The best milk frothers you can buy
- If you love cappuccinos, you need a great milk frother.
- After much research and testing, we found that the HIC Milk Creamer Frother is the best you can buy.
It's never been easier to make a perfect cup of coffee at home, but you need the right equipment to do it. If you're a big fan of cappuccinos and lattes with splendid milk foam, you're going to want a great milk frother in your collection of coffee-making products.
We've researched dozens of milk frothers and tested a few of them ourselves to find the best milk frothers you can buy. There are many different kinds of milk frothers: manual, stationary electric, and handheld electric ones.
We first tried the handheld electric frothers because they were relatively cheap. However, the handheld electric frothers rarely delivered on their promise of making milk creamy and frothy. Many of them also involve batteries, which can be annoying to constantly replace. As such, we haven't included any battery-based electric options in this guide.There are plenty of stationary, plug-in electric milk frothers that will produce excellent foamy milk, and we've put the best ones in this guide. However, the best electric milk frothers are significantly more expensive than handheld electronic ones and manual ones.
After much testing, our best experience has been with manual milk frothers that cost less than $20. Since there's no electricity involved, you do have to froth the milk yourself by pumping the milk full of air inside the jug. You also have to heat the milk after you've frothed it, but you'll have more control over how hot it gets. Even though there is more work involved with manual milk frothers, you'll get the best results for the least amount of money.
We've included two great manual milk frothers as our top picks for most people, but if you're dead set on having an electric milk frother, we've included three recommended options ranging in price from about $40 to $130.
