5 Best Milk Frothers

5 Best Milk Frothers

After 19 hours of research evaluating 58 products, we picked Epica Automatic Electric Milk Frother and Heater Carafe as our top choice.

There are some people that can’t break their coffee to go habit because a basic cup of coffee is never going to cut it. Of course, you could always up your game and invest in a super-automatic coffee maker and all the delicious beans that you need to go with it.

But, if you’re trying to save a few bucks and make scrumptious cappuccinos and lattes at home, you’ll need a milk frother.

Fortunately, you’ll find that many of the best products are less than $50. (Now how many coffees would it take for your new frother to pay for itself?)

There are two major types of milk frothers available (as separate units from semi- or super-automatic machines). There are electric milk frothers that plug into the wall and do all the work for you (except pouring milk in and out). The variety is handheld. That doesn’t mean you need to do a lot of work; you’re not whisking – just pushing a button.

If you’re serious about coffee, we strongly suggest you opt for an electric milk frother, but if you’re just curious or on a strict budget, the handheld ones get the job done. Oh, and we’ve done all the hard work by researching the best options for you.

Now all you need are some incredible coffee recipes to really take your home barista skills to the next level. (And don't worry, the folks at Food.com have found those for you!)
