7) The Capresso frothPRO
The Capresso frothPro comes in different colors and if you take all the colors together this is the best sold milk frother.
Pros of the Capresso frothPRO: This frother gives a good thick milk froth! And next to that it is a very simple machine to operate and the pitcher and lid are dishwasher proof which makes the cleaning easy.
Cons of the Capresso frothPRO: Sound a bit stupid to complain about this but the power cord is really short so if your output is far you will need an extra cable. And , much more important, the milk pitcher itself gets hot so be careful not to touch it and take care where you put it down when it is still hot. The frothing takes about 3-4 minutes so it takes some patience.

Type of milk foamers
This page is about milk frothers if you are searching for a milk steamer check this out. For those of us who didn’t know: The difference between milk steamers vs milk frothers vs heated milk:
“Frothing milk” — Is about the texture. The foamy top on your coffee. By “agitating the milk” you’ll get foam. This can be done in different ways like one of those mini battery whisks or by a plunger or by a electric milk frother. You can do this with milk of any temperature.
“Steaming milk” — Is about the taste. It’s using the milk’s sweetness. You use steam to bring that sweetness out, it’s a kind of stretching the milk by steam jets. This method creates a more luxurious micro-foam.
“Heating milk” — Well this one you know. It is easy as it just means heating it so your coffee doesn’t cool down when you put it in. Or heat it to make a hot chocolate milk. It doesn’t mater whether you put it in the microwave or in a pan on the stove.
Older Milk Frother models:
Nespresso 3194-us-bk aeroccino and milk frother
Pros of the Nespresso 3194-Us-Bk Aeroccino and Milk Frother: It takes about 1 minute to make Warm, frothy milk, so it is quite fast. The foam is nicely consistent and it gives enough froth for two regular servings. It is easily cleaned and a very quiet frother, almost silent! It makes both, warm or cool milk and it has one stirring device for froth and one for latte.
Cons of the Nespresso 3194-us-bk aeroccino: With a steam wand the milk gets hotter. This frother cant’be used for heavy cream as the spinner is not strong enough.
Tips for the Nespresso 3194-us-bk aeroccino:
– whole milk gives the best results
– half & half milk will give more cream
– Doesn’t work well with rice milk, soy milk and skim milk

– Use Zero fat milk.
– Heat up in a microwave for one minute
– Pump the milk gently while bringing the plunger above the froth level to create more air into the milk.

Pros of the Melitta 43553 Milk Frother: This milk frother is easy to use and easy to clean as it leaves no burned milk on the bottom as some machines do. It gives dense and creamy froth. It is really handy that the heating element is separated from the frother cordless. In total a well built quality.
Cons of the Melitta 43553 Milk Frother: It seems to be a really loud frother according to some reviews.
Capresso Froth TEC Automatic Milk Frother
Pros of the Capresso Froth TEC: Finally a frother that you can put in the dishwasher (the glass vessel and the froth disk). The froth it makes is dense with real small bubbles. It is long lasting froth so the foam stays a while. The design is special. Probably like it or hate it.
Cons of the Capresso Froth TEC: This is not one of the fastest frothers out there, so not great if you often use it for big groups. Also a lot of reviewers complain that it is difficult to wash on hand. There are also some complains that it is a little small for 2 cups of coffee.
