What to Look for When Buying a Milk Frother
- Heats milk and froths
Look for automatic milk frothers that heat milk and froth at the same time. It’s the easiest since it’s just one step but they do cost more.
- Creates microfoam
Microfoam is foam that’s made up of tiny bubbles that creates a velvety smooth texture. Big bubbles are what you want to avoid.
- Easy to clean
The best milk frothers are simple to clean, without a lot of small, loose parts. Milk jugs that detach from the base are the easiest to clean.
