. However it does not heat the milk, so that must be done at the same time in a pot on the stove.
Check out this quick how-to video:
Electric frothers have the added benefit of simultaneously heating and/or frothing the milk.
The following milk frothers use the latest innovative components to meet your needs and help to ensure you to create the perfect beverage.
