Milk froth is a great touch to a number of different coffee drinks and adds a soft velvety texture. It can also be used to make fancy designs just like a coffeehouse may.
Making milk froth is a lot easier than you may think. Milk frothers make froth by whisking milk at a high rate of speed. A couple ounces of milk can be turned into froth in under a minute.
Below I reviewed the top 4 milk frothers available, and the benefits and features of each model. Below the reviews, I have written a buying guide to explain what you should consider before buying.
Epica Automatic Electric Milk Frother and Heater Carafe Review
The stainless steel body of the carafe, and vacuum insulation allows you to keep your liquid at a consistent temperature.
Three temperature settings allow for: Cold Froth, Hot Froth, and Hot Milk. Simply pour in your milk, pick your setting and the frother does all of the work.
Unlike a stick frother, the Epica makes a much finer, and smoother froth with smaller air bubbles. This model is a bit harder to clean than a stick model, but can still be rinsed out fairly easily. It holds up to 8.5 ounces of liquid.
Kuissential Slickfroth 2.0 Review
The Slickfroth has a sleek design and stainless steel whisking head.
Due to the simple design, the batteries last for a good amount of time. I am a fan of how easy to clean the business end is.
Simply turn the frother on while holding it in warm soapy water.
Secura Automatic Electric Milk Frother and Warmer Review
To operate pour in your milk, up to 250ml (8.5 ounces) Press the power button, and the heater and the frother will turn on. Hold the power button for a few more seconds and only the frother will run. It is as simple as that!
Hot or cold drinks are now fun and easy to make.
I love that this model includes a detachable base so it is much more portable. The sleek stainless steel carafe is vacuum insulated and will keep your liquid or froth at just the right temperature.
Again simple stick models are easier to clean, but the Secura comes with a handy cleaning brush. A 2 year warranty is also included.

Cappuccinos, lattes, and even velvety hot chocolate are now within your reach.
This frother is very easy to clean, simply run it while submerged in soapy water, then rinse.
Make sure you do not submerge the housing in water.
A 60 day money back guarantee is included.
Milk Frother Buying Guide
In this buying guide we give you a brief overview of what you should look for when buying a milk frother. Know your options and you will certainly buy the best milk frother for you and your needs.
Prices vary wildly with various different styles available. A good stick style model can range from $10 to $20. If you are looking for a frother with a carafe you will generally find a price range of $40 to $80
There are a lot of cheaply made milk frothers available to buy. While the cheaply made versions may work a couple of times, you are almost certain that it will break and need to be replaced eventually.
Make sure that you look for a durable frother that has a stainless steel whisking head and whisking shaft. If you are buying a frother with a carafe make sure the carafe is insulated and sturdy.
Stick style frothers operate off battery power, make sure to check if batteries are included with your purchase.
If your frother has a carafe it is generally has a cord and plugs into your wall.
There are also non-powered frothers that work by you manually whisking the milk with a plunger-type apparatus, they are a lot more work!
Stick frothers are naturally very portable, and can easily be stored in a drawer.
Carafe models do need to be plugged in, but certain models have a removable carafe that allows you to bring the froth wherever you need.
Easy to Clean
I like easy to clean kitchen products and if it can be put in the dishwasher it makes me happy.
Stick style frothers because they are battery powered can not be put in the dishwasher. However, they are very easy to clean with warm soapy water.
Carafe style models can also not be put in the dishwasher, and are hand clean only. They generally are also fairly easy to clean.
